Activin receptor-like kinase 4 haplodeficiency alleviates the cardiac inflammation and pacing-induced ventricular arrhythmias after myocardial infarction

ALK4 haplodeficency reduces cardiac inflammation after myocardial injury. (A) ALK4 protein expression in WT and ALK4+/- mice in 4 groups (n=4 for each). (B) ALK4 protein expression in macrophages in WT and ALK4+/- mice on the 3rd day post-MI (n=5). (C) The mRNA expression of iNOS, Fizz-1, ICAM1, VCAM1 and PECAM1 were showed. (D) INOS expression in WT and ALK4+/- mice on the 3rd day post-MI (n=5). *P
