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

By Joanne S. Ingwall

ATP performs a imperative function within the major factors of cardiac morbidity and mortality within the western global: ischemia and center failure. we're in our infancy using what's identified approximately biology and chemistry of ATP towards constructing powerful cures for those illnesses. during this quantity, the present realizing of the chemistry and biology of ATP particularly within the cardiomyocyte is gifted. New insights into ATP were gleaned utilizing biophysical concepts permitting dynamic dimension of chemical occasions within the intact beating middle and utilizing new animal versions within which cardiac proteins are both over expressed, deleted or harbor particular mutations.


This publication offers a precis of the elemental figuring out and comprises illustrations of why ATP and the Heart is necessary to either the clinician and scientist.
