BACKGROUND The mechanism of delayed preconditioning induced by activation of adenosine A(1) receptors (A(1)ARs) is not fully understood. We determined the role of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in mediating adenosine-induced late cardioprotection using pharmacological inhibitors and iNOS gene-knockout mice. METHODS AND RESULTS Adult male mice were(More)
BACKGROUND Elicitations are considered to be an important strategy towards improved in vitro production of secondary metabolites. In cell cultures, biotic and abiotic elicitors have effectively stimulated the production of plant secondary metabolites. However, molecular basis of elicitor-signaling cascades leading to increased production of secondary(More)
BACKGROUND Heat-shock protein 70 (HSP 70) plays a role in myocardial protection. No studies are available, however, to show that direct gene transfer of HSP 70 reduces myocardial infarction in vivo. METHODS AND RESULTS Rabbit hearts were injected with vehicle or Ad.HSP70 at 3 sites (1.5x10(9) pfu, 50 microL/site) in the left ventricle (LV). Four days(More)
In plants, calcium-dependent protein kinases (CDPKs) are key intermediates in calcium-mediated signaling that couple changes in Ca2+ levels to a specific response. In the present study, we report the high-level soluble expression of calcium-dependent protein kinase1 from Cicer arietinum (CaCDPK1) in Escherichia coli. The expression of soluble CaCDPK1 was(More)
