Mannose-binding lectin: an ancient molecule with new implications in myocardial infarction

Hypothesis of the pathophysiological mechanism of MBL in myocardial infarction. Presumably low MBL-levels result in a lower incidence of fatal arrhythmias by modulating myocardial ischaemia/reperfusion injury.
