Sorcin is a penta-EF hand Ca2+-binding protein that associates with both cardiac ryanodine receptors and L-type Ca2+ channels and has been implicated in the regulation of intracellular Ca2+ cycling. To better define the function of sorcin, we characterized transgenic mice in which sorcin was overexpressed in the heart. Transgenic mice developed normally with no evidence of cardiac hypertrophy and no change in expression of other calcium regulatory proteins. In vivo hemodynamics revealed… CONTINUE READING
