Intercalated discs are the membrane sites where individual cardiomyocytes are connected to each other. Adherens-, desmosomal-, and gap junctions are situated in the intercalated disc and ensure mechanical coupling between cells and enable propagation of electrical impulses throughout the heart. A number of cardiac disorders, for example arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy, have been described in which an impaired mechanical coupling leads to electrical dysfunction, with… Expand
