Focal adhesion kinase - The basis of local hypertrophic signaling domains
Trypanosoma cruzi Infection Induces Pannexin-1 Channel Opening in Cardiac Myocytes
Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas diseases, invades the cardiac tissue causing acute myocarditis and heart electrical disturbances. In T. cruzi invasion, the parasite induces [Ca2+](i) transients in the ...
A method to estimate mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake in intact cardiac myocytes
(Assoc Bras Divulg CientificaSao PauloBrasil, 1996)
Gender differences in cardiac left ventricular mass and function: clinical and experimental observations
(Via Medica, 2014-01)
Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate gender-associated impact on left ventricular mass (LVM) and on left ventricular function (LVF) in humans and rats with aging. Methods: Myocyte area and collagen volume ...
Aldose reductase induced by hyperosmotic stress mediates cardiomyocyte apoptosis - Differential effects of sorbitol and mannitol
(AMER SOC BIOCHEMISTRY MOLECULAR BIOLOGY INC, 2003-10-03)
Cells adapt to hyperosmotic conditions by several mechanisms, including accumulation of sorbitol via induction of the polyol pathway. Failure to adapt to osmotic stress can result in apoptotic cell death. In the present ...
Ca2+/ Calmodulin dependent protein kinase II and androgen signaling pathways modulate MEF2 activity in testosterone induced cardiac myocyte hypertrophy
(Frontiers media SA, 2017)
Testosterone is known to induce cardiac hypertrophy through androgen receptor (AR)-dependent and -independent pathways, but the molecular underpinnings of the androgen action remain poorly understood. Previous work has ...
