Early changes in myocardial hypoxia: relations among mechanical function, pH, and intracellular redox states

Recent Advances in Studies on Cardiac Structure and Metabolism
J Scheuer, F Lai


When rat hearts were subjected to abrupt hypoxia the onset of NADH changes as measured by epicardial fluorescence and of depressed contractility occurred at similar times. Direct measurements of changes in tissue metabolism lagged behind changes in fluorescence and contractility. Calculated NAD:NADH ratios became reduced more rapidly and to a greater extent in the cytoplasm than in the mitochondria, but did not necessarily signal greater changes in total NADH. The detection of depressed contractility before a fall in intracellular pH or a rise in intracellular lactate casts doubt on the postulate that an increase in hydrogen ion is the primary cause of hypoxic myocardial failure.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia

Pontocerebellar hypoplasias are a group of neurodegenerative autosomal recessive disorders with prenatal onset, atrophy or hypoplasia of the cerebellum, hypoplasia of the ventral pons, microcephaly, variable neocortical atrophy and severe mental and motor impairments. Here is the latest research on pontocerebellar hypoplasia.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain. Disocver the latest research on single cell analysis of the gut-brain axis here.
