    • Vivar, Raúl; Humeres, Claudio; Varela, Marcelo; Ayala, Pedro; Guzmán, Nancy; Olmedo, Ivonne; Catalán, Mabel; Boza Fuentes, Pía; Muñoz, Claudia; Díaz Araya, Guillermo (2012)
      Cardiac fibroblast (CF) death by ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) has major implications for cardiac wound healing. Although IGF-1 has well-known cytoprotective effects, no study has been done on CF subjected to simulated ...
    • Catalán, Mabel; Smolic, Christian; Contreras, Ariel; Ayala, Pedro; Olmedo, Ivonne; Copaja, Miguel; Boza Fuentes, Pía; Vivar, Raúl; Avalos, Yennifer; Lavandero González, Sergio; Velarde, Victoria; Díaz Araya, Guillermo (2012)
      Kinins mediate their cellular effects through B1 (B1R) and B2 (B2R) receptors, and the activation of B2R reduces collagen synthesis in cardiac fibroblasts (CF). However, the question of whether B1R and/or B2R have a role ...

      Cardiac inflammation can be produced by pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), from parasitic, bacterial or viral origin; or by danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs), released from dead cells after cardiac ...
    • Vivar, Raúl; Humeres, Claudio; Muñoz, Claudia; Boza Fuentes, Pía; Bolivar, Samir; Tapia, Felipe; Lavandero González, Sergio; Chiong Lay, Mario; Díaz Araya, Guillermo (Elsevier, 2016)
      © 2015 Elsevier B.V. Cardiac fibroblast differentiation to myofibroblast is a crucial process in the development of cardiac fibrosis and is tightly dependent on transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGF-β1). The transcription ...
    • Olivares Silva, Francisco Javier; Landaeta, Rodolfo; Aránguiz, Pablo; Bolivar, Samir; Humeres Martínez, Claudio; Anfossi, Renatto; Vivar Sánchez, Raúl; Boza Fuentes, Pía; Muñoz Jofré, Claudia; Pardo Jiménez, Viviana Gladys; Peiro, Concepción; Sánchez Ferrer, Carlos; Díaz Araya, Guillermo (Elsevier, 2018)
      Cardiac fibroblasts (CF) act as sentinel cells responding to chemokines, cytokines and growth factors released in cardiac tissue in cardiac injury events, such as myocardial infarction (MI). Cardiac injury involves the ...
