We investigated whether the pathways linked to Toll-like receptors 2 and 4 (TLRs) are involved in renal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R)-induced cardiac hypertrophy. Wild type (WT) C57BL/6J, TLR2-/- and TLR4-/- mice were subjected to left kidney ischemia for 60 min followed by reperfusion for 5, 8, 12 and 15 days. Proton density magnetic resonance showed(More)
OBJECTIVES In the present study, we investigated whether MSC-transplantation can revert cardiac dysfunction in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats and the immunoregulatory effects of MSC were examined. BACKGROUND Cardiac complications are one of the main causes of death in diabetes. Several studies have shown anti-diabetic effects of bone marrow(More)
BACKGROUND Tissue remodeling is usually dependent on the deposition of extracellular matrix that may result in tissue stiffness and impaired myocardium contraction. OBJECTIVES We had previously demonstrated that renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) is able to induce development of cardiac hypertrophy in mice. Therefore, we aimed to characterize renal(More)
