Latest Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase Stories
The stresses that come with aging, chemotherapy treatments, and environmental exposures all threaten fertility.
A new study has revealed a biochemical pathway that causes irregular heartbeats when blood sugar levels become abnormally high.
The over-activation of a vital heart enzyme leads to the death of pacemaker cells, abnormal heart rhythm, and an increased risk of sudden cardiovascular death in diabetic mice.
You may remember the color of your loved one's eyes for years. But how?
Current drugs used to treat heart failure and arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat) have limited effectiveness and have side effects.
Using a new mathematical model of heart cells, University of Iowa investigators have shown how activation of a critical enzyme, calmodulin kinase II (CaM kinase), disrupts the electrical activity of heart cells.
An overactive enzyme is behind a leaky calcium channel that plays a role in the development of atrial fibrillation, which is the most common cardiac arrhythmia that is responsible for a third of all strokes.
Scientists have discovered a way to erase specific memories in mice while leaving others intact and not damaging the brain.
