Myocardial dysfunction is an important manifestation of sepsis. Previous studies suggest that melatonin is protective against sepsis. In addition, activation of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt) signaling pathway has been reported to be beneficial in sepsis. However, the role of PI3K/Akt signaling in the protective effect of(More)
Mitophagy, a cellular process that selectively targets dysfunctional mitochondria for degradation, is currently a hot topic in research into the pathogenesis and treatment of many human diseases. Considering that hypoxia causes mitochondrial dysfunction, which results in cell death, we speculated that selective activation of mitophagy might promote cell(More)
Sepsis is a severe inflammatory response to systemic infection that frequently affects the myocardium. Previous studies have suggested that resveratrol (RESV) is protective in sepsis. The present study aimed to investigate the role of sirtuin 1 (Sirt1) signaling in the protective effect of intraperitoneally administered RESV against sepsis‑induced(More)
CONTEXT Although it is recognized that thrombin plays a key role in airway remodeling during chronic asthma. In a previous study, we have proved that thrombin promotes airway remodeling via PAR-1 in OVA-allergic rats, but little is known about intracellular signaling pathway involved in the event. OBJECTIVE In this study, we intend to explore the impact(More)
