Mechanisms of Action Potential Duration Alternans and Arrhythmogenesis
Utility of the distal compound muscle action potential duration for diagnosis of demyelinating neuropathies.
In the streptozotocin- (STZ-) induced diabetic rat, SAN conduction, pacemaker cycle length, and action potential duration were prolonged [27, 28].
It may prolong the action potential duration (APD) of antiarrhythmic activity through the dose-dependent inhibition of [I.sub.t0].
Additionally, we will develop an algorithm for the detection of pulse wave alternans in the photoplethysmogram recorded from the finger, and develop a mobile application to detect repolarization alternans from a fingertip pulse wave using the built-in camera lens.We hypothesize that:1) Alterations in the strain of the myocardium have a direct, predictable effect on electrophysiology: changing action potential duration.2) In patients with coronary artery diseases, mechanical heterogeneity contributes to electrical heterogeneity, creating a pro-arrhythmic substrate.3) Changes in cardiac load alter the magnitude and the spatial distribution of beat-to-beat repolarization alternans.
Action potential duration determines sarcoplasmic reticulum [Ca.sup.2+] reloading in mammalian ventricular myocytes.
In LQTS, it is hypothesized that derangements in cardiac ion flow lead to an increase in action potential duration. Specifically, prolongation of repolarization occurs as a result of a net reduction in the outward current mediated chiefly by decreased potassium efflux from the cardiac myocyte.
Severi, "Theoretical investigation of action potential duration dependence on extracellular [Ca.sup.2+] in human cardiomyocytes," Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, vol.
Recent animal studies have indicated that rapid electrical stimulation causes electrical remodeling in the intact atrium through the shortening of action potential duration, downregulation of L-type [Ca.sup.2+] currents, and promoting the maintenance of AF [9-13].
Electrophysiological properties of neurons in intact rat dorsal root ganglia classified by conduction velocity and action potential duration. J Neurophysiol 1996; 76: 1924-1941.
Nearly all drugs that prolong QT interval do so by blocking rapid outward potassium ([I.sub.kr]), currently resulting in delayed phase 3 repolarization and prolongation of action potential duration.
