UNLABELLED The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activates downstream mTOR phosphorylation to promote the progression of many different tumor types, thus making it a prime therapeutic target. However, the role of DEP domain-containing mTOR-interacting protein (DEPTOR), a natural mTOR inhibitor, remains unclear in this process. Here, it is reported(More)
The present study used an in vitro model of cold cardioplegia in isolated working rat hearts to evaluate the possible role of ethyl pyruvate (EP) in promoting cardiac function and preventing apoptosis. Two groups of rats were evaluated; the EP (2 mM EP; n=8) and control (n=8) groups. Isolated rat hearts were perfused with Krebs-Henseleit buffer (KHB) for 30(More)
Cystic tumor of the atrioventricular nodal region is a rare cardiac primary tumor that can cause heart blockage and sudden death. Antemortem diagnosis and successful excision of the atrioventricular nodal region are extremely rare. A 41-year-old woman who presented with dyspnea and palpitations is reported. Electrocardiography revealed third-degree(More)
