The authors exclude ,without experimental support, any possible participation of isoproterenol-induced RyR2 phosphorylation different from Ser2008/09 site in the positive inotropic effect of isoproterenol. We demonstrated in a previous work, that CaMKII-dependent phosphorylation of RyR2 at Ser2815 site was responsible for the beta-adrenergic-induced increase in the channel activity. 2. To indicate that we desagree wtih a concept that MacDonnell et al. put forward in their discussion, which suggests that the only mechanism by which isoproterenol may produce an increase in CaMKKII activation is by increasing heart rate. Evidence has grown supporting a critical role of CaMKII in the effects induced by both acute and chronic beta-adrenergic stimulation. These effects however occur without the requisite of a beta-adrenergic-induced increase in heart rate.
