Doxorubicin is a potent and widely used antineoplastic agent. However, almost 30% of patients treated with doxorubicin develop heart failure. The mechanism behind its cardiotoxic effect is elusive. Recent evidence suggests that doxorubicin accumulates in cardiac mitochondria causing both mutations and reduction in number of mitochondrial DNA copies. This scenario reduces the expression ...
Physical inactivity is considered one of the main factors for the increase in the incidence of chronic-degenerative diseases. The benefits of physical exercise are directly linked to the improvement of mitochondrial bioenergetic input. Recently, we demonstrated that the optimization of cardiac mitochondrial metabolism in physical exercise is associated to the degree of mitochondrial pla...
