Activation of delayed rectifier K currents and inactivation of Ca currents serve to terminate the plateau phase and begin phase 3 or late repolarization. 135 Final repolarization is mediated by the outward component of IK1 even in atrial cells where the density of IK1 is small compared to that of ventricular myocytes. 20 Conceptual Basis for Cardiac Arrhythmology Cellular and Molecular Basis of Cardiac Electrophysiology EXCITABILITY AND PROPAGATION Many electrophysiological properties of the heart are direct consequences of ionic current activity during the AP.
