Abstract With the application of early reperfusion therapy after acute MI, the incidence and importance of nontransmural infarction is increasing. In a rat model with nontransmural infarction, we evaluated 1) the changes of LV dimension, LV interstitial fibrosis and transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) mRNA expression and 2) the effects of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor and angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist treatment. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to…

TLDR
There were temporal and regional differences in the expression of TGF-β1, CTGF, and collagen after MI, and the antifibrotic benefits of captopril are not mediated through a reduction in CTGF.
Effects of Early Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibition on Cardiac Gene Expression After Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Gene expression profiling reveals that some elements of the pathophysiology may be unaffected by the treatment and be targets for new therapies, and attenuates changes in myocardial gene expression.
Postconditioning attenuates coronary perivascular and interstitial fibrosis through modulating angiotensin II receptors and angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 after myocardial infarction.
TLDR
The results suggest that Postcon could be selected as an adjunctive intervention with other existing therapeutic drugs to treat the fibrosis-derived heart failure patients after myocardial infarction.
Ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction and effects of ACE inhibition on hemodynamics and scar formation in SHR.
The effect of ACE inhibition after myocardial infarction (MI) on MI healing and remodeling in the presence of hypertension is not exactly known. Therefore, the effect of quinapril on scar formation,
Inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis increases apoptotic cardiomyocyte death and myocardial angiotensin-converting enzyme gene expression in ischemia/reperfusion-injured myocardium of rats
TLDR
The inhibition of NO synthesis increased apoptotic cardiomyocyte death and local ACE mRNA expression in the I/R-injured myocardium, and observations indicate that NO, ACE, and apoptoticCardiomyocytes death are related to each other during I-R injury.
Cardiac Fibrogenesis Following Infarction in Mice With Deletion of Inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase
TLDR
The current study suggests that iNOS-induced nitric oxide production may not mediate cardiac fibrosis after MI, and other mechanisms are involved in nitrosative stress-induced cardiac dysfunction after MI.
Increased cardiac mRNA expression of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP–1) and its inhibitor (TIMP–1) in DCM patients
TLDR
The overexpression of MMP–1, which is associated with an increased ratio of M MP–1/TIMP–1 in DCM, indicates an activated collagenolytic system while replacement fibrosis is accumulating.
A PATHOLOGIC ROLE FOR ANGIOTENSIN II AND ENDOTHELIN-1 IN CARDIAC REMODELLING AND ISCHAEMIA AND REPERFUSION INJURY IN A RAT MODEL OF THE METABOLIC SYNDROME.
TLDR
Develop and characterize a rodent model of dietinduced obesity and the MS, investigate the susceptibility of hearts from these animals to ischaemia/reperfusion induced injury and determine whether angiotensin II (Ang II) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) plays a role in cardiac remodelling and/or the severity of ischaemic and reperfusion injury in this model.
Prevention of remodeling in congestive heart failure due to myocardial infarction by blockade of the renin–angiotensin system
TLDR
Since blockade of RAS partially improves cardiac function, it is suggested that a combination therapy involving RAS blockers and agents that affect other neurohumoral systems may prove useful for improved treatment of CHF.
The Possible Beneficial Effect of Angiotensin II Receptor Antagonist (Losartan) in Experimental- Hepatic Fibrosis in Albino Rats. Histological, Immunohistochemical and Biochemical Study
TLDR
It is found that losartan has a benifical effect in liver fibrosis induced by BDL, however, further study for its usefulness in human hepatic fibrosis is recommended.

Comparative effects of chronic angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition and angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockade on cardiac remodeling after myocardial infarction in the rat.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that inhibition of generation of angiotensin II and AT1 receptor blockade are equally effective in preventing important features of ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction and failure and restores minimal coronary vascular resistance in postinfarction reactive hypertrophy.
Inhibition by angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist of cardiac phenotypic modulation after myocardial infarction.
TLDR
It is shown that myocardial infarction causes a rapid shift of myocytes to fetal phenotype and a rapid activation of collagen genes in the non-ischemic myocardium and TCV-116 failed to inhibit the expression of collagen I and III mRNAs at 1 and 3 weeks.
Differential effects of kinins on cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and interstitial collagen matrix in the surviving myocardium after myocardial infarction in the rat.
TLDR
Kinins inhibit the interstitial accumulation of collagen but do not modulate cardiomyocyte hypertrophy after MI, which is related to a reduced generation/receptor blockade of angiotensin II.
Transforming growth factor beta-1 in acute myocardial infarction in rats.
TLDR
A significant role for TGF-beta in the response of the heart to injury is indicated, as shown by the results of immunohistochemical staining and Northern blot analysis of mRNA.

TLDR
Results show that angiotensin AT1 receptor antagonist in vivo can inhibit the gene expression of TGF-beta 1 and extracellular matrix proteins in hypertensive cardiovascular tissues.
Effects of an AT1 receptor antagonist, an ACE inhibitor and a calcium channel antagonist on cardiac gene expressions in hypertensive rats
TLDR
The results show that hypertension causes not only left ventricular hypertrophy but also molecular transition of myocardium to a foetal phenotype and interstitial fibrosis‐related molecular changes.
Hypertrophic stimuli induce transforming growth factor-beta 1 expression in rat ventricular myocytes.
TLDR
The view that TGF-beta 1, released by myocytes and acting in an autocrine and/or paracrine manner, is involved in myocardial remodeling by hypertrophic stimuli is supported.
Angiotensin II stimulates extracellular matrix protein synthesis through induction of transforming growth factor-beta expression in rat glomerular mesangial cells.
TLDR
Results indicate that Ang II induces mesangial cell synthesis of matrix proteins and show that these effects are mediated by Ang II induction of TGF-beta expression, which may well contribute to glomerulosclerosis in vivo.
Molecular characterization of angiotensin II--induced hypertrophy of cardiac myocytes and hyperplasia of cardiac fibroblasts. Critical role of the AT1 receptor subtype.
TLDR
The phenotypic changes of cardiac cells in response to Ang II in vitro closely mimic those of growth factor response in vitro and of load-induced hypertrophy in vivo, and all biological effects of Ang II examined here are mediated primarily by the AT1 receptors.
Altered Left Ventricular Remodeling With βd‐Adrenergic Blockade and Exercise After Coronary Reperfusion in Rats
TLDR
Evidence is provided for altered LV remodeling, including LV cavity dilation and reduced wall thickness, after 3 weeks of propranolol treatment in sedentary rats after coronary artery occlusion and reperfusion to produce nontransmural infarction.
