Calmodulin kinase II inhibition prevents arrhythmias in RyR2(R4496C+/-) mice with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia.

Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is an inherited arrhythmogenic disease characterized by life-threatening arrhythmias elicited by adrenergic activation. CPVT is caused by mutations in the cardiac ryanodine receptor gene (RyR2). In vitro studies demonstrated that RyR2 mutations respond to sympathetic activation with an abnormal… CONTINUE READING
