Neuroendocrine and oxidoreductive mechanisms of stress-induced cardiovascular diseases
(Physiological Research, 2008)
The review concerns a number of basic molecular pathways that play a crucial role in perception, transmission, and modulation of the stress signals, and mediate the adaptation of the vital processes in the cardiovascular ...
Regulation of Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase and High-Density Lipoprotein Quality by Estradiol in Cardiovascular Pathology
(Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Therapeutics, 2014)
Estrogens have been recognized, in the last 3 decades, as important hormones in direct and indirect modulation of vascular health. In addition to their direct benefit on cardiovascular health, the presence of esterified ...
A Review of the Cardiovascular and Anti-Atherogenic Effects of Ghrelin
(Current Pharmaceutical Design, 2013)
Ghrelin is a peptide hormone produced mainly in the stomach that has widespread tissue distribution and diverse hormonal, metabolic and cardiovascular activities. The circulating ghrelin concentration increases during ...
Effects of obesity and estradiol on Na+/K+-ATPase and their relevance to cardiovascular diseases
(Journal of Endocrinology, 2013)
Obesity is associated with aberrant sodium/potassium-ATPase (Na+/K+-ATPase) activity, apparently linked to hyperglycemic hyperinsulinemia, which may repress or inactivate the enzyme. The reduction of Na+/K+-ATPase activity ...
