We show the existence of a novel type of interstitial cell-telocytes (TC) in mouse trachea and lungs. We used cell cultures, vital stainings, as well as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and immunohistochemistry (IHC). Phase contrast microscopy on cultured cells showed cells with unequivocally characteristic(More)
End-stage hypertensive heart disease is an increasing cause of cardiac mortality. Therefore, the current study focused on the cardiac remodelling from hypertrophy to fibrosis in old-aged spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs), and explored the therapeutic effects of Rosuvastatin and its possible mechanism(s) of action. Spontaneously hypertensive rats at age(More)
We utilized proteomic techniques in a primate model (Macaca fascicularis) of aging to determine potential mechanisms to explain gender differences in protection of the aging heart. The majority of prior work in this field utilized rodent models, and importantly no prior study utilized a proteomic approach in the aging heart. We studied changes in proteins(More)
