Rapamycin treatment unmasks a sex-specific pattern of scar expansion of the infarcted rat heart

Recommend Faculti to your resource manager

Inhibition of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) with the macrolide rapamycin or pharmacological suppression of KATP channel opening translated to scar expansion of the myocardial infarcted (MI) adult female rodent heart. Angelino Calderone tested the hypotheses that rapamycin-mediated scar expansion was sex-specific and that mTOR signaling directly influenced KATP channel subunit expression/activity.
