Implantation of SIS-ECM-CPC reduced myocardial BNP, ANP, Collagen I, Collagen III, and TGF-β mRNA expression in mice with MI. a BNP, b ANP, c Collagen I, d Collagen III, and e TGF-β mRNAs were detected by real-time PCR using cDNAs obtained from the whole LV myocardium of sham mice, MI mice, MI + Patch mice, and MI + Patch + Cell mice, and expression was normalized for that of GAPDH. Data expressed as mean ± SD. n = 6. *p < 0.05 vs sham mice, #p < 0.05 vs MI mice. MI myocardial infarction
