One main function of TLRs in the non-immune system is to regulate apoptosis. TLRs are the central mediators in hepatic, pulmonary, brain, and renal(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess plasma levels of endothelium- and heart-associated microRNAs (miRNAs) miR-126 and miR-499, respectively, using quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. METHODS A two-step analysis was conducted on 75 patients undergoing off-pomp coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Five biomarkers(More)
The age-related senescence of adult tissues is associated with the decreased level of angiogenic capability and with the development of a degenerative disease such as atherosclerosis which thereafter result in the deteriorating function of multiple systems. Findings indicate that tissue senescence not only diminishes repair processes but also promotes(More)
