Investigate of Changes in Glucose Homeostasis by Modulating Endothelial Permeability
Altered permeability of the endothelial barrier in a variety of tissues has implications both in disease pathogenesis and treatment. Glucocorticoids are potent mediators of endothelial permeability and this forms the basis ...
Regulation of Cardiac Remodelling by Adiponectin in Response to Pressure Overload and Unloading: A Focus on the Extracellular Matrix
Cardiac remodelling, the reorganization of the heart which occurs in response to factors impacting its function, includes remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and hypertrophic cardiomyocyte growth. Pressure overload ...
Effect of Lipotoxicity on ER Stress, Autophagy and Apoptosis in Skeletal Muscle and Regulation by Adiponectin
Obesity is a key factor contributing to the “metabolic syndrome” which increases the risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and liver complications. In obese conditions, lipotoxicity is a serious concern as the ...
