Functional and structural alterations of cardiac and skeletal muscle mitochondria in heart failure patients
(Elsevier Inc, 2014-04)
Background and Aims: The fundamental mechanisms involved in the genesis and progression of heart failure are not clearly understood. The present study was conducted to analyze the cardiac mitochondrial involvement in heart ...
Myostatin and follistatin expression in skeletal muscles of rats with chronic heart failure
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2010-02-01)
P>Skeletal muscle abnormalities can contribute to decreased exercise capacity in heart failure. Although muscle atrophy is a common alteration in heart failure, the mechanisms responsible for muscle mass reduction are not ...
Myosin heavy chain expression and atrophy in rat skeletal muscle during transition from cardiac hypertrophy to heart failure
(Blackwell Publishing, 2003-08-01)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether changes in myosin heavy chain (MHC) expression and atrophy in rat skeletal muscle are observed during transition from cardiac hypertrophy to chronic heart failure ...
SARCOPLASMIC-ENDOPLASMIC-RETICULUM CA(2+)-ATPASE AND CALSEQUESTRIN ARE OVEREXPRESSED IN SPARED INTRINSIC LARYNGEAL MUSCLES OF DYSTROPHIN-DEFICIENT MDX MICE
(John Wiley & Sons IncHobokenEUA, 2009)
Direct effects of colchicine on myocardial function - Studies in hypertrophied and failing spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2014)
Cardiac remodeling in a rat model of diet-induced obesity
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-10-01)
The mechanisms by which diet-induced obesity cause remodeling and cardiac dysfunction are still unknown. Interstitial collagen and myocardial ultrastructure are important in the development of left ventricular hypertrophy, ...
Efeito do Nível de Energia da Dieta e da Exposição Prévia ao Calor sobre a Respiração Mitocondrial do Músculo Cardíaco de Frangos de Corte
This work was conducted aiming to evaluate the effect of dietary energy level and the previous heat exposure on the respiratory activity of the mitochondria from the cardiac muscle of broiler chickens. It was used broiler ...
Comparative mechanical study of isolated papillary muscle from Wistar-Kyoto and Wistar rats
Isolated papillary muscles have often been used in myocardial mechanical function studies. The objective of the present study was to compare the mechanical function of papillary muscle isolated from left ventricle between ...
Effect of treadmill training on cardiac size, heart rate and muscle mass in healthy dogs
(G R Journals, 2014)
The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in heart rate, cardiac size and muscle mass in healthy dogs during an aerobic training program. Dogs (n=9) had 10-min treadmill sessions twice a week for 12 weeks. Data were ...
