Although sarcomere protein gene mutations cause familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC), individuals bearing a mutant cardiac myosin binding protein C (MyBP-C) gene usually have a better prognosis than individuals bearing beta-cardiac myosin heavy chain (MHC) gene mutations. Heterozygous mice bearing a cardiac MHC missense mutation (alphaMHC(403/+) or a(More)
The zeta potential of the protein corona around carboxyl particles has been measured using tunable resistive pulse sensing (TRPS). A simple and rapid assay for characterising zeta potentials within buffer, serum and plasma is presented monitoring the change, magnitude and distribution of proteins on the particle surface. First, we measure the change in zeta(More)
Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC), an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutationally altered dominant-acting sarcomere proteins, exhibits significant clinical heterogeneity. To determine whether genetic background could influence the expression of this disease, we studied a murine model for this human condition. Hypertrophic responses to the(More)
