Abstract

The release of cardiac fatty acid-binding protein (cFABP) and of fatty acids from isolated rat hearts was measured during both reperfusion following 60 min of ischemia and the calcium paradox (readmission of Ca2+ after a period of Ca2+-free perfusion). Total cFABP release was much more pronounced after Ca2+ readmission (over 50% of tissue content) than during post-ischemic reperfusion (on average, 3% of tissue content), but in both cases, it closely paralleled the release of lactate dehydrogenase. Only minor amounts of long-chain fatty acids, if any, were released from the heart. These observations are challenging the idea that cFABP plays a fatty acid-buffering role under the pathophysiological conditions studied.
