The Trop-2 signalling network in cancer growth
Our findings show that upregulation of a wild-type Trop-2 has a key controlling role in human cancer growth, and that tumour development is quantitatively driven by Trop-2 expression levels. However,Expand

Levosimendan induces NO production through p38 MAPK, ERK and Akt in porcine coronary endothelial cells: role for mitochondrial KATP channel
Background and purpose:  Levosimendan acts as a vasodilator through the opening of ATP‐sensitive K+ channels (KATP) channels. Moreover, the coronary vasodilatation caused by levosimendan inExpand
