The aim of this study was to test whether morphine prevents the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening through Zn(2+) and glycogen synthase kinase 3beta (GSK-3beta). Fluorescence dyes including Newport Green Dichlorofluorescein (DCF), 4-amino-5-methylamino-2',7'-difluorofluorescein (DAF-FM), and tetramethylrhodamine ethyl ester (TMRE)(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether Zn2+ is involved in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress inhibition-induced cardioprotection against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury by modulation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening. Isolated rat hearts were subjected to 30-min regional ischemia followed by 2 h of reperfusion.(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate whether astragaloside IV modulates the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening through glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK-3β) in H9c2 cells. METHODS H9c2 cells were exposed to astragaloside IV for 20 min. GSK-3β (Ser(9)), Akt (Ser(473)), and VASP (Ser(239)) activities were determined with western(More)
