Abstract

In this project, we intend to enable pathophysiology studies in experimental models that are being developed by the researchers involved. The topics that will be explored by the researchers are of great medical and biological interest and could answer important questions related to pathologies of high incidence in humans. Among other topics, the projects presented are related to the following: arterial hypertension and its involvement in heart disease (participation of the renin-angiotensin and kallikrein-kinin systems); liver metabolism in the setting of inflammation; the effects of sleep deprivation on physiology and cellular responses; deficiency and activation of various membrane receptors; apoptosis (cell death); study of intracellular proteases; and the development of new fluorescent probes. These projects could allow us to develop and apply new methodologies for study of the intracellular metabolism in various experimental models, identifying associations with the mechanisms of signaling, ionic mobility, and morphology of organelles, as well as with the expression and activity of proteins, or rather, making it possible to understand the complexity of the cell physiology involved in certain pathologies. Therefore, the fluorescence system requested is essential for the analysis (distribution/ morphometry and quantification) of fluorescence in fixed preparations or in cell cultures. Accessories such as an environmentally controlled chamber (with regulation of temperature, CO2, and humidity) and slide holders could be employed in the study of live cells, making it possible to create a controlled environment for metabolic, pharmacological and studies of cell signaling in multiple culture plates.
