Cardiomyocyte-restricted peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-δ deletion perturbs myocardial fatty acid oxidation and leads to cardiomyopathy
Fatty acid oxidation (FAO) is a primary energy source for meeting the heart's energy requirements. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-δ (PPAR-δ) may have important roles in FAO. But itExpand
Cardiac peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma is essential in protecting cardiomyocytes from oxidative damage.
OBJECTIVES Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR) alpha and beta/delta are essential transcriptional regulators of fatty acid oxidation in the heart. However, little is known about theExpand
PPARdelta modulates lipopolysaccharide-induced TNFalpha inflammation signaling in cultured cardiomyocytes.
Peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs: PPARalpha, gamma and delta) regulate fatty acid metabolism, glucose homeostasis, cell proliferation, differentiation and inflammation. TumorExpand
Adiponectin and its receptors are expressed in adult ventricular cardiomyocytes and upregulated by activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma.
Adiponectin is a protein hormone involved in maintaining energy homeostasis in metabolically active tissues. It enhances glucose and lipid metabolism via activation of AMP-dependent kinase (AMPK) inExpand
PPARδ modulates lipopolysaccharide-induced TNFα inflammation signaling in cultured cardiomyocytes
Abstract Peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs: PPARα, γ and δ) regulate fatty acid metabolism, glucose homeostasis, cell proliferation, differentiation and inflammation. Tumor necrosisExpand
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta activates fatty acid oxidation in cultured neonatal and adult cardiomyocytes.
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARalpha, -gamma and -delta) are nuclear receptors involved in transcriptional regulations of lipid metabolism. The effect of PPARalpha in regulation ofExpand
Protein kinase C promotes cardiac fibrosis and heart failure by modulating galectin-3 expression.
Protein kinase C (PKC) and galectin-3 are two important mediators that play a key pathogenic role in cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure (HF). However, the molecular mechanisms and signalingExpand
Force Frequency Relationship of the Human Ventricle Increases During Early Postnatal Development
Understanding developmental changes in contractility is critical to improving therapies for young cardiac patients. Isometric developed force was measured in human ventricular muscle strips from twoExpand
Cardioprotection from oxidative stress in the newborn heart by activation of PPARγ is mediated by catalase.
Regulation of catalase (CAT) by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) was investigated to determine if PPARγ activation provides cardioprotection from oxidative stress caused byExpand
Insulin ameliorates miR-1-induced injury in H9c2 cells under oxidative stress via Akt activation
Growing evidence indicates that aberrant upregulation of microRNA-1 (miR-1) occurs in ischemic myocardium. In addition, insulin elicits metabolism-independent cardioprotection against cardiovascularExpand
