Premature newborns are frequently exposed to hyperoxia ventilation and some literature data indicate the possibility of hyperoxia-induced myocardial damage. Since nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) is a crucial signaling molecule involved in physiological response to hyperoxia in different cell types as well as in various tissues, our attention has been focused on(More)
Premature newborns are frequently exposed to hyperoxic conditions and experimental data indicate modulation of liver metabolism by hyperoxia in the first postnatal period. Conversely, nothing is known about possible modulation of growth factors and signaling molecules involved in other hyperoxic responses and no data are available about the effects of(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the presence of Neuroglobin (Ngb) and Cytoglobin (Cygb) in the solitary tract nucleus (STN) and in the carotid body of human subjects. Transverse serial sections of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded brainstems, taken from six subjects, were investigated. Ngb and Cygb are expressed in both the structures.(More)
