Use of nicorandil is associated with increased risk of incident atrial fibrillation


Figure 3. Basal expressions of KATP subunits in the human and rat atria. Total ribonucleic acid was isolated and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction products with specific primer pairs were visualized by electrophoresis. (A) The polymerase chain reaction results of human left atrial tissue. (B) The polymerase chain reaction results of 10 rat left atrial samples. Abbreviations: bp: base pair; GP: glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase; MW: molecular weight maker.
