T-wave alternans, an important arrhythmogenic factor, has recently been described in human fetuses. Here we sought to determine whether alternans can be induced in the embryonic mouse hearts, despite its underdeveloped sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) and, if so, to analyze the response to pharmacological and autonomic interventions. Immunohistochemistry confirmed minimal sarcoplasmic-endoplasmic reticulum Ca-ATPase 2a expression in embryonic mouse hearts at embryonic day (E) 10.5 to E12.5, compared… CONTINUE READING
