      Angiotensin-(1-9) is a peptide from the noncanonical renin-angiotensin system with anti-hypertrophic effects in cardiomyocytes via an unknown mechanism. In the present study we aimed to elucidate it, basing us initially ...
    • 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 ...

    • Morales, Pablo E.; Arias Durán, Carla; Ávalos Guajardo, Yáreni; Aedo, Geraldine; Verdejo, Hugo E.; Parra Ortiz, Valentina; Lavandero González, Sergio (Elsevier, 2020)
      Healthy mitochondrial function is imperative for most tissues, but especially those with a high energy demand. Robust evidence linking mitochondrial dysfunction with cardiovascular disease has demonstrated that mitochondrial ...
    • Morales, Pablo E.; Torres, Gloria; Sotomayor Flores, Cristian Alejandro; Peña Oyarzún, Daniel; Rivera Mejías, Pablo; Paredes, Felipe; Chiong Lay, Mario (Academic Press Inc., 2014)
      Incretin GLP-1 has important metabolic effects on several tissues, mainly through the regulation of glucose uptake and usage. One mechanism for increasing cell metabolism is modulating endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-mitochondria ...
