Improved Renal Denervation Mitigated Hypertension Induced by Angiotensin II Infusion Ming Wang*1,2, Shuyi Zhang*1,2, Wanling Han1,2, Maoqing Ye1,2, Xinkai Qu1,2, Wenzheng Han1,2 1Department of Cardiology, Huadong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, 2Shanghai Key Laboratory of Clinical Geriatric Medicine Here, we present a protocol for renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) in mice with hypertension induced by Angiotensin II infusion. The procedure is repeatable, convenient and allows to study the regulatory mechanisms of RDN on hypertension and cardiac hypertrophy.
Isolation, Culture, and Adipogenic Induction of Neural Crest Original Adipose-Derived Stem Cells from Periaortic Adipose Tissue Yiding Qi*1, Xiang Miao*2, Lian Xu3, Mengxia Fu3, Shi Peng4, Kailei Shi5, Jun Li4, Maoqing Ye5, Ruogu Li1 1Department of Cardiology, Shanghai Chest Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 2Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health, Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 3Shanghai Key Laboratory of Hypertension, Shanghai Institute of Hypertension, Ruijin Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, 4Department of Cardiology, Shanghai General Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, 5Department of Cardiology, Shanghai Key Laboratory of Clinical Geriatric Medicine, Huadong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University We present a protocol for the isolation, culture, and adipogenic induction of neural crest derived adipose-derived stem cells (NCADSCs) from the periaortic adipose tissue of Wnt-1 Cre+/-;Rosa26RFP/+ mice. The NCADSCs can be an easily accessible source of ADSCs for modeling adipogenesis or lipogenesis in vitro.
