Cooling and pH jump-induced calcium release from isolated cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum.


Rapid-cooling contracture in cardiac muscle preparations is thought to be caused by the release of Ca2+ from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR), but the mechanism of this release is unknown. Cooling of isolated canine cardiac SR from 37 to 4 degrees C resulted in the net release of enough Ca2+ to account for rapid-cooling contracture. The release of Ca2+ on… (More)
