An Electrostatic Mechanism for Ca2+-Mediated Regulation of Gap Junction Channels

  • When December 4 , 2015, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Who Mark J. Yeager, MD, PhD

    Andrew P. Somlyo Chair
    Department of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics
    University of Virginia School of Medicine Charlottesville, Virginia

  • Where Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, M106
    2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

Dr. Yeager will discuss the structure of macromolecular complexes in gap junctions in electrical coupling of myocardial cells and regulation of conduction coordinating contraction of the heart as well as the role in arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation; integrin receptors’ role in platelet adherence in normal blood coagulation, and in clots that obstruct blood flow during myocardial infarction.
