The expression of mRNA of cytokines and of extracellular matrix proteins in triiodothyronine-treated rat hearts


In various models of cardiac hypertrophy, e.g. treatment of rats with norepinephrine infusion or pressure overload, increased expression of cytokines together with increase in extracellular matrix proteins (ECMP) was reported. In this study the effect of triiodothyronine (T3) on the expression of mRNA for cytokines and ECMP was investigated. Female Sprague… (More)
