We aimed to study the impact of altered thyroid status on myocardial expression of electrical coupling protein connexin-43 (Cx43), the susceptibility of rats to ventricular fibrillation (VF) and the effects of antioxidant-rich red palm oil (RPO). Adult male and female euthyroid, hyperthyroid (treated with T3/T4), hypothyroid (treated with methimazole) Wistar rats supplemented or not with RPO for 6 weeks were used. Function of isolated perfused heart and VF threshold were determined. Left… CONTINUE READING
