J. Andrew Wasserstrom

Professor of Medicine (Cardiology)

We are using single photon confocal microscopy to measure intracellular Ca cycling in individual myocytes of intact rat and mouse hearts. Hearts are loaded with the Ca indicator fluo-4AM, allowing us to measure intracellular Ca at the submicron level. Ongoing projects include study of changes in Ca cycling in animal models of heart failure, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, spontaneous Ca release and cardiac arrhythmias.
