The purpose of this study was to test our hypothesis that red palm oil (RPO) intake may affect abnormalities of myocardial connexin-43 (Cx43) and protein kinase Cε (PKCε) signaling, and consequently(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypertension-induced myocardial remodeling is known to be associated with increased risk for malignant arrhythmias and alterations in electrical coupling protein, connexin-43 (Cx43), may be(More)
Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a life-threatening arrhythmia, whose occurrence precedes the development of myocardial arrhythmogenic substrate resulting from either chronic or acute(More)
Cardioprotective compounds such as atorvastatin, melatonin, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) exhibit antiarrhythmic potential in clinical and/or experimental conditions but(More)
We aimed to study the impact of altered thyroid status on myocardial expression of electrical coupling protein connexin-43 (Cx43), the susceptibility of rats to ventricular fibrillation (VF) and the(More)
