Endoplasmic reticulum stress as a novel inducer of hypoxia inducible factor-1 activity: its role in the susceptibility to myocardial ischemia-reperfusion induced by chronic intermittent hypoxia.


BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent disease and a risk factor for myocardial infarction expansion in humans. Intermittent hypoxia (IH) is known to be the most important OSA feature in terms of cardiovascular morbi-mortality. Since ER stress and HIF-1 are known to be involved in cardiomyocyte life or death, this study investigates… (More)
