To explore how the cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) functions over a range of temperatures, we used whole-cell voltage clamp combined with rapid caffeine application to study SR Ca(2+) accumulation, release and steady-state content in atrial myocytes from rainbow trout. Myocytes were isolated from rainbow trout acclimated to 14 degrees C, and the effect of varying stimulation pulse number, frequency and experimental temperature (7 degrees C, 14 degrees C and 21 degrees C) on SR function was… CONTINUE READING
