The cellular mechanisms of cardiac hypertrophy remain unclear despite tantalizing clues gleaned from a variety of experimental approaches. Here we examine the hypothesis that an increase in cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) triggers the expression of proto-oncogenes, which in turn direct the characteristic increase in protein synthesis. New results from perfused ferret hearts are presented demonstrating that [Ca2+]i increases as a direct consequence of an elevation in perfusion… CONTINUE READING
