Northwestern Medicine scientists have revealed the role of a protein, SNRK, in cardiac tissue metabolism, which may lead to new insights in treating heart failure. In a Nature Communications paper, the authors show that overexpression of SNRK alters heart tissue by reducing its metabolism of fatty acids and glucose, while retaining normal function.
