Glutathione transferase M2 variants inhibit ryanodine receptor function in adult mouse cardiomyocytes
Release of Ca2+ from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) through the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) is an essential step in cardiac excitation-contraction coupling. Excess Ca2+ release due to overactive RyR2 can cause arrhythmia that can lead to cardiac arrest. Fragments derived from the carboxy-terminal domain of human glutathione transferase M2 (GSTM2C) specifically inhibit RyR2 activity. Our aim was to further improve this inhibition by mutagenesis and to assess the therapeutic potential of...[Show more]
