MicroRNA-21 contributes to myocardial disease by stimulating MAP kinase signalling in fibroblasts
MicroRNAs comprise a broad class of small non-coding RNAs that control expression of complementary target messenger RNAs. Dysregulation of microRNAs by several mechanisms has been described inExpand

Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered theExpand

Cardiac fibroblast-derived microRNA passenger strand-enriched exosomes mediate cardiomyocyte hypertrophy.
In response to stress, the heart undergoes extensive cardiac remodeling that results in cardiac fibrosis and pathological growth of cardiomyocytes (hypertrophy), which contribute to heart failure.Expand

Circulating Long Noncoding RNA, LIPCAR, Predicts Survival in Patients With Heart Failure
Rationale: Long noncoding RNAs represent a novel class of molecules regulating gene expression. Long noncoding RNAs are present in body fluids, but their potential as biomarkers was neverExpand

LDL cholesterol upregulates synthesis of asymmetrical dimethylarginine in human endothelial cells: involvement of S-adenosylmethionine-dependent methyltransferases.
Asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADMA) is an endogenous nitric oxide synthase inhibitor. It is formed by protein arginine N-methyltransferases (PRMTs), which utilize S-adenosylmethionine as methylExpand

MicroRNA-24 Regulates Vascularity After Myocardial Infarction
Background— Myocardial infarction leads to cardiac remodeling and development of heart failure. Insufficient myocardial capillary density after myocardial infarction has been identified as a criticalExpand

Diagnostic and prognostic impact of six circulating microRNAs in acute coronary syndrome.
Circulating microRNAs may have diagnostic potential in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Previous studies, however, were based on low patient numbers and could not assess the relation of microRNAs toExpand

Circulating micrornas as potential biomarkers of aerobic exercise capacity
Purpose microRNAs (miRs) are crucial intracellular mediators of various biological processes, also affecting the cardiovascular system. Recently, it has been shown that miRs circulate extracellularlyExpand

Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase Uncoupling Impairs Endothelial Progenitor Cell Mobilization and Function in Diabetes
Uncoupling of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) resulting in superoxide anion (O2−) formation instead of nitric oxide (NO) causes diabetic endothelial dysfunction. eNOS regulatesExpand

Transforming Growth Factor-&bgr;–Induced Endothelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition Is Partly Mediated by MicroRNA-21
Objective—MicroRNAs are a class of small ribonucleotides regulating gene/protein targets by transcript degradation or translational inhibition. Transforming growth factor-&bgr; (TGF-&bgr;) isExpand
