Background—Heart failure is characterized by contractile dysfunction of the myocardium and elevated sympathetic activity. We tested the hypothesis that chronic ␣-adrenergic (␣-ADR) stimulation modifies the molecular and contractile phenotype of cardiac myocytes. Methods and Results—Adult rat ventricular myocytes in culture were exposed to ␣-ADR stimulation(More)
Quantification of tumor-associated mRNA extracted from blood cells/tissues containing tumor cells is used for evaluation of treatment efficacy or residual tumor cell burden in tumors including leukemia. However, this method using tumor cell-containing blood/tissue is difficult to evaluate the whole tumor cell burden in the body. In order to establish an(More)
