Introduction
Maintenance of optimal cellular bioenergetics is an essen-
tial requirement for myocardial function, including normal
contraction and relaxation, as well as preservation of ion
homeostasis, signal transduction, and gene expression [1
4]. Regardless of its diverse etiopathogenesis, heart failure is
characterized by progressive loss of a number of energy-
dependent cellular functions [5,6,7]. In this regard,
