Effects of hydrogen peroxide on voltage-dependent K+ currents in human cardiac fibroblasts through protein kinase pathways

Bae H, Lee D, Kim YW, Choi J, Lee HJ, Kim SW, Kim T, Noh YH, Ko JH, Bang H, Lim I

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 May;20(3):315-324.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.3.315
Human cardiac fibroblasts (HCFs) have various voltage-dependent K+ channels (VDKCs) that can induce apoptosis. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) modulates VDKCs and induces oxidative stress, which is the main contributor to cardiac...
NecroX-5 exerts anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic effects via modulation of the TNFα/Dcn/TGFβ1/Smad2 pathway in hypoxia/reoxygenation-treated rat hearts

Thu VT, Kim HK, Long LT, Thuy TT, Huy NQ, Kim SH, Kim N, Ko KS, Rhee BD, Han J

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 May;20(3):305-314.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.3.305
Inflammatory and fibrotic responses are accelerated during the reperfusion period, and excessive fibrosis and inflammation contribute to cardiac malfunction. NecroX compounds have been shown to protect the liver and heart...
Klotho plays a critical role in clear cell renal cell carcinoma progression and clinical outcome

Kim JH, Hwang KH, Lkhagvadorj S, Jung JH, Chung HC, Park KS, Kong ID, Eom M, Cha SK

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 May;20(3):297-304.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.3.297
Klotho functions as a tumor suppressor predominantly expressed in renal tubular cells, the origin of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). Altered expression and/or activity of growth factor receptor have...
Voluntary stand-up physical activity enhances endurance exercise capacity in rats

Seo DY, Lee SR, Kwak HB, Seo KW, McGregor R, Yeo JY, Ko TH, Bolorerdene S, Kim N, Ko KS, Rhee BD, Han J

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 May;20(3):287-295.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.3.287
Involuntary physical activity induced by the avoidance of electrical shock leads to improved endurance exercise capacity in animals. However, it remains unknown whether voluntary stand-up physical activity (SPA) without forced...

Bak J, Kim HJ, Kim SY, Choi YS

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 May;20(3):279-286.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.3.279
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), derived from honeybee hives, is a bioactive compound with strong antioxidant activity. This study was designed to test the neuroprotective effect of CAPE in 3-nitropropionic...
Ellagic acid plays a protective role against UV-B-induced oxidative stress by up-regulating antioxidant components in human dermal fibroblasts
