The GTN patch: a simple and effective new approach to cardioprotection?
There remains a significant un-met need to reduce the extent of myocardial injury caused by ischaemia and reperfusion injury in patients experiencing an ST-elevation MI. Although nitric oxide is central to many cardioprotective ...
Neutrophil Microvesicles from Healthy Control and Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Prevent the Inflammatory Activation of Macrophages.
Microvesicles (MVs) are emerging as a novel means to enact cell-to-cell communication in inflammation. Here, we aimed to ascertain the ability of neutrophil-derived MVs to modulate target cell behaviour, the focus being ...
Discovery and functional prioritization of Parkinson's disease candidate genes from large-scale whole exome sequencing.
BACKGROUND: Whole-exome sequencing (WES) has been successful in identifying genes that cause familial Parkinson's disease (PD). However, until now this approach has not been deployed to study large cohorts of unrelated ...
Angiotensin II Promotes KV7.4 Channels Degradation Through Reduced Interaction With HSP90 (Heat Shock Protein 90).
Voltage-gated Kv7.4 channels have been implicated in vascular smooth muscle cells' activity because they modulate basal arterial contractility, mediate responses to endogenous vasorelaxants, and are downregulated in several ...
Differentiation and Application of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells.
Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) play a role in the development of vascular disease, for example, neointimal formation, arterial aneurysm, and Marfan syndrome caused by genetic mutations in VSMCs, but little is known ...
