HEART GROWTH CONTROLS PROTEIN
#Cosmoread: Two proteins caused by excessive growth of heart development and heart to treat heart failure that can help to design new strategies for high blood pressure, researchers have identified how to control your customization.
Spain lead investigator from the National Center for Research in Cardiovascular Research by Guadalupe Sabio, the first time that two proteins- p38 and p38 delta gamma control for developing heart suggests.
“This new information asymmetrical development of the growth of heart muscle caused by heart in the design of new strategies to deal with the situation can help,” Sabio in a paper in the journal Nature Communications, said in a newspaper.
By adjusting the size of his heart to the changing needs of each stage of life adapts. In this way, a process called cardiac hypertrophy in the heart, including during pregnancy, increases in line with the rest of our body.
However, excessive physical exercise, high blood pressure and obesity develop excessive heart disease (hypertrophy), a heart attack can lead to a situation that can trigger.
Understanding the molecular processes that regulate heart function and development is of great importance, therefore.
The Sabio’s team was the largest and the heart to pump oxygen-rich blood to the body responsible chamber- ventricle- gamma p38 and p38 that regulate the growth of heart the left delta found.
The research team compared normal hearts of mice lacking these proteins are smaller that showed.
They function normally, though the growth of heart, such as high blood pressure, external stimuli, are incapable of answering.
