The cardiomyopathic Syrian hamster develops a progressive cardiomyopathy characterized by cellular necrosis, hypertrophy, cardiac dilatation, and congestive heart failure. This study aimed to identify alterations in cardiac mechanical function and in the cellular content of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+-release channels (ryanodine receptors, RyR) in the heart of the UM-X7.1 cardiomyopathic hamster during the development of heart failure. Experimental and healthy control hamsters were… CONTINUE READING
