From the authors: “Current methodologies for the measure of [neuropeptide Y] are not capable of providing rapid readouts on a single-sample basis. Here we provide the first in vivo methodology to report dynamic, localized [neuropeptide Y] levels within both myocardium and vascular compartments in a beating heart.”
This study is highlighted as one of December’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
