Effect of temperature on fatty acid metabolism in skeletal muscle mitochondria of untrained and endurance-trained rats
We studied the effects of various assay temperatures, representing hypothermia (25°C), normothermia (35°C), and hyperthermia (42°C), on the oxidation of lipid-derived fuels in rat skeletal muscleExpand

[Statins and mitochondria].
The aim of this review is to report on influence of statins on mitochondria function. Statins are serum cholesterol-lowering drugs. They act by competitively inhibiting 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylExpand

Aspirin and its pleiotropic application.
Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), the oldest synthetic drug, was originally used as an anti-inflammatory medication. Being an irreversible inhibitor of COX (prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase) enzymesExpand

Invited contribution to the volume: "Stem cells & cancer stem cells, regenerative medicine & cancer" (VSI stem cells) reprogramming and transdifferentiation - two key processes for regenerative
Regenerative medicine based on transplants obtained from donors or foetal and new-born mesenchymal stem cells, encounter important obstacles such as limited availability of organs, ethical issues andExpand
The Influence of Statins on the Aerobic Metabolism of Endothelial Cells
Endothelial mitochondrial dysfunction is considered to be the main cause of cardiovascular disease. The aim of this research was to elucidate the effects of cholesterol-lowering statins on theExpand
