Calmodulin regulation of excitation-contraction coupling in cardiac myocytes.


Calmodulin (CaM) as a ubiquitous Ca2+ sensor interacts with multiple key molecules involved in excitation-contraction (EC) coupling. In the present study, we report that adenoviral expression of a mutant CaM lacking all of its four Ca2+-binding sites, CaM(1-4), at a level 6.5-fold over endogenous CaM markedly increases the amplitude and abbreviates the… (More)
