Insulin/NFkB protects against ischemia-induced necrotic cardiomyocyte death
In the heart, insulin controls key functions such as metabolism, muscle contraction and cell death. However, all studies have been focused on insulin action during reperfusion. Here we explore the cardioprotective action ...
Mitochondrial dynamics, mitophagy and cardiovascular disease
Cardiac hypertrophy is often initiated as an adaptive response to haemodynamic stress or myocardial injury, and allows the heart to meet an increased demand for oxygen. Although initially beneficial, hypertrophy can ...
Use of (all-blood) miniplegia versus crystalloid cardioplegia in an experimental model of acute myocardial ischemia

Ethnopharmacology relevance: Blepharocalyx salicifolius (Kunth) O. Berg (Myrtaceae) is a tree native to Argentina and Uruguay that grows and is cultivated along the riverside of the Rio de la Plata. The leaves of this plant ...
Fibroblast Primary Cilia Are Required for Cardiac Fibrosis
(NLM (Medline), 2019)
BACKGROUND: The primary cilium is a singular cellular structure that extends from the surface of many cell types and plays crucial roles in vertebrate development, including that of the heart. Whereas ciliated cells have ...
Clinical aspects of c-type natriuretic peptide on the cardiovascular system
C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is one of the three most important members of the human natriuretic peptide family, sharing with them a highly conserved 17-aminoacid ring structure, essential to elicit its biological ...
Alterações na produção de IL-10 e TNF-α no músculo esquelético em ratos com insuficiência cardíaca secundária ao infarto do miocárdio
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia - SBC, 2010)
FUNDAMENTO: Estudos recentes demonstram que a expressão de mediadores inflamatórios, como as citocinas, é um importante fator de desenvolvimento e progressão da insuficiência cardíaca (IC), principalmente na presença de ...
