Nitric oxide regulates the heart by spatial confinement of nitric oxide synthase isoforms
Subcellular localization of nitric oxide (NO) synthases with effector molecules is an important regulatory mechanism for NO signalling. In the heart, NO inhibits L-type Ca2+ channels but stimulatesExpand

Large-scale gene-centric meta-analysis across 39 studies identifies type 2 diabetes loci.
To identify genetic factors contributing to type 2 diabetes (T2D), we performed large-scale meta-analyses by using a custom ∼50,000 SNP genotyping array (the ITMAT-Broad-CARe array) with ∼2000Expand

BET Bromodomains Mediate Transcriptional Pause Release in Heart Failure
Heart failure (HF) is driven by the interplay between regulatory transcription factors and dynamic alterations in chromatin structure. Pathologic gene transactivation in HF is associated withExpand

The diastolic pulmonary gradient does not predict survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease.
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate if diastolic pulmonary gradient (DPG) can predict survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease (PH-LHD). BACKGROUND PatientsExpand

Interaction between loop diuretic-associated mortality and blood urea nitrogen concentration in chronic heart failure.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a surrogate for renal neurohormonal activation, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), could identify patients destined to experience adverseExpand

Effect of Inorganic Nitrate on Exercise Capacity in Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction
Background— Inorganic nitrate (NO3−), abundant in certain vegetables, is converted to nitrite by bacteria in the oral cavity. Nitrite can be converted to nitric oxide in the setting of hypoxia. WeExpand

High-Sensitivity ST2 for Prediction of Adverse Outcomes in Chronic Heart Failure
Background—Soluble ST2 reflects activity of an interleukin-33–dependent cardioprotective signaling axis and is a diagnostic and prognostic marker in acute heart failure. The use of ST2 in chronicExpand

Transcriptional Genomics Associates FOX Transcription Factors With Human Heart Failure
Background— Specific transcription factors (TFs) modulate cardiac gene expression in murine models of heart failure, but their relevance in human subjects remains untested. We developed and applied aExpand
