Molecular therapy for heart regeneration and repair: Carvidiol (trade name: Coreg), used to treat congestive heart failure and high blood pressure, increases Agrin expression, activates Yap and ERK-mediated signaling,  replaces scar tissue with functional cardiomyocytes, and promotes cardiomyocyte regeneration and repair after myocardial infarction, via up regulation of its target gene, 24/December/2017, 10.38 am

Introduction: What they say: A recent study from Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel; Department of Biomedical Engineering, Duke University, […]

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy for cardiac diseases: Mesenchymal stem cell therapy inhibits DNA damage responses, induces telomerase expression, inhibits telomere shortening, and promotes cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via up-regulation of PNUTS, 22/December/2018, 9.38 pm

What they say:  A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published, in the 7 March  2013 issue of of […]
