The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a multifunctional intracellular organelle supporting many processes required by virtually every mammalian cell, including cardiomyocytes. It performs diverse functions, including protein synthesis, translocation across the membrane, integration into the membrane, folding, posttranslational modification including N-linked(More)
Dynamic and rapidly evolving nature of systems driven research imposes special requirements on the technology, approach, design and architecture of computational infrastructure including database and Web application. Several solutions have been proposed to meet the expectations and novel methods have been developed to address the persisting problems of data(More)
Integrated Pathway Resources, Analysis and Visualization System (iPAVS) is an integrated biological pathway database designed to support pathway discovery in the fields of proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and systems biology. The key goal of IPAVS is to provide biologists access to expert-curated pathways from experimental data belonging to(More)
Evidence has shown that endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) is associated with the pathogenesis of cardiac hypertrophy. The aim of this study was to investigate whether direct alleviation of ER stress by 4-phenylbutyric acid (PBA), a known chemical chaperone drug, could attenuate pressure-overload cardiac hypertrophy in mice. The effects of orally(More)
Pathological hypertrophy of the heart is closely associated with endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS), leading to maladaptations such as myocardial fibrosis, induction of apoptosis, and cardiac dysfunctions. Salubrinal is a known selective inhibitor of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) complex involving dephosphorylation of phospho-eukaryotic translation initiation(More)
In the heart, excitation-contraction (E-C) coupling is mediated by Ca(2+) release from sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) through the interactions of proteins forming the Ca(2+) release unit (CRU). Among them, calsequestrin (CSQ) and histidine-rich Ca(2+) binding protein (HRC) are known to bind the charged luminal region of triadin (TRN) and thus directly or(More)
Pressure overload in the heart induces pathological hypertrophy and is associated with cardiac dysfunction. Apoptosis and fibrosis signaling initiated by the endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) is known to contribute to these maladaptive effects. The aim of this study was to investigate whether reduction of ERS by a known chemical chaperone,(More)
