From: Adverse transverse-tubule remodeling in a rat model of heart failure is attenuated with low-dose triiodothyronine treatment

  Sham MI + Veh MI + T3
Ca2+ Rise (Max Rate/Peak Ca2+ Height) 67.1 ± 4.1 72.2 ± 7.3 67.0 ± 9.8
Time at max rate of Ca2+ Rise (s) 0.016 ± 0.002 0.017 ± 0.003 0.015 ± 0.002
Ca2+ Fall (Max Rate/Peak Ca2+ Height) 4.84 ± 0.25 4.83 ± 0.24 5.38 ± 0.61
Time at max rate of Ca2+ Fall (s) 0.175 ± 0.001 0.183 ± 0.008 0.171 ± 0.016
Area Under Curve of Ca2+ Fall Phase 0.068 ± 0.013 0.072 ± 0.019 0.050 ± 0.014
  1. Values are mean ± SD. MI, myocardial infarction; Veh, vehicle; T3, triiodothyronine. Sham, n = 5; MI + Veh, n = 7, MI + T3, n = 5; Max Rate is max velocity of Ca2+ rise (release) or Ca2+ fall (re-uptake) phase of the transient
