Objectives To investigate mRNA expression changes of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA2a) and calcium releasing channel type 2 ryanodine receptor (RYR2) of atrium in patients with atrial fibrillation. Methods 39 patients with mitral valve disease were divided into three groups, namely sinus rhythm group, atrial fibrillation less than 6 month group and atrial fibrillation more than 6 month group. during the open heart surgery,100 mg of tissues were obtained from the right atrium… CONTINUE READING
