Adrenergic signaling in heart failure and cardiovascular aging.
Both cardiovascular disease and aging are associated with changes in the sympathetic nervous system. Indeed, mounting evidence indicates that adrenergic receptors are functionally involved in numerous processes underlying both aging and cardiovascula

Aging and Heart Rate in Heart Failure: Clinical Implications for Long-term Mortality.
To assess the relationship between resting heart rate and long-term all-cause mortality in ambulatory patients with heart failure (HF) relative to age, considering that although heart rate has been strongly associated with mortality in HF, the influe

The Alpha-1A Adrenergic Receptor in the Rabbit Heart.
The alpha-1A-adrenergic receptor (AR) subtype is associated with cardioprotective signaling in the mouse and human heart. The rabbit is useful for cardiac disease modeling, but data on the alpha-1A in the rabbit heart are limited. Our objective was t

Structural insights and functional implications of inter-individual variability in β2-adrenergic receptor.
The human β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR) belongs to the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) family and due to its central role in bronchodilation, is an important drug target. The inter-individual variability in β2AR has been implicated in disease susce

Leukocyte ß-adrenergic receptor sensitivity and depression severity in patients with heart failure.
Clinical outcomes are worse for patients with heart failure (HF) and elevated depression symptoms. Depression-related sympathoimmune dysregulation may be one mechanism leading to poorer HF prognosis. Sympathetically mediated adrenergic activity is kn

Diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of β1-adrenergic receptor autoantibodies in human heart disease.
Growing evidence indicates a cardio-pathogenic role of autoantibodies against β1-adrenergic receptors (β1AR). In particular autoantibodies stimulating β1AR-mediated cAMP-production (i.e. agonistic β1AR autoantibodies) play a paramount role in chronic

β-adrenergic receptor signalling and its functional consequences in the diseased heart.
To maintain the balance between the demand of the body and supply (cardiac output), cardiac performance is tightly regulated via the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. In heart failure, cardiac output (supply) is decreased due to pathol

Pathological hypertrophy reverses β2-adrenergic receptor-induced angiogenesis in mouse heart.
β-adrenergic activation and angiogenesis are pivotal for myocardial function but the link between both events remains unclear. The aim of this study was to explore the cardiac angiogenesis profile in a mouse model with cardiomyocyte-restricted overex

Adrenergic Receptor Polymorphism and Maximal Exercise Capacity after Orthotopic Heart Transplantation.
Maximal exercise capacity after heart transplantion (HTx) is reduced to the 50-70% level of healthy controls when assessed by cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) despite of normal left ventricular function of the donor heart. This study investiga

A Myocardial Slice Culture Model Reveals Alpha-1A-Adrenergic Receptor Signaling in the Human Heart.
Translation of preclinical findings could benefit from a simple, reproducible, high throughput human model to study myocardial signaling. Alpha-1A-adrenergic receptors (ARs) are expressed at very low levels in the human heart, and it is unknown if th
