英文摘要:

Aim: To identify the role of metformin in cardiac hypertrophy and investigate the possible mechanism underlying this effect.

Methods: Wild type and AMPK alpha 2 knockout (AMPK alpha 2(-/-)) littermates were subjected to left ventricular pressure overload caused by transverse aortic constriction. After administration of metformin (200 mg.kg(-1).d(-1)) for 6 weeks, the degree of cardiac hypertrophy was evaluated using echocardiography and anatomic and histological methods. The antihypertrophic mechanism of metformin was analyzed using Western blotting.

Results: Metformin significantly attenuated cardiac hypertrophy induced by pressure overload in wild type mice, but the antihypertrophic actions of metformin were ablated in AMPK alpha 2(-/-) mice. Furthermore, metformin suppressed the phosphorylation of Akt/protein kinase B (AKT) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) in response to pressure overload in wild type mice, but not in AMPK alpha 2(-/-) mice.

Conclusion: Long-term administration of metformin may attenuate cardiac hypertrophy induced by pressure overload in nondiabetic mice, and this attenuation is highly dependent on AMPK activation. These findings may provide a potential therapy for patients at risk of developing pathological cardiac hypertrophy.
