G. 2 Regulation of the Contractile Force 100 200 [beats/min] 530 Fig. 13. Original woodcut from the work of Bowditch (1871), which shows the generated force (Zeft 1, 2, 3) at different stimulation frequencies (100, 200, 530 contractions/min, lower edge of figure). The heart muscle preparations stimulated with high er frequencies developed a high er contractile force, and the decrease in force over time was less pronounced in these preparations (after Bowditch 1871) calcium sequestration, can lead to a rise in the diastolic tension development at high frequencies and to areduction of the developed force (see below).

During binding of a hormone H to its specific receptor, the hormonereceptor complex interacts with the a subunit of the respective G protein. The GDP bound to a in the former's inactive state is replaced by GTP. This nudeotide exchange induces a dissociation of a-GTP from the ßy complex. a-GTP finally activates the effector (E) of the cell. The activation cyde of a G protein is terminated by the intrinsic GTPase activity of the a subunit. After hydrolysis of GTP to GDP, the now exisitng a-GDP re-associates with the ßy complex to the originally inactive aß!

1993; NÄBAUER et al. 1993). Thus, obviously due to a change in repolarizing calcium flows, a prolongation of the action potential occurs, which might be of considerable importance for the relaxation dis order in severe heart failure. • Functional Importance. Both the delayed calcium sequestration from the cytosol to the sarcoplasmic reticulum and the prolongation of the action potential can bring about considerable changes in the contractility and relaxation of the heart in heart failure. g. cardiac glycosides), a progressive prolongation of the contraction occurs and thus diastolic dysfunction (SCHWINGER et al.
