- Cardiac and skeletal muscle disorders caused by mutations in the intracellular Ca2+ release channels. Priori, Silvia G.; Napolitano, Carlo // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Aug2005, Vol. 115 Issue 8, p2033
Here we review the current knowledge about the mutations of the gene encoding the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) that cause cardiac arrhythmias. Similarities between the mutations identified in the RyR2 gene and those found in the gene RyR1 that cause malignant hyperthermia and central core...

- Antiarrhythmic and Proarrhythmic Properties of QT-Prolonging Antianginal Drugs. Singh, Bramah N.; Wadhani, Nitin // Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology & Therapeutics;Sep2004 Supplement, Vol. 9 Issue 1S, pS85
The article presents research which dealt with the antiarrhythmic and proarrhythmic properties of QT-Prolonging Antianginal Drugs. The author argues that prolonging repolarization is capable of controlling cardiac arrhythmias. Hence, antianginal agents such as amiodarone and ranolazine are safe...
