Calcium-induced swelling of SSM. Ca2+-induced swelling of SSM without (a) and with (b) pyruvate-dependent blocking of mPTP. Arrows indicate the earliest pair (IR/30 vs. IR15/30, IR 30/30, IR 40/30) of significantly different observations during reperfusion. Values are presented as means ± standard error of the mean; *p ≤ 0.05. SSM: subsarcolemmal mitochondria; mPTP: mitochondrial permeability transition pore
