AIMS Chronic depletion of myocardial glutathione (GSH) may play a role in cardiac remodelling and dysfunction. This study examined the relationship between chronic GSH depletion and cardiac failure induced by pressure overload in mice lacking the modifier subunit (GCLM) of glutamate-cysteine ligase, the rate-limiting enzyme for GSH synthesis. In addition,… (More)
BACKGROUND Sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation aggravated endothelial vasomotor dysfunction in infarct-related coronary arteries. METHODS AND RESULTS This study examined the effect of SES implantation on the duration of reperfusion-induced endothelial vasomotor dysfunction in infarct-related coronary arteries and on postinfarct left ventricular… (More)
AIMS Phospholipase A2 receptor 1 (PLA2R) has multiple biological functions other than functioning as a receptor for secretory PLA2s. Two nonsynonymous polymorphisms in the C-type lectin-like domains (CTLD) 1 of PLA2R gene have been associated with idiopathic membranous nephropathy. This study examined whether the same PLA2R polymorphisms may alter functions… (More)
Subject codes:  Other myocardial biology  Genetically altered mice,  Ischemic biology-basic studies In November 2013, the average time from submission to first decision for all original research papers submitted to Circulation Research was 14.6 days. ABSTRACT Rationale: Recent evidence indicates that the biological effects of secretory… (More)
— Recently, several kinds of values have been employed with respect to the diversification of individuality in the market. Some of these values are currently supported by only a few people, who are referred to as a " minority group ". However, there is the possibility that such groups will grow into majority groups with changes in historical background or… (More)
An inclined periodic soliton solution can be expressed as imbricate series of rational soliton solutions. A convenient form of the imbrication is given by using the bilin-ear form. A lattice soliton solution which propagaties in any direction can be also constructed by doubly imbricating rational solitons.
