Research Interests
  • The integrity of Na+,K+-ATPase protein complexes at the cell surface of the cardiac myocyte is not only critical for the maintenance of ion homeostasis, it is also key to adequate initiation and transduction of digitalis signalling and subsequent pharmacological effects. We focus on the mechanism of ischemia/reperfusion-induced Na+,K+-ATPase alteration and preconditioning by digitalis as tools to develop novel approaches for therapeutic intervention in myocardial infarction.
