B. Robinson so-called pacemaker current, I f , generated by the HCN gene family, best fits these criteria. The biophysical and molecular characteristics of this current are reviewed, and progress to date in developing selective pharmacologic agents targeting I f and in using gene and cell-based therapies to modulate the current are reviewed. Keywords Sino-atrial node · Automaticity · Pacemaker · HCN · Arrhythmia · Pharmacologic selectivity 1 Introduction The sino-atrial (SA) node is the specialized region of the cardiac right atrium where the heartbeat originates.

In 1799, Caleb Parry quoted a letter from a good friend, Edward Jenner, the discoverer of smallpox vaccination. Jenner described an autopsy he had done History of Arrhythmias 29 on a patient with angina pectoris who had died suddenly: “... I was making a transverse section of the heart pretty near its base when my knife struck something so hard and gritty as to notch it. I well remember looking up to the ceiling, which was old and gritty, conceiving that some plaster had fallen down. But upon further scrutiny, the real cause appeared: the coronaries were becoming bony canals” (Parry 1799; see also Friedman and Friedland 1998).
