Laurel A. Grisanti, Anna M. Gumpert, Christopher J. Traynham, Joshua E. Gorsky, Ashley A. Repas, Erhe Gao, Rhonda L. Carter, John W. Calvert, Andres Pun Garcia, Borja Ibanez, Joseph E. Rabinowitz, Walter J. Koch & Douglas G. Tilley
Background: Immune cell–mediated inflammation is an essential
process for mounting a repair response after myocardial infarction (MI).
The sympathetic nervous system is known to regulate immune system
function through β-adrenergic receptors (βARs); however, their role in
regulating immune cell responses to acute cardiac injury is unknown.
Methods: Wild-type (WT) mice were irradiated followed by isoformspecific
βAR knockout (βARKO) or WT bone-marrow transplantation (BMT)
and after full reconstitution underwent MI surgery. Survival was monitored
over time, and alterations in immune cell infiltration after MI...

2018-Numerical Parametric Study of Paravalvular Leak Following a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Deployment Into a Patient-Specific Aortic Root.pdf

Wenbin Mao, Qian Wang, Susheel Kodali & Wei Sun
Paravalvular leak (PVL) is a relatively frequent complication after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with increased mortality. Currently, there is no effective method to pre-operatively predict and prevent PVL. In this study, we developed a computational model to predict the severity of PVL after TAVR. Nonlinear finite element (FE) method was used to simulate a self-expandable CoreValve deployment into a patient specific aortic root, specified with human material properties of aortic tissues. Subsequently,computational fluid dynamics...

BACKGROUND Proteolytically released extracellular matrix (ECM) fragments, matricryptins, are biologically active and
play important roles in wound healing. Following myocardial infarction (MI), collagen I, a major component of cardiac
ECM, is cleaved by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs).
OBJECTIVES This study identified novel collagen-derived matricryptins generated post-MI that mediate remodeling of
the left ventricle (LV).
METHODS Recombinant collagen Ia1 was used in MMPs cleavage assays, the products were analyzed by mass spectrometry for identification of cleavage sites. C57BL6/J mice were given MI...

Insulin regulates titin pre-mRNA splicing through the PI3K-Akt-mTOR kinase axis in a RBM20-dependent manner

Chaoqun Zhu, Zhiyong Yin, Bihua Tan & Wei Guo
Titin, a giant sarcomeric protein, is largely responsible for the diastolic properties of the heart. It has two major isoforms, N2B and N2BA due to pre-mRNA splicing regulated mainly by a splicing factor RNA binding motif 20 (RBM20). Mis-splicing of titin pre-mRNA in response to external stimuli may lead to altered ratio of N2B to N2BA, and thus, impaired cardiac contractile function. However, little is known about titin alternative splicing in response to external stimuli....

Megan Pesch, Erin Wentz, Katherine L. Rosenblum, Alison Miller & Julie Lumeng
AbstractBackground: Mothers are important mediators of children’s physical activity (PA) level and risk of obesity, howeverprevious studies of maternal perceptions of child PA have been limited. Furthermore, it is unknown if maternalperceptions of child PA are predicted by family, mother and child characteristics. Therefore objectives of this studywere to 1) evaluate maternal perceptions of PA in their children and 2) test associations of family, mother and childcharacteristics with these perceptions.Methods: 278 low-income mothers of children...

Fibrosis is the major determinant of morbidity and mortality in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)
but has no approved pharmacotherapy in part because of incomplete understanding of its pathogenic mechanisms.
Here, we report that hepatocyte Notch activity tracks with disease severity and treatment response in patients with
NASH and is similarly increased in a mouse model of diet-induced NASH and liver fibrosis. Hepatocyte-specific
Notch loss-of-function mouse models showed attenuated NASH-associated liver fibrosis, demonstrating causality
to obesity-induced liver pathology. Conversely, forced...

BACKGROUND: Health information technology (IT) tools are increasingly used to improve patient care. However, implementation of English-only health IT tools could potentially worsen health disparities for non-English speakers.OBJECTIVE: We aim to describe the "trans-creation" process of developing linguistically and culturally appropriate health IT tools through a detailed case analysis of a waiting room health mobile app designed to help Spanish-speaking Latino people prepare for primary care visits.METHODS: We adapted the English-language Visit Planner mobile app...

Biogenesis of Hydrogen Sulfide and Thioethers by Cystathionine Beta-Synthase

Tomas Majtan, Jakub Krijt, Jitka Sokolová, Michaela Krizkova, Maria A Ralat, Jana O. Kent, Jesse F. Gregory, Viktor Kožich & Jan P. Kraus
Aims: The transsulfuration pathway enzymes cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) and cystathionine gammalyaseare thought to be the major source of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). In this study, we assessed the role of CBS inH2S biogenesis.Results: We show that despite discouraging enzyme kinetics of alternative H2S-producing reactions utilizingcysteine compared with the canonical condensation of serine and homocysteine, our simulations of substratecompetitions at biologically relevant conditions suggest that cysteine is able to partially compete with serine onCBS, thus leading to...

On the effect of hyperaldosteronism-inducing mutation in Na/K pumps

Dylan J Meyer, Craig Gatto & Pablo Artigas
Primary aldosteronism, a condition in which too much aldosterone is produced and that leads to hypertension, is often initiated by an aldosterone-producing adenoma within the zona glomerulosa of the adrenal cortex. Somatic mutations of ATP1A1, encoding the Na/K pump α1 subunit, have been found in these adenomas. It has been proposed that a passive inward current transported by several of these mutant pumps is a "gain-of-function" activity that produces membrane depolarization and concomitant increases in...

GRK5-Mediated Exacerbation of Pathological Cardiac Hypertrophy Involves Facilitation of Nuclear NFAT Activity.pdf

Jonathan E. Hullmann, Laurel A. Grisanti, Catherine A. Makarewich, Erhe Gao, Jessica I. Gold, J. Kurt Chuprun, Douglas G. Tilley, Steven R. Houser & Walter J. Koch
Rationale: G protein–coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) acting in the cardiomyocyte regulate important signaling events that control cardiac function. Both GRK2 and GRK5, the predominant GRKs expressed in the heart, have been shown to be upregulated in failing human myocardium. Although the canonical role of GRKs is to desensitize G protein–coupled receptors via phosphorylation, it has been demonstrated that GRK5, unlike GRK2, can reside in the nucleus of myocytes and exert G protein–coupled receptor–independent effects that...

Steven J. Forrester, Daniel Kikuchi, Marina S. Hernandes, Qian Xu & Kathy K. Griendling
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are well known for their role in mediating both physiological and pathophysiological signal transduction. Enzymes and subcellular compartments that typically produce ROS are associated with metabolic regulation, and diseases associated with metabolic dysfunction may be influenced by changes in redox balance. In this review, we summarize the current literature surrounding ROS and their role in metabolic and inflammatory regulation, focusing on ROS signal transduction and its relationship to disease progression. In...
