Dual modulation of cell survival and cell death by beta(2)-adrenergic signaling in adult mouse cardiac myocytes.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2001-02-13)
The goal of this study was to determine whether beta(1)-adrenergic receptor (AR) and beta(2)-AR differ in regulating cardiomyocyte survival and apoptosis and, if so, to explore underlying mechanisms. One potential mechanism ...
Preservation of myocardial beta-adrenergic receptor signaling delays the development of heart failure after myocardial infarction.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2000-05-09)
When the heart fails, there is often a constellation of biochemical alterations of the beta-adrenergic receptor (betaAR) signaling system, leading to the loss of cardiac inotropic reserve. betaAR down-regulation and functional ...
Level of beta-adrenergic receptor kinase 1 inhibition determines degree of cardiac dysfunction after chronic pressure overload-induced heart failure.
BACKGROUND: Heart failure is characterized by abnormalities in beta-adrenergic receptor (betaAR) signaling, including increased level of myocardial betaAR kinase 1 (betaARK1). Our previous studies have shown that inhibition ...
