To study the role of chain-breaking antioxidants on reperfusion injury in the ischemic heart, cultured ventricular heart cells (myocytes) were subjected to hypoxia and reoxygenation. The myocytes were prepared from neonatal rats and cultured in F10 medium that was supplemented with serum. As a marker for cell damage, lactate dehydrogenase was analyzed in the medium. Cells subjected to hypoxia for 5 h showed a 1.9 fold increase in lactate dehydrogenase (LD) leakage, while cells subjected to 1 h hypoxia followed by 4 h reoxygenation showed a 5-fold increase in LD intake. Alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene, nordihydroguairetic acid (NDGA), butylated hydroxyltoluene (BHT), and ICI211965 were added to the cell medium every 24 h for 6 d prior to reoxygenation. All compounds protected against reoxygenation-induced cell damage. In the presence of the 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor ICI211965, protection against LD leakage was found only at high concentrations, which corresponded to the antioxidative effect of ICI211965, and not to inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase. We conclude that cultured ventricular myocytes can be used to evaluate the protective effect of antioxidants on reoxygenation-induced cell damage, and that chain-breaking antioxidants protected well against reoxygenation-induced cell damage.
