Ca2+ mobilization in fetal-human cardiac myocytes is stimulated by isoproterenol and inhibited by ryanodine

Dear Editor: Cultured cardiac myocytes from several species are used extensively to assess the cellular physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology of the heart. Although human cardiac myocytes are investigated, they usually are obtained from diseased myocardium (16) and are limited to right atrial specimens (6). Therefore, data from human ceils in… CONTINUE READING
