We investigated the role of tyrosine kinase (TK) signaling in the opening of the ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) channel and 72-kDa heat shock protein (HSP72) expression during late preconditioning. Rabbits were subjected to surgical operation (sham) or were preconditioned (PC) with four cycles of 5 min of ischemia and 10 min of reperfusion. Twenty-four hours(More)
BACKGROUND Generalized hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) occurring during exposure to hypoxia is a detrimental process resulting in an increase in lung vascular resistance. Nebulization of sodium nitrite has been shown to inhibit HPV. The aim of this project was to investigate and compare the effects of nebulization of nitrite and different(More)
BACKGROUND The cardioprotective effect of preconditioning can be exerted within 1 to 2 hours after initial ischemia, termed classical or early preconditioning, or can reappear 24 hours later as second window or late preconditioning. The objective of this study was to study the interaction between late and early preconditioning and to determine the potential(More)
