Contribution of de novo protein synthesis to the hypertrophic effect of IGF-1 but not of thyroid hormones in adult ventricular cardiomyocytes


Background: Enhanced expression of IGF-1 occurs in left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) associated with systemic hypertension. Cardiac dysfunction accompanied by LVH is also observed in hyperthyroidism. Objective: to assess the relative contributions of de novo protein synthesis and attenuated protein degradation to increased protein mass associated with… (More)
