T2238C ANP gene variant and risk of recurrent acute coronary syndromes in an Italian cohort of ischemic heart disease patients.
J Cardiovasc Med (Hagerstown)
PUBLISHED: 09-25-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The role of C2238/atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) minor allele, at the T2238C ANP gene variant, as a predisposing risk factor for acute cardiovascular events, has been previously reported. We aimed at evaluating, by a retrospective approach, the long-term impact of C2238/ANP-minor allele carrier status toward the risk of recurrent acute coronary syndromes (re-ACS) in an Italian cohort of ischemic heart disease patients.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHRsp) represents an animal model of increased susceptibility to high-salt diet-induced cerebral and renal vascular injuries. High blood pressure and genetic factors are viewed as major contributing factors. In high-salt-loaded SHRsp and stroke-resistant SHR animals, we determined blood pressure levels, degree of kidney lesions, renal uncoupling protein 2 (UCP2) gene and protein expression levels along with rattus norvegicus (rno)-microRNA (miR) 24 and 34a gene expression, nuclear factor-?B protein levels, and oxidative stress. In vitro, UCP2 gene silencing was performed in renal mesangial cells. We found more severe degree of renal damage in SHRsp at the end of 4-week high-salt dietary treatment as compared with stroke-resistant SHR, despite comparable blood pressure levels, along with increased rate of inflammation and oxidative stress. Kidney UCP2 gene and protein expression levels were significantly downregulated under high-salt diet in SHRsp, but not in stroke-resistant SHR. Differential UCP2 regulation was paralleled by differential expression of kidney rno-miR 24 and 34a, known to target UCP2 gene, in the 2 strains. UCP2 gene silencing in renal mesangial cells led to increased rate of reactive oxygen species generation, increased inflammation and apoptosis, reduced cell vitality, and increased necrosis. In conclusion, high-salt diet downregulates the antioxidant UCP2-dependent mechanism in kidneys of SHRsp, but not of stroke-resistant SHR. A parallel differential kidney miR regulation under high-salt diet in the 2 strains may contribute to the differential UCP2 modulation. UCP2 is a critical protein to prevent oxidative stress damage in renal mesangial cells in vitro.

Atrial natriuretic Peptide single nucleotide polymorphisms in patients with nonfamilial structural atrial fibrillation.
Clin Med Insights Cardiol
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) has antihypertrophic and antifibrotic properties that are relevant to AF substrates. The -G664C and rs5065 ANP single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) have been described in association with clinical phenotypes, including hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy. A recent study assessed the association of early AF and rs5065 SNPs in low-risk subjects. In a Caucasian population with moderate-to-high cardiovascular risk profile and structural AF, we conducted a case-control study to assess whether the ANP -G664C and rs5065 SNP associate with nonfamilial structural AF.

Identification of a novel MYBPC3 gene variant in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Ann. Clin. Lab. Sci.
PUBLISHED: 08-07-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder characterized by cardiac hypertrophy caused by mutations in sarcomere protein genes. MYBPC3 mutations are reported as a frequent cause of HCM. We aimed to identify the gene mutation underlying HCM in an Italian patient and his family composed of 13 relatives. Mutation screening of 658 known mutations was performed using a rapid and efficient mutation detection system based on semiautomated MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry using the Sequenom MassArray System and iPLEX Gold genotyping chemistry. Subsequently, direct sequencing of the coding exons and flanking intronic regions was performed for the most suitable HCM genes (MYBPC3, MYH7, TNNT2, TNNI3, and TPM1) in the index patient. We found a novel MYBPC3 gene mutation: G13999T (Gln689His). No other sarcomere gene mutation was found in this family. This genetic variant, which changes the last amino acid of MYBPC3 exon 21, affects a highly conserved residue. Furthermore, the Gln689His does not appear in public databases and has never been described as a polymorphism. The potential pathogenic role of this novel mutation was underlined by its absence in a sample of healthy subjects (n = 122) from the general Italian population. In summary, a novel MYBPC3 gene mutation has been identified in a patient affected by HCM, whereas it was absent in 244 reference alleles.

Hide Abstract
Natriuretic peptides control cardiovascular functions through diuretic, natriuretic, and vasodilatory properties. Several anthropometric, cardiac and renal variables were found to be independently correlated to their levels. Few studies, however, systematically investigated the independent determinants of natriuretic peptide levels in large populations.

Phosphodiesterase 4D and 5-lipoxygenase activating protein genes and risk of ischemic stroke in Sardinians.

Hide Abstract
Genetic factors contribute to the risk of ischemic stroke (IS). The phosphodiesterase-4D (PDE4D) and the 5-lipoxygenase activating protein (ALOX5AP) genes were identified as contributors to stroke in an Icelandic population. In an attempt to better define the contributory role of PDE4D and ALOX5AP genes to the risk of IS in humans, we carried out the present association study in a well-characterized, earlier published, genetically homogenous population from the island of Sardinia, Italy. In this cohort, including 294 cases and 235 controls, age, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and atrial fibrillation represent risk factors for IS. The PDE4D gene was evaluated by four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP32, SNP45, SNP83, SNP87) and by the microsatellite AC008818-1; the ALOX5AP gene was characterized by three SNPs (SG13S32, SG13S89, ALO2A). The results of our study provide no evidence of association between any single PDE4D and ALOX5AP gene variant with the risk of IS in the Sardinian cohort. Haplotype analysis, including that constructed with allele 0 of microsatellite AC008818-1 and SNP45 of the PDE4D gene, was also negative. In conclusion, we found no evidence of association between PDE4D and ALOX5AP genes and the risk of IS in a genetically homogenous population from Sardinia.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
NPR3, located on human chromosome 5 (5p14-p13), encodes the natriuretic peptide receptor type C (NPR-C) that is mainly known as the natriuretic peptide clearance receptor. Involvement of NPR3 in susceptibility to cardiovascular diseases, i.e. hypertension, has been previously shown. With regard to stroke predisposition, evidence for a potential role of genetic variation within or nearby NPR3 has been suggested by a previous genome wide association study.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
