The H2S Donor NaHS Changes the Expression Pattern of H2S-Producing Enzymes after Myocardial Infarction

Figure 1

The H2S donor NaHS protects ischaemic myocardium from myocardial infarction injury. (a) Representative echocardiogram from the sham, MI surgery control, and NaHS 50 μmol/kg/day treatment groups; (b) Echocardiographic parameter analysis. LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; LVFS, left ventricular fractional shortening; LVIDs, left ventricular internal dimension systole; LVIDd, left ventricular internal dimension diastole. (c) Statistics of Evans’ Blue-TTC staining to show the percentage of area at risk or infarct area. LV, left ventricle; AAR, area at risk; and INF, infarct area. Numbers inside bars denote the number of animals per group. Values are mean ± SE. and .
