Reperfusion injury induces apoptosis in rabbit cardiomyocytes.

Abstract

The most effective way to limit myocardial ischemic necrosis is reperfusion, but reperfusion itself may result in tissue injury, which has been difficult to separate from ischemic injury. This report identifies elements of apoptosis (programmed cell death) in myocytes as a response to reperfusion but not ischemia. The hallmark of apoptosis, nucleosomal… (More)
