Abstract:
Fundamental differences in Ca²+ homeostasis between mice and larger mammals require the validation of the mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis before translation into human pathophysiology. The purpose of this study was to create transgenic rabbits that express defective human cardiac ryanodine receptor (hRyR2) with a mutation (R4497C) causing a clinically relevant arrhythmogenic syndrome.
