Reactive oxygen (ROS) and nitrogen species (RNS) generation have been proposed to be an important mechanism of doxorubicin (Adriamycin; ADR)-induced cardiotoxicity and cardiomyocyte apoptosis, processes that may be mediated by p53 protein. We note that ADR treatment resulted in increased levels of p53 protein in cardiomyocyte mitochondria and nuclei.(More)
The present study is an initial analysis of whether p53 may function as guardian of the cardiomyocyte mitochondrial genome, with mitochondrial p53 localization proposed to be involved in both mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) repair and apoptosis. Subcellular distribution, protein levels, and possible function(s) of p53 protein in the response of cardiomyocytes to(More)
Cardiac injury is a major complication for oxidative-stress-generating anticancer agents exemplified by Adriamycin (ADR). Recently, several histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs) including phenylbutyrate (PBA) have shown promise in the treatment of cancer with little known toxicity to normal tissues. PBA has been shown to protect against oxidative stress(More)
Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (Mrp1; Abcc1) is expressed in sarcolemma of murine heart, where it probably protects the cardiomyocyte by mediating efflux of endo- and xenobiotics. We used doxorubicin (DOX), a chemotherapeutic drug known to induce oxidative stress and thereby cardiac injury, as a model cardiotoxic compound and observed changes in(More)
Cardiomyopathy is a major dose-limiting factor for applications of Adriamycin, a potent chemotherapeutic agent. The present study tested the hypothesis that increased tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha signaling via its receptors protects against Adriamycin-induced cardiac injury. We used mice in which both TNF receptor I and II have been selectively(More)
The side effects of cancer therapy on normal tissues limit the success of therapy. Generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) has been implicated for numerous chemotherapeutic agents including doxorubicin (DOX), a potent cancer chemotherapeutic drug. The production of ROS by DOX has been linked to DNA damage, nuclear translocation of p53, and mitochondrial(More)
