    • Electrical stimulation of cardiac adipose tissue-derived progenitor cells modulates cell phenotype and genetic machinery 

      Llucia Valldeperes, A.; Sanchez, B.; Soler Botija, Carolina; Gálvez Montón, Carolina; Prat Vidal, Cristina; Roura, Santiago; Rosell Ferrer, Francisco Javier; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Bayés Genis, Antoni (2015-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      A major challenge of cardiac tissue engineering is directing cells to establish the physiological structure and function of the myocardium being replaced. Our aim was to examine the effect of electrical stimulation on the ...
    • Electromechanical conditioning of adult progenitor cells improves recovery of cardiac function after myocardial infarction 

      Llucia Valldeperes, A.; Soler Botija, Carolina; Gálvez Montón, Carolina; Roura, Santiago; Prat Vidal, Cristina; Perea Gil, Isaac; Sánchez Terrones, Benjamin; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Vunjak-Novakovic, Gordana; Bayés Genis, Antoni (2016-09-29)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Cardiac cells are subjected to mechanical and electrical forces, which regulate gene expression and cellular function. Therefore, in vitro electromechanical stimuli could benefit further integration of therapeutic cells ...
    • Noninvasive assessment of an engineered bioactive graft in myocardial infarction: impact on cardiac function and scar healing 

      Gálvez Montón, Carolina; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Soler Botija, Carolina; Díaz Güemes, Idoia; Prat Vidal, Cristina; Crisóstomo, Verónica; Sánchez Margallo, Francisco M.; Llucia Valldeperes, A.; Bogónez-Franco, Paco; Perea Gil, Isaac; Roura, Santiago; Bayés Genis, Antoni (2016-09-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      Cardiac tissue engineering, which combines cells and biomaterials, is promising for limiting the sequelae of myocardial infarction (MI). We assessed myocardial function and scar evolution after implanting an engineered ...
    • Online monitoring of myocardial bioprosthesis for cardiac repair 

      Prat Vidal, Cristina; Gálvez Montón, Carolina; Sánchez Terrones, Benjamín; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Bogónez Franco, Francisco; Puig Sanvicens, Verónica (2014-07-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Background/objectives The aim of this study was to develop a myocardial bioprosthesis for cardiac repair with an integrated online monitoring system. Myocardial infarction (MI) causes irreversible myocyte loss and scar ...
    • Physiological conditioning by electric field stimulation promotes cardiomyogenic gene expression in human cardiomyocyte progenitor cells 

      Llucía Valldeperas, Aida; Sánchez Terrones, Benjamin; Soler Botija, Carolina; Gálvez Montón, Carolina; Roura, Santiago; Prat Vidal, Cristina; Perea Gil, Isaac; Rosell Ferrer, Francisco Javier; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Bayés-Genís, Antoni (2014-08-04)
      Article
      Open Access
      The optimal cell lineage for cardiac-regeneration approaches remains mysterious. Additionally, electrical stimulation promotes cardiomyogenic differentiation of stimulated cells. Therefore, we hypothesized that electrical ...
    • Unravelling the effects of mechanical physiological conditioning on cardiac adipose tissue-derived progenitor cells in vitro and in silico 

      Llucía Valldeperas, Aida; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Soler Botija, Carolina; Roura Ferrer, Santiago; Gálvez Montón, Carolina; Prat Vidal, Cristina; Perea Gil, Isaac; Bayés Genis, Antoni (Macmillan Publishers, 2018-01-11)
      Article
      Open Access
      Mechanical conditioning is incompletely characterized for stimulating therapeutic cells within the physiological range. We sought to unravel the mechanism of action underlying mechanical conditioning of adipose tissue-derived ...
