The Spatial Distribution of Actin and Mechanical Cycle of Myosin Are Different in Right and Left Ventricles of Healthy Mouse Hearts

Abstract

The contraction of the right ventricle (RV) expels blood into the pulmonary circulation, and the contraction of the left ventricle (LV) pumps blood into the systemic circulation through the aorta. The respective afterloads imposed on the LV and RV by aortic and pulmonary artery pressures create very different mechanical requirements for the two ventricles… (More)
