Summary: Seminar by Professor Angela Clerk on 'Signalling to gene expression in cardiac myocytes'

Professor Angela Clerk from the University of Reading will present this seminar, speaking on 'Signalling to gene expression in cardiac myocytes'.

Abstract

Cardiomyocytes, the terminally-differentiated contractile cells in the heart, undergo hypertrophic growth in response to agonists such as endothelin-1.

In contrast, oxidative stress promotes apoptosis and/or necrosis. Our studies focus on delineating and understanding the intracellular signalling mechanisms and their impact on gene expression that leads to cardiomyocyte hypertrophy or death.
