    Aims The Cav3.2 T-channel plays a pivotal role in inducing calcineurin/nuclear factor of activated T cell (NFAT) signalling during cardiac hypertrophy. Because calcineurin/NFAT signalling is induced early after pressure overload, we hypothesized that Cav3.2 is induced by an early signal. Our aim...

    Once the TCR-SAg-MHC II ternary complex is established, it triggers a variety of intracellular signal transduction pathways, which provoke extreme responses in the immune system. However, the signaling events that involved in SAg-induced immune activation are not well understood. In this study,...

    Vertebrate embryos display a predominant head-to-tail body axis whose formation is associated with the progressive development of post-cranial structures from a pool of caudal undifferentiated cells. This involves the maintenance of active FGF signaling in this caudal region as a consequence of...

    Most cardiac diseases are associated with fibrosis. Calcineurin (CaN) is regulated by Ca2+/calmodulin (CaM). The CaN-NFAT (nuclear factor of activated T cell) pathway is involved in the process of cardiac diseases, such as cardiac hypertrophy, but its effect on myocardial fibrosis remains...

    The Hedgehog pathway is a pivotal morphogenic driver during embryonic development and a key regulator of adult stem cell self-renewal. The discovery of resident multipotent vascular stem cells and adventitial progenitors within the vessel wall has transformed our understanding of the origin of...
