An age-associated reduction in Nav1.5 protein expression correlates with an increase in Nav1.8 protein expression in the right atrial appendage of the human heart. (2020)
Journal Article
Isaac, E., Cooper, S., Lancaster, M., Loubani, M., & Jones, S. (2020). An age-associated reduction in Nav1.5 protein expression correlates with an increase in Nav1.8 protein expression in the right atrial appendage of the human heart. Circulation Research, 127(Suppl_1), A493

Background: Nav1.5 is the predominantly expressed voltage-gated sodium channel (VGSC) isoform in the heart, responsible for phase 0 of the action potential. Our rodent studies have shown expression of neuronal isoform Nav1.8 protein in the adult hear...
