BACKGROUND: Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) significantly contributes to overall myocardial damage. As a consequence of I/R injury in the heart, the high-temperature requirement protein A2 (HtrA2) is released from the mitochondrial intermembrane space of cardiomyocytes to the cytoplasm, whereupon it induces apoptosis. METHODS: Serum was obtained from STEMI (n=37), non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) (n=20), stable coronary artery disease (CAD) (n=17) and patients with CAD excluded (n=9)...

Phosphorylated proteins in ovine muscle induced by salt curing were well investigated. Ten topside muscles of crossbred sheep were ground, mixed and divided into two groups, which were cured for 16h with 0% and 3% NaCl, respectively. Muscle proteins of two cured groups were analyzed by two-dimensional electrophoresis coupled with Pro-Q Diamond and SYPRO Ruby staining. The differential phosphorylated proteins were determined using LC-MS/MS and the UniProt database. Ten different phosphoproteins (>1.5 fold) induced by salting were identified, including triosephosphate isomerase, glycogen phosphorylase, creatine kinase M-type, myoglobin, troponin T fast skeletal muscle type, actin, myosin light chain 1/3, tropomyosin beta chain, etc...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and their secreted exosomes exert a cardioprotective role in jeopardized myocardium. However, the specific effects and underlying mechanisms of exosomes derived from adipose-derived MSCs (ADMSCs) on myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury remain largely unclear. In this study, ADMSC-derived exosomes (ADMSCs-ex) were administrated into the rats subjected to I/R injury and H9c2 cells exposed to Hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R). Consequently, administration of ADMSCs-ex significantly reduced I/R-induced myocardial infarction, accompanied with a decrease in serum levels of creatine kinase-myocardial band (CK-MB), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and cardiac troponin I (cTnI)...

Aconiti Lateralis Radix Praeparata ("Fuzi" in Chinese) in combination with Zingiberis Rhizoma ("Ganjiang" in Chinese) is commonly applied for the treatment of heart failure for thousands of years in China. However, its therapeutic mechanism is still poorly defined. This study aimed to investigate whether the compatibility of Fuzi and Ganjiang can protect rats with acute heart failure by enhancing mitochondrial biogenesis via Sirt1/PGC-1α signaling pathway. Hemodynamic parameters, including heart rate and left ventricular maximal rate of pressure rise and decline, were recorded in rats with acute heart failure induced by Propafenone hydrochloride...

Enzyme-linked and electrochemiluminescence immunoassays were developed for quantification of amino (N-) terminal fragments of the skeletal muscle protein titin (N-ter titin) and qualified for use in detection of urinary N-ter titin excretion. Urine from normal subjects contained a small but measurable level of N-ter titin (1.0 ± 0.4 ng/ml). A 365-fold increase (365.4 ± 65.0, P = 0.0001) in urinary N-ter titin excretion was seen in Duchene muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients. Urinary N-ter titin was also evaluated in dystrophin deficient rodent models...
