Abstract

This is the first report of HF-related remodeling of outward K+ currents in murine LV. Similar to humans, disease-related remodeling occurs differentially across the murine ventricular wall, leading to loss of the native gradient of repolarization. Together with slowed recovery from inactivation, these alterations likely promote abnormal impulse conduction, a major proarrhythmic mechanism.
