Interactions of short-term and chronic treadmill training with aging of the left ventricle of the heart (2015)
Journal Article
Walton, R. D., Jones, S. A., Rostron, K. A., Kayani, A. C., Close, G. L., McArdle, A., & Lancaster, M. K. (2016). Interactions of short-term and chronic treadmill training with aging of the left ventricle of the heart. The journals of gerontology. Series A, Biological sciences and medical sciences, 71(8), 1005-1013. https://doi.org/10.1093/gerona/glv093

With aging, there is a decline in cardiac function accompanying increasing risk of arrhythmias. These effects are likely to be mechanistically associated with age-associated changes in calcium regulation within cardiac myocytes. Previous studies sugg...

Progressive age-associated activation of JNK associates with conduction disruption in the aged atrium (2015)
Journal Article
Jones, S. A., & Lancaster, M. K. (2015). Progressive age-associated activation of JNK associates with conduction disruption in the aged atrium. Mechanisms of ageing and development, 146-148, 72-80. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mad.2015.05.001

Connexin43 (Cx43) is critical for maintaining electrical conduction across atrial muscle. During progressive ageing atrial conduction slows associating with increasing susceptibility to arrhythmias. Changes in Cx43 protein expression, or its phosphor... Read More about Progressive age-associated activation of JNK associates with conduction disruption in the aged atrium.

Effects of candesartan, an angiotensin II receptor type I blocker, on atrial remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive rats (2015)
Journal Article
Choisy, S. C., Kim, S., Hancox, J. C., Jones, S. A., & James, A. F. (2015). Effects of candesartan, an angiotensin II receptor type I blocker, on atrial remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive rats. Physiological Reports, 3(1), e12274. https://doi.org/10.14814/phy2.12274

Hypertension-induced structural remodeling of the left atrium (LA) has been suggested to involve the renin–angiotensin system. This study investigated whether treatment with an angiotensin receptor blocker, candesartan, regresses atrial remodeling in...
