.... It has been suggested that birds use intracellular Ca 2+ stored within the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) to power contractile function, but neither SR Ca 2+ content nor the cross-talk between channels underlying Ca 2+ -induced Ca 2+ release (CICR) have been studied in adult birds. Here we used voltage...

... NO production, which, acting through a non-classical cGMP-independent pathway, induces a phospholamban (PLN)-S-nitrosylation-dependent increase of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR)-Ca 2+ reuptake ( Fig. 2 ) ( Garofalo et al., 2009 ; Cerra and Imbrogno, 2012 ). The intrinsic regulation of cardiac function...

...Hanna Korajoki; Matti Vornanen SUMMARY In the heart of rainbow trout ( Oncorhynchus mykiss ), the rate of contraction and Ca 2+ uptake into the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) are faster in atrial than ventricular muscle, and contraction force relies more on SR Ca 2+ stores after acclimation to cold...

... ), density, and steady-state and maximal sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca 2+ content (ssSR load and maxSR load ). Current–voltage relations, peak I Ca density and charge density of I Ca were greatest in mackerel and yellowfin at all temperatures tested. I Ca density and kinetics were temperature sensitive...

...Hanna Korajoki; Matti Vornanen SUMMARY Calsequestrin (CASQ) is the main Ca 2+ binding protein within the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) of the vertebrate heart. The contribution of SR Ca 2+ stores to contractile activation is larger in atrial than ventricular muscle, and in ectothermic fish hearts...

...). The fatty acid composition of mitochondrial membranes and sarcoplasmic reticulum can be monitored by measuring total muscle phospholipids because all phospholipids are equally affected by diet. Only extreme regimes of endurance training can lead to increments in oxidative capacity matching those induced...

We used stereological analysis of muscle cross-sections to quantify the volume densities of contractile elements, sarcoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria and intracellular lipids. We found that mitochondrial...

Changes in calcium distribution in the components of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) were examined on the SBM fibre cryosections. In resting fibres, the calcium concentration was highest...
