Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors and pacemaker rhythms.


Intracellular Ca(2+) plays an important role in the control of the heart rate through the interaction between Ca(2+) release by ryanodine receptors in the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) and the extrusion of Ca(2+) by the sodium-calcium exchanger which generates an inward current. A second type of SR Ca(2+) release channel, the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate… (More)
