Energy transduction in purified myocardial myofibrils from normal rabbits and those having toxi-allergic myocarditis (TAM) was compared. In TAM a sharp decrease in the rate and value of ATP hydrolysis enthalpy released during free contraction of myofibrils takes place, and is accompanied by a rise in the amount of energy dissipated as heat. It is concluded… CONTINUE READING
