Based on growing evidence linking autophagy to preconditioning, we tested the hypothesis that autophagy is necessary for cardioprotection conferred by ischemic preconditioning (IPC). We induced IPC with three cycles of 5 min regional ischemia alternating with 5 min reperfusion and assessed the induction of autophagy in mCherry-LC3 transgenic mice by imaging(More)
Genetic factors implicated in the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease are poorly understood. Our aim was to characterize three genes involved in a rat model of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and investigate the effect of rosiglitazone and bezafibrate. Five rats were fed a chow diet (controls) and 18 a fructose-enriched diet (FED) for 5(More)
Effects of extremely low intensity and frequencies of Weak Electromagnetic Fields (WMF) on the cardiovascular system have been reported. However, little is known about the physical mechanism of interactions between magnetic fields and physiology. The aim of this study was to explore the effect of WMF at Extremely Low Frequencies (ELF) on Ca 2+ transients,(More)
