In vivo fluorometric assessment of cyclosporine on mitochondrial function during myocardial ischemia and reperfusion.


BACKGROUND Cyclosporine A (CsA) limits myocardial reperfusion injury and preserves mitochondrial integrity, but its influence on mitochondrial function has not been described in vivo. Auto-fluorescence of mitochondrial nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and flavin adenine dinucleotide correlate with mitochondrial dysfunction. We hypothesized that CsA limits… (More)
