Accumulation of fetal fibronectin mRNAs during the development of rat cardiac hypertrophy induced by pressure overload.

Abstract

Cardiac pressure overload induces a shift towards the fetal form of major proteins expressed by the myocytes, and an accumulation of extracellular matrix proteins. One of them, fibronectin (FN), accumulates soon after the imposition of pressure overload. Because FN exists both as cellular FN (c-FN) locally synthesized by nonmuscle cells and as "plasma-FN… (More)
