Leptin attenuates cardiac apoptosis after chronic ischaemic injury.

Abstract

AIMS We have previously shown that activation of leptin signalling in the heart reduces cardiac morbidity and mortality after myocardial infarction (MI). In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that leptin signalling limits cardiac apoptosis after MI through activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT)-3 responsive anti… (More)
