Changes in T-Tubules and Sarcoplasmic Reticulum in Ventricular Myocytes in Early Cardiac Hypertrophy in a Pressure Overload Rat Model

Background/Aims: Pressure-overload (PO) causes cardiac hypertrophy (CH), and eventually leads to heart failure (HF). HF ventricular myocytes present transverse-tubules (TT) loss or disarrangement and decreased sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) density, and both contribute to altered Ca2+ signaling and hea...
