The adult mammalian heart possesses little regenerative potential following injury. Fibrosis due to activation of cardiac… Expand Calcium (Ca) is a universal intracellular second messenger. In muscle, Ca is best known for its role in contractile activation… Expand BACKGROUND
Cardiac resynchronization reduces symptoms and improves left ventricular function in many patients with heart failure… Expand The mammalian heart has a very limited regenerative capacity and, hence, heals by scar formation. Recent reports suggest that… Expand A BSTRACT Background Previous studies have suggested that cardiac resynchronization achieved through atrialsynchronized… Expand BACKGROUND
Previous studies have suggested that cardiac resynchronization achieved through atrial-synchronized biventricular… Expand We sought to understand the relationship between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the mitochondrial permeability transition (MPT… Expand External load plays a critical role in determining muscle mass and its phenotype in cardiac myocytes. Cardiac myocytes have the… Expand Increasing evidence suggests that angiotensin II (Ang II) may act as a growth factor for the heart. However, direct effects of… Expand Hypertrophy is a fundamental adaptive process employed by postmitotic cardiac and skeletal muscle in response to mechanical load… Expand
