英文摘要

Aim: Ghrelin is involved in regulating the differentiation of mesoderm-derived precursor cells. The aim of this study was to investigate whether ghrelin modulated the differentiation of human embryonic stem (hES) cells into cardiomyocytes and, if so, whether the effect was mediated by growth hormone secretagogue receptor 1 alpha (GHS-R1 alpha).

Methods: Cardiomyocyte differentiation from hES cells was performed according to an embryoid body (EB)-based protocol. The cumulative percentage of beating EBs was calculated. The expression of cardiac-specific markers including cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and a-myosin heavy chain (alpha-MHC) was detected using RT-PCR, real-time PCR and Western blot. The dispersed beating EBs were examined using immunofluorescent staining.

Results: The percentage of beating EBs and the expression of cTnI were significantly increased after ghrelin (0.1 and 1 nmol/L) added into the differentiation medium. From 6 to 18 d of differentiation, the increased expression of cTnI and alpha-MHC by ghrelin (1 nmol/L) was time-dependent, and in line with the alteration of the percentages of beating EBs. Furthermore, the dispersed beating EBs were double-positively immunostained with antibodies against cTnI and alpha-actinin. However, blockage of GHS-R1 alpha with its specific antagonist D-[lys(3)]-GHRP-6 (1 mu mol/L) did not alter the effects of ghrelin on cardiomyocyte differentiation.

Conclusion: Our data show that ghrelin enhances the generation of cardiomyocytes from hES cells, which is not mediated via GHS-R1 alpha.
