The expression of the chemorepellent Sema3a is inversely related to sympathetic innervation. We investigated whether overexpression of Sema3a in the myocardial infarction (MI) border zone could attenuate sympathetic hyper-innervation and decrease the vulnerability to malignant ventricular tachyarrhythmia (VT) in rats. Survived MI rats were randomized to(More)
The impact of angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) on electrical remodelling after myocardial infarction (MI) remains unclear. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of valsartan on incidence of ventricular arrhythmia induced by programmed electrical stimulation (PES) and potential link to changes of myocardial connexins (Cx) 43(More)
The arrhythmogenic effect of intracardiac skeletal myoblast (SKM) transplantation may be related to the differentiation state of SKMs. We tested the hypothesis that lentivirus mediated siRNA against the loop region of miRNA-181a could upregulate the SKMs differentiation repressor homeobox protein A11 (Hox-A11) and reduce the arrhythmias post SKM(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate hypoxia-induced apoptosis and autophagy in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and the underlying molecular mechanisms of microRNA (miR)-17-5p responses in an anaerobic environment. The results revealed that miR-17-5p expression was significantly upregulated in VSMCs subjected to hypoxic conditions (P<0.05)(More)
