Myocardial protection in the rabbit induced by ischemic preconditioning is thought to be adenosine receptor linked, but the signaling pathway responsible for the protection has yet to be identified. This study tests whether protein kinase C could be involved. Either of two inhibitors of protein kinase C, staurosporine (50 micrograms/kg) or polymyxin B (24 mg/kg), were administered to rabbits subjected to 30 min regional myocardial ischemia followed by 180 min reperfusion. Half of the rabbits…

Opioid receptor contributes to ischemic preconditioning through protein kinase C activation in rabbits

Recent studies have reported that protection from ischemic preconditioning (PC) is blocked by the opioid receptor antagonist naloxone (NAL). We tested whether an opioid agonist could mimic PC in the

a1-Adrenergic Agonists Precondition Rabbit Ischemic Myocardium Independent of Adenosine by Direct Activation of Protein Kinase C

Proposed ischemic preconditioning appears to eliminate the expected time lag between receptor stimulation and protein phosphorylation when PKC is in this upregulated state, and indicates that adenosine receptor occupancy is necessary during long ischemia to reactivate PKC and mediate the protection.

The Role of Adenosine in Ischemic Preconditioning

After only 3 days of treatment tolerance develops to A1-selective agonists with a loss of protection as well the ability to protect with ischemic preconditioning.

Myocardial protection by insulin is dependent on phospatidylinositol 3-kinase but not protein kinase C or KATP channels in the isolated rabbit heart

Abstract Because tyrosine kinase blockade prevents protection by ischemic preconditioning (PC) in several species, activation of tyrosine kinase appears to be critical for cardioprotection. The

No prevention of ischemic preconditioning by the protein kinase C inhibitor staurosporine in swine.

The protein kinase C inhibitor staurosporine does not prevent ischemic preconditioning in swine and helps to delay infarct size development in rats and rabbits.

Role of bradykinin in protection of ischemic preconditioning in rabbit hearts.

It is proposed that bradykinin receptors protect by coupling to PKC as do adenosine receptors, and blockade of either receptor will diminish the total stimulus of PKC below threshold and prevent protection.

Pretreatment with pertussis toxin blocks the protective effects of preconditioning: evidence for a G-protein mechanism.

It is concluded that preconditioning involves a pertussis toxin-sensitive G- protein and that the same G-protein couples to muscarinic M2 receptors.

Protection Against Infarction Afforded by Preconditioning is Mediated by A1 Adenosine Receptors in Rabbit Heart

Adenosine released during the preconditioning occlusion stimulates cardiac A 1 receptors, which leaves the heart protected against infarction even after the adenosine has been withdrawn.

Catecholamines can induce adenosine receptor-mediated protection of the myocardium but do not participate in ischemic preconditioning in the rabbit.

The role of catecholamines in ischemic preconditioning is unclear. Accordingly, the effects of tyramine-induced norepinephrine release and alpha 1-receptor blockade were examined. Ischemic

Intravenous Pretreatment With A1‐Selective Adenosine Analogues Protects the Heart Against Infarction

It is indicated that stimulation of adenosine A1-receptors causes the heart to become resistant to ischemia and that this protection can be achieved with intravenous administration of A 1-selective agents.

The multiple anginal episodes that often precede myocardial infarction in man may delay cell death after coronary occlusion, and thereby allow for greater salvage of myocardium through reperfusion therapy, which is proposed to protect the heart from a subsequent sustained ischemic insult.
