    • Atrial natriuretic peptide is negatively regulated by microRNA-425 

      Arora, Pankaj; Wu, Connie; Khan, Abigail May; Bloch, Donald Bendit; Davis-Dusenbery, Brandi Nicole; Ghorbani, Anahita; Spagnolli, Ester; Martinez, Andrew; Ryan, Allicia; Tainsh, Laurel T.; Kim, Samuel M; Rong, Jian; Huan, Tianxiao; Freedman, Jane E.; Levy, Daniel; Miller, Karen Klahr; Hata, Akiko; Del Monte, Federica; Vandenwijngaert, Sara; Swinnen, Melissa; Janssens, Stefan; Holmes, Tara M.; Buys, Emmanuel; Bloch, Kenneth Daniel; Newton-Cheh, Christopher Holmes; Wang, Thomas (American Society for Clinical Investigation, 2013)
      Numerous common genetic variants have been linked to blood pressure, but no underlying mechanism has been elucidated. Population studies have revealed that the variant rs5068 (A/G) in the 3′ untranslated region of NPPA, ...
    • Decreased Soluble Guanylate Cyclase Contributes to Cardiac Dysfunction Induced by Chronic Doxorubicin Treatment in Mice 

      Vandenwijngaert, Sara; Swinnen, Melissa; Walravens, Ann-Sophie; Beerens, Manu Eddy Maria; Gillijns, Hilde; Caluwé, Ellen; Tainsh, Robert; Nathan, Daniel I.; Allen, Kaitlin; Brouckaert, Peter; Bartunek, Jozef; Scherrer-Crosbie, Marielle; Bloch, Kenneth; Bloch, Donald Bendit; Janssens, Stefan P.; Buys, Emmanuel (Mary Ann Liebert Inc, 2017)
      Aims: The use of doxorubicin, a potent chemotherapeutic agent, is limited by cardiotoxicity. We tested the hypothesis that decreased soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) enzyme activity contributes to the development of ...
    • Ventricular Phosphodiesterase-5 Expression Is Increased in Patients With Advanced Heart Failure and Contributes to Adverse Ventricular Remodeling After Myocardial Infarction in Mice 

      Pokreisz, Peter; Vandenwijngaert, Sara; Bito, Virginie; Van den Bergh, An; Lenaerts, Ilse; Busch, Cornelius; Marsboom, Glenn; Gheysens, Olivier; Vermeersch, Pieter; Biesmans, Liesbeth; Liu, Xiaoshun; Gillijns, Hilde; Pellens, Marijke; Van Lommel, Alfons; Buys, Emmanuel; Schoonjans, Luc; Vanhaecke, Johan; Verbeken, Erik; Sipido, Karin; Herijgers, Paul; Bloch, Kenneth Daniel; Janssens, Stefan P. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2009)
      Background— Ventricular expression of phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5), an enzyme responsible for cGMP catabolism, is increased in human right ventricular hypertrophy, but its role in left ventricular (LV) failure remains ...
