Phospholamban is required for CaMKII-dependent recovery of Ca transients and SR Ca reuptake during acidosis in cardiac myocytes.


Initially during acidosis, Ca transient amplitude (Delta[Ca]i) and the rate constant of [Ca]i decline (k(Ca)) are decreased, but later during acidosis Delta[Ca]i and k(Ca) partially recover. This recovery in rat myocytes could be inhibited by KN-93 suggesting that CaMKII-dependent protein phosphorylation (and enhanced SR Ca uptake) may be responsible. To… (More)
