Aims Targeted point mutants of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) are potential optimal agents for angiogenesis therapy. Data are limited regarding the angiogenic response of HIF-1α mutants. We aimed to compare the angiogenic effect of wild-type and mutant HIF-1α by contrast ultrasound...
Aims Previously, we showed an enhanced excitatory ( N -methyl d -aspartate receptor-NR 1 ) and decreased inhibitory neuronal nitric oxide (NO) synthase (nNOS) influence within the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of rats with chronic heart failure (CHF). Although NR 1 and nNOS are normally linked,...
Aims Elastin is the primary component of elastic fibres in arteries, which contribute significantly to the structural integrity of the wall. Fibrillin-1 is a microfibrillar glycoprotein that appears to stabilize elastic fibres mechanically and thereby to delay a fatigue-induced loss of function...
Aims Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia, and effective treatment of AF still remains an unmet medical need. AF is associated with atrial conduction disturbances caused by electrical and/or structural remodelling. We hypothesized that AF suppresses expression...
Aims Omentin-1 (also known as intelectin-1) is a recently identified visceral adipose tissue-derived cytokine that is inversely related to obesity. Our previous study showed that omentin-1 inhibits osteoblastic differentiation of calcifying vascular smooth muscle cells (CVSMCs) in vitro . This...
Aims Intermedin (IMD) is a novel member of the calcitonin gene-related peptide family, which acts via calcitonin receptor-like receptors (CLRs), mediating activation of cAMP signalling. The main objective of the present study was to analyse the molecular mechanisms of the differential effects of...
