    Heart failure is a major cause of death and disability. Impairments in blood circulation that accompany heart failure can be traced, in part, to alterations in the activity of the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ pump that are induced by its interactions with phospholamban, a reversible inhibitor. If...

  • Fluid Dynamics of Ventricular Filling in the Embryonic Heart. Miller, Laura // Cell Biochemistry & Biophysics;Sep2011, Vol. 61 Issue 1, p33 

    The vertebrate embryonic heart first forms as a valveless tube that pumps blood using waves of contraction. As the heart develops, the atrium and ventricle bulge out from the heart tube, and valves begin to form through the expansion of the endocardial cushions. As a result of changes in...

  • heart rate. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p370 

    An encyclopedia entry for "heart rate" is presented. It refers to the rate at which the heart contracts to pump blood around the body. This entry explains the varied rate at which the heart beats and the amount of blood pumped out with each contraction. It notes the use of a stethoscope to...
