Galectin-3-centered paracrine network mediates cardiac inflammation and fibrosis upon β-adrenergic insult

In a study led by Dr. Han Xiao (Department of cardiology and institute of vascular medicine, Peking university third hospital), researchers found that rapid over-activation of β-adrenergic receptors (β-AR) following acute stress initiates cardiac inflammation and injury. However, the process of inflammation cascades has not been fully illustrated. Using bioinformatics analysis, the research team discovered […]
