Ankyrin-G mediates targeting of both Na and K channels to the rat cardiac intercalated disc.

We investigated targeting mechanisms of Na and K channels to the intercalated disk (ICD) of cardiomyocytes. Patch clamp and surface biotinylation data show reciprocal downregulation of each other's surface density. Mutagenesis of the Kir6.2 ankyrin binding site disrupts this functional coupling. Duplex patch clamping and Angle SICM recordings show that I and I functionally co-localize at the rat ICD, but not at the lateral membrane. Quantitative STORM imaging show that Na and K channels are localized close ...


Overexpression of miR-150 Inhibits the NF-κB Signal Pathway in Intervertebral Disc Degeneration through Targeting P2X7.

To elaborate the mechanism of miR-150 in the regulation of the NF-κB signal pathway in intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) by targeting P2X7.

Potential roles in cardiac physiology and pathology of the cation channel TRPV2 expressed in cardiac cells and cardiac macrophages: a mini-review.

TRPV2 is a well-conserved channel protein expressed in almost all tissues. Cardiomyocyte TRPV2 is expressed in the intercalated discs of the cardiac sarcomeres where it is involved in maintaining the proper mechanoelectric coupling and structure. It is also abundantly expressed in the intracellular pools, mainly the endoplasmic reticulum. Under pathological conditions, TRPV2 is translocated to the sarcolemma where it mediates an abnormal [Ca] entry that may contribute to disease progression. In addition, an...


Cardiac regeneration and remodelling of the cardiomyocyte cytoarchitecture.

Adult mammals are unable to regenerate their hearts after cardiac injury; largely due to the incapacity of cardiomyocytes to undergo cell division. However, mammalian embryonic and foetal cardiomyocytes, similar to cardiomyocytes from fish and amphibians during their entire life, exhibit robust replicative activity, which stops abruptly after birth and never significantly resumes. Converging evidence indicates that formation of the highly ordered and stable cytoarchitecture of mammalian mature cardiomyocyte...

Inhibition of N-type calcium channels in cardiac sympathetic neurons attenuates ventricular arrhythmogenesis in heart failure.

Cardiac sympathetic overactivation is an important trigger of ventricular arrhythmias in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Our previous study demonstrated that N-type calcium (Cav2.2) currents in cardiac sympathetic postganglionic (CSP) neurons were increased in CHF. This study investigated the contribution of Cav2.2 channels in cardiac sympathetic overactivation and ventricular arrhythmogenesis in CHF.

The acute response of the nucleus pulposus of the cervical intervertebral disc to three supine postures in an asymptomatic population.

The dynamic disc model refers to the ability of a spinal disc's position to be manipulated by body postures and movements. Research on lumbar discs has indicated movement of the anterior and posterior disc that correlates with posture of the spine. The aim of this study was to assess whether, despite its structural differences, the cervical disc responds to flexed and extended postures in a similar fashion to the lumbar disc.

CaMKII Modulates the Cardiac Transient Outward K Current through its Association with Kv4 Channels in Non-Caveolar Membrane Rafts.

To test whether the physiological regulation of the cardiac Kv4 channels by the Ca/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is restricted to lipid rafts and whether the interactions observed in rat cardiomyocytes also occur in the human ventricle.

Fibroblast growth factor homologous factors are potential ion channel modifiers associated with cardiac arrhythmias.

Stable electrical activity in cardiac myocytes is the basis of maintaining normal myocardial systolic and diastolic function. Cardiac ionic currents and their associated regulatory proteins are crucial to myocyte excitability and heart function. Fibroblast growth factor homologous factors (FHFs) are intracellular noncanonical fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) that are incapable of activating FGF receptors. The main functions of FHFs are to regulate ion channels and influence excitability, which are processes...

MiR-526b-3p mediates doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity by targeting STAT3 to inactivate VEGFA.

Doxorubicin (DOX), a wide-spectrum chemotherapeutic agent, is recognized to have cardiotoxic side effects when it is applied in hematological diseases and solid tumor management. However, the mechanisms behind the DOX-induced anomaly of vascular homeostasis remain mostly elusive. qRT-PCR and immumohistochemical staining indicated cardiac increase of miR-526b-3p, and decrease of CD31 and CD34 in DOX-treated mice. The regulatory function of miR-526b-3p on cardiac function and cardiac microvessel density was d...

Cardiomyocyte damage control in heart failure and the role of the sarcolemma.

The cardiomyocyte plasma membrane, termed the sarcolemma, is fundamental for regulating a myriad of cellular processes. For example, the structural integrity of the cardiomyocyte sarcolemma is essential for mediating cardiac contraction by forming microdomains such as the t-tubular network, caveolae and the intercalated disc. Significantly, remodelling of these sarcolemma microdomains is a key feature in the development and progression of heart failure (HF). However, despite extensive characterisation of th...

Impact of arrhythmogenic calmodulin variants on small conductance Ca -activated K (SK3) channels.

Calmodulin (CaM) is a ubiquitous Ca -sensing protein regulating many important cellular processes. Several CaM-associated variants have been identified in a small group of patients with cardiac arrhythmias. The mechanism remains largely unknown, even though a number of ion channels, including the ryanodine receptors and the L-type calcium channels have been shown to be functionally affected by the presence of mutant CaM. CaM is constitutively bound to the SK channel, which underlies the calcium-gated I cont...

Multiparametric MR Investigation of Proteoglycan Diffusivity, T Relaxation, and Concentration in an Ex Vivo Model of Intervertebral Disc Degeneration.

Proteoglycan (PG) is a major component of the intervertebral disc extracellular matrix (ECM) that acts to hydrate the disc nucleus. Early detection of PG degradation is valuable for both diagnosis and preclinical research of intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD).

Targeting Pathological Leak of Ryanodine Receptors: Preclinical Progress and the Potential Impact on Treatments for Cardiac Arrhythmias and Heart Failure.

: Type-2 ryanodine receptor (RyR2) located on the sarcoplasmic reticulum initiate systolic Ca transients within cardiomyocytes. Proper functioning of RyR2 is therefore crucial to the timing and force generated by cardiomyocytes within a healthy heart. Improper intracellular Ca handing secondary to RyR2 dysfunction is associated with a variety of cardiac pathologies including catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT), atrial fibrillation (AF), and heart failure (HF). Thus, RyR2 and its ass...

MiR-326 targets MDK to regulate the progression of cardiac hypertrophy through blocking JAK/STAT and MAPK signaling pathways.

Cardiac hypertrophy is a heart reaction to the increase of cardiac load, with the characteristics of increased expression of cardiac hypertrophy markers, enhanced protein synthesis, and enlarged cell area. However, molecular mechanisms in cardiac hypertrophy are still poorly substantiated. It has been reported that miRNAs can modulate human diseases, among which miR-326 has been reported as a biological regulator in human cancers, but its role in cardiac hypertrophy is rarely explored. This study focused on...

α7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor Mediates the Neuroprotection of Remote Ischemic Postconditioning in a Rat Model of Asphyxial Cardiac Arrest.

Remote ischemic postconditioning (RIPost) has been shown to reduce the ischemia-reperfusion injury of the heart and brain. However, the protection mechanisms have not yet been fully elucidated. We have observed that RIPost could alleviate the brain injury after cardiac arrest (CA). The aim of this study was to explore whether α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (α7nAChR) mediates the neuroprotection of RIPost in a rat model of asphyxial CA.

Metabolic regulation of Kv channels and cardiac repolarization by Kvβ2 subunits.

Voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels control myocardial repolarization. Pore-forming Kvα proteins associate with intracellular Kvβ subunits, which bind pyridine nucleotides with high affinity and differentially regulate channel trafficking, plasmalemmal localization and gating properties. Nevertheless, it is unclear how Kvβ subunits regulate myocardial K currents and repolarization. Here, we tested the hypothesis that Kvβ2 subunits regulate the expression of myocardial Kv channels and confer redox sens...

Posterior Percutaneous Endoscopic Technique Through Bilateral Translaminar Osseous Channels for Thoracic Spinal Stenosis Caused by Ossification of the Ligamentum Flavum Combined with Disc Herniation at the T10-11 Level: A Technical Note.

Cardiac overexpression of perilipin 2 induces atrial steatosis, connexin 43 remodeling, and atrial fibrillation in aged mice.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is prevalent in patients with obesity and diabetes, and such patients often exhibit cardiac steatosis. Since the role of cardiac steatosis in the induction of AF has not been elucidated, the present study was designed to explore the relation between cardiac steatosis and AF. Transgenic (Tg) mice with cardiac-specific overexpression of perilipin 2 (PLIN2) were housed in the laboratory for more than 12 months before the study. Electron microscopy of the atrium of PLIN2-Tg mice showed...

Intradural disc herniation at L4/5 level causing Cauda equina syndrome: A case report.

Intradural disc herniation has been documented rarely and the pathogenesis remains unclear. The region most frequently affected by intradural lumbar disc herniations is L4-5 level, and the average age of intradural disc herniations is between 50 and 60 years. Although magnetic resonance imaging is a valuable tool in the diagnosis of this disease, it is still difficult to make a definite diagnosis preoperatively.

Introduction of Disc Material into the Vertebral Canal by Fenestration of Thoracolumbar Discs Following Decompressive Surgery.

 Intervertebral disc extrusion is a common disease affecting chondrodystrophic dogs. It has been reported that fenestration of thoracolumbar intervertebral discs reduces recurrence of disc extrusion and is associated with a low complication rate. One complication reported is iatrogenic introduction of disc material into the canal directly following fenestration. This study aimed to ascertain if, and at what frequency, additional disc material may be introduced into the vertebral canal by fenestration of t...

Arrhythmia development during inhibition of small-conductance calcium-activated potassium channels in acute myocardial infarction in a porcine model.

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with intracellular Ca2+ build-up. In healthy ventricles, small conductance Ca2+-activated K+ (SK) channels are present but do not participate in repolarization. However, SK current is increased in chronic myocardial infarction and heart failure, and recently, SK channel inhibition was demonstrated to reduce arrhythmias in AMI rats. Hence, we hypothesized that SK channel inhibitors (NS8593 and AP14145) could reduce arrhythmia development during AMI in a porcine...

miR-24-3p induces human intervertebral disc degeneration by targeting insulin-like growth factor binding protein 5 and the ERK signaling pathway.

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) was associated with microRNA (miRNA) dysregulation. Therefore, we verified the hypothesis that miRNAs modulated IDD by affecting the insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 5 (IGFBP5)/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathway.

Emerging biomarkers for cardiac arrhythmias.

Cardiac arrhythmias are associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Recent advances in the pathophysiological understanding of cardiac arrhythmia indicate that inflammation, fibrosis, and even autoimmune mechanisms could facilitate the development of arrhythmias by interfering either with fibroblast activation-related electrical remodeling or with the function of different cardiac ion channels, leading to the emerging concepts of autoimmune and inflammatory channelopathies. In this descriptive revi...

Targeting BK Channels in Migraine: Rationale and Perspectives.

Large (big)-conductance calcium-activated potassium (BK) channels are expressed in migraine-related structures such as the cranial arteries, trigeminal ganglion and trigeminal spinal nucleus, and they play a substantial role in vascular tonus and neuronal excitability. Using synthetic BK channels openers was associated with headache as a frequent adverse effect in healthy volunteers. Additionally, BK channels are downstream molecules in migraine signalling pathways that are activated by several compounds kn...

Update on anti-arrhythmic drug pharmacology.

Cardiac arrhythmias constitute a major public health problem. Pharmacological intervention remains mainstay to their clinical management. This in turn depends upon systematic drug classification schemes relating their molecular, cellular and systems effects to clinical indications and therapeutic actions. This approach was first pioneered in the 1960s Vaughan Williams classification. Subsequent progress in cardiac electrophysiological understanding led to a lag between the fundamental science and its clinic...
