OBJECTIVE: Doxorubicin (DOX) induces cardiac dysfunction. Paracetamol (APAP) has also been established as an effective cardioprotective agent during ischemia/reperfusion. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the effect of APAP on DOX-induced cardiotoxicity in ischemia/reperfused isolated rat heart. METHODS: A total of 36 rats were equally divided into four groups: control, DOX (30 min, 20 µM DOX perfusion), APAP (15 min before and after ischemia, 0.35 mM APAP perfusion), and DOX+APAP (perfused with the same protocol in DOX and APAP groups)...

OBJECTIVE: (R)-2-methoxyethyl1-(1-phenylethyl)-1H-imidazole-5-carboxylate hydrochloride (ET-26 HCl) is a novel etomidate analogue. The purpose of this study was to characterize whether ET-26 HCl could retain the superior myocardial performance of etomidate in vivo and in vitro. METHODS: In vivo, the influence of ET-26 HCl and etomidate on the cardiac function of dogs was confirmed using echocardiography and electrocardiogram. In vitro, a Langendorff preparation was used to examine direct myocardial performance in isolated rat hearts, and a whole-cell patch-clamp technique was used to study effects on the human ether-a-go-go-related gene (hERG) channel...

Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) is a nonselective cation channel and a molecular integrator of noxious stimuli. TRPV1 activation confers cardiac protection against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. The present study aimed to investigate whether the cardioprotective effects of TRPV1 were associated with the inhibition of apoptosis via the phosphatidylinositol 3‑kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt) and extracellular signal‑regulated protein kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) signaling pathways. Briefly, the hearts of TRPV1 knockout (TRPV1‑/‑) or wild‑type (WT) mice were isolated and subjected to 30 min of ischemia followed by 60 min of reperfusion in a Langendorff apparatus in the presence or absence of the PI3K inhibitor, LY294002...

OBJECTIVE: Cav3.1 (α1G ) T-type Ca2+ channel (TTCC) is expressed in mouse sinoatrial node cells (SANCs) and atrioventricular nodal (AVN) cells and contributes to heart rate genesis and AV conduction. However, its role in heart rate (HR) regulation and AV conduction acceleration by the β-adrenergic system (SAS) is unclear, which is the topic of this study. METHODS AND RESULTS: L- (ICa-L ) and T-type (ICa-T ) Ca2+ currents were recorded in SANCs from Cav3.1 transgenic (TG) and knockout (KO), and control mice...

Ex vivo heart perfusion has been shown to be an effective means of facilitating the resuscitation and assessment of donor hearts for cardiac transplantation. Over the last ten years however, only a few ex vivo perfusion systems have been developed for this application. While results have been promising, a system capable of facilitating multiple perfusion strategies on the same platform has not yet been realized. In this paper, the design, development and testing of a novel and modular ex vivo perfusion system is described...

Mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPTP) opening is the main culprit of ischemic/reperfusion (IR) injury. It is reported that c-subunit of ATP synthase is the core component of MPTP. Danshensu (DSS), a monomer isolated from the traditional Chinese herb Danshen, has showed cardioprotective effect against IR injury through unknown mechanism. In this study, rat hearts were suspended in Langendorff instrument and perfused with Krebs-Henseleit (KH) buffer containing DSS for 60 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of global ischemia...

The tyrosine kinase inhibitor Sunitinib is used to treat cancer and is linked to severe adverse cardiovascular events. Mitogen activated kinase kinase 7 (MKK7) is involved in the development of cardiac injury and is a component of the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) signal transduction pathway. Apoptosis signal-regulating kinase 1 (ASK1) is the upstream activator of MKK7 and is specifically inhibited by 2,7-dihydro-2,7-dioxo-3H-naphtho[1,2,3-de]quinoline-1-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (NQDI-1). This study investigates the role of ASK1, MKK7 and JNK during Sunitinib-induced cardiotoxicity...

BACKGROUND: Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) are a major cause of fatal drug poisoning due to their cardiotoxicity. Alkalinization by sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) administration, the first-line therapy for TCA-induced cardiotoxicity, can occasionally yield insufficient efficacy in severe cases. Because most TCAs are highly lipophilic, lipid emulsion may be more effective than alkalinization. However, it remains to be determined whether lipid emulsion is more beneficial than alkalinization in reversing amitriptyline-induced cardiotoxicity...

Aims: Creatine buffers cellular ATP via the creatine kinase reaction. Creatine levels are reduced in heart failure, but their contribution to pathophysiology is unclear. Arginine:glycine amidinotransferase (AGAT) in the kidney catalyses both the first step in creatine biosynthesis as well as homoarginine synthesis. AGAT-/- mice fed a creatine-free diet have a whole body creatine-deficiency. We hypothesised that AGAT-/- mice would develop cardiac dysfunction and rescue by dietary creatine would imply causality...

Extracellular diadenosine polyphosphates (ApnA) are recently considered as an endogenous signaling compounds with transmitter-like activity which present in numerous tissues, including heart. It has been demonstrated previously that extracellular ApnA cause alteration of the heart functioning via purine receptors in different mammalian species. Nevertheless, principal intracellular pathways which underlie ApnA action in the heart remain unknown. In the present study the role of the P2Y-associated intracellular regulatory pathway in the mediation of diadenosine tetraphosphate (Ap4A) effects in the rat heart has been investigated for the first time...

Studies have demonstrated that thyroid hormone (T3) can precondition the heart against ischaemic injury and improve post-ischaemic recovery. This study investigated whether the AT2 receptor (AT2R) is involved in cardioprotection and the potential molecular mechanism responsible for this effect. Hyperthyroidism was induced in male wild-type (WT) and AT2R knockout (KO) mice by administering daily intraperitoneal injections of T3 (7 μg/100 g body weight) for 14 days. The mouse hearts were harvested and perfused with a Krebs-Henseleit solution at a constant flow in a Langendorff set-up...

Oscar Langendorff introduced the first method for isolating a heart with contractile activity in 1895. Since then, the Langendorff method has remained a powerful technique in cardiac research and has led to major advances in medicine. The primary goal of the Langendorff method is to provide an isolated heart with oxygen and metabolites via a cannula inserted into the aorta. The Langendorff heart is a complex in vitro technique used primarily in pharmacological and physiological research that allows the evaluation of multiple cardiac hemodynamic parameters including, but not limited to, contractility and heart rate...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors (SGLT2i) constitute a novel class of glucose-lowering (type 2) kidney-targeted agents. We recently reported that the SGLT2i empagliflozin (EMPA) reduced cardiac cytosolic Na+ ([Na+]c) and cytosolic Ca2+ ([Ca2+]c) concentrations through inhibition of Na+/H+ exchanger (NHE). Here, we examine (1) whether the SGLT2i dapagliflozin (DAPA) and canagliflozin (CANA) also inhibit NHE and reduce [Na+]c; (2) a structural model for the interaction of SGLT2i to NHE; (3) to what extent SGLT2i affect the haemodynamic and metabolic performance of isolated hearts of healthy mice...

Myocardial depression, frequently observed in septic shock, is mediated by circulating molecules such as cytokines. TNF-α appears to be the most important pro-inflammatory cytokine released during the early phase of a septic shock. It was previously shown that TNF-α had a negative inotropic effect on myocardium. Now, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the activation of PKC by TNF-α on heart function, and to determine if this cytokine could induce a decrease of membrane excitability. Isolated rat hearts (n = 6) were perfused with Tyrode solution containing TNF-α at 20 ng/ml during 30 min by using a Langendorff technique...

Aldose reductase (AR: human, AKR1B1; mouse, AKR1B3), the first enzyme in the polyol pathway, plays a key role in mediating myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. In earlier studies, using transgenic mice broadly expressing human AKR1B1 to human-relevant levels, mice devoid of Akr1b3, and pharmacological inhibitors of AR, we demonstrated that AR is an important component of myocardial I/R injury and that inhibition of this enzyme protects the heart from I/R injury. In this study, our objective was to investigate if AR modulates the β-catenin pathway and consequent activation of mesenchymal markers during I/R in the heart...

Patients with chronic constipation benefit from treatment with 5-hydroxytryptamine 4 (5-HT4) receptor agonists. However, the first-generation 5-HT4 receptor agonists cisapride and tegaserod were withdrawn from the market owing to rare cardiovascular adverse events, which were not 5-HT4-receptor-related, but due to the lack of selectivity of these drugs. Here we report the nonclinical cardiovascular profile of the selective 5-HT4 receptor agonist prucalopride. To assess its non-5-HT4 receptor-mediated effects on cardiovascular electrophysiological parameters, in vitro studies were performed in human ether-a-go-go-related gene-transfected cells, guinea pig ventricular myocytes and papillary muscle preparations, rabbit and dog Purkinje fibers, and the Langendorff rabbit heart...

Cardiac mast cell activation is involved in the process of myocardial ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury and exacerbates myocardial infarction. Propofol, an anesthetic with antioxidant property, can reduce myocardial infarct size in I/R injury. The present study was designed to investigate whether propofol can attenuate myocardial I/R injury by inhibiting resident cardiac mast cell activation by a Langendorff model. Thirty rats were randomly assigned to 5 groups (n=6 per group): control group and four test groups (I/R, I/R+compound 48/80, I/R+propofol, I/R+compound 48/80+propofol)...
