Disease relevance of Myocardium


Psychiatry related information on Myocardium


High impact information on Myocardium

  • Adenosine 5'-triphosphate: a P2-purinergic agonist in the myocardium [10].
  • Skeletal and cardiac muscles contain different RyR and DHPR isoforms and both contribute to the diversity in cardiac and skeletal excitation-contraction coupling mechanisms [11].
  • Potassium currents in the myocardium can be classified into one of two general categories: 1) inward rectifying currents such as IK1, IKACh, and IKATP; and 2) primarily voltage-gated currents such as IKs, IKr, IKp, IKur, and Ito [12].
  • Transcriptional profiling uncovered the aberrant expression of a unique panel of atrial and conduction system-restricted target genes, as well as the ectopic, high level BMP-10 expression in the adult ventricular myocardium [13].
  • Here, we present biophysical/biochemical studies in muscle LIM protein (MLP) deficient cardiac muscle that support a selective role for this Z disc protein in mechanical stretch sensing [14].
