The vitamin E isoforms alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol have opposite associations with spirometric parameters: the CARDIA study
Conclusion: Increasing serum concentrations of gamma-tocopherol were associated with lower FEV1 or FVC, whereas increasing serum concentrations of alpha-tocopherol was associated with higher FEV1 or FVC. Based on the prevalence of serum gamma-tocopherol >10 muM in adults in CARDIA and the adult U.S. population in the 2011 census, we expect that the lower FEV1 and FVC at these concentrations of serum gamma-tocopherol occur in up to 4.5 million adults in the population.

Interaction between respiration and right versus left ventricular volumes at rest and during exercise: a real-time cardiac magnetic resonance study
In conclusion, ventricular volumes oscillate with respiratory phase such that RV and LV volumes are maximal at peak inspiration and expiration, respectively. Thus, interpretation of RV versus LV volumes requires careful definition of the exact respiratory time point for proper interpretation, both at rest and during exercise.

Estrogen-provided cardiac protection following burn trauma is mediated through a reduction in mitochondria-derived DAMPs
This study was designed to test the hypothesis that 17β-estradiol protects the heart via suppressing myocardial mitochondrial DAMPs after burn injury using an animal model. Sprague-Dawley rats were given a third-degree scald burn comprising 40% total body surface area (TBSA). 17β-Estradiol, 0.5 mg/kg, or control vehicle was administered subcutaneously 15 min following burn. The heart was harvested 24 h postburn. Estradiol showed significant inhibition on the productivity of H2O2 and oxidation of lipid molecules in the mitochondria. Estradiol increased mitochondrial antioxidant defense via enhancing the activities...

Activation of alternative NF-{kappa}B signaling during recovery of disuse-induced loss of muscle oxidative phenotype
Physical inactivity-induced loss of skeletal muscle oxidative phenotype (OXPHEN), often observed in chronic disease, adversely affects physical functioning and quality of life. Potential therapeutic targets remain to be identified, since the molecular mechanisms involved in reloading-induced recovery of muscle OXPHEN remain incompletely understood. We hypothesized a role for alternative NF-B, as a recently identified positive regulator of muscle OXPHEN, in reloading-induced alterations in muscle OXPHEN. Markers and regulators (including alternative NF-B signaling) of muscle OXPHEN were investigated in gastrocnemius muscle ...

IL-1{beta} hampers glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in Cohen diabetic rat islets through mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase inhibition by nitric oxide
This study examined the mechanism by which interleukin-1β modulates GSIS and the role of COX in this process. We measured COX activity, ATP content, GSIS, iNOS expression, and nitrite production with and without IL-1β, N-nitro-l-arginine, copper, or potassium cyanide in isolated islets of CDs and CDr fed different diets. We found reduced COX activity, ATP content, and GSIS in isolated islets of CDs rats fed a regular diet. These were severely reduced following HSD and were restored to regular diet levels on copper-supplemented HSD (P < 0.01 vs. CDr islets). Potassium cyanide chemically reduced COX activity, de...

Fibroblast engraftment in the decellularized mouse lung occurs via a {beta}1-integrin-dependent, FAK-dependent pathway that is mediated by ERK and opposed by AKT
Creation of bioartificial organs has been enhanced by the development of strategies involving decellularized mammalian lung. Because fibroblasts critically support lung function through a number of mechanisms, study of these cells in the context of the decellularized lung has the potential to improve the structure and function of tissue-engineered lungs. We characterized the engraftment and survival of a mouse fibroblast cell line in decellularized rat lung slices and found a time-dependent increase in cell numbers assessed by hematoxylin and eosin staining, cell proliferation assessed by Ki67 staining, and minimal cell de...

KCNQ (Kv7) potassium channel activators as bronchodilators: combination with a {beta}2-adrenergic agonist enhances relaxation of rat airways
KCNQ (Kv7 family) potassium (K+) channels were recently found in airway smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) from rodent and human bronchioles. In the present study, we evaluated expression of KCNQ channels and their role in constriction/relaxation of rat airways. Real-time RT-PCR analysis revealed expression of KCNQ4 > KCNQ5 > KCNQ1 > KCNQ2 > KCNQ3, and patch-clamp electrophysiology detected KCNQ currents in rat ASMCs. In precision-cut lung slices, the KCNQ channel activator retigabine induced a concentration-dependent relaxation of small bronchioles preconstricted with methacholine (MeCh; EC50 = 3.6 ± 0.3 μM...

Macrophage migration inhibitory factor deficiency in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
This study examines the role of MIF in the pathogenesis of COPD. Mice deficient in MIF (Mif–/–) or the MIF receptor CD74 (Cd74–/–) and wild-type (WT) controls were aged for 6 mo. Both Mif–/– and Cd74–/– mice developed spontaneous emphysema by 6 mo of age compared with WT mice as measured by lung volume and chord length. This was associated with activation of the senescent pathway markers p53/21 and p16. Following exposure to cigarette smoke, Mif–/– mice were more susceptible to the development of COPD and apoptosis compared with WT mice. MIF plasma concentrations ...

Protective effect of adenosine receptors against lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury
Acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) affect 200,000 people a year in the USA. Pulmonary vascular and specifically endothelial cell (EC) barrier compromise is a hallmark of these diseases. We have recently shown that extracellular adenosine enhances human pulmonary (EC) barrier via activation of adenosine receptors (ARs) in cell cultures. On the basis of these data, we hypothesized that activation of ARs might exert barrier-protective effects in a model of ALI/ARDS in mice. To test this hypothesis, we examined the effects of pre- and posttreatment of adenosine and 5'-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosi...

Nox2/ROS-dependent human antigen R translocation contributes to TNF-{alpha}-induced SOCS-3 expression in human tracheal smooth muscle cells
Elevated levels of TNF-α have been detected in the airway fluids, which may induce upregulation of inflammatory proteins. Suppressors of cytokine signaling (SOCS)-3 proteins can be induced by various cytokines and negatively regulated inflammatory responses. Although TNF-α has been shown to induce SOCS-3 expression, the mechanisms underlying TNF-α-induced SOCS-3 expression in human tracheal smooth muscle cells (HTSMCs) remain unclear. Here, we showed that TNF-α induced SOCS-3 expression, which was inhibited by pretreatment with the inhibitor of transcription level (actinomycin D), translation level ...

Let-7d microRNA affects mesenchymal phenotypic properties of lung fibroblasts
MicroRNAs are small noncoding RNAs that inhibit protein expression. We have previously shown that the inhibition of the microRNA let-7d in epithelial cells caused changes consistent with epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) both in vitro and in vivo. The aim of this study was to determine whether the introduction of let-7d into fibroblasts alters their mesenchymal properties. Transfection of primary fibroblasts with let-7d caused a decrease in expression of the mesenchymal markers α-smooth muscle actin, N-cadherin, fibroblast-specific protein-1, and fibronectin, as well as an increase in the epithelial markers ...

TNF-{alpha} induces cytosolic phospholipase A2 expression via Jak2/PDGFR-dependent Elk-1/p300 activation in human lung epithelial cells
Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) plays a pivotal role in mediating agonist-induced arachidonic acid release for prostaglandin (PG) synthesis during inflammation triggered by tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α). However, the mechanisms underlying TNF-α-induced cPLA2 expression in human lung epithelial cells (HPAEpiCs) were not completely understood. Here, we demonstrated that TNF-α induced cPLA2 mRNA and protein expression, promoter activity, and PGE2 secretion in HPAEpiCs. These responses induced by TNF-α were inhibited by pretreatment with the inhibitor of Jak2 (AG490), platelet-derived growth ...

Loss of caveolin-1 and adiponectin induces severe inflammatory lung injury following LPS challenge through excessive oxidative/nitrative stress
Excessive reactive oxygen/nitrogen species have been associated with the onset, progression, and outcome of sepsis, both in preclinical and clinical studies. However, the signaling pathways regulating oxidative/nitrative stress in the pathogenesis of sepsis-induced acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome are not fully understood. Employing the novel mouse model with genetic deletions of both caveolin-1 (Cav1) and adiponectin (ADPN) [double knockout (DKO) mice], we have demonstrated the critical role of Cav1 and ADPN signaling cross talk in regulating oxidative/nitrative stress and resulting inflammatory l...

Transgelin as a therapeutic target to prevent hypoxic pulmonary hypertension
We previously observed that transgelin was preferentially expressed in human pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells (PAMSCs) under hypoxia and that the upregulation of transgelin was independent of hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α). Reduced transgelin expression was accompanied by significantly impaired migration ability in vitro. However, the regulation mechanism of transgelin and its function in preventing hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (HPH) was unclear. In the present study, RNA interference with hypoxia-inducible factor 2α (HIF-2α) was employed in human PASMCs. Transgelin expression was dimi...

Aging causes a slowing in ciliary beat frequency, mediated by PKC{varepsilon}
The elderly are at much higher risk for developing pneumonia than younger individuals. Pneumonia is a leading cause of death and is the third most common reason for hospitalization in the elderly. One reason that elderly people may be more susceptible to pneumonia is a breakdown in the lung's first line of defense, mucociliary clearance. Cilia beat in a coordinated manner to propel out invading microorganisms and particles. Ciliary beat frequency (CBF) is known to slow with aging, however, little is known about the mechanism(s) involved. We compared the CBF in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice aged 2, 12, and 24 mo and found that CB...

Airway arginase expression and N{omega}-hydroxy-nor-arginine effect on methacholine-induced bronchoconstriction differentiate Lewis and Fischer rat strains
Innate airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is well modeled by two strains of rat, the hyperresponsive Fischer 344 rat and the normoresponsive Lewis rat. Arginase has been implicated in AHR associated with allergic asthma models. We addressed the role of arginase in innate AHR using the Fischer-Lewis model. In vivo arginase inhibition with N-hydroxy-nor-arginine (nor-NOHA) was evaluated on methacholine-induced bronchoconstriction in the Fischer and the Lewis rats. Arginase activity and mRNA expression were quantified in structural and resident cells of the proximal airway tree. The effect of nor-NOHA was evaluated on cultured ...
