Reduced acute myocardial ischemia–reperfusion injury in IL-6-deficient mice employing a closed-chest model

Objective and design We examined the role of IL-6 in the temporal development of cardiac ischemia–reperfusion injury employing a closed-chest I/R model. Materials/methods Infarction, local and systemic inflammation, neutrophil infiltration, coagulation and ST elevation/resolution were compared between wild-type (WT) and IL-6-deficient (IL-6−/−) mice after 1 h ischemia and 0, ½, 3...

Deletion of the Innate Immune NLRP3 Receptor Abolishes Cardiac Ischemic Preconditioning and Is Associated with Decreased Il-6/STAT3 Signaling

Objective Recent studies indicate that the innate immune system is not only triggered by exogenous pathogens and pollutants, but also by endogenous danger signals released during ischemia and necrosis. As triggers for the innate immune NLRP3 inflammasome protein complex appear to overlap with those for cardiac ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) and ischemic preconditioning (IPC), we...

Adaptive Stress Response in Segmental Progeria Resembles Long-Lived Dwarfism and Calorie Restriction in Mice

How congenital defects causing genome instability can result in the pleiotropic symptoms reminiscent of aging but in a segmental and accelerated fashion remains largely unknown. Most segmental progerias are associated with accelerated fibroblast senescence, suggesting that cellular senescence is a likely contributing mechanism. Contrary to expectations, neither accelerated...

Hyperlipidaemia is associated with increased insulin-mediated glucose metabolism, reduced fatty acid metabolism and normal blood pressure in transgenic mice overexpressing human apolipoprotein C1

Aims/hypothesis. Insulin resistance for glucose metabolism is associated with hyperlipidaemia and high blood pressure. In this study we investigated the effect of primary hyperlipidaemia on basal and insulin-mediated glucose and on non-esterified fatty acid (NEFA) metabolism and mean arterial pressure in hyperlipidaemic transgenic mice overexpressing apolipoprotein C1 (APOC1...

In Vitro Inhibition of Thyroid Hormone Sulfation by Polychlorobiphenylols: Isozyme Specificity and Inhibition Kinetics

It was recently demonstrated by our laboratory that hydroxylated metabolites of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB-OHs) are inhibitors of thyroid hormone sulfation. In this study, a more detailed investigation on sulfotransferase isozyme specificity and the kinetics of inhibition was performed. Thyroid hormone sulfation was determined using 3,3′-diiadothyronine (T2) as a substrate...
