Adenosine and opioid receptors do not trigger the cardioprotective effect of mild hypothermia.


Mild hypothermia (32°C-34°C) exerts a potent cardioprotection in animal models of myocardial infarction. Recently, it has been proposed that this beneficial effect is related to survival signaling. We, therefore, hypothesized that the well-known cardioprotective pathways dependent on adenosine and/or opioid receptors could be the trigger of hypothermia… (More)
