Stem cells on regenerative and reproductive science in domestic animals
(Veterinary Research Communications, 2018-02-01) [Resenha]
Stem cells are undifferentiated and self-renewable cells that present new possibilities for both regenerative medicine and the understanding of early mammalian development. Adult multipotent stem cells are already widely ...
Hypertension, augmented activity of matrix metalloproteinases-2 and -9 and angiogenic imbalance in hypertensive pregnancy are attenuated by doxycycline
(European Journal of Pharmacology, 2018-12-05) [Artigo]
Preeclampsia is manifested as maternal hypertension and fetal growth restriction. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are involved in hypertension and doxycycline reduces blood pressure by inhibition of MMPs. Moreover, excessive ...
Increases in placental nitric oxide, but not nitric oxide-mediated relaxation, underlie the improvement in placental efficiency and antihypertensive effects of hydrogen sulphide donor in hypertensive pregnancy
(Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology, 2018-11-01) [Artigo]
Dysregulation of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) producing enzymes has been related to hypertensive pregnancy, and H2S donor, sodium hydrosulphide (NaHS) exerts antihypertensive effects, modulates angiogenic factors production and ...
Autophagy-related 16-like 1gene polymorphism, risk factors for cardiovascular disease and associated carotid intima-media thickness in postmenopausal women
(Clinical Biochemistry, 2018-11-01) [Artigo]
Background: Early identification of asymptomatic postmenopausal women (PW), who are more predisposed to developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), is an important preventive strategy. Autophagy-related 16-like 1 (ATG16L1) ...
