    • Anabolic Androgenic Steroids and Intracellular Calcium Signaling: A Mini Review on Mechanisms and Physiological Implications 

      Vicencio Bustamante, José Manuel; Estrada, M.; Galvis, D.; Bravo, R.; Contreras Ferrat, Ariel Eduardo; Rotter, D.; Szabadkai, G.; Hill, Joseph A.; Rothermel, B. A.; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Lavandero González, Sergio (BENTHAM SCIENCE PUBL LTD, 2011-05)
      Increasing evidence suggests that nongenomic effects of testosterone and anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) operate concertedly with genomic effects. Classically, these responses have been viewed as separate and independent ...
    • Changes in mitochondrial dynamics during ceramide-induced cardiomyocyte early apoptosis 

      Parra Ortíz, María Valentina; Eisner, Verónica; Chiong Lay, Mario; Criollo Céspedes, Alfredo; Moraga, Francisco; García, Alejandra; Haertel, Steffen; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Zorzano, Antonio; Hidalgo Tapia, María Cecilia; Lavandero González, Sergio (ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2008-01-15)
      Aims In cells, mitochondria are organized as a network of interconnected organelles that fluctuate between fission and fusion events (mitochondrial dynamics). This process is associated with cell death. We investigated ...
    • HERPUD1 protects against oxidative stress-induced apoptosis through downregulation of the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor 

      Paredes, Felipe; Parra, Valentina; Torrealba, Natalia; Navarro Márquez, Mario F.; Gatica, Damián; Bravo Sagua, Roberto; Troncoso, Rodrigo; Pennanen, Christian; Quiroga, Clara; Chiong Lay, Mario; Caesar, Christa; Taylor, W. Robert; Molgó, Jordi; San Martín, Alejandra; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Lavandero González, Sergio (Elsevier, 2016)
      Homocysteine-inducible, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-inducible, ubiquitin-like domain member 1 (HERPUD1), an ER resident protein, is upregulated in response to ER stress and Ca2(+) homeostasis deregulation. HERPUD1 ...
    • Herpudl impacts insulin-dependent glucose uptake in skeletal muscle cells by controlling the Ca2+-calcineurin-Akt axis 

      Navarro Márquez, Mario F.; Torrealba, Natalia; Troncoso, Rodrigo; Vásquez Trincado, César; Rodríguez, Marcelo; Morales, Pablo E.; Villalobos, Elisa; Eura, Yuka; García Nannig, Lorena; Chiong Lay, Mario; Klip, Amira; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Kokame, Koichi; Lavandero González, Sergio (Elsevier, 2018)
      Skeletal muscle plays a central role in insulin-controlled glucose homeostasis. The molecular mechanisms related to insulin resistance in this tissue are incompletely understood. Herpud1 is an endoplasmic reticulum membrane ...
    • 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 ...
    • Membrane electrical activity elicits inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate-dependent slow Ca2+ signals through a G beta gamma/phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase gamma pathway in skeletal myotubes 

      Eltit Ortega, José Miguel; García, Alejandra; Hidalgo Tapia, Jorge; Liberona Leppe, José; Chiong Lay, Mario; Lavandero González, Sergio; Maldonado Maldonado, Edio; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique (AMER SOC BIOCHEMISTRY MOLECULAR BIOLOGY INC, 2006-04-28)
      Tetanic electrical stimulation of myotubes evokes a ryanodine receptor-related fast calcium signal, during the stimulation, followed by a phospholipase C/inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate-dependent slow calcium signal few seconds ...
    • Mitochondria fine-tune the slow Ca2+ transients induced by electrical stimulation of skeletal myotubes 

      Eisner, Verónica; Parra, Valentina; Lavandero González, Sergio; Hidalgo Tapia, María Cecilia; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique (Elsevier Ltd, 2010)
      Mitochondria sense cytoplasmic Ca2+ signals in many cell types. In mammalian skeletal myotubes, depolarizing stimuli induce two independent cytoplasmic Ca2+ signals: a fast signal associated with contraction and a slow ...
    • New insights into IGF-1 signaling in the heart 

      Troncoso Cotal, Rodrigo Hernán; Ibarra, Cristián; Vicencio, José Miguel; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Lavandero González, Sergio (Elsevier, 2014)
      Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) signaling regulates contractility, metabolism, hypertrophy, autophagy, senescence, and apoptosis in the heart. IGF-1 deficiency is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascul ...
    • Parallel activation of Ca2+-induced survival and death pathways in cardiomyocytes by sorbitol-induced hyperosmotic stress 

      Chiong Lay, Mario; Parra, V.; Eisner, V.; Ibarra, C.; Maldonado, C.; Criollo Céspedes, Alfredo; Bravo, R.; Quiroga, C.; Contreras, A.; Vicencio Bustamante, José Manuel; Cea, P.; Bucarey, J. L.; Molgó, Jordi; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Hidalgo Tapia, María Cecilia; Kroemer, G.; Lavandero González, Sergio (2010)
      Hyperosmotic stress promotes rapid and pronounced apoptosis in cultured cardiomyocytes. Here, we investigated if Ca2+ signals contribute to this response. Exposure of cardiomyocytes to sorbitol [600 mosmol (kg water)-1] ...
