Attenuation of fatty acid-induced apoptosis by low-dose alcohol in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes.

Abstract

Moderate alcohol consumption has been shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality from coronary heart disease. Ethanol elicits its protective effects via mechanisms that include activation of protein kinases linked to growth and survival. Our results in isolated neonatal rat cardiomyocytes demonstrate that repeated short-term, low-dose exposure to ethanol… (More)
