  1. pmc Juvenile exposure to anthracyclines impairs cardiac progenitor cell function and vascularization resulting in greater susceptibility to stress-induced myocardial injury in adult mice
    Chengqun Huang
    San Diego State University, BioScience Center and Department of Biology, CA, USA
    Circulation 121:675-83. 2010
    ..To date, very little is known about the mechanism of this late-onset cardiotoxicity...
  2. pmc Mitochondria and mitophagy: the yin and yang of cell death control
    Dieter A Kubli
    Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA
    Circ Res 111:1208-21. 2012
    ..Herein, we discuss the importance of mitochondria and mitophagy in cardiovascular health and disease and provide a review of our current understanding of how these processes are regulated...
  3. pmc Bnip3 as a dual regulator of mitochondrial turnover and cell death in the myocardium
    Asa B Gustafsson
    Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive MC 0758, La Jolla, CA 92093 0758, USA
    Pediatr Cardiol 32:267-74. 2011
    ..Recent studies suggest that Bnip3 might have a dual function in the myocardium, where it regulates both mitochondrial turnover via autophagy and cell death and that these are two separate processes activated by Bnip3...
  4. pmc Mitochondrial autophagy by Bnip3 involves Drp1-mediated mitochondrial fission and recruitment of Parkin in cardiac myocytes
    Youngil Lee
    Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0758, USA
    Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 301:H1924-31. 2011
    ..Thus our data suggest that induction of autophagy in response to Bnip3 is a protective response activated by the cell that involves Drp1-mediated mitochondrial fission and recruitment of Parkin...
