OBJECTIVE This study aimed to examine the effects of adenovirus-mediated expression of p35, a baculovirus gene, on apoptosis induced by hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) in cardiomyocytes. METHODS Neonatal rat cardiomyocytes were infected with recombinant adenoviral vectors expressing p35 (Ad2/CMVp35) or no transgene (Ad2/CMVEV) and were then subjected to H/R.(More)
