Junctophilin-2 is a target of matrix metalloproteinase-2 in myocardial ischemia–reperfusion injuryAbstractJunctophilin-2 is a structural membrane protein that tethers T-tubules to the sarcoplasmic reticulum to allow for coordinated calcium-induced calcium release in cardiomyocytes. Defective excitation–contraction coupling in myocardial ischemia–reperfusion (IR) injury is associated with junctophilin-2 proteolysis. However, it remains unclear whether preventing junctophilin-2 proteolysis improves...
