Rapid electrical stimulation induces early activation of kinase signal transduction pathways and apoptosis in adult rat ventricular myocytes.ionoptix2019-10-22T17:43:24-05:00
Rapid electrical stimulation induces early activation of kinase signal transduction pathways and apoptosis in adult rat ventricular myocytes. Kuramochi Y1, Guo X, Sawyer DB, Lim CC Abstract: Chronic tachycardia in patients and rapid pacing in animal models induce myocardial dysfunction and initiate a cascade of compensatory adaptations that are ultimately unsustainable, leading to ventricular enlargement and failure. The molecular pathogenesis during the early stages of tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy, however, remains unclear. [...]
Induction of heat shock response protects the heart against atrial fibrillation. Brundel BJ, Shiroshita-Takeshita A, Qi X, Yeh YH, Chartier D, van Gelder IC, Henning RH, Kampinga HH, Nattel S Abstract: There is evidence suggesting that heat shock proteins (HSPs) may protect against clinical atrial fibrillation (AF). We evaluated the effect of HSP induction in an in vitro atrial cell line (HL-1) model of tachycardia remodeling and in tachypaced isolated [...]
