The present study aimed to investigate kinetic alterations of collagen and elastic fibres and their association with cardiac function in the acute myocardial infarction (AMI) heart. AMI was generated in Sprague-Dawley rats by ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery. Cardiac function was determined using B‑ultrasonography, AMI was verified using histopathology. The kinetics of collagen type I/III and elastic fibre were evaluated using immunohistochemistry and western blotting at… CONTINUE READING
