Differential influences of carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 inhibition and hyperthyroidism on cardiac growth and sarcoplasmic reticulum phosphorylation.

Abstract

To characterize interventions resulting in 'physiological' growth of the heart, Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) had hyperthyroidism induced (0.05 mg.kg-1.day-1 triiodothyronine for 6 days) or were treated with a high dose of the carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 inhibitor, etomoxir (15 mg.kg-1.day-1 for 5 weeks). Etomoxir… (More)
