  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2020 Jan;24(1):81-88.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2020.24.1.81
Regulator of calcineurin 1 (RCAN1) can be induced by an intracellular calcium increase and oxidative stress, which are characteristic features of temporal lobe epilepsy. Thus, we investigated the spatiotemporal expression...
Quercetin-induced apoptosis ameliorates vascular smooth muscle cell senescence through AMP-activated protein kinase signaling pathway

Kim SG, Sung JY, Kim JR, Choi HC

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2020 Jan;24(1):69-79.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2020.24.1.69
Aging is one of the risk factors for the development of cardiovascular diseases. During the progression of cellular senescence, cells enter a state of irreversible growth arrest and display resistance...
