  • Striking correlations are found between cardiac contractility and Ca2+ binding to isolated cardiac sarcolemma in rabbit, neonatal rat, and frog ventricular tissue. Deviations from this correlation are seen in the adult rat ventricle and rabbit atrium. The observation of this correlation in the three former tissues and under various ionic conditions suggests that this correlation is not coincidental and that Ca2+ bound to the cardiac sarcolemma is of major importance in the control of myocardial… CONTINUE READING
