Cardioprotective mechanisms targeting thiol redox homeostasis and mitochondrial bioenergetics
(East Carolina University, 2016-05-03)
Coronary heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States, totaled mostly by deaths associated with myocardial infarction and fatal ventricular arrhythmias. The inability to predict the occurrence of these ...
Why Does Exercise â€œTriggerâ€? Adaptive Protective Responses in the Heart?
Numerous epidemiological studies suggest that individuals who exercise have decreased cardiac morbidity and mortality. Pre-clinical studies in animal models also find clear cardioprotective phenotypes in animals that ...
The â€œGoldilocks Zoneâ€? from a redox perspectiveâ€”Adaptive vs. deleterious responses to oxidative stress in striated muscle
Consequences of oxidative stress may be beneficial or detrimental in physiological systems. An organ system's position on the “hormetic curve” is governed by the source and temporality of reactive oxygen species (ROS) ...
