Using an isolated non-working rat heart model, this study investigated the mechanisms of pharmacological pre-conditioning (PC) induced by P2Y receptor stimulation with pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP). After 6-hydroxydopamine pretreatment and a 15-min stabilization period, isolated rat hearts were perfused for 25 min then subjected to 40 min of global ischemia(More)
Most of the cardioprotective effects of long-chain omega 3 fatty acids, namely docosahexaenoic (DHA; 22:6n-3) and eicosapentaenoic (EPA; 20:5n-3), are due to their hypotriglyceridemic and anti-inflammatory effects, which lower the risk for cardiovascular disease and myocardial infarction. Little is known on the direct preventive activities of DHA and EPA on(More)
Elastin peptides (EPs) generated by hydrolysis of elastic fibers by elastinolytic enzymes display a wide spectrum of biological activities. Here, we investigated their influence on rat heart ischemia-mediated injury using the Langendorff ex vivo model. EPs, i.e., kappa elastin, at 1.32- and 660-nM concentrations, when administered before the ischemia(More)
