BACKGROUD: Although excitation-contraction (EC) coupling in skeletal muscle relies on physical activation of the skeletal ryanodine receptor (RyR1) Ca2+ release channel by dihydropyridine receptors (DHPRs), the activation pathway between the DHPR and RyR1 remains unknown. However, the pathway includes the DHPR β1a subunit which is integral to EC coupling and activates RyR1. In this manuscript, we explore the isoform specificity of β1a activation of RyRs and the β1a binding site on RyR1....[Show more]
