Inhibition of SETD7 protects cardiomyocytes against hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced injury through regulating Keap1/Nrf2 signaling

This study aimed to investigate the potential role of SETD7 in hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)-induced apoptosis of rat cardiomyocytes and reveal the underlying mechanism. Our results demonstrated that SETD7 expression was significantly up-regulated in cardiomyocytes in response to H/R injury. The inhibition of SETD7 by siRNA-mediated gene silencing significantly suppressed H/R-induced apoptosis and decreased the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). The overexpression of SETD7 markedly enhanced H/R-induced apoptosis and ROS production. Moreover, the knockdown of SETD7 reduced the expression of Keap1 and promoted the expression of Nrf2. In addition, the knockdown of SETD7 increased the activity of antioxidant response element and promoted the expression of heme oxygenase-1 and NADPH-quinone oxidoreductase 1. However, the knockdown of Nrf2 partially abrogated the SETD7 inhibition-mediated protective effect against H/R injury. Taken together, these results indicate that the inhibition of SETD7 attenuates H/R-induced injury of cardiomyocytes via the down-regulation of Keap1 and promotion of the Nrf2-mediated anti-oxidation signaling pathway.Graphical abstract

CONCLUSION: Sputum suction and alveolar lavage with portable fibrobronchoscope can significantly improve the hypoxia and pulmonary infections, reduce the inflammatory response, and thus improve the prognosis, rendering suction and alveolar lavage with portable fibrobronchoscope as a safe and effective treatment for non-severe ischemic SAP patients with dysphagia.

Authors: Jensen P, Frisk R, Spedden ME, Geertsen SS, Bouyer LJ, Halliday DM, Nielsen JB Abstract The present study used coherence and directionality analyses to explore whether the motor cortex contributes to plantar flexor muscle activity during the stance phase and push-off phase during gait. Subjects walked on a treadmill, while EEG over the leg motorcortex area and EMG from the medial gastrocnemius and soleus muscles was recorded. Corticomuscular and intermuscular coherence were calculated from pair-wise recordings. Significant EEG-EMG and EMG-EMG coherence in the beta and gamma frequency bands was found throug...

Authors: Watanabe R, Wagman JB, Higuchi T Abstract We investigated perception of the extent of an object held in the hand or attached to the head during walking. Participants wielded an occluded, weighted rod by hand and by head and reported the perceived location of the rod end (relative to a virtual vertical line) while walking and while standing. There was an unexpected effect of body part on perceived location of the rod end. In particular, participants stood or walked so that the rod end was farther away from the vertical line when wielding with the head than wielding with the hand. It is possible that differe...

The purpose of this study was to identify differences in the TUGT performance, in an adapted version, between older adults with preserved cognition (PC), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD), and to identify the association between the adapted TUGT performance and cognition among...
