We thus conclude that Tg mice overexpressing myotrophin show no visible changes in the initiation phase (4 weeks); however, as the disease progresses, alterations in the cytoskeleton are found during the transition phase from hypertrophy to HF (36 weeks onward).
Studies at the morphological and molecular level have found that transgenic (Tg) mice that overexpress myotrophin in the heart develop hypertrophy at the early age of 4 weeks; this condition worsens to heart failure (HF) at approximately 36 weeks.
It appears to play an important role in mature islet cell function, in part by inhibiting expression of myotrophin, a protein implicated in exocytosis
