ABSTRACT

Objective: To test the feasibility of drag-reducing polymers (DRP) for improving coronary microcirculation in a canine model in order to provide the experimental basis for treating myocardial microcirculation dysfunction. Methods: A total of 8 dogs received open-chest surgery and they had intravenous injections, in turn, with adenosine (ADN), DRP 250 mg/L and DRP+ADN. The function y=A × (1-e-βt) was used to calculate the myocardium capillary volume (A value), capillary velocity (β value) and myocardial blood lfow (A ? β value) by myocardial contrast echocardiography. Results: With DRP infusion, the A value in experimental canine was similar to the baseline condition,P>0.05; while theβ value and A ? β value were signiifcantly increased as (0.57 ± 0.10) 1/s vs (0.23 ± 0.03) 1/s,P0.05. Conclusion: DRP improved coronary microcirculation primarily by modulating the β value in experimental canine model, and hopefully, this unique hemodynamics could provide a new approach for treating myocardial microcirculation dysfunction.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the partial safety of the recombinant adenovirus containing the triple-point mutants HIF-1αgene (Ad-HIF-1α-Trip)transfection in a rabbit model of hind limb ischemia. Methods After ligation of left femoral artery, 22 New Zealand whites rabbits were randomly divided into 3 groups: saline group(n=6), Ad-Null group(n=6) and Ad-HIF-1α-Trip group(n=10). After operation, saline, Ad-Null and Ad-HIF-1αwere injected intramuscularly respectively. The expression of transferred HIF-1αat mRNA level in the ischemic skeletal muscle and other important organs were detected by Real-time PCR 10 days after gene transfection. The body temperature, weight, blood, liver and renal function, as well as the myocardial enzymes were detected before operation, and on the 3th, 7th, 14th and 28th day after gene transfection, so that pathological changes could be observed. Results On the 10th day after gene transfection, obvious expressions of HIF-1αat mRNA level in the ischemic limb were found, but no expression in other important organs was detected in Ad-HIF-1α-Trip group. The blood routine, liver and renal function were all in the normal range (P > 0.05). No abnormalities were found in heart, liver, kidney, and lung HE transfection in Ad-HIF-1α-Trip group. Conclusion Single intramuscular injection of Ad-HIF-1α-Trip can be expressed obviously in the ischemic limb without detected damage of liver , cardiac and kidney.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the effects of a recombinant adenovirus-mediated triple mutant hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) on the proliferation and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in human microvascular endothelial cells (hMVECs).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The adenovirus vector of the triple mutant HIF-1α (Ad-HIF-1α(564/402/803)), adenovirus vector of wild-type HIF-1α (Ad-HIF-1α(nature)), Ad-lacZ and Ad-Null were amplified in HEK293A cells, and the adenoviruses were purified and titrated. Dual luciferase reporter assay system was employed to detect the transcriptional activities of wild-type and triple mutant HIF-1α. After infection of the hMVECs with the adenoviruses, the cellular protein expressions of HIF-1α and VEGF were detected using Western blotting, and the cell proliferation was assessed by MTS assay.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The transcriptional activity of the triple mutant HIF-1α was significantly higher than that of wildtype HIF-1α in the infected hMVECs (P<0.001). The protein levels of HIF-1α and VEGF in cells infected with Ad-HIF-1α(564/402/803) were significantly higher than those in cells infected with other adenoviruses, and HIF-1α dose-dependently up-regulated VEGF protein expression. The absorbance was significantly higher in Ad-HIF-1α(564/402/803) group than in the other groups (P<0.01) on the third and fifth days after infection.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The recombinant adenovirus-mediated triple mutant HIF-1α expression is stable under normoxic condition. The triple mutant HIF-1α can up-regulate the expression of VEGF protein in hMVECs to promote the cell proliferation.</p>

ABSTRACT

Objective The current study aimed to evaluate whether the induction of macrophage inflammatory cytokines by Ox-LDL is related to the expression of ABCA1 pathway. Methods After THP1/PMA macrophages were transfected with ABCA1 antisense oligonucleotides (100nmol/L) followed by treatment with Ox-LDL (30mg/L), the expressions of ABCA1, ICAM-1 and MCP-1 mRNA and protein were determined by real-time fluorescent quantitative RT-PCR, Western blot or ELISA. Results Ox-LDL induced expressions of ABCA1, ICAM-1, and MCP-1 at both mRNA and protein levels from THP1/PMA macrophages. Transfection with ABCA1 antisense oligonucleotides reduced ABCA1 mRNA levels after 3 and 6 hours and protein levels after 12 and 24 hours. The expression of ICAM-1 and MCP-1 induced by Ox-LDL was also decreased after inhibition of ABCA1 protein expression by ABCA1 antisense oligonucleotide decreased. Conclusion The induction of macrophage inflammatory cytokines by Ox-LDL is partially dependent on expression of ABCA1. Our studies disclose new functions of ABCA1 in macrophages.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the relationship between myocardial perfusion and diastolic function with velocity vector imaging (VVI) combined with myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) in dog models of coronary artery stenosis at rest and stress. Methods Different stenoses in anterior descending branch were made in 8 dogs. Before and after coronary artery stenosis, VVI evaluation was made on short axis image, then MCE were performed in the left ventricular mastoid muscle section at rest and in the peak dose of dobutamine. The myocardial blood flow A·β value and peak diastolic strain rate (SR_(dia)) on the direction of the circumference of the short view were measured, and the relationship between them was analyzed. Results At rest, no significant difference of A·β value nor SR_(dia) was found between the stenotic bed and normal bed when coronary stenosis was mild or moderate. However, A·β value and SR_(dia) of the stenotic bed were smaller than those in the normal bed when coronary stenosis was severe (P<0.05). At dobutamine stress, A·β value and SR_(dia) of the stenotic bed were already less than those in the normal bed when coronary stenosis was mild or moderate. A·β values and SR_(dia) of the stenotic bed decreased further compared to the normal bed (P<0.05) when coronary artery was severe. At both rest and stress, the standard A·β value was strongly correlated with SR_(dia) (r_(rest)=0.57,r_(stress)=0.72,P<0.01). Conclusion VVI can not only evaluate the diastolic function of myocardial segments on the short axis view, but also reflect changes of myocardial perfusion to a certain extent.
