Molecular therapy for Cardiomyopathy: Metoprolol (brand name:lopressor), used to treat high blood pressure and angina, decreases the expression of Sox6, restores the balance between slow- and fast-twitch myofiber proteins and alleviates Cardiomyopathy via upregulation of its target gene, 23/December/2018,  11.04 pm

Introduction: What they say A recent study from the Department of Cardiology, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA; and Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA shows that “Trbp regulates heart […]
