Purpose: In the present study, postconditioning effect of fructose against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced arrhythmias and infarct size were investigated in isolated rat heart. Methods: The isolated hearts were divided into 7 groups, mounted on a Langendorff apparatus at constant pressure then subjected to 30 min zero flow global ischemia followed by 120 min reperfusion. In the control group, normal Krebs-Henseleit (K/H) solution was perfused into the hearts throughout the experiment. In two separate sets of experiments, the treatment groups received 12, 24 and 48 mM of fructose with/without normal glucose in K/H solution for 20 min at the beginning of reperfusion...

Purpose: Sevoflurane preconditioning (SPC) can provide myocardial protective effects similar to ischemic preconditioning. However, the exact mechanism of SPC remains unclear. Previous studies indicate that vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1 (VEGFR-1) is involved in ischemic preconditioning-mediated cardioprotection. This study was designed to determine the significance of VEGFR-1 signaling in SPC-mediated cardioprotection. Materials and methods: Myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) rat model was established using the Langendorff isolated heart perfusion apparatus...

Excessive increase of cytosolic Ca2+ through the activation of L-type Ca2+ channels (LTCCs) via β adrenergic receptor induces apoptosis of cardiomyocytes. Canstatin, a cleaved fragment of collagen type IV α2 chain, is abundantly expressed in normal heart tissue. We previously reported that canstatin inhibits β adrenergic receptor-stimulated apoptosis in cardiomyoblasts. Here, we tested the hyposeis that canstatin regulates LTCCs activity in ventricular cardiomyocytes. Collagen type IV α2 chain (COL4A2) small interfering (si) RNA (for canstatin suppression) or control siRNA was injected via jugular vein in Wistar rats...

BACKGROUND: We have previously shown that intralipid (lipid emulsion) protects the heart against ischemia/reperfusion injury and bupivacaine-induced cardiotoxicity. However, the precise underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. Here we explored the hypothesis that free fatty acid receptor-1 or G-protein-coupled receptor 40 is expressed in the heart and that cardioprotective effects of lipid emulsion are mediated through G-protein-coupled receptor 40 in two animal models of ischemia/reperfusion injury and bupivacaine-induced cardiotoxicity...

OBJECTIVE: Depressed mechanical activity is a marked complication in diabetics. Hypoxia has properties for novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, while intermittent hypoxia (IH) provides early functional and histologic remodeling, including some cardio benefits in early hemodynamic alterations with histologic remodeling and delayed changes in peripheral vasoreactivity. Therefore, we aimed to examine whether IH application presents a cardioprotective effect, via stabilization of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rat heart...

PURPOSE: Protecting the heart from ischaemia-reperfusion (IR) injury is a major goal in patients presenting with an acute myocardial infarction. Pyroptosis is a novel form of cell death in which caspase 1 is activated and cleaves interleukin 1β. VX-785 is a highly selective, prodrug caspase 1 inhibitor that is also clinically available. It has been shown to be protective against acute IR in vivo rat model, and therefore might be a promising possibility for future cardioprotective therapy...

Apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I), the main structural and functional protein of HDL particles, is cardioprotective, but also highly sensitive to proteolytic cleavage. Here we investigated the effect of cardiac mast cell activation and ensuing chymase secretion on apoA-I degradation using isolated rat hearts in the Langendorff perfusion system. Cardiac mast cells were activated by injection of compound 48/80 into the coronary circulation or by low-flow myocardial ischemia, after which lipid-free apoA-I was injected, and collected in the coronary effluent for cleavage analysis...

BACKGROUND: The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) plays critical roles in growth regulation and metabolism reprogramming. AMPK activation protects cells against apoptosis from injury in different cell and animal models. However, its function in necroptosis remains largely unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: In the current study, we demonstrated that AMPK was activated upon necroptosis induction and protected mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and cardiomyocytes from N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) induced necroptosis...

AIM: Selenoprotein T (SelT or SELENOT) is a novel thioredoxin-like enzyme whose genetic ablation in mice results in early embryonic lethality. SelT exerts an essential cytoprotective action during development and after injury through its redox-active catalytic site. The present study aims to determine the expression and regulation of SelT in the mammalian heart in normal and pathological conditions, and to evaluate the cardioprotective effect of a SelT-derived peptide, SelT43-52(PSELT) encompassing the redox motif which is key to its function, against ischemia/reperfusion(I/R) injury...

Therapies addressing multiple stages of Plasmodium falciparum life cycle are highly desirable for implementing malaria elimination strategies. MMV019918 (1, 1-[5-(4-bromo-2-chlorophenyl)furan-2-yl]-N-[(piperidin-4-yl)methyl]methanamine) was selected from the MMV Malaria Box for its dual activity against both asexual stages and gametocytes. In-depth structure-activity relationship studies and cytotoxicity evaluation led to the selection of 25 for further biological investigation. The potential transmission blocking activity of 25 versus P...

Volatile anesthetic preconditioning has been shown to be a potent way to provide myocardium protection against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury; however, this cardioprotection is lost in senescent animal models and elderly patients. NFkB-regulated genes have been linked to myocardial I/R injury and anesthetic preconditioning. Here, we investigated NFkB activation related to anesthetic preconditioning in aging rat myocardium. Isolated, Langendorff perfused rat hearts from Fischer 344 male rats, 24 months old, were randomly assigned to one of the three groups...

Remifentanil preconditioning (RPC) exerts protection in normal hearts, but has not been investigated in heart failure. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of RPC in a chronic failing rat heart model and the mechanisms involving mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) and Bcl-2 protein family. The doxorubicin induced failing rat hearts were subjected to 30min ischemia / 120min reperfusion (IR) with or without RPC by using Langendorff apparatus. RPC was induced by three cycles of 5min remifentanil / 5min drug-free perfusion before IR, with three different concentrations: 25, 50 and 100μg/l...

Bioengineering cardiac tissue constructs with adult cardiomyocytes may help treat adult heart defects and injury. In this study, we fabricated cardiac tissue constructs by seeding adult rat cardiomyocytes on a fibrin gel matrix and analyzed the electromechanical properties of the formed cardiac tissue constructs. Adult rat cardiomyocytes were isolated with a collagenase type II buffer using an optimized Langendorff perfusion system. Cardiac tissue constructs were fabricated using either indirect plating with cardiomyocytes that were cultured for 1 week and dedifferentiated or with freshly isolated cardiomyocytes...

This research is designed to test the hypothesis that elevated homocysteine (Hcy) levels in vivo, caused by a deficit in vitamin B complex, promote changes in cardiac function and redox status that lead to heart failure. In order to conduct the study, we used adult male Wistar albino rats (n=30; 4 weeks old; 100±15 g body weight). Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) in these animals was achieved by dietary manipulation. For 4 weeks, the animals were fed with a standard rodent chow (control - CF), a diet enriched in methionine with no deficiency in B vitamins (i...

Statins are effective in management of dyslipidaemia, and a cornerstone of CVD prevention strategies. However, the impacts of their pleiotropic effects on other cardiovascular risk factors and myocardial responses to infarction are not well characterised. We hypothesised that pravastatin treatment in obesity improves lipid profiles, insulin-resistance and myocardial resistance to ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Wistar rats were fed a control (C) chow or high carbohydrate and fat diet (HCFD) for 16 weeks with vehicle or pravastatin (prava 7...

Background: Previously, we have demonstrated the cardioprotective effect of interleukin (IL)-11 in animal models of acute coronary syndrome. In this study, we sought to evaluate its cardioprotective potential during prolonged hypothermic global ischemia and subsequent reperfusion using a rat heart donor model. Methods: IL-11 was administered intravenously 10 minutes before harvesting the rat heart. The hearts were preserved in cold (4 °C) Krebs-Henseleit buffer for 6 hours, and then attached to a Langendorff perfusion apparatus and reperfused with an oxygenated Krebs-Henseleit solution containing IL-11...

BACKGROUND & PURPOSE: Antiarrhythmic β-blockers are used in patients at risk of myocardial ischaemia, but the survival benefit and mechanisms are unclear. We hypothesised that β-blockers do not prevent ventricular fibrillation (VF), but instead inhibit the ability of catecholamines to facilitate ischaemia-induced VF, limiting the scope of their usefulness. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: ECGs were analysed from ischaemic Langendorff-perfused rat hearts perfused with adrenoceptor antagonists and/or exogenous catecholamines (313 nM noradrenaline+75 nM adrenaline; CATs) in a blinded and randomised study...

Earlier literature underlines that oxidative stress plays a major role in the pathology of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM), diabetes mellitus (DM), fibrosis and hypertrophy which could adversely affect the normal cardiac function. However, the contributory role of oxidative stress in I/R pathology of heart with pre-existing abnormalities or diseases like DM and DCM remains to be explored. I/R injury was induced in normal (normal diet), DM (normal diet + streptozotocin: multiple low dose of 30mg/kg) and DCM (high fat diet (40% fat) + streptozotocin: multiple low dose of 30mg/kg) rat hearts using Langendorff isolated heart perfusion apparatus...
