Hydrogen sulfide donor micelles protect cardiomyocytes from ischemic cell death

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydrogen sulfide, an important gaseous signaling molecule in the human body, is known to protect cardiomyocytes from ischemia, a condition characterized by insufficient oxygen supply to the cells. Here we show that a nanosized H2S donor micelle releases H2S intracellularly and prevents cardiomyocyte apoptosis in an in vitro ischemia model.
