Background: Heart transplant is life-saving for children with end-stage congenital heart disease or acquired heart failure. Critical illness following transplantation can include acute kidney injury (AKI). There is little data on the epidemiology of, risk factors for, or impact on outcomes of...
Calreticulin, a Ca2+ binding chaperone of the endoplasmic reticulum, is also highly expressed in the embryonic heart, and knockout of the calreticulin gene is lethal during embryogenesis because of impaired cardiac development. The protein is down-regulated after birth, and elevated expression of...
Divine Corporeality: Remembering Yhwh's Different Body Parts in Late Persian/Early Hellenistic Yehud/JudahDownload
In an effort to contribute to the rich and ongoing conversation on divine anthropomorphism(s), this work examines references to Yhwh’s various body parts in Late Persian/Early Hellenistic period texts of (what is now known in scholarly circles as) the Hebrew Bible from the perspective of social...
Intracellular regulation of matrix metalloproteinase-2 activity: the roles of caveolin-1 and troponin I phosphorylationDownload
Matrix metalloproteinase‐2 (MMP‐2) was recently revealed to have targets and actions within the cardiac myocyte. In ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, MMP‐2 is activated and degrades troponin I (TnI) and α‐actinin. The regulation of intracellular MMP‐2 activity is relatively unknown and is thus...
Technological advances for treatment of congenital heart disease (CHD) have led to decreases in mortality over the past thirty years. Persistent morbidity into adolescence and adulthood necessitates regular medical follow-up and the influence of ongoing physical health issues on the teens...
The heart requires an uninterrupted supply of fuels to sustain its physiological function. Fatty acids are the predominant substrates and endogenous triglyceride turnover contributes significantly to fatty acid oxidation. Lipins are cytosolic, bifunctional enzymes involved in both glycerolipid...
Cardiac Fatty acids β-oxidation (FAO) markedly increases during maturation and become the major source of energy for the adult heart. However, excessive rates of FAO can compromise cardiac function in obesity, diabetes, and heart failure. Lysine acetylation has recently been identified as a...
Heart disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the world with a growing prevalence in a variety of manifestations. Many of the events that occur in the heart during the progression of disease have been explored to identify a causative mechanism to develop effective treatments and...
The traditional PI3K pathway relies on agonist mediated stimulation of PI3Kα through RTKs and PI3Kγ through GPCRs, which stimulate downstream enzymes such as Akt. This pathway has been found to be important in cardiomyocytes and cardiofibroblasts for regulating cardiac morphology and function....
