Adult mammalian cardiomyocytes are considered terminally differentiated and incapable of proliferation. Consequently, acutely injured mammalian hearts do not regenerate, they scar. Here, we show that adult mammalian cardiomyocytes can divide. One important mechanism used by mammalian cardiomyocytes to control cell cycle is p38 MAP kinase activity. p38(More)
Endothelin is a recently discovered vasoconstrictor peptide that is synthesized in certain vascular endothelial cells. We have identified the cardiovascular, renal, and hormonal responses that can be elicited in conscious dogs by intravenous administration of endothelin at rates of 10 and 30 ng.kg-1.min-1 for 60 min (0.24 and 0.72 nmol.kg-1/1-h infusion).(More)
The magnitude of the natriuretic response to an infusion of alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptide (alpha-hANP) has varied considerably in different studies. The greatest renal responses to alpha-hANP infusion have been observed in barbiturate-anesthetized dogs. We therefore examined the renal, hormonal, and cardiovascular responses to alpha-hANP infusion(More)
Human endothelin, a 21-residue peptide produced by vascular endothelial cells, was infused intravenously into trained conscious dogs at a rate of 20 ng.kg-1.min-1 for 1 hr. Endothelin produced a renal vasoconstriction that persisted during a 40-minute recovery period. Sarafotoxin S6b, a closely related 21-residue peptide that has been isolated from the(More)
A series of inhibitors for the 90 kDa ribosomal S6 kinase (RSK) based on an 1-oxo-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-[1,4]diazepino[1,2-a]indole-8-carboxamide scaffold were optimized for cellular potency and kinase selectivity. This led to the identification of compound 24, BIX 02565, an attractive candidate for use in vitro and in vivo to explore the role of RSK as a(More)
