Maintaining a low concentration of calcium within cells is vital to their survival and this is achieved by calcium pumps on the plasma membrane.
The researchers' starting point was the calcium pump located in the cell membrane of the model plant thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), but the regulatory mechanism also applies to the corresponding calcium pump in humans and animals.
Certain proteins, such as the calcium pump protein and the contractile protein myosin, appear to change with age which may account for some alterations in the function of the aging heart.
The key role played by calcium pumps in controlling of cytoplasmic calcium ions, regulation of calcium pump activity will have profound effects on calcium signaling (12).
Celladon is developing both biologics and small molecules targeting a key enzyme deficiency in advanced heart failure, the sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium pump (SERCA2a), which promote contractility but without the negative consequences of current inotropic therapies.
