Figure 6

Effect of SSNX on mitochondrial permeability transition in cardiac tissue after MI/R injury. (a) Ca2+-induced mitochondrial swelling measured as decrease in the initial optical density (OD520) within 10 min. Note: cyclosporin A (CsA) is an mPTP inhibitor. (b) Mean changes in the initial optical density (OD520) at 10 min. Data are shown as mean ± SD, /group. versus sham group; and versus I/R group.
