The effects of high fat diet feeding on cardiac function in the C57BL6/J mouse strain

Abstract:

It has been established that placing the C57BL6/J mouse on a high fat diet induces obesity and impaired glucose homeostasis, and produces a model that is pathophysiologically relevant to the human condition of the metabolic syndrome. The cardiovascular changes in this model have been relatively poorly explored. I have focussed my work on understanding the effects of this diet on cardiac function using in vivo cardiac functional assessment in combination with in vitro analysis of intac...
