In cardiac myocytes, the contractile cycle of myofilaments is initiated in the systolic stage by Ca [sup]2+ entering the cytosol via voltage-activated L-type Ca [sup]2+ channels, such as dihydropyridine receptor, such Ca [sup]2+ ions will then bind the RyRs in the SR, and trigger the release of Ca [sup]2+ into cytosol from the SR, allowing binding to calmodulin (CAM) and activating the contractions of cardiac myocytes.
