Application of magnetic resonance for non-invasive phenotyping of mice with altered metabolism

Abstract:

Changes in myocardial energetics have been implicated in the pathophysiology of heart failure (HF). However, the precise contribution of creatine (Cr) / phosphocreatine (PCr) / creatine kinase (CK) energy buffer and transfer remains unclear. The aim of this thesis was to study the effects on murine cardiac function of both impairment and enhancement of creatine metabolism.

In order to longitudinally follow the cause and effect relationship of myocardial creatine concentration, a non...
