Myocardial infarction was produced in dogs by ligation of branches of the coronary arteries. The rate of incorporation of a radioactive amino acid, glycine-2-C14, into heart muscle protein was studied over a period of six weeks. Three samples were analyzed from each left ventricle close to the infarcted area: normal tissue, the infarcted area, and borderline tissue.
The infarcted tissue showed a rapid diminution in protein synthesis after infarction, but already on the third day, the incorporation into the infarcted tissue rose above the normal and reached a maximum after 4 days. This reflects the early destruction and the following
