Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this study, the morphology, biochemistry and function of chronically exercised versus pressure-overloaded rat hearts are examined to further delineate the role of the cardiac extracellular matrix (ECM) in cardiac function. The data gathered suggest an important role for ECM components in cardiac adaptation to exercise and pressure-overload.
