Volatile anesthetics evoke prolonged changes in the proteome of the left ventricule myocardium: defining a molecular basis of cardioprotection?

BACKGROUND Volatile anesthetics can alter cardiac gene and protein expression. Of those underlying molecular changes in gene and protein expression in the myocardium after exposure to volatile anesthetics that have been identified, some of them have been related to cardioprotection. METHODS We used two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry… CONTINUE READING
