Background— In ventricular myocardium, the T-type Ca2+ current (ICa,T), which is temporarily observed during fetal and neonatal periods, has been shown to reappear in failing/remodeling hearts. However, its pathophysiological regulation has not been elucidated. Methods and Results— We utilized Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) rats with hypertension at the stage of concentric left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy (11 weeks old, LVH) and at the heart failure stage (16 to 18 weeks old, CHF). Some were treated with bosentan (100 mg/kg per day) during the period from LVH to CHF. In LVH, neither the presence of ICa,T (measured in the freshly isolated LV myocytes) nor an increase in α-1G mRNA expression were detected. This condition was associated with increases in tissue angiotensin II (AII) but not with endothelin (ET)-1 peptides. In contrast, in CHF, when the tissue AII remained elevated and ET-1 de novo increased, ICa,T was recorded in most of the cells (−0.87±0.18 pA/pF at −30 mV, P<0.01 versus LVH). This was associate...

Background In view of their mutual crosstalk, the roles of angiotensin II (Ang II) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) in the myocardium are assumed to be synergistic and supplemental. Methods and Results In the phase of compensated left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy of Dahl salt-sensitive rats, Ang II peptide and the ACE mRNA in the LV were increased by 1.6- and 3.8-fold, respectively. In contrast, ET-1 peptide and the preproET-1 mRNA remained unchanged. In subsequent congestive heart failure (CHF), Ang II ...

Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are involved in the early development of cardiac hypertrophy, but their roles in chronic left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) are unclear. We studied the angiotensin (Ang) II-induced cardiac MAPK activation of the hypertensive Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) rats in the subacute developing LVH stage, the chronic compensated LVH stage, and the congestive heart failure (CHF) stage. In the isolated, coronary-perfused heart preparation, Ang II infusion (1×10−6mol/l) ...

Abstract The expression of endothelin-1 (ET-1) in cardiac myocytes is markedly induced during the development of heart failurein vivo and by stimulation with the α1-adrenergic agonist phenylephrine in culture. Although recent studies have suggested a role for cardiac-specific zinc finger GATA factors in the transcriptional pathways that modulate cardiac hypertrophy, it is unknown whether these factors are also involved in cardiac ET-1 transcription and if so, how these factors are modulated duri...

Background—Calcium antagonists have proved disappointing in long-term congestive heart failure (CHF) studies. Mibefradil, a new calcium antagonist that selectively blocks T-type calcium channels, has been shown to be an effective antihypertensive, antianginal, and anti-ischemic agent, and because of its different mechanism of action, it may be beneficial as adjunct therapy in CHF patients. Methods and Results—This multicenter, randomized, double-blind study compared mibefradil with placebo as ad...

Background —To investigate whether endogenous ET-1 participates in an adaptive process of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) or a maladaptive process from LVH to congestive heart failure (CHF), we used a Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) rat model, in which systemic hypertension caused compensated concentric LVH at the age of 11 weeks followed by marked LV dilatation and global hypokinesis at the age of 17 weeks. Methods and Results —By specific sandwich enzyme immunoassay, serum and myocardial ET-1 leve...

Abstract The expression of T-type Ca 2+ current (I Ca,T ) has been reported to change during postnatal heart development and myocardial hypertrophy, which are characterized respectively by the arrest of the cell cycle soon after birth and a switching on of DNA synthesis in the terminally differentiated cardiac myocytes. The hypothesis that there are cell cycle-related changes in cardiac Ca 2+ channel expression was tested by performing whole-cell voltage-clamp recording and BromodeoxyUridine (Br...

1We have investigated whether Ca2+ entry through T-type Ca2+ channels participates in triggering Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) in single guinea-pig ventricular myocytes (whole-cell voltage clamp, K5fura-2 as [Ca2+]i indicator; all monovalent cations replaced by impermeant ions to record uncontaminated Ca2+ currents; T= 23 or 36 °C). 2T-type Ca2+ currents were elicited from a holding potential of -90 mV during steps to -50 to -20 mV. For steps to -50 mV, very small [Ca2+]i tra...

The molecular diversity of voltage-activated calcium channels was established by studies showing that channels could be distinguished by their voltage-dependence, deactivation and single-channel conductance1,2,3. Low-voltage-activated channels are called ‘T’ type because their currents are both transient (owing to fast inactivation) and tiny (owing to small conductance)2. T-type channels are thought to be involved in pacemaker activity, low-threshold calcium spikes, neuronal oscillations and res...

Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), the most common congenital heart defect, is characterized by a hole in the septum between the right and left ventricles. The pathogenesis of VSD is unknown in most clinical cases. There is a paucity of data relevant to epigenetic changes in VSD. The placenta is a fetal tissue and is a potentially useful surrogate for the evaluation of fetal organ development. To understand epigenetic mechanisms that may play a role in the development of VSD, a genome-wide DNA met...

Abstract Glucocorticoids are widely used to treat acute and chronic diseases. Unfortunately, their therapeutic use is associated with severe side effects. Glucocorticoids are known to regulate several ion channels in cardiac myocytes, including voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels. Low-voltage-activated T-type Ca2+ channels are expressed in ventricular myocytes during the fetal and perinatal period, but are practically absent in the adult. However, these channels can be re-expressed in adult cardiomy...

Summary Increasing evidence indicates that inflammation contributes to the initiation and perpetuation of atrial fibrillation (AF). Although tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α levels are increased in patients with AF, the role of TNF-α in the pathogenesis of AF remains unclear. Besides L-type Ca2+ currents (ICa,L), T-type Ca2+ currents (ICa,T) also plays an important role in the pathogenesis of AF. This study was designed to use the whole-cell voltage-clamp technique and biochemical assays to explor...

Heart failure (HF) is a highly complex clinical syndrome, culminating from a diversity of environmental and genetic etiologies that compromise pump function, ultimately resulting in insufficient blood flow to the body. Despite the initial disease in the heart, the pathophysiology of HF evolves to affect multiple organ systems throughout the body, primarily the renal, autonomic, vascular, and cardiac system. The structural and functional underpinnings of HF are diverse and accompanied by various ...
