Most of the experimental studies have revealed that female heart is more tolerant to ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury as compared with the male myocardium. It is widely accepted that mitochondrial dysfunction, and particularly mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPTP) opening, plays a major role in determining the extent of cardiac I/R injury.

Cardiac resistance against acute ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury can be enhanced by adaptation to chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH), but the changes at the molecular level associated with this adaptation are still not fully explored. Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) plays an important role in phospholipid metabolism and may contribute to membrane destruction(More)
