Generation of reactive oxygen species and mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in adriamycin induced cardiotoxicity. Mitochondrial dysfunction is characterized by the accumulation of oxidized lipids, proteins and DNA, leading to disorganization of mitochondrial structure and systolic failure. The present study was aimed to evaluate the efficacy of(More)
The synergistic effects of nicorandil (KATP-channel opener) and amlodipine (calcium-channel blocker) on heart mitochondrial enzymes and the mitochondrial antioxidant defence system was examined on isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction in rats. The rats given isoproterenol (150 mg kg(-1) daily, i.p.) for two days showed significant changes in marker(More)
The synergistic protective effect of Nicorandil (KATP channel opener) and Amlodipine (calcium channel blocker) on heart tissue antioxidant defense system and lipid profile were examined on isoproterenol induced myocardial infarction in rats. The rats given isoproterenol (150 mg kg−1 daily, i.p.) for 2 days showed significant changes in antioxidant defense(More)
The synergistic protective effect of nicorandil (KATP channel opener) and amlodipine (calcium channel blocker) on mitochondrial respiration and mitochondrial lipid contents were examined on isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction in rats. The rats given isoproterenol (150 mg kg(-1) daily, i.p.) for 2 days showed significant changes in mitochondrial(More)
Increased oxidative stress and antioxidant deficit have been suggested to play a major role in adriamycin induced cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure due to multiple treatments with adriamycin. In this study the cardio protective effect of Centella asiatica on myocardial marker enzymes and antioxidant enzymes in adriamycin induced cardiomyopathy was(More)
The synergistic effect of nicorandil (K(ATP) channel opener) and amlodipine (calcium channel blocker) on lysosomal hydrolases in serum and heart was examined by determining the activity of beta-glucuronidase, beta-N-acetyl glucosaminidase, beta-galactosidase, cathepsin-D and acid phosphatase on isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction in rats. The rats(More)
The protective effect of L-arginine and L-lysine on lysosomal enzymes and membrane bound ATPases was examined on isoproterenol induced myocardial infarction in rats. Lysosomal enzymes play an important role in the inflammatory process. The rats given isoproterenol (150 mg kg−1 daily) intraperitoneally for 2 days showed significant changes in the marker(More)
