N normal phenotype
• high incidence of sudden death in mice particularly between 1 and 3 months of age
• mice die after developing repetitive Torsade des Pointes which degenerates into ventricular defibrillation
• treatment with pimobendan, a Ca2+ sensitizer increases life span

cardiovascular system
• increase in size is greater in homozygotes compared to heterozygotes
• treatment with pimobendan, a Ca2+ sensitizer decreases heart size
• increase in left ventricular end-diastolic dimension
• however, no significant differences in wall thickness are detected
• markers of heart failure are significantly increased at 3 and 5 but not at 2 months of age
• significant reduction in left ventricular ejection fraction
• lower left ventricular end-systolic pressure after administration of isoproterenol
• but, no significant difference in blood pressure of heart rate
• electrophysiological abnormalities with long QT
• decrease in Ca2+ sensitivity of force generation with a reduced pCa value at half-maximal force generation
• faster peak rates of increase and decrease in cytoplasmic Ca2+ in intact fibers compared to wild-type controls
• significant increase in cardiomyocyte apoptosis
• differences are larger in homozygotes compared to heterozygotes
• however, maximum force-generating capabilities and Hill coefficient values are not different from controls and intact fibers show no significant decrease in maximum isometric force per cross-sectional area

• significant reduction in left ventricular ejection fraction
