[Association between myocardial ADAMTS-1 expression and myocardial fibrosis in a murine model of viral myocarditis].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between myocardial ADAMTS-1 expression and myocardial fibrosis in coxsackievirus B(3) (CVB(3))-induced acute and chronic murine myocarditis model. METHODS Balb/c mice were infected with CVB(3) (single injection or monthly injection for 3 months) to establish acute or chronic myocarditis model. Normal controls… (More)
