In the present study, rat cardiac myocytes were used as an in vitro ischemia/reperfusion injury model to delineate the role of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) 1 and JNK2 isoforms in ischemia/reoxygenation-induced apoptosis using an antisense approach. Exposure of rat cardiac myocytes to ischemia did not induce apoptosis as detected by staining with either… (More)
