Abstract/OtherAbstract:
AIMS: This study tested the hypothesis that the inhibition of semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) after ischemia could attenuate myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. MAIN METHODS: Anesthetized male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent myocardial I/R injury. Saline, semicarbazide (SCZ, 30mg/kg), hydralazine (HYD, 10mg/kg), or LJP 1207 (30mg/kg) was administered intraperitoneally 3min before reperfusion. After 30min of ischemia and 180min of reperfusion, the myocardial infarct size was determined using nitroblue tetrazolium staining. Myocardial myeloperoxidase activity was determined through biochemical assay. HE staining was used for histopathological evaluation. Myocardial SSAO activity was assayed with high performance liquid chromatography analysis. Additionally, the endothelial expression of P-selectin was evaluated using immunohistochemistry after 30min of ischemia and 20min of reperfusion. KEY FINDINGS: Myocardial SSAO activity was increased in myocardial I/R injury. Administration of SCZ, HYD, or LJP 1207 reduced the myocardial infarct size and decreased leukocyte infiltration and endothelial P-selectin expression in myocardial I/R injury in vivo. SIGNIFICANCE: These data suggest that myocardial I/R injury up-regulates myocardial SSAO activity, and the inhibition of SSAO prior to reperfusion is able to attenuate acute myocardial I/R injury.
