BE230C Assignment 2

Due: Thursday April 16th

Find an article in which myocardial energetics is studied by measuring work and heat production in cardiac muscle or isolated heart preparations. As a starting point you might look at work by Gibbs, Loiselle, or Suga. Briefly summarize the major findings and discuss them in the context of a specific model analysis of cardiac energetics. For this you may refer to another paper or both the experimental and model studies may be part of the same paper. For model analyses, you might start by looking at papers by Suga or Landesberg. Submit a one page report by April 16th.
