adenosine in the ostial lesions, and in sufficiently high doses if by the intracoronary method. Some studies have shown that intracoronary adenosine infusion does not attain the maximum hyperaemic state2,3 and that, as the team in Murcia has shown,4 only doses much higher than those initially recommended (>60 μg) achieve that effect. Finally, with respect(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Echocardiographic evaluation of right ventricular systolic function remains subject to debate because of the anatomic peculiarities of the right ventricle. Several methods have been developed for quantifying right ventricular systolic function. The aim of this study was to determine the reliability and reproducibility of a number(More)
Energy-transduction mechanisms in living organisms, such as photosynthesis and respiration, store light and chemical energy in the form of an electrochemical gradient created across a lipid bilayer. Herein we show that the proton concentration at an electrode/phospholipid-bilayer interface can be controlled and monitored electrochemically by immobilizing a(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Late contrast-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) enables areas of persistent microvascular obstruction (PMO) to be detected early after acute myocardial infarction. Our aim was to evaluate the impact of PMO on subsequent ventricular remodeling in a cohort of patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)(More)
Hydrogenases are highly active enzymes for hydrogen production and oxidation. [NiFeSe] hydrogenases, in which selenocysteine is a ligand to the active site Ni, have high catalytic activity and a bias for H2 production. In contrast to [NiFe] hydrogenases, they display reduced H2 inhibition and are rapidly reactivated after contact with oxygen. Here we report(More)
The effects of LHRH intracerebrally infused on acquisition of conditioned avoidance responses (CARs) and spontaneous motility were studied in adult male rats. The results were the following: 1) LHRH (1 and 2.5 micrograms/rat) administered through a cannula stereotaxically implanted into the lateral ventricle induced an impairment in the acquisition of CARs(More)
