      Excitation-Contraction Coupling Contraction of the heart is initiated by electrical activation. It involves the interaction of active tension generation at the cell level with the passive elastic properties of the : Richard H. Clayton, D. Rodney Hose.   Of the ions involved in the intricate workings of the heart, calcium is considered perhaps the most important. It is crucial to the very process that enables the chambers of the heart to contract Cited by:

    The consequences of cardiac excitation-contraction coupling by calcium-induced calcium release were studied theoretically, using a series of idealized models solved by analytic and numerical methods. "Common-pool" models, those in which the trigger calcium. Excitation-Contraction Coupling and Cardiac Contractile Force&endash; Second Edition is an invaluable source of information for anyone who is interested in how the heart beat is controlled and especially suited for students of the cardiovascular system at all levels from medical/graduate students through senior investigators in related fields.

    Excitation-contraction (E-C) coupling refers to the series of events that link the action potential (excitation) of the muscle cell membrane (the sarcolemma) to muscular contraction. Although E-C coupling in myocardium is similar in many ways to skeletal muscle and .   Excitation-Contraction Coupling and Cardiac Contractile Force Second Edition is an invaluable source of information for anyone who is interested in how the heart beat is controlled and especially suited for students of the cardiovascular system at all levels from medical/graduate students through senior investigators in related fields.4/5(5).

Excitation-contraction coupling (ECC) is the process whereby an action potential triggers a myocyte to contract, followed by subsequent relaxation. The following figure and text summarizes some of the key events that occur during cardiac muscle excitation-contraction coupling: Key steps in cardiac excitation-contraction coupling.

Donald M. Bers, in Cardiac Electrophysiology: From Cell to Bedside (Seventh Edition), Excitation–Contraction Coupling and Relationship to Action Potentials.

Cardiac excitation–contraction coupling (ECC) is the process by which the electrical activation of cardiac myocytes leads to the activation of contraction. 1–3 In its broadest use, ECC refers to everything from the initial.

Judith A. Heiny, Gerhard Meissner, in Cell Physiology Source Book (Fourth Edition), Excitation–contraction coupling in skeletal muscle is a fast signal transduction process by which depolarization of the sarcolemmal membranes is coupled to the opening of Ca 2+ release channels on the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR).

This transduction occurs at specialized triad junctions and is. In contrast, contractile muscle cells (cardiomyocytes) constitute the majority of the heart muscle and are able to contract.

Excitation-contraction coupling. Unlike skeletal muscle, excitation–contraction coupling in cardiac muscle is thought to depend primarily on a mechanism called calcium-induced calcium release.

Cardiac Excitation-Contraction Coupling describes the molecular mechanisms by which the cardiac action potential initiates physical contraction of the cardiomyocyte.

Excitation-Contraction Coupling within Cardiomyocytes is largely similar to that observed in Skeletal Muscle with some important differences as described below.

There is also evidence that the Ca2+ flow through the channels in the transverse tubules may stimulate the opening of other calcium channels in the sarcoplasmic reticulum.

This is termed a Ca2+-induced Ca2+ release mechanism, and has been shown to be the major mechanism for excitation-contraction coupling in heart muscle.Alteration of excitation-contraction coupling in the failing human heart was deemed an interesting subject for a dialogue between basic scientists and clinical researchers in continuation of previous Gargellen Conferences concerned with the function of the normal and failing human myocardium.

In. Excitation–Contraction Coupling. Excitation–contraction coupling is the physiological process of converting an electrical stimulus to a mechanical response. It is the link (transduction) between the action potential generated in the sarcolemma and the start of a muscle contraction.
