The ability of air particulate matter (PM) to cause reactive oxygen species-driven protein damage is associated with both COPD and lung cancer, but the mechanisms are unsettled. In this study, we investigated the co-expression of Hsp70 and the autophagy marker protein LC3 in A549 cells (alveolar epithelial cell line) and THP-1 cells (monocyte/macrophage cells) grown in media supplemented with 100 μg/mL of four types of PM: carbon black (CB), urban dust (UD), nanoparticulate CB (NPCB), and nanopa...

Store-Operated Ca2+ Entry (SOCE) is an important Ca2+ influx pathway expressed by several excitable and non-excitable cell types. SOCE is recognized as relevant signaling pathway not only for physiological process, but also for its involvement in different pathologies. In fact, independent studies demonstrated the implication of essential protein regulating SOCE, such as STIM, Orai and TRPCs, in different pathogenesis and cell disorders, including cardiovascular disease, muscular dystrophies and...

Comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation programmes include multifactorial components to optimise cardiovascular risk reduction, promote healthy behaviours and an active lifestyle, reduce disability and improve health and wellbeing. There is compelling evidence that older people with certain cardiovascular conditions, such as heart failure, can benefit both physically and mentally from cardiac rehabilitation. This chapter discusses the evolution of cardiac rehabilitation, frailty assessment in cardi...

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a DNA virus, belonging to the Hepadnaviridae family. It is a partially double-stranded DNA virus with a small viral genome (3.2 kb). Chronic HBV infection remains a global public health problem. If left untreated, chronic HBV infection can progress to end-stage liver disease, such as liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In recent years, tremendous advances in the field of HBV basic and clinical research have been achieved, ranging from the HBV biological...

The multifunctional Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type 2 (CaMK-II) was first discovered in brain tissue and shown to have a central role in long term potentiation, responding to Ca2+ elevations through voltage dependent channels. CaMK-II has a unique molecular mechanism that enables it to remain active in proportion to the degree (frequency and amplitude) of Ca2+ elevations, long after such elevations have subsided. Ca2+ is also a rapid activator of early development and CaMK-II is ex...
Cancer cells acquire the ability to modify the calcium signaling network by altering the expression and functions of cation channels, pumps or transporters. Calcium signaling pathways are involved in proliferation, angiogenesis, invasion, immune evasion, disruption of cell death pathways, ECM remodelling, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and drug resistance. Among cation channels, a pivotal role is played by the Transient Receptor Potential non-selective cation-permeable receptors localiz...
