Reduced cardiomyocyte excitation-contraction coupling and downregulation of the SERCA2a (sarcoendoplasmic reticulum calcium ATPase 2a) is associated with heart failure. This has led to viral transgene upregulation of SERCA2a in cardiomyocytes as a treatment. We hypothesized that SERCA2a gene therapy expressed under a similar promiscuous cytomegalovirus promoter could also affect the cardiac sympathetic neural axis and promote sympathoexcitation. Stellate neurons were isolated from 90 to 120 g male, Sprague-Dawley, Wistar Kyoto, and spontaneously hypertensive rats...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: A major challenge for current therapeutic strategies against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) is the lack of effective drugs. Considering luteolin enhances the activity of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase (SERCA2a) to improve the systolic/diastolic function of rat hearts and cardiomyocytes during the I/R process, we studied the regulatory function of the p38 MAPK pathway in this protective mechanism. METHODS: Isolated cardiomyocytes and perfused hearts were separately divided into five groups and used to investigate I/R...

BACKGROUND: The calcium clearance and reactive oxygen species (ROS) generations in the coronary artery smooth muscle cells in chronic heart failure (HF) have not been fully investigated. Therefore, we attempted to understand the gene expressions underlying the mishandling of calcium clearance and the accumulations of ROS. METHODS: We initially established an animal model of chronic HF by making the left anterior descending coronary artery ligation (CAL) in rats, and then isolated the coronary artery vascular smooth muscle cells from the ischemic and the nonischemic parts of the coronary artery vessels in 12 weeks after CAL operation...

Activin like kinase-1 (AlK-1) mediates signaling via the transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) family of ligands. AlK-1 activity promotes endothelial proliferation and migration. Reduced AlK-1 activity is associated with arteriovenous malformations. No studies have examined the effect of global AlK-1 deletion on indices of cardiac remodeling. We hypothesized that reduced levels of AlK-1 promote maladaptive cardiac remodeling. To test this hypothesis, we employed AlK-1 conditional knockout mice (cKO) harboring the ROSA26-CreER knock-in allele, whereby a single dose of intraperitoneal tamoxifen triggered ubiquitous Cre recombinase-mediated excision of floxed AlK-1 alleles...

This review focuses on the sodium-calcium exchangers (NCX) in the left anterior descending coronary artery smooth muscle. Bathing tissues in Na(+)-substituted solutions caused them to contract. In cultured smooth muscle cells, it increased the cytosolic Ca(2+) concentration and extracellular entry of (45)Ca(2+). All three activities were attributed to NCX since they were inhibited by NCX inhibitors. The tissues also expressed the sarco/endoplasmic reticulum (SER) Ca(2+) pump SERCA2b whose activity was much greater than that of NCX...

Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE), an important Ca(2+) signaling pathway in non-excitable cells, regulates a variety of cellular functions. To study its physiological role, pharmacological tools, like 2-aminoethyl diphenylborinate (2-APB), are used to impact SOCE. 2-APB is one of the best characterized SOCE inhibitors. However, 2-APB also activates SOCE at lower concentrations, while it inhibits inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs), sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPases (SERCAs) and other ion channels, like TRP channels...

The polyphenolic compound curcumin has been reported for its antimalarial properties in various scientific studies. Plasmodium falciparum ATP6, the parasite orthologue of mammalian sarcoplasmic Ca(2+) ATPase (SERCA) has been identified as a key molecular target of both artemisinin and curcumin. The work was thereby undertaken to study the anti-malarial properties of two different series of curcumin analogues based on their docking interactions with PfATP6 and correlating the results with their anti-malarial activity...

The Ca(2+) activated Cl(-) channel TMEM16A [anoctamin (ANO)1] is homologous to yeast Ist2 and has been shown to tether the cortical endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the plasma membrane. We therefore examined whether ANO1 and other members of the ANO family affect intracellular Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)]i) signals. It is shown that expression of ANO1 augments Ca(2+) store release upon stimulation of GPCRs, whereas knockdown of ANO1, or lack of Ano1 expression in Ano1(-/-) animals as shown in an earlier report, inhibits Ca(2+) release...

Chronic administration of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) in adult rats results in cardiac hypertrophy and increased susceptibility to myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury. Molecular analyses demonstrated that hyperactivation of type 1 angiotensin II (AT1) receptor mediates cardiac hypertrophy induced by AAS and also induces down-regulation of myocardial ATP-sensitive potassium channel (KATP), resulting in loss of exercise-induced cardioprotection. Exposure to AAS during adolescence promoted long-term cardiovascular dysfunctions, such as dysautonomia...

We have studied in HeLa cells the molecular nature of the 2-APB induced ER Ca(2+) leak using synthetic Ca(2+) indicators that report changes in both the cytoplasmic ([Ca(2+)]i) and the luminal ER ([Ca(2+)]ER) Ca(2+) concentrations. We have tested the hypothesis that Orai channels participate in the 2-APB-induced ER Ca(2+) leak that was characterized in the companion paper. The expression of the dominant negative Orai1 E106A mutant, which has been reported to block the activity of all three types of Orai channels, inhibited the effect of 2-APB on the [Ca(2+)]ER but did not decrease the ER Ca(2+) leak after thapsigargin (TG)...

BACKGROUND: Caryocar brasiliense (pequi) oil is high in monounsaturated fat acids (MUFA), especially oleic, and in carotenoids, which have been associated with protection against cardiovascular disease. However, this food is poorly studied in this context, especially in the cardiac function. Therefore, we investigated the effects of a long-term intake of pequi oil in systemic cardiovascular risk factors and in the ex vivo cardiac function of rats. METHODS: Previously, we determined fatty acids and carotenoids in pequi oil...

INTRODUCTION: Calcium (Ca(2+)) leak during cardiac diastole is chiefly mediated by intracellular Ca(2+) channel/Ryanodine Receptors. Increased diastolic Ca(2+) leak has been proposed as the mechanism underlying the appearance of hereditary arrhythmias. However, little is known about alterations in diastolic Ca(2+) leak and the specific roles played by key intracellular Ca(2+)-handling proteins in hyperthyroidism, a known arrhythmogenic condition. AIM: We sought to determine whether there were modifications in diastolic Ca(2+) leak, based on the recording of Ca(2+) sparks and Ca(2+) waves; we also investigated changes in the expression and activity of key Ca(2+) handling proteins, including ryanodine receptors, Sarco-Endoplasmic Reticulum Ca(2+) ATPase pump and calsequestrin in isolated left-ventricular cardiomyocytes isolated from hyperthyroid rats...

Darier's disease (DD) is an autosomal dominantly inherited skin disorder caused by mutations in SERCA2, a Ca(2+) pump that transports Ca(2+) from the cytosol to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Loss of desmosomes and keratinocyte cohesion is a characteristic feature of DD. Desmosomal cadherins (DC) are Ca(2+) -dependent transmembrane adhesion proteins of desmosomes, which are mislocalized in the lesional but not perilesional skin of DD. We show here that inhibition of SERCA2 by two distinct inhibitors results in accumulation of DC precursors in keratinocytes, indicating ER-to-Golgi transport of nascent DC is blocked...

The Ca(2+) -ATPases from the Sarco/endoplasmic reticulum (SERCA) are fundamental for maintaining intracellular [Ca(2+) ] homeostasis by pumping Ca(2+) into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of eukaryotic cells. SERCA enzymes are encoded by three different genes (ATP2A1-3), whose expression occurs in a tissue and development stage-specific manner. It has been reported alterations in the expression of SERCA2 and SERCA3 pumps in different types of cancer: oral, lung, colon, stomach, central nervous system, thyroid, breast, and prostate...

Bisphenol A (BPA) and its brominated derivative tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) are high production volume chemicals utilized in the manufacture of various consumer products. Although regarded as endocrine disruptors, these chemicals are suspected to exert non-genomic actions on muscle function that are not well understood. Using skeletal muscle microsomes, we examined the effects of BPA and TBBPA on ryanodine receptor type 1 (RyR1), dihydropyridine receptor (DHPR), and sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) ATPase (SERCA)...

The sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) pumps are integral membrane proteins that catalyze the active transport of Ca(2+) into the sarcoplasmic reticulum, thereby eliciting muscle relaxation. SERCA pumps are highly susceptible to oxidative damage, and cytoprotection of SERCA dampens thermal inactivation and is a viable therapeutic strategy in combating diseases where SERCA activity is impaired, such as muscular dystrophy. Here, we sought to determine whether increasing the percent of saturated fatty acids (SFA) within SERCA's lipid annulus through diet could protect SERCA pumps from thermal inactivation...

It has been demonstrated that Liguzinediol (LZDO), a derivative of ligustrazine from ligusticum wallichii Franch, exerts positive inotropy in isolated rat heart mediated by the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca-ATPase (SERCA2a). Here, we further explore the underlying mechanism of the positive inotropic effect of LZDO in rat hearts. In vivo and ex vivo rat heart experiments, biochemistry and Western blot techniques were used to analyze the rat heart contractility, SERCA2a activity, phospholamban (PLB) phosphorylation and protein phosphatase (PP1 and PP2A) activities in rat left ventricular myocytes, respectively...

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a widespread disease that has a negative impact on health, worldwide. Despite advances in therapies, morbidity, mortality and hospital discharges due to CHF remain high. Advances in the understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms of CHF and the development of gene transfer technology have made gene therapy a realistic potential therapeutic method for CHF. Among the various potential targets, sarco-endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase 2a (SERCA2a), which is an important protein in the regulation of Ca2+ cycling, has piqued the interest of many researchers...
