Remodeling of gap junctions in mouse hearts hypertrophied by forced retinoic acid signaling

Published inJournal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, vol. 34, no. 10, p. 1411-1423
Publication date2002

Beta-MHC-hRARalpha transgenic mice express a constitutively active (truncated) form of the human retinoic acid receptor which triggers development of dilated cardiomyopathy. In those hearts, we studied expression of gap junction proteins in relation to electrical impulse propagation.
