Abstract:
During metabolic inhibition caused by myocardial ischemia, the extracellular pH reduces, while the concentrations of extracellular K+ and free polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) increase. Acidosis, raised extracellular K+ and PUFAs nodulate the rapidly inactivating K+ channel, Kv1.4, that contributes to the transient outward K+ current (1to) in the heart, including in the human.
