Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) channels expressed in sensory nerves may regulate vascular tone and cardiovascular function via their anti-inflammatory effects by releasing neuropeptide calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). Inflammation plays a role in the progression of cardiac hypertrophy and TRPV1 activation may be key to cardiac inflammatory processes. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that TRPV1 modulates inflammatory processes to protect the heart from pressure overload-induced hypertrophy and inflammatory responses...

The molecular pathophysiology of heart failure, which is one of the leading causes of mortality, is not yet fully understood. Heart failure can be regarded as a systemic syndrome of aging-related phenotypes. Wnt/β-catenin signaling and the p53 pathway, both of which are key regulators of aging, have been demonstrated to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of heart failure. Circulating C1q was identified as a novel activator of Wnt/β-catenin signaling, promoting systemic aging-related phenotypes including sarcopenia and heart failure...

Severe heart pathology upon virus infection is closely associated with the immunological equipment of the host. Since there is no specific treatment available, current research focuses on identifying new drug targets to positively modulate predisposing immune factors. Utilizing a murine model with high susceptibility to coxsackievirus B3-induced myocarditis, this study describes ONX 0914-an immunoproteasome-specific inhibitor-as highly protective during severe heart disease. Represented by reduced heart infiltration of monocytes/macrophages and diminished organ damage, ONX 0914 treatment reversed fulminant pathology...

We previously reported that EGFR tyrosine kinase (EGFRtk) activity and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress are enhanced in type 2 diabetic (T2D) mice and cause vascular dysfunction. In the present study, we determined the in vivo contribution of EGFRtk and ER stress in acute myocardial infarction induced by acute ischemia (40 min)-reperfusion (24 h) (I/R) injury in T2D (db-/db-) mice. We treated db-/db- mice with EGFRtk inhibitor (AG1478, 10 mg/kg/day) for 2 weeks. Mice were then subjected to myocardial I/R injury...

We found that the anticoagulant plasma protease, activated protein C (APC), stimulates the energy sensor kinase, AMPK, in the stressed heart by activating protease-activated receptor 1 (PAR1) on cardiomyocytes. Wild-type (WT) and AMPK-kinase dead (KD) transgenic mice were subjected to transverse aortic constriction (TAC) surgery. The results demonstrated that while no phenotypic differences can be observed between WT and AMPK-KD mice under normal physiological conditions, AMPK-KD mice exhibit significantly larger hearts after 4 weeks of TAC surgery...

BACKGROUND: The transport of lipids from the artery wall is one of the most essential anti-atherogenic functions of high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Recent reports of changes in the HDL composition, during myocardial infarction (MI), suggest that this function may be altered. METHODS: Forty-one consecutive patients with ST-segment elevation MI enrolled at the Brasilia Heart Study were selected. The following HDL-related measures were determined upon admission (D1) and on the fifth day (D5) after MI: C-reactive protein, CETP and PLTP activity, HDL composition, efflux of cholesterol from J774 macrophages to HDL, and transfer of unesterified and esterified cholesterol, triglycerides and phospholipids from a donor nanoemulsion to HDL...

Inflammatory and fibrotic responses to myocardial damage are essential for cardiac repair; however, these responses often result in extensive fibrotic remodeling with impaired systolic function. Recent reports have suggested that such acute phase responses provide a favorable environment for endogenous cardiac regeneration, which is mainly driven by the division of pre-existing cardiomyocytes (CMs). Existing CMs in mammals can re-acquire proliferative activity after substantial cardiac damage, and elements other than CMs in the physiological and/or pathological environment, such as hypoxia, angiogenesis, and the polarity of infiltrating macrophages, have been reported to regulate replication...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate whether polarimetry, performed using a modified optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) system, can improve the assessment of histological features relevant to characterizing human coronary atherosclerosis. BACKGROUND: The microscopic structure and organization of the arterial wall influence the polarization of the infrared light used by OFDI. Modification of the OFDI apparatus, along with recently developed image reconstruction methods, permits polarimetric measurements simultaneously with conventional OFDI cross-sectional imaging through standard intravascular imaging catheters...

Viral myocarditis is one of the major causes of congestive heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy. Recent reports have demonstrated an essential role of cytokines, like interleukin-13 (IL-13), in the pathogenesis of viral myocarditis, while the underlying mechanisms remain poorly defined. Here, using a coxsackie virus B3 (CVB3)-infection model in BALB/C mice, we showed that IL-13 protected mouse heart function in viral myocarditis, seemingly through reduction in T lymphocyte immunity and induction of M2 macrophage polarization...

Excessive mechanical stretch induces production of proinflammatory mediators in cardiac fibroblasts, which could act as inflammatory supporter cells in heart failure. Accumulation evidence and our previous studies suggest that serum-glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1) contributes to cardiac remodeling and fibrosis, development of heart failure. However, the role and mechanism of SGK1 in mechanical stretch-induced inflammation of cardiac fibroblasts remain unclear. Here, cardiac fibroblasts isolated from wild-type (WT) and SGK1 knockout (SGK1-/-) mice were stimulated by 18% cyclic stretch, under static condition as the control...

BACKGROUND: Image-guided high intensity focused ultrasound has been used as an extracorporeal cardiac pacing tool and to enhance homing of stem cells to targeted tissues. However, molecular changes in the myocardium after sonication have not been widely investigated. Magnetic-resonance (MR)-guided pulsed focused ultrasound (pFUS) was targeted to the rat myocardium over a range of pressures and the microenvironmental and histological effects were evaluated over time. METHODS: Eight-to-ten-week-old Sprague-Dawley rats received T2-weighted MR images to target pFUS to the left ventricular and septum without cardiac or respiratory gating...

Rev-erb α, known as nuclear receptor 1D1 (NR1D1), regulates circadian rhythm, modulates glucose and lipid metabolism, and inflammatory response. However, little is known about the effect of Rev-erb agonist on the progression of myocardial infarction (MI) and heart failure. To investigate it, wild-type male mice underwent sham-operation or permanent ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery to create MI model. Rev-erb agonist SR9009 (100 mg/kg/day) or vehicle was intraperitoneally administered...

Atherosclerosis, the deadliest disease in the United States, arises due to the build up of plaques in the arteries as a result of excessive cholesterol deposition and an impaired cholesterol removal process. High density lipoproteins (HDL), popularly known as "good cholesterol", are naturally occurring nano-sized particles that, along with apolipoproteins, are deployed to maintain cholesterol homeostasis in the body. Both cholesterol efflux, from the fat-laden macrophages in the arteries, and intracellular lipid transport, to deliver cholesterol to the mitochondria of liver cells for metabolism, hold key responsibilities to maintain healthy lipid levels inside the body...

The internal mammary artery (IMA) is the most durable conduit for bypassing the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). However, little is known about how the IMA reacts histologically to stent implantation. From CVPath stent registry (1048 lesions, 614 cases), we obtained 4 stent lesions (2 bare metal stents, 2 drug-eluting stents) involving IMA grafts. The mean age of our patients was 63 years and the duration of stent implantation in the IMA ranged from 5 days to 5 years...

In dramatic contrast to the poor repair outcomes for humans and rodent models such as mice, salamanders and some fish species are able to completely regenerate heart tissue following tissue injury, at any life stage. This capacity for complete cardiac repair provides a template for understanding the process of regeneration and for developing strategies to improve human cardiac repair outcomes. Using a cardiac cryo-injury model we show that heart regeneration is dependent on the innate immune system, as macrophage depletion during early time points post-injury results in regeneration failure...

We studied in vivo modifying effect of autotransfusion of human bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells on ROS generation and production of cytokines (TNFα,TNFβ, IL-1α, IL-10, IFNγ, and GM-CSF) and PGE2 by mononuclear cells of patients (N=21) with chronic heart failure. These parameters were evaluated prior to (control) and after (immediately and on day 14) intravenous administration of stromal cells in doses of 100-200×106. Immediately after autotransfusion, significant increase of in vitro zymosan-induced chemiluminescence of blood mononuclear cells from 10 patients was observed...

The molecular mechanisms operating in human organ transplant rejection are best inferred from the mRNAs expressed in biopsies because the corresponding proteins often have low expression and short half-lives, while small non-coding RNAs lack specificity. Associations should be characterized in a population that rigorously identifies T cell-mediated (TCMR) and antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR). This is best achieved in kidney transplant biopsies, but the results are generalizable to heart, lung, or liver transplants...

BACKGROUND: The peptide hormone relaxin-2 (RLX) exerts beneficial effects during myocardial ischemia, but functional data on lower-dose RLX in myocardial infarction (MI) is lacking. Therefore, we investigated the impact of 75μg/kg/d RLX treatment on electrical vulnerability and left ventricular function in a mouse model of MI. METHODS AND RESULTS: Standardized cryoinfarction of the left anterior ventricular wall was performed in mice. A two week treatment period with vehicle or RLX via subcutaneously implanted osmotic minipumps was started immediately after MI...
