Involvement of exogenous H2S in recovery of cardioprotection from ischemic post-conditioning via increase of autophagy in the aged hearts.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which is a member of the gasotransmitter family, plays an important physiological and pathological role in cardiovascular system. Ischemic post-conditioning (PC) provides myocardial protective effect in the young hearts but not in the aged hearts. Exogenous H2S restores PC-induced cardioprotection by inhibition of… (More)
