[Biochemical remodeling of myocardial collagen and its relation to cardiac renin-angiotensin system in rats after myocardial infarction].

OBJECTIVE This study aimed at the biochemical remodeling of myocardial collagen and its relation to cardiac renin-angiotensin system (RAS) after myocardial infarction(MI). METHODS The ventricular and plasma angiotensin II (Ang II) content, total collagen content, and collagen concentration in left ventricle(LV) and right ventricle(RV) of MI and sham… CONTINUE READING
