Molecular mechanisms of cardiac hypertrophy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the last few years significant progress in the understanding of the molecular and cellular pathways involved in the control of cardiac structure and function has been achieved. A thorough appraisal of these mechanisms is in fact of great importance in the comprehension of the molecular abnormalities that may lead to cardiac hypertrophy and dysfunction. This article reviews some of the most important molecular mechanisms of signaling and transduction integrated pathways in the normal myocyte and in the hypertrophic cardiac cells.
