    ..These findings indicate that Pak1 is required to maintain ventricular Ca(2+) homeostasis and electrophysiological stability and implicate Pak1 as a novel regulator of cardiac SERCA2a through a transcriptional mechanism. ..

    ..Thus the results indicate that S1P attenuates ?-adrenergic stress-induced alteration of intracellular Ca(2+) release and L-type Ca(2+) channel current at least in part via Pak1-PP2A-mediated signalling. ..
