Linking energy state to redox environment through mitochondrial redox circuits
(East Carolina University, 2016-11-16)
Mitochondria are the primary producers of intracellular H2O2, an oxidant signaling molecule that has gained attention for its role in normal physiological processes and disease etiologies such as skeletal muscle insulin ...
Targeting the mitochondrial inner membrane to improve bioenergetics in the diseased heart
(East Carolina University, 2014)
Cardiovascular diseases continue to exact unparalleled economic and humanitarian costs across the globe. Manifestations of cardiovascular diseases include acute coronary syndromes and heart failure, both of which are ...
The role of cardiac mitochondria in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury
(East Carolina University, 2012)
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) exerts economic and humanitarian costs that are unparalleled by any other disease. Of the many etiologies of CVD, myocardial infarction accounts for over 50% of the associated mortality and ...
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 ...
