Intracoronary adenovirus-mediated delivery and overexpression of the beta(2)-adrenergic receptor in the heart : prospects for molecular ventricular assistance.
BACKGROUND: Genetic modulation of ventricular function may offer a novel therapeutic strategy for patients with congestive heart failure. Myocardial overexpression of beta(2)-adrenergic receptors (beta(2)ARs) has been shown ...
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 ...
Hybrid transgenic mice reveal in vivo specificity of G protein-coupled receptor kinases in the heart.
(Circ Res, 2000-01-07)
G protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) phosphorylate activated G protein-coupled receptors, including alpha(1B)-adrenergic receptors (ARs), resulting in desensitization. In vivo analysis of GRK substrate selectivity has ...
Catecholamines, cardiac beta-adrenergic receptors, and heart failure.
