LV Shortening Fraction as a Function of Time after AMI in WT and MPO−/− Mice

Days after AMIWTMPO−/−
058.9 ± 2.059.6 ± 3.1
325.4 ± 4.821.5 ± 2.9
2112.9 ± 3.123.9 ± 4.8a
  • a P < 0.005, MPO versus WT at specified time.

  • WT, n = 8 at each time point.

  • MPO−/−, n = 8 at 0 and 3 d and n = 7 at 21 d.
