Apelin and APJ orchestrate complex tissue-specific control of cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and contractility in the hypertrophy-heart failure transition.
The data establish thatAPJ stretch transduction is mediated specifically by myocardial APJ, that APJ is necessary for stretch-induced increases in contractility, and that apelin opposes APJ's stretch-mediated hypertrophy signaling by lowering Ca2+ transients while maintaining contractility through myofilament Ca2- sensitization.
Stimulation of TRPA1 attenuates ischemia-induced cardiomyocyte cell death through an eNOS-mediated mechanism
It is demonstrated that TRPA1 stimulation with AITC results in phosphorylation of protein kinase B (Akt) and endothelial NOS (eNOS) concomitantly with NO production in a concentration- and time-dependent manner and the presence and activation ofTRPA1 promotes CM survival and viability following ischemic insult via a mechanism partially dependent upon eNOS.
Cardiac Electrophysiological Effects of Light-Activated Chloride Channels
The results show that GtACR1 inhibition of AP generation is caused by cell depolarization, which does not address the need for optogenetic silencing through physiological means, but is a potentially attractive tool for activating cardiomyocytes by transient light-induced depolarizations.
Ischemia Enhances the Acute Stretch-Induced Increase in Calcium Spark Rate in Ventricular Myocytes
Ischemia enhances the stretch- induced increase of Ca2+ sparks in ventricular myocytes, with an associated enhancement of stretch-induced ROS production, which may be important for premature excitation and/or in the development of an arrhythmogenic substrate in acute regional ischemia.
A novel cyclic biased agonist of the apelin receptor, MM07, is disease modifying in the rat monocrotaline model of pulmonary arterial hypertension
It is hypothesised that a G protein‐biased apelin analogue MM07, which is more stable than the endogenous apelin peptide, may be beneficial in this condition with the advantage of reduced β‐arrestin‐mediated receptor internalisation with chronic use.
Consecutive-Day Ventricular and Atrial Cardiomyocyte Isolations from the Same Heart: Shifting the Cost–Benefit Balance of Cardiac Primary Cell Research
A method of multi-day CM isolation from one animal heart, yielding calcium-tolerant ventricular and atrial CM and opening the doors to novel experimental designs, including exploring same-heart regional differences.
Myocardial slices come to age: an intermediate complexity in vitro cardiac model for translational research
This review examines myocardial slices, a novel model in the translational arena, and interrogates the technological developments that have permitted slices to be cultured chronically in vitro while preserving the functional and structural phenotype.
Beat-by-Beat Cardiomyocyte T-Tubule Deformation Drives Tubular Content Exchange
The data confirm the existence of an advective component to TT content exchange, which points toward a novel mechanism of cardiac autoregulation, whereby the previously implied increased propensity for TT luminal concentration imbalances at high electrical stimulation rates would be countered by elevated advection-assisted diffusion at high mechanical beating rates.
Potassium channel-based optogenetic silencing
A genetically-encoded two-protein system that enables silencing of excitable cells such as neurons and cardiomyocytes using blue light, and its utility both in vitro and In vivo is introduced.


Direct effects of apelin on cardiomyocyte contractility and electrophysiology.
Modulation of canine cardiac sodium current by Apelin.
The endogenous peptide apelin potently improves cardiac contractility and reduces cardiac loading in vivo.
Endogenous regulation of cardiovascular function by apelin-APJ.
Exogenous apelin-APJ signaling plays a modest role in maintaining basal cardiac function in adult mice with a more substantive role during conditions of stress, and differences in the developmental phenotype between apelin and APJ null mice suggest the possibility of undiscovered APJ ligands or ligand-independent effects of APJ.
Novel Role for the Potent Endogenous Inotrope Apelin in Human Cardiac Dysfunction
It is demonstrated here using immunoassay and immunohistochemical techniques that apelin is localized primarily in the endothelium of the coronary arteries and is found at a higher concentration in cardiac tissue after mechanical offloading, implying an important paracrine signaling pathway in the heart.
Apelin Has In Vivo Inotropic Effects on Normal and Failing Hearts
This study is the first to show that apelin has positive inotropic effects in vivo in both normal rat hearts and rat hearts in failure after myocardial infarction and may have use as an acute inotropic agent in patients with ischemic heart failure.
Apelin Increases Cardiac Contractility via Protein Kinase Cε- and Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase-Dependent Mechanisms
The data suggest that, in addition to their role in cytoprotection, modest activation of PKCε and ERK1/2 signaling improve contractile function, therefore these pathways represent attractive possible targets in the treatment of heart failure.
Impaired Heart Contractility in Apelin Gene–Deficient Mice Associated With Aging and Pressure Overload
Genetic data show that the endogenous peptide Apelin is crucial to maintain cardiac contractility in pressure overload and aging.
The novel peptide apelin lowers blood pressure via a nitric oxide-dependent mechanism
It is reported that genetic loss of APJ, a G-protein-coupled receptor, confers resistance to chronic pressure overload by markedly reducing myocardial hypertrophy and heart failure, and indicates that APJ is a bifunctional receptor for both mechanical stretch and the endogenous peptide apelin.
