We sought to elucidate the effects of different concentrations of dietary selenium on calcium ion release, MLCK levels, and muscle contraction in the uterine smooth muscle of rats. The selenium (Se) content of blood and of uterine smooth muscle tissues was detected by fluorescence spectrophotometry. Ca2+ content was measured by atomic absorption(More)
Cardiomyocyte death is one major factor in the development of heart dysfunction, thus, understanding its mechanism may help with the prevention and treatment of this disease. Previously, we reported that anti-β1-adrenergic receptor autoantibodies (β1-AABs) decreased myocardial autophagy, but the role of these in cardiac function and cardiomyocyte death is(More)
BACKGROUND The role of human papilloma virus (HPV) in oral lichen planus (OLP) is controversial. OBJECTIVES The primary aim of the current study is to calculate the pooled risk estimates of HPV infection in OLP when compared with healthy controls. METHODS Bibliographic searches were conducted in three electronic databases. Articles on the association(More)
Chronic sustained stimulation of β-adrenoceptor is closely related to cardiac fibrosis which is bad for cardiac function. Growing evidence showed that the high prevalence of β1-adrenoceptor autoantibody (β1-AA) in the sera of patients with various types of cardiovascular diseases decreased cardiac function. In the current study, we demonstrated that β1-AA(More)
β1-Adrenoceptor autoantibodies (β1-AAs) affect the action potential duration (APD) in cardiomyocytes and are related to ventricular arrhythmias. The delayed rectifier potassium current (I K) plays a crucial role in APD, but the effects of β1-AAs on I K have not been completely illuminated. This work aimed to observe the effects of β1-AAs on I K and APD and(More)
β3-Adrenoceptors (β3-ARs) mediate a negative inotropic effect in human ventricular cardiomyocytes, which is opposite to that of β1- and β2-ARs. It has been previously demonstrated that autoantibodies against the β1/β2-AR exist in the sera of some patients with heart failure (HF) and these autoantibodies display agonist-like effects. Our aim in this study(More)
