Cardiac fibroblasts inhibit β-adrenoceptor-dependent connexin43 expression in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes


Cardiac fibroblasts play an important role in adverse cardiac remodelling. As in many cardiac diseases connexin43 (Cx43) is altered, we wanted to elucidate whether fibroblasts may influence cardiac Cx43 expression. We used four different cell culture systems of neonatal rat cardiomyocytes (CM) and fibroblasts (FB): type 1, pure CM culture; type 2, co… (More)
