Introduction: Neonatal Rat Cardiomyocyte Model
The neonatal rat cardiomyocyte model has been used for many years by researchers studying the heart. In addition to increasing understanding of the morphological, biochemical, and electrophysiological characteristics of the normal heart, neonatal cardiomyocytes have been used to study contraction, ischemia, hypoxia, and the toxicity of different compounds.
