Obesity induces upregulation of genes involved in myocardial Ca2+ handling
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2008-07-01) [Artigo]
Obesity is a complex multifactorial disorder that is often associated with cardiovascular diseases. Research on experimental models has suggested that cardiac dysfunction in obesity might be related to alterations in ...
Food restriction impairs myocardial inotropic response to calcium and beta-adrenergic stimulation in spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Nutrition Research, 2008-10-01) [Artigo]
Although long-term food restriction (FR) has been shown to induce cardiac remodeling and dysfunction, there arc few data on the effects of FR on pressure-overloaded hearts. The aim of this study was to examine the effects ...
Obesity Preserves Myocardial Function During Blockade of the Glycolytic Pathway
(Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia, 2014-10-01) [Artigo]
Background: Obesity is defined by excessive accumulation of body fat relative to lean tissue. Studies during the last few years indicate that cardiac function in obese animals may be preserved, increased or diminished. ...
Severe food restriction induces myocardial dysfunction related to SERCA2 activity
(Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2009-09-01) [Artigo]
Previous studies have shown that food restriction promotes myocardial dysfunction in rats. However, the molecular mechanisms that are responsible are unclear. We investigated the role of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase ...
