OBJECTIVE: To determine the mechanisms underlying the obesity-induced increase in myocardial lipid peroxidation in the fa/fa rat. We hypothesized that elevated heart work (ie rate-pressure product), an increased rate of superoxide (O2 .−) production, total myocardial lipid content, and/or insufficient antioxidant defenses are potential contributors to… CONTINUE READING
