The hypothesis was tested that vardenafil, a PDE5 inhibitor,
specifically enhances coronary vasodilation during acidosis. In isolated constant
pressure perfused guinea pig hearts, infusion of vardenafil (≤ 1 μM) increased
coronary flow concentration-dependently 34 % above baseline. In
Over recent years, the role of matrix vesicles in the initial stages
of arterial calcification has been recognized. Matrix calcifying vesicles have
been isolated from atherosclerotic arteries and the biochemical composition
of calcified vesicles has been studied. No studies have yet been carried...
The present study was designed to compare alterations of endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation in coronary epicardial arteries and
subendocardial arterioles occurring in left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH)
secondary to 60 days of aortic banding in a porcine model.
Endothelin (ET)-1 is an endogenous vasoconstrictor which
modulates norepinephrine (NE) release in myocardial ischemia reperfusion.
Recent studies have demonstrated the pro- or anti-arrhythmic effects in
reperfusion. The present studies were undertaken to test the hypothesis that
Recently we found that post-infarct remodeling disrupts PI3KAkt
signaling triggered by erythropoietin (EPO) but an unknown compensatory
mechanism preserves EPO-induced protection against infarction in
those hearts. In this study, we examined the possibility that ERK-mediated
signaling is the...
Reactive cardiomyocyte hypertrophy after myocardial infarction
is an important risk factor for arrhythmias. Myocardial ATP-sensitive
potassium (KATP) channels have been implicated in attenuating cardiac hypertrophy
by inhibition of 70-kDa S6 kinase. We investigated the effect of
