Relax (in) your way to say no to myocardial diseases: Relaxin-based therapy for cardiac repair and myocardial infarction: Relaxin, a reprodutive hormone,  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, 17/August/2018, 11.59 pm

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, […]

Revealing the unrevealed function of  the reproductive hormone Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in the heart: FSH,  a gonadotropin, and glycoprotein polypeptide hormone, inhibits DNA damage responses, induces telomerase expression, inhibits telomere shortening, and promotes cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via up-regulation of PNUTS, 4/August/2018, 9.50 am

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 the […]

Optimal levels of a reproductive hormone FSH(Follicle stimulating hormone) may keep cardiac diseases at bay: FSH-based cardiac rejuvenation therapy: FSH, a gonadotrophin and polypeptide hormone, suppresses tumor suppressor INK4a/p16 expression and inhibits dilated cardiomyopathy, via upregulation of its target gene, 3/August/2018, 1.25 pm

What we say: Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Optimal levels of a reproductive hormone FSH(Follicle stimulating hormone) may keep cardiac diseases at bay: […]

Unknown function of a known reproductive hormone: FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone) may find its utility in cardiac regenerative therapy: FSH, a gonadotropin and glycoprotein polypeptide hormone, increases the expression of ERBB2/Her2 and promotes dedifferentiation  of cardiomyocytes, via down-regulation of its target gene, 3/August/2018, 1.04 pm

Introduction: What they say A recent study from the Department of Biological Regulation, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel shows that “ERBB2 triggers mammalian heart regeneration by promoting cardiomyocyte dedifferentiation and proliferation.” This study was […]
