Protective anti-inflammatory effect of ADAMTS13 on myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury in mice.

Coronary heart disease is a major cause of death in the western world. Although essential for successful recovery, reperfusion of ischemic myocardium is inevitably associated with reperfusion injury. To investigate a potential protective role of ADAMTS13, a protease cleaving von Willebrand factor multimers, during myocardial ischemia/reperfusion, we used a mouse model of acute myocardial infarction. We found that Adamts13(-/-) mice developed larger myocardial infarctions than wild-type control mice, whereas treatment of wild-type mice with recombinant human ADAMTS13 (rhADAMTS13) led to smaller infarctions. The protective effect of ADAMTS13 was further confirmed by a significant reduction of cardiac troponin-I release and less myocardial apoptosis in mice that received rhADAMTS13 compared with controls. Platelets adherent to the blood vessel wall were observed in few areas in the heart samples from mice treated with vehicle and were not detected in samples from mice treated with rhADAMTS13. However, we observed a 9-fold reduction in number of neutrophils infiltrating ischemic myocardium in mice that were treated with rhADAMTS13, suggesting a potent anti-inflammatory effect of ADAMTS13 during heart injury. Our data show that ADAMTS13 reduces myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury in mice and indicate that rhADAMTS13 could be of therapeutic value to limit myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury.

Predictors of Microvascular Reperfusion After Myocardial Infarction.

Curr Cardiol Rep 2021 Feb 23;23(3):21. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

West of Scotland Regional Heart and Lung Centre, Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Glasgow, UK.

Purpose Of Review: In acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), successful restoration of blood flow in the infarct-related coronary artery may not secure effective myocardial reperfusion. The mortality and morbidity associated with acute MI remain significant. Microvascular obstruction (MVO) represents failed microvascular reperfusion. Read More

Necrostatin-1 Analog DIMO Exerts Cardioprotective Effect against Ischemia Reperfusion Injury by Suppressing Necroptosis via Autophagic Pathway in Rats.

Pharmacology 2021 Feb 23:1-13. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Neuropsychiatric Diseases and College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Department of Pharmacology and Laboratory of Cerebrovascular Pharmacology, College of Pharmaceutical Science, Soochow University, Suzhou, China.

Aim: It has been reported that necrostatin-1 (Nec-1) is a specific necroptosis inhibitor that could attenuate programmed cell death induced by myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. This study aimed to observe the effect and mechanism of novel Nec-1 analog (Z)-5-(3,5-dimethoxybenzyl)-2-imine-1-methylimidazolin-4-1 (DIMO) on myocardial I/R injury.

Methods: Male SD rats underwent I/R injury with or without different doses of DIMO (1, 2, or 4 mg/kg) treatment. Read More

Hydrogen gas inhalation alleviates myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury by the inhibition of oxidative stress and NLRP3-mediated pyroptosis in rats.

Life Sci 2021 Feb 20:119248. Epub 2021 Feb 20.

Department of Cardiology, The Fourth Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, Harbin 150000, China. Electronic address:

Aims: Reperfusion therapy is the most common and effective treatment against ischemic heart disease (IHD), but the process inflicts massive ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury for which no treatment exists. Notably, reperfusion after ischemia causes ischemia/reperfusion injury (IR injury) and the "no-reflow" phenomenon seriously affecting the therapeutic effects in clinical practice. The principle purpose of this study is to validate the effect of hydrogen gas on IHD and further explore the mechanism of hydrogen gas in alleviating myocardial I/R injury and no-reflow phenomenon.

The Protective Role of Bmal1-Regulated Autophagy Mediated by HDAC3/SIRT1 Pathway in Myocardial Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury of Diabetic Rats.

Cardiovasc Drugs Ther 2021 Feb 23. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Department of Anesthesiology, Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, Wuhan, 430060, Hubei, China.

Purpose: Histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3) and silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1) are histone deacetylases that regulate important metabolic pathways and play important roles in diabetes and myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury. In this study, we explored the protective mechanism of Bmal1-regulated autophagy mediated by the HDAC3/SIRT1 pathway in myocardial IR injury of diabetic rats.

Methods And Results: Type 1 diabetes was established by administering an intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin. Read More

Interleukin 35 protects cardiomyocytes following ischemia/reperfusion-induced apoptosis via activation of mitochondrial STAT3.

Acta Biochim Biophys Sin (Shanghai) 2021 Feb 23. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Department of Cardiology, State Key Laboratory of Organ Failure Research, Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, Guangdong 510515, China.

Mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mtROS)-induced apoptosis has been suggested to contribute to myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury. Interleukin 35 (IL-35), a novel anti-inflammatory cytokine, has been shown to protect the myocardium and inhibit mtROS production. However, its effect on cardiomyocytes upon exposure to hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) damage has not yet been elucidated. Read More
