The creatine kinase energy transport system in the failing mouse heart.
Characteristic alterations of the creatine kinase (CK) system occur in heart failure and may contribute to contractile dysfunction. We examined two mouse models of chronic cardiac stress, transverse aortic constriction (TAC) and coronary artery ligation (CAL), and examined the relationship of CK system changes with hypertrophy and heart failure development. C57Bl/6 mice were subjected to TAC or sham surgery and sacrificed after 2-10 weeks according to echocardiographic criteria of myocardial ...Expand abstract
