Figure 2

Effect of EA pretreatment on [Ca2+] i concentration and [Ca2+] i oscillations in resting single ventricular myocyte. Panel A: Representative traces of Ca2+ transient in resting single ventricular myocyte of different groups. Panel B: Statistical results of resting [Ca2+]i concentration in single ventricular myocyte of different groups. Panel C: Statistical graph showing the oscillations in resting single ventricular myocyte of different groups. NC = normal control group; SGIR = simulative global ischemia & reperfusion group; EA = electro-acupuncture group; EAG = electro-acupuncture plus 18-beta-glycyrrhetinic acid group. **P < 0.01 vs. control group; ##P < 0.01 as compared with SGIR group; ++P < 0.01 in comparison with EA group. (n = 20).
