Differential morphofunctional characteristics and gene expression in fast and slow muscle of rats with monocrotaline-induced heart failure
(Journal of Molecular Histology, 2011-06-01) [Artigo]
Heart failure (HF) is characterized by limited exercise tolerance, skeletal muscle atrophy, a shift toward fast muscle fiber, and myogenic regulatory factor (MRF) changes. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) also contribute to ...
Tobacco Smoke Induces Ventricular Remodeling Associated with an Increase in NADPH Oxidase Activity
(Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Recent studies have assessed the direct effects of smoking on cardiac remodeling and function. However, the mechanisms of these alterations remain unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate de role of ...
Diabetes mellitus activates fetal gene program and intensifies cardiac remodeling and oxidative stress in aged spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Cardiovascular Diabetology, 2013-10-17) [Artigo]
Background: The combination of systemic arterial hypertension and diabetes mellitus (DM) induces greater cardiac remodeling than either condition alone. However, this association has been poorly addressed in senescent rats. ...
Atrophic Cardiac Remodeling Induced by Taurine Deficiency in Wistar Rats
(PLOS ONE, 2012-07-23) [Artigo]
Introduction: Micronutrient deficiency is observed in heart failure patients. Taurine, for example, represents 50% of total free amino acids in the heart, and in vivo studies have linked taurine deficiency with ...
Serum thiamine concentration and oxidative stress as predictors of mortality in patients with septic shock
(Journal Of Critical Care, 2014-02-01) [Artigo]
Purpose: The purpose of the study is to determine the influence of serum thiamine, glutathione peroxidase (GPx) activity, and serum protein carbonyl concentrations in hospital mortality in patients with septic shock.Materials ...
