The role of pacing postconditioning (PPC) in the heart protection against ischemia–reperfusion injury is not completely understood. The aim of this study was to investigated if 17-β-estradiol (estrogen, E2), endogenous atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), endogenous brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) are involved in(More)
BACKGROUND The protective effects of 17-beta estradiol (E2) on cardiac tissue during ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury have not yet been fully elucidated. OBJECTIVE To assess the protective effects of short- and long-term E2 treatments on cardiac tissue exposed to I/R, and to assess the effects of these treatments in combination with ischemic(More)
BACKGROUND Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) has been reported to play an important role in ischemia reperfusion injury and ischemic preconditioning (IPC). However, its role is not completely understood. Recently, normothermic IPC (NIPC), hyperthermic IPC (HIPC), preconditioning (PC) with 17-beta estradiol (estrogen, E2) and E2 pretreatment were proven(More)
It is well established that brief episodes of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) [preconditioning (PC)] protect the myocardium from the damage induced by subsequent more prolonged I/R. However, the signaling pathways activated during PC or I/R are not well characterized. In this study, the role of Ras-GTPase, tyrosine kinases (TKs), epidermal growth factor receptor(More)
The sequential pattern of lipid accumulation and associated biochemical changes were studied in two commonly used experimental models of nutritional fatty liver in rats. Female rats were maintained for 8 weeks on high fat, low protein diets containing adequate methionine and choline, and drinking water ad libitum (Diet 1), or deficient in methionine and(More)
The signaling pathways involved in ischemic heart disease are not well characterized. In this study, the roles of Ras-GTPase, tyrosine kinases (TKs) and Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) in global ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) in a perfused rat heart model were investigated and compared to beneficial effects produced by preconditioning(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of inhibition of Ras-GTPase mediated signalling on the development of hypertension and end-organ damage in spontaneously hypertensive rats chronically treated with nitric oxide synthesis inhibitor L-NAME (SHR-L-NAME). Administration of L-NAME in drinking water (80 mg/L) for 3 weeks significantly elevated(More)
1 The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of inhibition of the formation of cytochrome P450 metabolites of arachidonic acid with 1-aminobenzotriazole (ABT) on the development of hypertension and end-organ damage in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) chronically treated with nitric oxide synthesis inhibitor L-NAME (SHR-L-NAME). 2(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the additive protective efficiency of ischemic preconditioning when used in combination with conventional clinically relevant cardioprotective methods of hypothermia or hypothermic cardioplegia during sustained global ischemia. Isolated rat hearts were aorta-perfused with Krebs-Henseleit buffer and were divided into six(More)
