Creatine kinase (CK) plays a crucial role in myocardial energy metabolism. Alterations in CK gene expression are found in hypertrophied and failing heart, but the mechanisms behind these changes are unclear. This study tests the hypothesis that increased adrenergic stimulation, which is observed in heart failure, induces changes of myocardial CK-activity, -isoenzyme distribution and -gene expression that are characteristic of the failing and hypertrophied heart. Isolated rat hearts were perfu...Expand abstract
