High expression levels and localization of Sox5 in dilated cardiomyopathy.

High expression levels and localization of Sox5 in dilated cardiomyopathy. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 22;: Authors: Liu Y, Jiang B, Cao Y, Chen W, Yin L, Xu Y, Qiu Z Abstract Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a disease that can lead to heart expansion and severe heart failure, but the specific pathogenesis remains unclear. Sox5 is a member of the Sox family with a key role in cardiac function. However, the role of Sox5 in DCM remains unclear. In the present study, wild‑type mice were intraperitoneally injected with doxorubicin (Dox) to induce DCM, and heart specimens from human patients with DCM were used to investigate the preliminary role of Sox5 in DCM. The present study demonstrated that, compared with control human hearts, the hearts of patients with DCM exhibited high expression levels of Sox5 and activation of the wnt/β‑catenin pathway. This result was consistent with Dox‑induced DCM in mice. Furthermore, in Dox‑treated mice, apoptosis was activated during the development of DCM. Inflammation and collagen deposition also increased in DCM mice. The results of the present study indicate that Sox5 may be associated with the development of DCM. Sox5 may be a novel potential factor that regulates DCM. PMID: 32468049 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Yokota Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a fatal X-linked recessive condition caused primarily by out-of-frame mutations in the dystrophin gene. In males, DMD presents with progressive body-wide muscle deterioration, culminating in death as a result of cardiac or respiratory failure. A milder form of DMD exists, called Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD), which is typically caused by in-frame dystrophin gene mutations. It should be emphasized that DMD and BMD are not exclusive to males, as some female dystrophin mutation carriers do present with similar symptoms, generally at reduced levels of severity. Cardiac involve...

Dilated Cardiomyopathy Mutations in Thin Filament Regulatory Proteins Reduce Contractility, Suppress Systolic Ca2+ &Activate NFAT &AKT Signalling. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol. 2020 Jul 03;: Authors: Robinson P, Sparrow AJ, Patel S, Malinowska M, Reilly SN, Zhang YH, Casadei B, Watkins H, Redwood C Abstract Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is clinically characterised by dilated ventricular cavities and reduced ejection fraction, leading to heart failure and increased thromboembolic risk. Mutations in thin filament regulatory proteins can cause DCM and have been shown in vitro to reduce contract...

AbstractAimsDendritic cells (DCs) are central mediators of adaptive immunity, and there is growing evidence of their role in myocardial inflammatory disease. We hypothesized that plasmacytoid and myeloid DCs are involved in the mechanisms of myocarditis and analysed these two main subtypes in human myocarditis subjects, as well as in a murine model of experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM).Methods and resultsCirculating DCs were analysed by flow cytometry in patients with acute myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy, and controls. Myocardial biopsies were immunostained for the presence of DCs and compared with non ‐disea...

Authors: Kul Ş, GÜvenÇ TS, ÇaliŞkan M Abstract Background/ aim: Malnutrition is common in patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), especially in the end-stages of the disease where heart failure symptoms predominate. Malnutrition has been associated with atherosclerosis in patients with chronic kidney disease, but it is unknown whether a similar relationship exist between malnutrition and coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD). In the present study, we aimed to analyze whether indices of malnutrition were associated with coronary flow reserve (CFR) in patients with DCM. MAT...

AbstractIdentification of patients with non ‐ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NICM) who are at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and could benefit from an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is challenging. The study aims to systematically assess the prognostic value of left ventricular (LV) midwall late gadolinium enhancement (L GE) pattern in patients with NICM and further explore its value on predicting SCD events. The study was prospectively registered in PROPSERO (CRD42019138468). We systematically searched PubMed, Ovid Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, and ClinicalTrials.gov to identify studies t...

To study the correlation between single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the 3′ untranslated region (UTR) rs9722 locus in S100B and the risk of chronic heart failure (CHF), plasma levels of S100B protein as well as has-miR-340-3p in a Chinese Han population. A total of 215 patients with CHF (124 ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) and 91 dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)) and 215 healthy controls were recruited to analyze the S100B rs9722 genotype by Sanger sequencing. The levels of hsa-miR-340-3p in the plasma were detected by RT-PCR, and S100B levels were detected by ELISA. The risk of CHF in S100B rs9722 locus T allele car...

AbstractAimContemporary survival trends in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) are largely unknown. The aim of this study is to investigate clinical descriptors, survival trends and the prognostic impact of aetiological characterization in DCM patients.Methods and resultsDilated cardiomyopathy patients were consecutively enrolled and divided into four groups according to the period of enrolment (1978 –1984; 1985–1994; 1995–2004; and 2005–2015). A subset of patients with DCM of specific aetiology, enrolled from 2005 to 2015, was also analysed. Over a mean follow‐up of 12 ± 8 ye...
