Myocardial fibrosis, resulting from ischemic injury, increases tissue resistivity in the infarct area, which impedes heart synchronous electrical propagation. The uneven conduction between myocardium and fibrotic tissue leads to dys-synchronous contraction, which progresses towards ventricular dysfunction. We synthesized a conductive...

Microtubule targeting agents (MTAs) have been reported to manifest their cytotoxic effects not only in mitosis but also in interphase. However, the relationship between phase-specific susceptibility and MTA concentration, especially with respect to microtubule integrity, remains poorly defined. In addition...
