Histone methylation and demethylation are implicated in the transient and sustained activation of the interleukin-1β gene in murine macrophages.

Hiroyuki Imuta, Daishi Fujita, Shigeyoshi Oba, Arihiro Kiyosue, Hiroaki Nishimatsu, Kazuo Yudo, Etsu Suzuki,

Macrophages play a crucial role in the development of atherosclerosis. To explore the mechanism by which macrophages attain a proinflammatory phenotype for a sustained period, we stimulated macrophages with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) and measured the interleukin-1β (IL-1β) expression. The IL-1β expression increased transiently, and its expression lasted for, ... Read more >>

Noninvasive assessment of intraventricular pressure difference in left ventricular dyssynchrony using vector flow mapping.

Seina Minami, Kasumi Masuda, Marie Stugaard, Toshiki Kamimukai, Toshihiko Asanuma, Satoshi Nakatani,

Diastolic intraventricular pressure difference (IVPD) reflects left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. The relative pressure imaging (RPI) enables the noninvasive quantification of IVPD based on vector flow mapping (VFM) and visualization of regional pressure distribution. LV dyssynchrony causes deterioration of cardiac performance. However, it remains unclear how IVPD is modulated by ... Read more >>
