ATP and the Heart (Basic Science for the Cardiologist) by Joanne S. Ingwall

By Joanne S. Ingwall

ATP performs a relevant position within the major motives of cardiac morbidity and mortality within the western global: ischemia and center failure. we're in our infancy employing what's recognized approximately biology and chemistry of ATP towards constructing potent treatments for those illnesses. during this quantity, the present figuring out of the chemistry and biology of ATP in particular within the cardiomyocyte is gifted. New insights into ATP were gleaned utilizing biophysical options permitting dynamic size of chemical occasions within the intact beating center and utilizing new animal types during which cardiac proteins are both over expressed, deleted or harbor particular mutations.


This booklet presents a precis of the fundamental figuring out and contains illustrations of why ATP and the Heart is critical to either the clinician and scientist.
