Redox potential and the response of cardiac ryanodine receptors to CLIC-2, a member of the glutathione S-transferase structural family

Jalilian , Chris; Gallant, Esther; Board, Philip; Dulhunty, Angela

Description

The type 2 chloride intracellular channel, CLIC-2, is a member of the glutathione S-transferase structural family and a suppressor of cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) Ca2+ channels located in the membrane of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR). Modulators of RyR2 activity can alter cardiac contraction. Since both CLIC-2 and RyR2 are modified by redox reactions, we speculated that the action of CLIC-2 on RyR2 may depend on redox potential. We used a GSH:GSSG buffer system to produce mild changes in...[Show more]
