Overview

Written with contributions from experts who have critically evaluated the state of the art and the prospects of isolated adults cardiac myocytes in cardiological research, this two-volume publication summarizes the current knowledge of this technology. The methodology, structure, and metabolism of cardiomyocytes are presented, along with metabolism and cation homeostasis and energy metabolism and hypoxic injury. Additionally, cell isolation and culture and the structure and biochemistry of the sarcolemma is explained. Electrophysiology and contractile function with ionic currents and membrane channels is discussed. Also, the electro-physiological effects of transmitters and hormones are presented, with excitation-contraction coupling and the use of cardiomyocytes in drug design and research explained.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The articles collected in these two volumes reflect the current state of research using cardiomyocytes and present understanding of myocardial metabolism and physiology on the cellular level. Volume I, subtitled Structure and metabolism contains papers on the cardiomyocyte in tissue and in the isolated state, structure and biochemistry of the sarcolemma, and energy metabolism. Volume II, subtitled Electrophysiology and contractite function, covers ionic currents through membrane channels of the sarcolemma, transmitters and hormones, and excitation-contraction coupling. An index in each volume for that volume only. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
