Over the past decade, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has emerged as an important mechanism involved in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases including heart failure. Cardiac therapy based on ER stress modulation is viewed as a promising avenue toward effective therapies for the diseased heart. Here, we tested whether sirtuin-1 (SIRT1), a NAD(+)-dependent deacetylase, participates in modulating ER stress response in the heart. Using cardiomyocytes and adult-inducible SIRT1 knockout mice, we demonstrate that SIRT1 inhibition or deficiency increases ER stress-induced cardiac injury, whereas activation of SIRT1 by the SIRT1-activating compound STAC-3 is protective...

Sericin has been implicated in lower cholesterolemic effect due to its properties with several mechanisms. Mitochondria are one of the most important targets to be affected in high blood cholesterol and glucose conditions. The protective role of sericin on mitochondria remains doubtful. To examine this role, electron microscopic, histopathologic, immunohistochemical, and biochemical studies were performed in a high-cholesterol diet/streptozotocin rat model. The results demonstrated that sericin reduced blood cholesterol without hypoglycemic effect...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. AF is thought to be triggered by ectopic beats, originating primarily in the myocardial sleeves surrounding the pulmonary veins (PVs). The mechanisms underlying these cardiac arrhythmias remain unclear. To investigate this, frozen sections of heart and lung tissue from adult rats without arrhythmia were obtained in different planes, stained with Masson's trichrome, and immunolabeled for connexin 43 (Cx43), caveolin-3 (Cav3), hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated channel 4 (HCN4), Nav1...

BACKGROUND: The longevity regulator Sirtuin 1 is an NAD(+)-dependent histone deacetylase that regulates endoplasmic reticulum stress and influences cardiomyocyte apoptosis during cardiac contractile dysfunction induced by aging. The mechanism underlying Sirtuin 1 function in cardiac contractile dysfunction related to aging has not been completely elucidated. METHODS: We evaluated cardiac contractile function, endoplasmic reticulum stress, apoptosis, and oxidative stress in 6- and 12month-old cardiac-specific Sirtuin 1 knockout (Sirt1(-/-)) and control (Sirt1(f/f)) mice using western blotting and immunohistochemistry...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the roles and mechanisms of endogenous hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM). METHODS: Blood of DCM patients included in the study were collected. The model of DCM rats was established using streptozotocin (STZ) injection. Cardiac lipotoxicity in vitro models were established using 500μM palmitic acid (PA) treatment for 24h in AC16 cardiomyocytes. Endogenous H2S production in plasma, culture supernatant and heart was measured by sulphur ion-selective electrode assay...

Apelin is the endogenous ligand of the G protein-coupled receptor, APJ. Recently, researches indicate that the apelin/APJ system involves in myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (MIRI), which is a common pathophysiological process in patients with heart diseases and therapies. The reperfusion induces the expression of apelin and APJ receptor, which play an important role in cardioprotection of MIRI. The apelin/APJ system alleviates MIRI mainly by decreasing mitochondrial reactive oxygen species and delaying the opening of mitochondrial permeability transition pores, which induce the initiation of mitophagy...

Hearts of Antarctic icefishes (suborder Notothenioidei, family Channichthyidae) have higher densities of mitochondria, and mitochondria have higher densities of phospholipids, compared to red-blooded notothenioids. Glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (GPAT) catalyzes the rate-limiting step in glycerolipid biosynthesis. There are four isoforms of GPAT in vertebrates; GPAT1 and GPAT2 are localized to the outer mitochondrial membrane, whereas GPAT3 and GPAT4 are localized to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane...

We have developed a charge-mediated fusion method to reconstitute the sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) in giant unilamellar vesicles (GUV). Intracellular Ca(2+) transport by SERCA controls key processes in human cells such as proliferation, signaling, and contraction. Small-molecule effectors of SERCA are urgently needed as therapeutics for Ca(2+) dysregulation in human diseases including cancer, diabetes, and heart failure. Here we report the development of a method for efficiently reconstituting SERCA in GUV, and we describe a streamlined protocol based on optimized parameters (e...

As a newly identified adiponectin paralog, C1q/TNF-related protein 9 (CTRP9) reduces myocardial ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury through partially understood mechanisms. In the present study, we sought to identify the role of endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) in CTRP9 induced cardioprotection in diabetic heart. Isolated hearts from high-fat-diet (HFD) induced type 2 diabetic Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to ex vivo IR protocol via a Langendorff apparatus at the presence of globular CTRP9. CTRP9 significantly improved post-IR heart function and reduced cardiac infarction, cardiomyocytes apoptosis, Caspase-3, Caspase-9, Caspase-12, TNF-α expression, and lactate dehydrogenase activity...

Myocardial infarction is caused by insufficient coronary blood supply, which leads to myocardial damage and eventually the heart failure. Molecular mechanisms associated with the loss of cardiomyocytes during myocardial infarction (MI) and ischemia-related cardiac diseases are not yet fully understood. Nogo-C is an endoplasmic reticulum protein ubiquitously expressed in tissues including in the heart, however, the cardiac function of Nogo-C is still unknown. In the present study, we found that Nogo-C was upregulated in mouse hearts after MI, and hypoxic treatments also increased Nogo-C protein level in cardiomyocytes...

Intracellular Ca(2+) signalling processes are fundamental to muscle contraction, neurotransmitter release, cell growth and apoptosis. Release of Ca(2+) from the intracellular stores is supported by a series of ion channels in sarcoplasmic or endoplasmic reticulum (SR/ER). Among them, two isoforms of the trimeric intracellular cation (TRIC) channel family, named TRIC-A and TRIC-B, modulate the release of Ca(2+) through the ryanodine receptor or inositol triphosphate receptor, and maintain the homeostasis of ions within SR/ER lumen...

Using high-throughput screening we identified small molecules that suppress superoxide and/or H2O2 production during reverse electron transport through mitochondrial respiratory complex I (site IQ) without affecting oxidative phosphorylation (suppressors of site IQ electron leak, "S1QELs"). S1QELs diminished endogenous oxidative damage in primary astrocytes cultured at ambient or low oxygen tension, showing that site IQ is a normal contributor to mitochondrial superoxide-H2O2 production in cells. They diminished stem cell hyperplasia in Drosophila intestine in vivo and caspase activation in a cardiomyocyte cell model driven by endoplasmic reticulum stress, showing that superoxide-H2O2 production by site IQ is involved in cellular stress signaling...

4-Sodium phenylbutyrate (PBA) has been reported to inhibit endoplasmic reticulum stress and histone deacetylation (HDAC), both of which are novel therapeutic targets for cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. However, it is unclear whether PBA can improve heart function. Here, we tested the effects of PBA and some other HDAC inhibitors on cardiac dysfunction induced by pressure overload. Transverse aortic constriction (TAC) was performed on male C57BL/6 mice. PBA treatment (100 mg/kg, 6 weeks) unexpectedly led to a higher mortality, exacerbated cardiac remodelling and dysfunction...

β-Hydroxybutyrate, a ketone body that is used as an energy source in organs such as the brain, muscle, and heart when blood glucose is low, is produced by fatty acid oxidation in the liver under the fasting state. Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is linked with the generation of intracellular reactive oxygen species and the accumulation of misfolded protein in the ER. ER stress is known to induce the NOD-like receptor protein 3 inflammasome, which mediates activation of the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-1β, whose maturation is caspase-1-dependent...

The bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a main culprit responsible for cardiac dysfunction in sepsis. This study examined whether resveratrol could protect against LPS-induced cardiac dysfunction by improving the sarcoplasmic endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA2a) activity. Echocardiographic parameters, cardiomyocyte contractile and Ca(2+) transient properties, markers for cardiac inflammation, cell death, and oxidative stress, SERCA2a activity, and the ratios of phospholamban (PLB) monomer to oligomer were measured...

BACKGROUND: In our previous study, we found significant differences in the mRNA and microRNA (miRNA) levels among hypertensive patients with different degrees of vascular endothelial cells damage. These differences were closely associated with endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS)-related proteins. Moreover, compared to the control group, the expression of transcription factor activating factor 4 (ATF4) was also found to be significantly different in the hypertensive patients with different degrees of vascular endothelial cells damage groups...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac arrhythmias represent a significant problem globally, leading to cerebrovascular accidents, myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac death. There is increasing evidence to suggest that increased oxidative stress from reactive oxygen species (ROS), which is elevated in conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, can lead to arrhythmogenesis. METHOD: A literature review was undertaken to screen for articles that investigated the effects of ROS on cardiac ion channel function, remodeling and arrhythmogenesis...

Judiciously tuning heart rates is critical for regular cardiovascular function. The fractal pattern of heartbeats - a multiscale regulation in instantaneous fluctuations - is well known for vertebrates. The most primitive heart system of the Drosophila provides a useful model to understand the evolutional origin of such a fractal pattern as well as the alterations of fractal pattern during diseased statuses. We developed a non-invasive visible optical heart rate recording system especially suitable for long-term recording by using principal component analysis (PCA) instead of fluorescence recording system to avoid the confounding effect from intense light irradiation...

BACKGROUND: It is known that statins possess beneficial cardioprotective effects irrespective of lipid-lowering action and that cardiac injury due ischemia/reperfusion is associated with Ca2+ dysregulation resulting in contractile dysfunction. OBJECTIVE: With this background, we tested a hypothesis that simvastatin influences signaling of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase IIδ (CaMKIIδ), a protein kinase regulating both Ca2+ homeostasis and thick filament function, and thereby might underlie the mitigation of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced cardiac dysfunction...

Diabetes and obesity are prevalent in westernized countries. In both conditions, excessive fatty acid uptake by cardiomyocytes induces cardiac lipotoxicity, an important mechanism contributing to diabetic cardiomyopathy. This study investigated the effect of calpain disruption on cardiac lipotoxicity. Cardiac-specific capns1 knockout mice and their wild-type littermates (male, age of 4weeks) were fed a high fat diet (HFD) or normal diet for 20weeks. HFD increased body weight, altered blood lipid profiles and impaired glucose tolerance comparably in both capns1 knockout mice and their wild-type littermates...
