Contractile and morphological impairment of cultured fetal mouse myocytes induced by oxygen radicals and oxidants. Correlation with intracellular Ca2+ concentration.


There is evidence that reperfusion injury of cardiac tissue may be caused by the generation of oxygen-derived free radicals and oxidants and by the induction of intracellular calcium overload, although the relation between these two mechanisms of injury is uncertain. In addition, the relation between the types of cellular injury and specific active species… (More)
