A new role for sterol regulatory element binding protein 1 transcription factors in the regulation of muscle mass and muscle cell differentiation

juillet 2015|

The role of the transcription factors sterol regulatory element binding protein 1a (SREBP-1a) and SREBP-1c in the regulation of cholesterol [...]

Persistent organic pollutant exposure leads to insulin resistance syndrome

juillet 2015|

Recently, epidemiological studies have associated the prevalence of type 2 diabetes with elevated body burdens of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). [...]

Moderate intake of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in humans exerts “antioxidant” effects

juillet 2015|

Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are highly unsaturated and reported to favour lipid peroxidation after grams daily intake, then masking their [...]

Cyclophilin D and myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury: A fresh perspective

juillet 2015|

Reperfusion is characterized by a deregulation of ion homeostasis and generation of reactive oxygen species that enhance the ischemia-related tissue [...]

Protective effect of the inhibition of the mitochondria-reticulum interactions during hypoxia-reoxygenation in cardiomyocytes

juillet 2015|

Recent studies indicate that calcium microdomains at the mitochondria-reticulum interface exist in the heart and are involved in the excitation-contraction [...]

Genome-wide analysis distinguishes hyperglycemia regulated epigenetic signatures of primary vascular cells

juillet 2015|

Hyperglycemia has been shown to affect histone post-translational modifications and modify DNA methylation patterns in endothelial cells. These epigenetic changes [...]

Protective effect of cyclosporine on left ventricular remodeling after reperfused myocardial infarction.

juillet 2015|

This study examined the effect of a single dose of cyclosporine administered at the time of reperfusion on left ventricular [...]

Noninvasive measurement of carotid extra-media thickness

juillet 2015|

Associations with cardiovascular risk factors and intima-media thickness. We sought to develop a noninvasive ultrasonography technique to quantify the thickness [...]

Cyclosporine A attenuates lethal reperfusion injury in acute myocardial infarction patients.

juillet 2015|

Experimental evidence indicates that the opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) is a crucial event in cardiomyocyte death [...]

Ischemic postconditioning protects the human heart

juillet 2015|

The description of ischemic postconditioning in the dog heart in 2003 by the group of Vinten-Johanssen eventually proved the existence [...]
