Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury Protection by Mesenchymal Stem Cell Derived Antioxidant Capacity
(Mary Ann Liebert, 2013-09)
Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) transplantation after ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury reduces infarct size and improves cardiac function. We used mouse ventricular myocytes (VMs) in an in vitro model of I/R to determine the ...
Mitochondrial Dysfunction Causing Cardiac Sodium Channel Downregulation in Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy is associated with cardiac Na(+) channel downregulation that may contribute to arrhythmias. Previously, we have shown that elevated intracellular NADH causes a decrease in cardiac Na(+) current (I(Na)) ...
SLIT3–ROBO4 activation promotes vascular network formation in human engineered tissue and angiogenesis in vivo
(Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology, 2013-11-01)
Successful implantation and long-term survival of engineered tissue grafts hinges on adequate vascularization of the implant. Endothelial cells are essential for patterning vascular structures, but they require supportive ...
Coarctation of the aorta associated with DandyeWalker variant
This article reports a rare case of coarctation of the aorta associated with DandyeWalker variant in a 17-year-old girl. Differential diagnoses of coarctation of the aorta and DandyeWalker variant are extensively discussed. ...
Mitochondrial Respiration Regulates Adipogenic Differentiation of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult multipotent stem cells which can be isolated from bone marrow, adipose tissue as well as other tissues and have the capacity to differentiate into a variety of mesenchymal cell ...
The Science Mystique
The Science Mystique can impinge on the rigor of science by conveying a false sense of certainty.
An introduction to the German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk and his version of "TED talks" on selected philosophers such as Marx, Sartre and Plato.
A Parched Future: Global Land and Water Grabbing
Land grabbing refers to the large-scale acquisition of comparatively inexpensive agricultural land in foreign countries by foreign governments or corporations. In most cases, the acquired land is located in under-developed ...
Tapping Into the Creative Potential of Our Elders
Three Seconds: Poems, Cubes, and the Brain
Temporal order can be assessed in a rather straightforward experimental manner. Research subjects can be provided sequential auditory clicks, one to each ear. If the clicks are one second apart, nearly all participants can ...
