Regulation and Modulation of Cardiac L-type Ca2+ Channels
Research in my laboratory centers around a class of ion channel expressed in cardiac muscle (and all excitable cells) called CaV1.2. These L-type Ca2+ channels play an essential role in cardiac excitation-contraction coupling (EC coupling) and so it follows that any alterations in their activity or gating exerts profound effects on cardiac performance.
