Transient left ventricular apical ballooning without coronary artery stenosis: a novel heart syndrome mimicking acute myocardial infarction. Angina Pectoris-Myocardial Infarction Investigations in
OBJECTIVES To determine the clinical features of a novel heart syndrome with transient left ventricular (LV) apical ballooning, but without coronary artery stenosis, that mimics acute myocardialExpand

Prognostic impact of spontaneous coronary artery dissection in young female patients with acute myocardial infarction: A report from the Angina Pectoris-Myocardial Infarction Multicenter
BACKGROUND We sought to compare the prognosis of patients with spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and atherosclerosis as the cause of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), especially in youngExpand

Simple and accurate electrocardiographic criteria to differentiate takotsubo cardiomyopathy from anterior acute myocardial infarction.
To the Editor: Because clinical features of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) mimic those of anterior acute myocardial infarction (AMI) ([1][1]), the differential diagnosis is important in selecting theExpand

Polymorphism of the Type 6 Adenylyl Cyclase Gene and Cardiac Hypertrophy
Summary: We investigated whether polymorphism of the type 6 adenylyl cyclase gene influences the occurrence of left ventricular hypertrophy in a Japanese population. Type 6 adenylyl cyclase is aExpand

The novel angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R)‐associated protein ATRAP downregulates AT1R and ameliorates cardiomyocyte hypertrophy
Activation of angiotensin II (Ang II) type 1 receptor (AT1R) signaling is reported to play an important role in cardiac hypertrophy. We previously cloned a novel molecule interacting with the AT1R,Expand

Search for Microorganisms Producing Cephalosporin Acylase and Enzymatic Synthesis of Cephalosporins
Microorganisms were tested for production of cephalosporin acylase. Some bacteria showed strong acylase activity for all of cephalexin, cephaloridine, cephalotin, penicillin G and ampicillin. SomeExpand

Beneficial effect of early infusion of landiolol, a very short-acting beta-1 adrenergic receptor blocker, on reperfusion status in acute myocardial infarction.
BACKGROUND An early IV beta blocker during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been shown to reduce infarct size in ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI), althoughExpand
