Cardiomyocyte-specific deletion of Sirt1 gene sensitizes myocardium to ischaemia and reperfusion injury

ConclusionsCardiac SIRT1 mediates AMPK activationvia LKB1 deacetylation, and AMPK modulates SIRT1 activityvia regulation of NAD+ level during ischaemia. SIRT1 and AMPK agonists have therapeutic potential for treatment of aging-related ischemic heart disease.

Telomerase gene therapy is considered in some quarters to be a viable treatment for aging. Telomeres are the caps of repeated DNA sequences at the ends of chromosomes. They are an important part of the mechanism limiting the number of times that somatic cells in the body can divide, the Hayflick limit. A little telomere length is lost with each cell division, and short telomeres trigger cellular senescence or programmed cell death, halting replication. Stem cell populations use telomerase to lengthen their telomeres and thus self-renew to provide a continual supply of new somatic daughter cells with long telomeres to repla...

In conclusion, high-dose NR induces the onset of WAT dysfunction, which may in part explain the deterioration of metabolic health. Towards a Rigorous Definition of Cellular Senescence The accumulation of lingering senescent cells is a significant cause of aging, disrupting tissue function and generating chronic inflammation throughout the body. Even while the first senolytic drugs capable of selectively destroying these cells already exist, and while a number of biotech companies are working on the productio...

ConclusionsWnt signalling inhibits Na+ channel by direct and indirect (via Tbx3) suppression of Scn5a transcription. Strategies to block TCF4 binding to Tbx3 and Scn5a promoters would represent novel strategies for cardiac-specific inhibition of Wnt pathway to rescue INa and prevent sudden cardiac deaths.

Conclusion: Baicalin relieved cardiomyocytes H9c2 apoptosis aroused by hypoxia might be achieved through activating Nrf2/HO-1-mediated HIF1α/BNIP3 pathway. Highlights Baicalin mitigates H9c2 cell viability loss and apoptosis aroused by hypoxia; Baicalin activates HIF1a/BNIP3 pathway in hypoxia-exposed H9c2 cells; Silencing HIF1α weakens the influences of baicalin on hypoxia-exposed H9c2 cells; Baicalin promotes Nrf2/HO-1 pathway in hypoxia-exposed H9c2 cells; Promotion of Nrf2/HO-1 pathway is related to the up-regulation of HIF1α.

Higa, Takashi MatsuiAbstractAimsOverexpression of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR), a member of the PIKK (phosphoinositide kinase-related kinase) family, protects cardiomyocytes from cell death induced by pathological stimuli such as ischemia. We previously reported that posttranslational modification of mTOR plays an important role in regulating cardiac mTOR expression. The aim of this study was to see if Tel2 (telomere maintenanc...
