Increased expression of Bcl-xL in cancer has been shown to confer resistance to a broad range of apoptotic stimuli and to modulate a number of other aspects of cellular physiology, including energy metabolism, cell cycle, autophagy, mitochondrial fission/fusion and cellular adhesion. However, only few of these activities have a mechanistic explanation. Here(More)
It is widely accepted that tumorigenesis is a multistep process characterized by the sequential accumulation of genetic alterations. However, the molecular basis of genomic instability in cancer is still partially understood. The observation that hereditary cancers are often characterized by mutations in DNA repair and checkpoint genes suggests that(More)
Vascular reactivity, heart rate responses to vasoconstrictor and/or vasodilatator agents and catecholamine and arginine vasopressin turnover were studied in normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WKY), spontaneously hypertensive (SHR), normolipemic Brown Norway (BN) and spontaneously hyperlipemic Yoshida (YOS) anaesthetized rats at 2, 6 and 18 months of age. In this(More)
