Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1)-dependent carbon monoxide (CO) production related to reperfusion-induced ventricular fibrillation (VF) was studied in HO-1 wild-type (+/+), heterozygous (+/−), and homozygous (−/−) isolated ischemic/reperfused mouse heart. In HO-1 homozygous myocardium, under aerobic conditions, HO-1 enzyme activity, HO-1 mRNA, and protein expression(More)
The resveratrol-induced cardiac protection was studied in Zucker obese rats. Rats were divided into five groups: group 1, lean control; group 2, obese control (OC); group 3, obese rats treated orally with 5 mg kg(-1) day(-1) of resveratrol (OR) for 2 wk; group 4, obese rats received 10% glucose solution ad libitum for 3 wk (OG); and group 5, obese rats(More)
Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) transgenic mice (Tg) were created using a rat HO-1 genomic transgene. Transgene expression was detected by RT-PCR and Western blots in the left ventricle (LV), right ventricle (RV) and septum (S) in mouse hearts, and its function was demonstrated by the elevated HO enzyme activity. Tg and non-transgenic (NTg) mouse hearts were(More)
