  • In previous studies, Knollmann's team demonstrated that troponin mutations associated with HCM increase the sensitivity of the troponins to calcium - they bind calcium more readily, which activates the myofilaments more easily and results in stronger contractions.

  • Knollmann and colleagues showed that an agent that desensitizes the myofilaments - makes them less "willing" to bind calcium - prevented arrhythmias.

  • "We could make a normal heart prone to arrhythmias simply by changing the sensitivity of the myofilaments to calcium," Knollmann said.
