Resum
Among the different potassium channels present in cardiac myocytes, the small conductance Ca2+ activated potassium channels (SK channels) are particular because they are affected by changes in intracellular calcium. The functional role of these channels in cardiac electrophysiology is still under intense debate. While they do not seem to play an important role in healthy hearts their associated current, IKCa, is smaller than other potassium currents -, there is increasing evidence that they may ...
