SCOPE:: This study elucidates effects of long term nutritional preconditioning by resveratrol on I/R injury and its underlying mechanisms.
METHODS AND RESULTS:: Mice were treated with resveratrol at 2.0 mg/ by gastric gavages for 6 weeks. Then hearts were isolated and subjected to I/R injury in a Langendorff apparatus. Resveratrol significantly improved LVP, ±dp/dtmax and CF, decreased the LDH and CPK activity, and reduced the infarction size. Additionally, long-term oral resveratrol intake prevented mPTP opening and subsequently inhibited mitochondria-mediated apoptosis, as demonstrated by decrease of cytochrome c release, inactivation of caspase-3 and reduction of TUNEL-positive cells. Furthermore, resveratrol inhibited the up-regulation of VDAC1 expression induced by I/R injury. Local left ventricle overexpression of VDAC1 by adenovirus diminished the protective effect of resveratrol against I/R injury, indicating that VDAC1 plays an important role in resveratrol-mediated cardioprotection.
CONCLUSION:: Our data revealed that long-term oral intake of resveratrol sets nutritional preconditioning in coping with myocardial I/R injury. Strikingly, we found that resveratrol down-regulates VDAC1, leading to prevention of mPTP opening and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
