OBJECTIVES This study examined the protective effect of salubrinal and the mechanism underlying this protection against tunicamycin (TM)- and hypoxia-induced apoptosis in rat cardiomyocytes. METHODS Neonatal rat cardiomyocytes were cultured from the ventricles of 1-day-old Wistar rats. Cells were exposed to different concentrations of salubrinal (10, 20,(More)
The serine/threonine protein phosphatase PP1 mediates the dephosphorylation of phosphorylated eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 subunit α (p-eIF2α), which is a central regulator of protein synthesis. In the present study, we examined the protective effects of PP1-12 (an inhibitor of the serine/threonine protein phosphatase PP1) against tunicamycin(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the role of eIF2α in cardiomyocyte apoptosis and evaluate the cardioprotective role of salubrinal in a rat myocardial infarction (MI) model. Rat left anterior descending coronary arteries were ligated and the classical proteins involved in the endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS)-induced apoptotic pathway were(More)
Error averaging effect is one of the advantages of a parallel mechanism when individual errors are relatively large. However, further investigation is necessary to clarify the evidence with mathematical analysis and experiment. In the developed parallel coordinate measuring machine (PCMM), which is based on three pairs of prismatic-universal-universal(More)
