We tested the hypothesis that bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) must be internalized to facilitate endotoxin-dependent signal activation in cardiac myocytes. Fluorescently labeled LPS was used to treat primary cardiomyocyte cultures, perfused heart preparations, and the RAW264.7 macrophage cell line. Using confocal microscopy and spectrofluorometry, we(More)
