Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF) affects the excitable and contractile properties of innervated skeletal muscles
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2003)
Efeito do envelhecimento sobre o comportamento mecânico dos músculos papilares de ratos Wistar.
PURPOSE--To evaluate the effects of age on mechanical performance of rat myocardium. METHODS--Left ventricular papillary muscles were isolated from male Wistar rats at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months of age. Muscles were studied ...
Ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) affects the excitable and contractile properties of innervated skeletal muscles
(Society of Biology of Chile, 2003)
The well-established trophic role of CNTF upon neurons led to performing clinical trials in patients of neurodegenerative diseases. However, trials were suspended due to side effects such as severe weight loss, hyperalgesia, ...
Hypertrophied myocardium is more dependent on extracellular calcium than the normal cardiac muscle
Background: The aim of this study was to analyze stable hypertrophied myocardial function and its response to inotropic maneuvers in rats submitted to renovascular hypertension for a 10-week period (RHT group, n=10). ...
Behavior analysis of electromyographic activity of the masseter muscle in sleep bruxers
The effects of occlusal splint on the electric activity of masseter were studied in 15 women who presented sleep bruxism using surface electromyography. Sleep bruxism was defined by its clinical characteristics. The signal ...
