The article reports about the vitamin D and calcium dyshomoeostasis-associated heart failure. This report focuses on a study about the direct interplay between calcium and contractile proteins, actin and myosin and the intracellular handling of calcium. Influence of cardiomyocyte contractility is examined particularly on its participation to the dyshomoeostasis and heart failure.

    The T-tubule system in ventricular cardiomyocytes is essential for synchronous Ca2+ handling, and, therefore, efficient contraction. T-tubular remodelling is a common feature of heart disease. In this review, we discuss whether t-tubular remodelling can be reversed and which factors may be...

    Action potential (AP), via the transverse axial tubular system (TATS), synchronously triggers uniform Ca2+-release throughout the cardiomyocyte. Cardiac diseases associated with TATS structural remodeling preclude a uniform Ca2+-release across the myocyte, contributing to contractile...

    Chronic heart failure (CHF), the new epidemic in cardiology, is characterized by energetic failure of both cardiac and skeletal muscles. The failing heart wastes energy due to anatomical changes that include cavity enlargement, altered geometry, tachycardia, mitral insufficiency and abnormal...
