Significance of the adenine nucleotide translocator in the pathogenesis of viral heart disease

We found recently autoantibodies against the adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT), a carrier in the inner mitochondrial membrane, in sera of patients with myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy. To elucidate whether these antibodies are of pathophysiological importance, we investigated the function and expression of the adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT… CONTINUE READING
