Buttrick & Walkers Lab


Buttrick & Walkers lab group is on the cell biology and physiology of acquired cardiac hypertrophy and failure. To approach this broad area, we have analyzed molecular adaptations that lead to biochemical alterations in the sarcomere, with a particular focus on kinase dependent signaling. We have also developed functional assays (isolated sarcomere and myofilament preparations) to evaluate the functional significance of these alterations. Historically, we have relied heavily on transgenic mouse models of disease but more recently we have employed human tissue specimens to confirm findings generated using murine models.
