Opioids introduced at reperfusion (R) following ischemia (I) reduce infarct size much like postconditioning, suggesting the hypothesis that postconditioning increases cardiac opioids and activates local opioid receptors. Anesthetized male rats subjected to 30 min regional I and 3 h R were postconditioned with three cycles of 10 s R and 10 s reocclusion at(More)
OBJECTIVE Using non-selective and selective protein kinase C (PKC) epsilon and delta isoform inhibitors, we tested the hypothesis that the cardioprotective phenotype invoked by postconditioning (postcon) is dependent on PKC signalling. Furthermore, we determined whether postconditioning alters pPKCepsilon and/or pPKCdelta in cytosolic and mitochondrial(More)
Protease-activated receptor-2 (PAR-2) may have proinflammatory effects in some tissues and protective effects in other tissues. The role of PAR-2 in in vivo myocardial ischemia-reperfusion has not yet been determined. This study tested the hypothesis that PAR-2 activation with the PAR-2 agonist peptide SLIGRL (PAR-2 AP) reduces myocardial infarct size when(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of Dureping injection to the murinal celiac macrophage Ana-1 on TIR signal pathway. METHOD Ana-1 cell line was infected by influenza virus FM1 strain and treated with the Dureping injection in different concentrations (10.1 mg x L(-1) group) for 12 h and 24 h. Then we collected the cells, extracted mRNA and measured(More)
