macrophagy autophagy

Kimberley M Mellor, Upasna Varma, David I Stapleton, Lea M D Delbridge
Disturbed systemic glycemic and insulinemic status elicits cardiomyocyte metabolic stress and altered glucose handling. In diabetes, pathological myocardial glycogen accumulation occurs. Recently, evidence of a specific myocardial autophagic degradation pathway for glycogen ("glycophagy") has been reported, differentiated from the more well-characterized protein "macrophagy" pathway. The goal of this study was to identify potential mechanisms involved in cardiac glycogen accumulation, glycophagy, and macrophagy regulation using cultured neonatal rat ventricular myocytes (NRVMs)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Huntington's disease is a neurodegenerative process associated with mitochondrial alterations. Inhibitors of the electron-transport channel complex II, such as 3-nitropropionic acid (3NP), are used to study the molecular and cellular pathways involved in this disease. We studied the effect of 3NP on mitochondrial morphology and its involvement in macrophagy. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: Pharmacological and biochemical methods were used to characterize the effects of 3NP on autophagy and mitochondrial morphology...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
