My studys objective was to assess cardiac function during the development of diastolic dysfunction and to gain insight into the pathophysiological impact of the RCM cTnI mutation. Cardiac function was monitored in cTnI193His mice and wild-type littermates for a period of 12 months. It progressed gradually from ab normal relaxation to diastolic dysfunction characterized with micro-echocardiography by a reversed E/A ratio, increased deceleration time, and prolonged isovolumetric relaxation time.

The negative impact of cTnI193His on cardiac function was further demonstrated in isolated mouse working heart preparations. Dobutamine stimulation increased heart rate in cTnI193His mice but did not improve CO. The cTnI193His mice had a phenotype similar to that in human RCM patients carrying the cTnI mutation characterized morphologically by enlarged atria and restricted ventricle and functionally by diastolic dysfunction.
