Exercise training in Tgαq*44 mice during the progression of chronic heart failure: cardiac vs. peripheral (soleus muscle) impairments to oxidative metabolism.
TLDR
Functional impairments in exercise performance, cardiac function, and soleus muscle mitochondrial respiration were observed in transgenic chronic heart failure mice, evaluated in the critical period between the occurrence of an impairment of cardiac function and the terminal stage of the disease.

Does hydrogen bonding contribute to lipoperoxidation-dependent membrane fluidity variation? An EPR-spin labeling study.
TLDR
The observed ability of pure diHpLPC to form rigid and disordered SPB and MLV bilayers is proposed to be dependent on the cross bridging of oxidized linoleoyl chains by mutual hydrogen bonding of hydroperoxyl groups. Expand
Voluntary physical activity counteracts Chronic Heart Failure progression affecting both cardiac function and skeletal muscle in the transgenic Tgαq*44 mouse model
TLDR
Prolonged voluntary physical activity performed before the onset of CHF end‐stage, appears to be a useful tool to increase cardiac function and to reduce skeletal muscle oxidative damage counteracting physical activity decline. Expand
