Noradrenaline elevates cardiomyocytes shortening
By Christopher Trummer on 10/22/2018
Species: Mouse

Primary mouse ventricular cardiomyocytes were treated with Noradrenaline bitartrate (NA, 5 µM) for 5 min and stimulated at 1 Hz frequency to follow cell shortening. NA increased cell shortening (shown in Image).
