    ..PKC-beta inhibitor RBX prevented chronic cardiac microvascular barrier dysfunction and improved endothelial cell-cell junctional function in high glucose states. ..
  3. Zhao X, Zhao L, Zheng Q, Su J, Guan H, Shang F, et al. Chymase induces profibrotic response via transforming growth factor-beta 1/Smad activation in rat cardiac fibroblasts. Mol Cell Biochem. 2008;310:159-66 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that chymase can promote CFs proliferation and collagen synthesis via TGF-beta 1/Smad pathway rather than angiotensin II, which is implicated in the process of MF. ..
  4. Nie X, Zhang G, Xu D, Sun X, Li Z, Li X, et al. The VP1-unique region of parvovirus B19 induces myocardial injury in mice. Scand J Infect Dis. 2010;42:121-8 pubmed publisher
    ..The changes in myocardial pathology and myocardial zymogram indicate that the VP1u protein of B19V causes myocardial injury, and may largely contribute to the pathogenesis of B19V-induced heart diseases. ..
  5. Chen J, Lu Z, Cheng D, Peng S, Wang H. Isolation and characterization of porcine amniotic fluid-derived multipotent stem cells. PLoS ONE. 2011;6:e19964 pubmed publisher
    ..These optimal features of pAF-MSCs provide an excellent alternative stem cell resource for potential cell therapy in regenerative medicine and transgenic animals...
  6. Zhuo X, Wu Y, Ni Y, Liu J, Gong M, Wang X, et al. Isoproterenol instigates cardiomyocyte apoptosis and heart failure via AMPK inactivation-mediated endoplasmic reticulum stress. Apoptosis. 2013;18:800-10 pubmed publisher
    ..We conclude that ISO, via AMPK inactivation, causes aberrant ER stress, cardiomyocyte injury, BNP release, apoptosis, and hence heart failure in vivo, all of which are inhibited by AMPK activation...
  7. Wang X, Wang W, Cao Y, Ma A. Ang II receptor expression and effect of Ang II receptor blockade in thyrotoxic rat myocardium. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2013;17:2619-27 pubmed
    ..To investigate the relationship between expression of the angiotensin II (Ang II) receptors and thyroid hormones in the myocardium of rats with thyrotoxicosis...
  8. Cai W, Yang X, Han S, Guo H, Zheng Z, Wang H, et al. Notch1 Pathway Protects against Burn-Induced Myocardial Injury by Repressing Reactive Oxygen Species Production through JAK2/STAT3 Signaling. Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2016;2016:5638943 pubmed publisher
    ..These results demonstrate that Notch signaling protects against burn-induced myocardial injury through JAK2/STAT3 signaling, which activates the expression of MnSOD and leads to decreased ROS levels. ..
  9. Wang H, Liu S, Liu S, Wei W, Zhou X, Lin F, et al. Enhanced expression and phosphorylation of Sirt7 activates smad2 and ERK signaling and promotes the cardiac fibrosis differentiation upon angiotensin-II stimulation. PLoS ONE. 2017;12:e0178530 pubmed publisher
    ..Our findings reveal a novel role of Sirt7 and its phosphorylation in the phenotypic conversion of CFs to MFs and might lead to the development of new therapeutic and prognostic tools for cardiac fibrosis. ..
