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 ...
Role of vitamin D in the cardiac remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure
(International Journal of Cardiology, 2012-03-22) [Carta]
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. ...
