To test the hypothhesis that female sex hormone may produce cardioprotection by negatively modulating the [beta]-AR, the predominant receptor in the heart responding to the sympathetic nervous system; to determine whether the signaling pathway that mediates the rappid actions of estrogen, involves the messengers, known to mediate the action of membrane receptors.
