Incubating cells at elevated temperatures causes an inhibition of protein synthesis. Mild heat stress at 41-42 degrees C inhibits the fraction of active, polysomal ribosomes from greater than 60% (preheating) to less than 30%. A return to 37 degrees C leads to an increase in protein synthesis, termed "recovery." Continuous incubation at 41-42 degrees C also(More)
BACKGROUND Pericardial adipose tissue (PAT) has been shown to be an independent predictor of coronary artery disease. To date its assessment has been restricted to the use of surrogate echocardiographic indices such as measurement of epicardial fat thickness over the right ventricular free wall, which have limitations. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance(More)
AIM Arteriovenous fistula-formation remains critical for the provision of hemodialysis in end-stage renal failure patients. Its creation results in a significant increase in cardiac output, with resultant alterations in cardiac stroke volume, systemic blood flow, and vascular resistance. The impact of fistula-formation on cardiac and vascular structure and(More)
