Exploiting Peptidomimetics to Synthesize Compounds That Activate Ryanodine Receptor Calcium Release Channels

Robinson, Ken; Easton, Christopher; Dulhunty, Angela; Casarotto, Marco


Ryanodine receptor (RyR) Ca2+-release channels are essential for contraction in skeletal and cardiac muscle and are prime targets for modification of contraction in disorders that affect either the skeletal or heart musculature. We designed and synthesized a number of compounds with structures based on a naturally occurring peptide (A peptides) that modifies the activity of RyRs. In total, 34 compounds belonging to eight different classes were prepared. The compounds were screened for their...[Show more]
