Receptors-for-Advanced-Glycation-End-products (RAGE) activate pro-inflammatory programs mediated by carboxymethyllysine (CML) and high-mobility-group-box1 protein (HMGB1). The soluble isoform sRAGE neutralizes RAGE-ligands preventing cardiovascular complications in conditions associated with increased sympathetic activation like hypertension and diabetes. The effects of sympathetic modulation on RAGE/sRAGE-balance and end-organ damage in metabolic syndrome on top of hypertension remains unknown. We hypothes...

MicroRNA-486 Alleviates Hypoxia-Induced Damage in H9c2 Cells by Targeting NDRG2 to Inactivate JNK/C-Jun and NF-κB Signaling Pathways.

Acute myocardial infarction is a serious disease with high morbidity and mortality. microRNAs (miRNAs) have been proved to play an important role in modulating myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury. Hence, in this study, we constructed H9c2 cell model to elucidate the roles of microRNA-486 (miR-486) in preventing hypoxia-induced damage in H9c2 cells.

Use of objective evidence of myocardial ischemia to facilitate the diagnostic and prognostic distinction between type 2 myocardial infarction and myocardial injury.

First, describe how acute myocardial infarction criteria are used to diagnose type 1 (T1MI) and 2 (T2MI) myocardial infarction. Second, determine whether subjective or objective criteria are used for T2MI. Third, examine outcomes for T2MI based on the presence or absence of objective evidence of myocardial ischemia compared with myocardial injury.

Effects of propofol pretreatment on myocardial cell apoptosis and SERCA2 expression in rats with hepatic ischemia/reperfusion.

Pericardial application as a new route for implanting stem-cell cardiospheres to treat myocardial infarction.

Cardiospheres (CSps) are a promising new form of cardiac stem cells with advantage over other stem cells for myocardial regeneration, but direct implantation of CSps by conventional routes has been limited due to potential embolism. We have implanted CSps into the pericardial cavity and systematically demonstrated its efficacy regarding myocardial infarction. Stem cell potency and cell viability can be optimized in vitro prior to implantation by pre-conditioning CSps with pericardial fluid and hydrogel pack...

Apixaban attenuates ischemia-induced myocardial fibrosis by inhibition of Gq/PKC signaling.

It was previously found that patients with symptom of myocardial dysfunction had increased levels of thrombin. Apixaban is one of the novel oral anticoagulant drugs widely used in clinic. As the inhibitor of FXa (prothrombin), it inhibits prothrombin conversion into thrombin leading to thrombin deficiency in vivo. However, the effects of apixaban on myocardial fibrosis were still unclear, and the concomitant molecular mechanisms remain to be investigated. Here, we showed that myocardial fibrosis-bearing mic...
