  • ischemia
  • PF is an ultrafiltrate of plasma, 18 but it also reflects the composition of cardiac interstitium, at least in cardiac ischemia, 19 and the production and release of macromolecules (including growth factors) in normal and diseased myocardium. (ahajournals.org)

  • We provide direct evidence for the first time of in vivo myocyte division in 6-wk-old chicken hearts. (physiology.org)
  • To test the role of Smad5 specifically in cardiac myocytes in vivo, and to circumvent embryonic lethality and extrinsic defects seen in Smad5-null mice, we generated a cardiac-specific deletion of Smad5 using the Cre/lox system. (ahajournals.org)
  • sarcomeric
  • In conclusion, mice with cardiac-specific deletion of Smad5 develop dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure as a result of sarcomeric disarray and myocyte disruption. (ahajournals.org)
  • In cardiac muscle cells, PKCε regulates muscle contraction through its actions at sarcomeric proteins, and PKCε modulates cardiac cell metabolism through its actions at mitochondria. (wikipedia.org)
  • myocardium
  • 22 However, whether human PF contains growth factors and peptides specifically synthesized within the myocardium and whether its characteristics reflect cardiac adaptation to chronic overload have not yet been established. (ahajournals.org)
  • Moreover, peak concentrations of T cells in the myocardium during days 7-14 play important roles in both viral clearance and immune mediated cardiac damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • proteins
  • For characterization of the growth pattern of cardiac myocytes during posthatching development, cardiac myocytes were enzymatically isolated from the ventricles of 1-, 15-, 29-, and 42-day-old chickens for measurement of myocyte nucleation, length, width, volume, and number, and for immunolabeling of cytoskeletal proteins. (physiology.org)
  • Protein
  • Myostatin (also known as growth differentiation factor 8, abbreviated GDF-8) is a myokine, a protein produced and released by myocytes that acts on muscle cells' autocrine function to inhibit myogenesis: muscle cell growth and differentiation. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • An automated method measuring cardiac myocyte surface area was described and used as an index of cell growth. (cdc.gov)
  • Average cell volume increased more than 400%, and myocytes lengthened 125%, but cell width only increased 53% during this period. (physiology.org)
  • In order to evaluate their presence and biological activity, we studied the effect of PF and serum obtained from patients undergoing cardiac surgery on the phenotype and cell growth of isolated adult rat myocytes. (ahajournals.org)
  • A myocyte (also known as a muscle cell) is the type of cell found in muscle tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cell membrane of a myocyte has several specialized regions, which may include the intercalated disk and the transverse tubular system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Internalization of the virus into myocytes occurs by binding to coxsackievirus-adenovirus receptors (CAR) located in tight junctions on cell membranes. (wikipedia.org)
