    • Autophagy mediates tumor necrosis factor-alpha-induced phenotype switching in vascular smooth muscle A7r5 cell line 

      García Miguel, Marina; Riquelme, Jaime A.; Norambuena Soto, Ignacio; Morales, Pablo E.; Sanhueza Olivares, Fernanda; Núñez Soto, Constanza Belén; Mondaca Ruff, David; Cancino Arenas, Nicole; San Martín, Alejandra; Chiong Lay, Mario (Public library science, 2018-05-11)
      Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) dedifferentiation from a contractile to a synthetic phenotype contributes to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerotic tissue has a chronic inflammatory component with high levels of tumor necrosis ...
    • New Molecular Insights of Insulin in Diabetic Cardiomyopathy 

      Westermeier, Francisco; Riquelme, Jaime A.; Pavez, Mario; Garrido, Valeria; Díaz, Ariel; Verdejo, Hugo E.; Castro, Pablo F.; García Nannig, Lorena; Lavandero González, Sergio (Frontiers Media S.A., 2016-04)
      Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a highly prevalent disease worldwide. Cardiovascular disorders generated as a consequence of T2DM are a major cause of death related to this disease. Diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is ...
    • Regulation of Cardiac Autophagy by Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 

      Troncoso, Rodrigo; Díaz Elizondo, Jessica; Espinoza, Sandra P.; Navarro Márquez, Mario F.; Oyarzún, Alejandra P.; Riquelme, Jaime A.; García Carvajal, Ivonne; Díaz Araya, Guillermo; García Nannig, Lorena; Hill, Joseph A.; Lavandero González, Sergio (2013-07)
      Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) signaling is a key pathway in the control of cell growth and survival. Three critical nodes in the IGF-1 signaling pathway have been described in cardiomyocytes: protein kinase ...
    • The role of PI3K alpha isoform in cardioprotection 

      Rossello, Xavier; Riquelme, Jaime A.; He, Zhenhe; Taferner, Stasa; Vanhaesebroeck, Bart; Davidson, Sean M.; Yellon, Derek M. (Springer, 2017)
      Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) limits myocardial infarct size through the activation of the PI3K-Akt signal cascade; however, little is known about the roles of individual PI3K isoforms in cardioprotection. We aimed, ...
    • Therapeutic targeting of autophagy in myocardial infarction and heart failure 

      Riquelme, Jaime A.; Chávez, Myra N.; Mondaca Ruff, David; Bustamante, Mario; Vicencio, José M.; Quest, Andrew F. G.; Lavandero González, Sergio (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
      Introduction: Myocardial infarction (MI) is the leading cause of death. When MI is not lethal, heart failure (HF) is a major consequence with high prevalence and poor prognosis. The targeting of autophagy represents a ...
