Postconditioning and intermittent bradykinin induced cardioprotection require cyclooxygenase activation and prostacyclin release during reperfusion


Postconditioning (PostC), obtained with brief intermittent cycles of ischemia alternating with reperfusion applied after the ischemic event, has been shown to reduce infarct size. Recently, we have shown that PostC triggering includes B2 receptor activation and its downstream pathway. Moreover, we showed that BK intermittent infusion induces a… (More)
