Nitric oxide (NO) and monocyte chemoattractant protein–1
(MCP-1) exert partly opposing effects in vascular biology. NO plays pleiotropic
vasoprotective roles including vasodilation and inhibition of platelet
aggregation, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and endothelial monocyte
The aim of this study was to investigate the role of stress and nerve
growth factor (NGF) on the expression of vascular–endothelial growth factor
(VEGF) and NGF high–affinity receptor (tyrosine kinase A, TrKA) in the
ascending and abdominal aorta.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterized by vasoconstriction
and by obstructive changes of the pulmonary vasculature including
smooth muscle cell proliferation which leads to medial hypertrophy and
subsequent luminal narrowing. Sildenafil, an orally active inhibitor of cGMP...
Plasma renin activity (PRA) is often found to increase after
myocardial infarction (MI). Elevated PRA may contribute to increased
myocardial angiotensin II that is responsible for maladaptive remodeling of
the myocardium after MI. We hypothesized that MI would also result in cardiac
We evaluated the effect of the inhalant anesthetic isoflurane and
the injectable combination of anesthetics ketamine/inactin on cardiac function
by measuring left ventricular (LV) pressure in situ during control conditions
and during β-adrenergic stimulation with isoproterenol (ISO). The
The present study investigated the tolerance of the isolated rat
heart to ischemia–reperfusion after administration of trimetazidine (TMZ) at
different experimental phases, as well as the possible involvement of p38
MAPK and JNKs in this response. Isolated rat hearts were perfused in...
Dilated cardiomyopathies (DCM) are due to progressive dilatation
of the cardiac cavities and thinning of the ventricular walls and lead
unavoidably to heart failure. They represent a major cause for heart transplantation
and, therefore, defining an efficient symptomatic treatment for
