Synaptic neurotransmitter release is driven by Ca(2+) influx through active zone voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). Control of active zone VGCC abundance and function remains poorly understood. Here we show that a trafficking step probably sets synaptic VGCC levels in rats...

Short QT syndrome (SQTS) is a genetically determined ion-channel disorder, which may cause malignant tachyarrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Thus far, mutations in five different genes encoding potassium and calcium channel subunits have been reported. We present, for the first...

CACNA2 encodes the alpha(2)/delta subunit of the human voltage-gated calcium channels and is located in the candidate region of malignant hyperthermia susceptibility type 3 (MHS3). We determined the structural organization of CACNA2 by isolation of overlapping genomic DNA clones from...
