In the adult mammalian heart, the majority of Ca2+ required for contraction is released from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) via the Ca2+-release channel or ryanodine receptor (RyR). Such release is dependent upon a relatively small influx of Ca2+ entering the cell across the sarcolemma (SL) by means of the L-type Ca2+ channel or the dihydropyridine receptor (DHPR). In lower vertebrates, there is indirect evidence suggesting that Ca2+ influx across the SL may be sufficient to support… CONTINUE READING
