TO THE EDITOR: A recent Editorial Focus in this journal (7) addresses the newly recognized role of the sodium pump as both an ion transport protein and a hormone receptor with its own signaling cascade. The relative importance of the cardiotonic steroids (CTS) as endogenous signaling hormones versus their ability to inhibit the sodium pump is of great interest. Indeed, the article noted that “although all digitalislike compounds inhibit Na-K-ATPase-mediated transport, they differ considerably… CONTINUE READING
