Transcription activator protein 1 (AP-1) mediates NO-induced apoptosis of adult cardiomyocytes.


Release of nitric oxide (NO) during inflammation can induce apoptosis in the heart. Here we analyzed the involvement of members of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) family and their downstream target, the transcription factor AP-1, in induction of apoptosis by NO in isolated adult cardiomyocytes of rat. The NO-donor (+/-)-S-nitroso-N… (More)
