Left ventricular hypertrophy: pathogenesis, detection, and prognosis.
When the heart faces a hemodynamic burden, it can do the following to compensate: (1) use the Frank-Starling mechanism to increase crossbridge formation; (2) augment muscle mass to bear the extraExpand

Selective changes in cardiac gene expression during compensated hypertrophy and the transition to cardiac decompensation in rats with chronic aortic banding.
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is associated with reinduction of the fetal program of gene expression. It is unclear whether this pattern of cardiac gene expression changes with the developmentExpand

Increased rat cardiac angiotensin converting enzyme activity and mRNA expression in pressure overload left ventricular hypertrophy. Effects on coronary resistance, contractility, and relaxation.
We compared the activity and physiologic effects of cardiac angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) using isovolumic hearts from male Wistar rats with left ventricular hypertrophy due to chronicExpand

Association between a deletion polymorphism of the angiotensin-converting-enzyme gene and left ventricular hypertrophy.
BACKGROUND Epidemiologic studies have shown that left ventricular hypertrophy is often found in the absence of an elevated cardiac workload. To investigate whether such hypertrophy is determined inExpand
