Myocardial ischemia results in tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) oxidation with impaired endothelial function ameliorated by BH4
Coronary vasodilation is impaired in the postischemic heart with a loss of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) activity, but the mechanisms underlying ischemia-induced eNOS dysfunction are notExpand

The Credit Risk
At a conceptual level, the credit risk is a component of market risk. It can occur as a result of two causes: the issuing company does not want/can no longer meet its obligations; damage to theExpand

The Riemann Hypothesis
In this article I describe a proof of the fact that ZFC cannot decide whether a certain modified Turing machine, or computer (satisfying a certain condition) will ever halt successfully in finiteExpand

A monotonicity property of Riemann’s xi function and a reformulation of the Riemann hypothesis
We prove that Riemann’s xi function is strictly increasing (respectively, strictly decreasing) in modulus along every horizontal half-line in any zero-free, open right (respect respectively, left) half-plane. Expand

Leptin modulates the negative inotropic effect of interleukin-1β in cardiac myocytes
Interleukin-1β (IL-1β) is a potent negative inotrope implicated in the functional abnormalities of heart failure. Because the adipokine, leptin, protects against some of the cardiovascular effects ofExpand

Mechanical alternans and restitution in failing SHHF rat left ventricles.
We examined mechanical alternans and electromechanical restitution in normal and failing rat hearts. Alternans occurred at 5 Hz in failing versus 9 Hz in control hearts and was reversed by 300 nMExpand

Mission Theology in the Old Testament: A New Paradigm
In theological and missionary circles there is a growing tendency to look for a valid justification of mission. The Bible is searched and most scholars identify several passages in the New TestamentExpand

Transverse oriented electric field re-entrant resonator (TERR) with automatic tuning and coupling control for EPR spectroscopy and imaging of the beating heart.
Sample motion, particularly that of a beating heart, induces baseline noise and spectral distortion on an EPR spectrum. In order to quench motional noise and restore the EPR signal amplitude andExpand

Phase I and phase II of short-term mechanical restitution in perfused rat left ventricles.
We examined the contributions of the Ca(2+) channels of the sarcolemma and of the sarcoplasmic reticulum to electromechanical restitution. Extrasystoles (F(1)) were interpolated 40-600 ms following aExpand
