Cardiac functional and hypertrophic indices. (a) Cardiac ejection fraction (%) prior to, seven and 28 days following a MI. n = 8-13 mice per group. (b) Cardiac fractional shortening (%) prior to, seven and 28 days following a MI. n = 8-13 mice per group. (c) Heart weight 36 days post-MI surgery. n = 11-14 mice per group. (d) Heart weight-to-body weight ratio 36 days following a MI. n = 11-14 mice per group. (e) Time course of body weight from one week prior to chronic left anterior descending coronary artery ligation to five weeks post-ligation. n = 10-12 mice per group. (f) Tibial length 36 days following a MI. n = 11-14 mice per group. (g) Heart weight-to-tibial length 36 days post-MI. n = 11-14 mice per group. Data are mean ± S.E.M. *p < 0.05 vs. SHAM. †p < 0.05 vs. MI + PBS.
