Repletion of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca after ryanodine in rat ventricular myocytes.

Abstract

The ryanodine (R)-induced loss of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ and the abilities of the SR to accumulate Ca2+ and participate in contractile activation after R were studied in rat ventricular myocytes. Indo 1 fluorescence (IF) indexed cytosolic Ca2+, and caffeine assayed SR Ca2+. Before R, there was a negative staircase, and the SR accumulated Ca2+ at… (More)
