Oxidant stress mechanisms in heart failure.

Abstract

Evidences clearly indicate that HF is accompanied by excessive generation of OFRs and depletion of endogenous antioxidant system. The resultant oxidant stress depresses myocardial contractility and function by decreasing Ca++ uptake in sarcoplasmic reticulum and by impaired Ca(++)-ATPase in cardiac tissue. The various sources of OFRs production in HF… (More)
