Unique isoform-specific properties of calsequestrin in the heart and skeletal muscle

Wei, Lan; Hanna, Amy; Beard, Nicole; Dulhunty, Angela


Calcium signaling in myocytes is dependent on the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) calcium release channel and the calcium buffering protein in the sarcoplasmic reticulum, cardiac calsequestrin (CSQ2). The overall properties of CSQ2 and its regulation of RyR2 have not been explored in detail or directly compared with skeletal CSQ1 and its regulation of the skeletal RyR1, with physiological ionic strength and Ca2+ concentrations. We find that there are major differences between the two isoforms...[Show more]
