The Na+-K+ ATPase hydrolyzes a molecule of ATP to transport two K+s into the cell and three Na+s out and is thereby electrogenic, generating a time-independent outward current. The Na+-K+ ATPase is oligomeric, consisting of α, β, and possibly γ subunits. There are four different α and three distinct β isoforms (for review see Blanco164). 166 The γ subunit belongs to a family of small membrane-spanning proteins including phospholemman167 that support ionic fluxes. Na+-K+ ATPase isoforms exhibit tissue-specific distributions.

226 EAD-mediated triggered activity likely underlies initiation of the characteristic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, Torsades de Pointes, seen in patients with congenital and acquired forms of LQTS (see Chapter 27). Acquired prolongation of the Q–T interval most often is the result of drug therapy or electrolyte disturbances as noted previously. 227 The abnormalities of repolarization in hypertrophy and failure are often magnified by concomitant drug therapy or electrolyte disturbances. ABNORMAL IMPULSE CONDUCTION: REENTRY The most common arrhythmia mechanism is reentry.
