      Pedrozo Cibils, Zully; Torrealba, Natalia; Fernández, Carolina; Gatica, Damián; Toro, Barbra; Quiroga, Clara; Rodríguez, Andrea E.; Sánchez, Gina; Gillette, Thomas G.; Hill, Joseph A.; Donoso Laurent, Paulina; Lavandero González, Sergio (the European Society of Cardiology, 2013)
      Aims Chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) is a selective mechanism for the degradation of soluble cytosolic proteins bearing the sequence KFERQ. These proteins are targeted by chaperones and delivered to lysosomes where ...
    • Energy-preserving effects of IGF-1 antagonize starvation-induced cardiac autophagy 

      Troncoso, Rodrigo; Vicencio, José Miguel; Parra, Valentina; Nemchenko, Andriy; Kawashima, Yuki; Campo, Andrea del; Toro, Barbra; Battiprolu, Pavan K.; Aranguiz, Pablo; Chiong Lay, Mario; Yakar, Shoshana; Gillette, Thomas G.; Hill, Joseph A.; Abel, Evan Dale; LeRoith, Derek; Lavandero González, Sergio (European Society of Cardiology, 2012)
      Aims Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) is known to exert cardioprotective actions. However, it remains unknown if autophagy, a major adaptive response to nutritional stress, contributes to IGF-1-mediated cardioprotec ...
    • Glucose deprivation causes oxidative stress and stimulates aggresome formation and autophagy in cultured cardiac myocytes 

      Marambio, Paola; Toro, Barbra; Sanhueza, Carlos; Troncoso, Rodrigo; Parra, Valentina; Verdejo, Hugo; García Nannig, Lorena; Quiroga, Clara; Munafo, Daniela; Díaz Elizondo, Jessica; Bravo Sagua, Roberto; González Burgos, María Julieta; Díaz Araya, Guillermo; Pedrozo Cibils, Zully; Chiong Lay, Mario; Co (2010)
      Aggresomes are dynamic structures formed when the ubiquitin-proteasome system is overwhelmed with aggregation-prone proteins. In this process, small protein aggregates are actively transported towards the microtubule-organizing ...
    • Herp depletion protects from protein aggregation by up-regulating autophagy 

      Quiroga, Clara; Gatica, Damián; Paredes, Felipe; Bravo, Roberto; Troncoso, Rodrigo; Pedrozo Cibils, Zully; Rodríguez, Andrea E.; Toro, Barbra; Chiong Lay, Mario; Vicencio Bustamante, José Manuel; Hetz Flores, Claudio; Lavandero González, Sergio (Elsevier, 2013)
      Herp is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress inducible protein that participates in the ER-associated protein degradation (ERAD) pathway. However, the contribution of Herp to other protein degradation pathways like autophagy ...
    • Hyperosmotic stress activates p65/RelB NF kappa B in cultured cardiomyocytes with dichotomic actions on caspase activation and cell death 

      Eisner, Verónica; Quiroga, Clara; Criollo Céspedes, Alfredo; Eltit Ortega, José Miguel; Chiong Lay, Mario; Parra, Valentina; Hidalgo, Karla; Toro, Barbra; Díaz Araya, Guillermo; Lavandero González, Sergio (ELSEVIER, 2006-06-12)
      NF kappa B is a participant in the process whereby cells adapt to stress. We have evaluated the activation of NF kappa B pathway by hyperosmotic stress in cultured cardiomyocytes and its role in the activation of caspase ...
    • Hyperosmotic stress activates p65/RelB NFκB in cultured cardiomyocytes with dichotomic actions on caspase activation and cell death 

      Eisner, Verónica; Quiroga, Clara; Criollo Céspedes, Alfredo; Eltit Ortega, José Miguel; Chiong Lay, Mario; Parra, Valentina; Hidalgo, Karla; Toro, Barbra; Díaz Araya, Guillermo; Lavandero González, Sergio (2006)
      NFκB is a participant in the process whereby cells adapt to stress. We have evaluated the activation of NFκB pathway by hyperosmotic stress in cultured cardiomyocytes and its role in the activation of caspase and cell ...
    • An Inositol 1,4,5-Triphosphate (IP3)-IP3 Receptor Pathway Is Required for Insulin-Stimulated Glucose Transporter 4 Translocation and Glucose Uptake in Cardiomyocytes 

      Contreras Ferrat, Ariel Eduardo; Toro, Barbra; Bravo, R.; Parra Ortíz, María Valentina; Vásquez, C.; Ibarra, Cristián; Mears, David; Chiong Lay, Mario; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Klip, Amira; Lavandero González, Sergio (ENDOCRINE SOC, 2010-10)
      Intracellular calcium levels ([Ca2+](i)) and glucose uptake are central to cardiomyocyte physiology, yet connections between them have not been studied. We investigated whether insulin regulates [Ca2+](i) in cultured ...
    • Iron induces protection and necrosis in cultured cardiomyocytes: Role of reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide

      The process of muscle remodeling lies at the core of most cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac adaptation to pressure or volume overload is associated with a complex molecular change in cardiomyocytes which leads to anatomic ...
    • Regulatory volume decrease in cardiomyocytes is modulated by calcium influx and reactive oxygen species 

      Rojas Rivera, Andrés; Díaz Elizondo, Jessica; Parra Ortíz, María Valentina; Salas, Daniela; Contreras Ferrat, Ariel Eduardo; Toro, Barbra; Chiong Lay, Mario; Olea Azar, Claudio; Lavandero González, Sergio (ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2009-11-03)
