By Joanne S. Ingwall

ATP performs a relevant position within the prime reasons of cardiac morbidity and mortality within the western global: ischemia and middle failure. we're in our infancy making use of what's identified approximately biology and chemistry of ATP towards constructing potent treatments for those illnesses. during this quantity, the present figuring out of the chemistry and biology of ATP in particular within the cardiomyocyte is gifted. New insights into ATP were gleaned utilizing biophysical suggestions permitting dynamic size of chemical occasions within the intact beating center and utilizing new animal types within which cardiac proteins are both over expressed, deleted or harbor particular mutations.


This ebook offers a precis of the fundamental realizing and contains illustrations of why ATP and the Heart is critical to either the clinician and scientist.
