Summary of "TGF-β improves myocardial function and prevents apoptosis induced by anoxia-reoxygenation, through the reduction of endoplasmic reticulum stress."

Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is known for its role in ventricular remodeling, inflammatory response, cell survival, and apoptosis. However, its role in improving myocardial function in rat hearts subjected to ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) and protecting against apoptosis induced in cardiomyocytes by anoxia-reoxygenation (A/R) has not been elucidated. This study investigated the protective effects and molecular mechanisms of TGF-β on myocardial function and cardiomyocyte apoptosis.

LncRNA UCA1 protects cardiomyocytes against hypoxia/reoxygenation induced apoptosis through inhibiting miR-143/MDM2/p53 axis.

lncUCA1 is abundantly expressed in the heart, indicating it may be important in maintaining normal myocardial function. However, the underlying mechanism of lncUCA1 in heart disease, particularly myoc...

Energy handling in renal tubular epithelial cells of the hamster, a native hibernator, under warm anoxia or reoxygenation.

Ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury causes several diseases, including acute kidney injury. Hibernating mammals survive periods of torpor with a marked drop in tissue perfusion, interspersed with period...

Effects of Modulation of Ion Channel Currents by Salidroside in H9C2 Myocardial Cells in Hypoxia and Reoxygenation.

Salidroside, a phenyl-propanoid glycoside isolated from the medicinal plant , has potent cardioprotective effects, especially against myocardial hypoxia and reoxygenation injury. However, the molecula...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by an azido group. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. The compound is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA during reverse transcription. It improves immunologic function, partially reverses the HIV-induced neurological dysfunction, and improves certain other clinical abnormalities associated with AIDS. Its principal toxic effect is dose-dependent suppression of bone marrow, resulting in anemia and leukopenia.

A netrin that binds the DCC RECEPTOR or UNC5 receptors, resulting respectively in axon attraction or repulsion. Its interaction with these receptors also prevents APOPTOSIS; it may function as a tumor suppressor protein.

A selective beta-1-adrenergic partial agonist. Because it is a partial agonist (DRUG PARTIAL AGONISM) it acts like an agonist when sympathetic activity is low and as an antagonist when sympathetic activity is high. It reduces MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA and improves ventricular function in patients with mild to moderate heart failure. In patients with severe heart failure it has been shown to produce benefits in systolic and diastolic function.

A conserved class of proteins that control APOPTOSIS in both VERTEBRATES and INVERTEBRATES. IAP proteins interact with and inhibit CASPASES, and they function as ANTI-APOPTOTIC PROTEINS. The protein class is defined by an approximately 80-amino acid motif called the baculoviral inhibitor of apoptosis repeat.

An acetanilide and piperazine derivative that functions as a SODIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER and prevents the release of enzymes during MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA. It is used in the treatment of ANGINA PECTORIS.
