Myocardial infarction in mice alters sarcomeric function via post-translational protein modification

Abstract

Myocardial physiology in the aftermath of myocardial infarction (MI) before remodeling is an under-explored area of investigation. Here, we describe the effects of MI on the cardiac sarcomere with focus on the possible contributions of reactive oxygen species. We surgically induced MI in 6–7-month-old female CD1 mice by ligation of the left anterior… (More)
