Figure 5

Cardiomyocyte intracellular Ca 2+ handling properties in FVB and ALDH2 transgenic mice treated with or without streptozotocin. (A) Resting fura-2 fluorescence intensity (FFI); (B) electrically-stimulated rise in FFI (ΔFFI); (C) intracellular Ca2+ decay rate (single exponential); (D) intracellular Ca2+ decay rate (bi-exponential). Mean ± SEM, n = 76 to 77 cells from four mice per group. *P <0.05 versus FVB group; # P <0.05 versus FVB-STZ group.
