OBJECTIVE We attempted to test the hypothesis that preinduction of heat shock protein (HSP) 72 in the heart would improve left ventricular performance in rat heatstroke. METHODS Cardiac expression of HSP 72 was quantitatively evaluated by western blot analysis in rats 0h, 12h, or 72h after mild heat preconditioning (MHP; 43°C for 30min). They were… CONTINUE READING
