英文摘要:

Aim: beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) agonists are among the most potent factors regulating cardiac electrophysiological properties. Connexin 43 (Cx43), the predominant gap-junction protein in the heart, has an indispensable role in modulating cardiac electric activities by affecting gap-junction function. The present study investigates the effects of short-term stimulation of beta-AR subtypes on Cx43 expression and gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) function.

Methods: The level of Cx43 expression in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes (NRCM) was detected by a Western blotting assay. The GJIC function was evaluated by scrape loading/dye transfer assay.

Results: Stimulation of beta-AR by the agonist isoproterenol for 5 min induces the up-regulation of nonphosphorylated Cx43 protein level, but not total Cx43. Selective beta(2)-AR inhibitor ICI 118551, but not beta(1)-AR inhibitor CGP20712, could fully abolish the effect. Moreover, pretreatment with both protein kinase A inhibitor H89 and G(i) protein inhibitor pertussis toxin also inhibited the isoproterenol-induced increase of nonphosphorylated Cx43 expression. Isoproterenol-induced up-regulation of nonphosphorylated Cx43 is accompanied with enhanced GJIC function.

Conclusion: Taken together, beta(2)-AR stimulation increases the expression of nonphosphorylated Cx43, thereby enhancing the gating function of gap junctions in cardiac myocytes in both a protein kinase A-and G(i)-dependent manner.
