Sample text

Cardiac contraction is initiated by the influx of extracellular calcium through L-type calcium channels (LTCCs) in response to electric stimulation. The rise in intracellular calcium triggers calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) via the ryanodine receptor (RyR). Calcium then associates with troponin C in the sarcomere and stimulates contraction (systole). Calcium is released from the sarcomere (diastole) and removed the cytoplasm by resequestration into the SR by the SR calcium ATPase (SERCA), extrusion from the cell by the sarcolemmal sodium-calcium exchanger (NCX), or extrusion from the cell by the sarcolemmal calcium ATPase.

This Ca2ϩ influx through reverse mode NCX can be sufficient to increase intracellular Ca2ϩ during systole and contribute to contraction (83,84). In addition, Ca2ϩ influx through reverse mode NCX can be a significant source of Ca2ϩ to load the SR, especially in CHF (83). Finally, even though Ca2ϩ influx through reverse mode NCX is not an independent trigger of SR Ca2ϩ release, it appears to work in concert with ICa-L to modulate ECC. The idea that a change in the activity of the NCX contributes to the altered contractility (Ca2ϩ regulation) of the failing myocyte has been studied.

77) showed a diminished responsiveness of ICa-L to adrenergic stimulation in hypertrophied/failing guinea pig hearts, and Laurent et al. (78) observed similar defects in ventricular myocytes from a pacing-induced canine HF model. The defects in ICa-L regulation by adrenergic signaling pathways are multifactorial and include reductions in β-AR density and uncoupling of agonist binding from activation of adenylyl cyclase. There are a few studies that are not consistent with the idea of blunted adrenergic effects on cardiac Ca2ϩ channels in failing myocytes.
