Cardiac function and remodeling is attenuated in transgenic rats expressing the human kallikrein-1 gene after myocardial infarction.


Bradykinin coronary outflow, left ventricular performance and left ventricular dimensions of transgenic rats harboring the human tissue kallikrein-1 gene TGR(hKLK1) were investigated under basal and ischemic conditions. Bradykinin content in the coronary outflow of buffer-perfused, isolated hearts of controls and TGR(hKLK1) was measured by specific… (More)
