An et. al. (2023) showed STIP1 promoted Cx43 expression to improve intercellular communication and reduce oxidative stress in H/R‐stimulated H9C2 cells.  The electrical mapping system with a multi-electrode array (64-channel) was used to acquire and plot epicardial isochronal activation maps. The data were then effortlessly computed into conduction velocity by EMapScope software.

Cheng et. al. (2023) found that Sacubitril/Valsartan ameliorates Crizotinib-induced cardiotoxicity in mice, a first-line drug commonly used for non-small-cell lung cancer. The electrical mapping system with multi-electrode arrays (MEAs) was used to acquire and plot epicardial isochronal activation maps. The data were then effortlessly computed into conduction velocity, the inhomogeneity index, and absolute inhomogeneity by EMapScope software.
