    • Parra Ortíz, María Valentina; Altamirano, Francisco; Hernández Fuentes, Carolina; Tong, Dan; Kyrychenko, Victoriia; Rotter, David; Pedrozo Cibils, Zully; Hill, Joseph A.; Eisner, Verónica; Lavandero González, Sergio; Schneider, Jay W.; Rothermel, Beverly A. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2018)
      Rationale: The regulator of calcineurin 1 (RCAN1) inhibits CN (calcineurin), a Ca2+-activated protein phosphatase important in cardiac remodeling. In humans, RCAN1 is located on chromosome 21 in proximity to the Down ...
    • Osorio Fuentealba, César; Contreras Ferrat, Ariel Eduardo; Altamirano, Francisco; Espinosa, Alejandra; Li, Qing; Niu, Wenyan; Lavandero González, Sergio; Klip, Amira; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique (2013)
      Skeletal muscle glucose uptake in response to exercise is preserved in insulin-resistant conditions, but the signals involved are debated. ATP is released from skeletal muscle by contractile activity and can autocrinely ...
    • Kim, Soo Young; Zhang, Xin; Schiattarella, Gabriele G.; Altamirano, Francisco; Ramos, Thais; French, Kristin M.; Jiang, Nan; Szweda, Pamela A.; Evers, Bret M.; May, Herman; Luo, Xiang; Li, Hongliang; Szweda, Luke; Maracajá Coutinho, Vinicius; Lavandero González, Sergio; Gillette, Thomas G.; Hill, Joseph A. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2020)
      BACKGROUND: BET (bromodomain and extraterminal) epigenetic reader proteins, in particular BRD4 (bromodomain-containing protein 4), have emerged as potential therapeutic targets in a number of pathological conditions, ...
    • Ferdous, Anwarul; Wang, Zhao V.; Luo, Yuxuan; Li, Dan L.; Luo, Xiang; Schiattarella, Gabriele G.; Altamirano, Francisco; May, Herman I.; Battiprolu, Pavan K.; Nguyen, Annie; Rothermel, Beverly A.; Lavandero González, Sergio; Gillette, Thomas G.; Hill, Joseph A. (Nature, 2020)
      Forkhead box O (FoxO) proteins and thyroid hormone (TH) have well established roles in cardiovascular morphogenesis and remodeling. However, specific role(s) of individual FoxO family members in stress-induced growth and ...
    • Altamirano, Francisco; López, Jose R.; Henríquez, Carlos; Molinski, Tadeusz; Allen, Paul D.; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique (2012)
      Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder caused by dystrophin mutations, characterized by chronic inflammation and severe muscle wasting. Dystrophic muscles exhibit activated immune cell infiltrates, ...
    • Altamirano, Francisco; Valladares, Denisse; Henríquez Olguín, Carlos; Casas, Mariana; López, Jose R.; Allen, Paul D.; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique (2013)
      Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a recessive X-linked genetic disease, caused by mutations in the gene encoding dystrophin. DMD is characterized in humans and in mdx mice by a severe and progressive destruction of ...
    • Henríquez Olguín, Carlos; Díaz Vegas, Alexis; Utreras Mendoza, Yildy; Campos Acevedo, Cristian; Arias Calderón, Manuel; Llanos Vidal, Paola; Contreras Ferrat, Ariel Eduardo; Espinosa Escalona, Alejandra; Altamirano, Francisco; Jaimovich Pérez, Enrique; Valladares Ide, Denisse (Frontiers Media, 2016)
      Reactive oxygen species (ROS) participate as signaling molecules in response to exercise in skeletal muscle. However, the source of ROS and the molecular mechanisms involved in these phenomena are still not completely ...
    • Peña Oyarzún, Daniel; Rodríguez Peña, Marcelo; Burgos Bravo, Francesca; Vergara, Ángelo; Kretschmar Montecinos, Catalina; Sotomayor Flores, Cristián; Ramírez Sarmiento, César A.; De Smedt, Humbert; Reyes Rojas, Montserrat; Pérez, William; Torres Gómez, Vicente; Morselli, Eugenia; Altamirano, Francisco; Wilson, Christian; Hill, Joseph A.; Lavandero González, Sergio; Criollo Céspedes, Alfredo (Taylor & Francis, 2020)
      Macroautophagy/autophagy is an intracellular process involved in the breakdown of macromolecules and organelles. Recent studies have shown that PKD2/PC2/TRPP2 (polycystin 2, transient receptor potential cation channel), a ...
    • Criollo Céspedes, Alfredo; Altamirano, Francisco; Pedrozo Cibils, Zully; Schiattarella, Gabriele G.; Li, Dan L.; Rivera‐Mejias, Pablo; Sotomayor Flores, Cristian; Parra, Valentina; Villalobos, Elisa; Battiprolu, Pavan K.; Jiang, Nan; May, Herman I.; Morselli, Eugenia; Somlo, Stefan; Smedt, Humbert de; Gillette, Thomas G.; Lavandero González, Sergio; Hill, Joseph A. (Elsevier, 2018-05)
      Aims: Considerable evidence points to critical roles of intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis in the modulation and control of autophagic activity. Yet, underlying molecular mechanisms remain unknown. Mutations in the gene (pkd2) ...
