Ca(2+) release events in cardiac myocytes up close: insights from fast confocal imaging.

The spatio-temporal properties of Ca(2+) transients during excitation-contraction coupling and elementary Ca(2+) release events (Ca(2+) sparks) were studied in atrial and ventricular myocytes with ultra-fast confocal microscopy using a Zeiss LSM 5 LIVE system that allows sampling rates of up to 60 k...
