Cardiac chloride channels, once largely ignored, are the subject of renewed exploration. Consequently, their molecular identities and electrophysiologic properties are being defined and have revealed a distinct family of ionic channels capable of uniquely influencing the cardiac action potential. Targeting these channel proteins may provide novel antiarrhythmic strategies.
