Atrial and ventricular myocardium perform different tasks in the pumping work of the vertebrate heart, which are reflected in their contractile properties. Although atrial contraction is assumed to have an important role in the function of fish heart, the contractile properties of atrial and ventricular myocardium have not been directly compared in any fish species. The objective of this study was to clarify any contractile differences in the heart of teleost fish and, in particular, to… CONTINUE READING
