Sestrin2 modulates cardiac inflammatory response through maintaining redox homeostasis during ischemia and reperfusion

Redox Biology

Ischemia heart disease is the leading cause of death world-widely and has increased prevalence and exacerbated myocardial infarction with aging. Sestrin2, a stress-inducible protein, declines with aging in the heart and the rescue of Sestrin2 in the aged mouse heart improves the resistance to ischemic insults caused by ischemia and reperfusion. Here, through a combination of transcriptomic, physiological, histological, and biochemical strategies, we found that Sestrin2 deficiency shows an aged-like phenotype in the heart with excessive oxidative stress, provoked immune response, and defected myocardium structure under physiological condition. While challenged with ischemia and reperfusion stress, the transcriptomic alterations in Sestrin2 knockout mouse heart resembled aged wild type mouse heart. It suggests that Sestrin2 is an age-related gene in the heart against ischemia reperfusion stress. Sestrin2 plays a crucial role in modulating inflammatory response through maintaining the intracellular redox homeostasis in the heart under ischemia reperfusion stress condition. Together, the results indicate that Sestrin2 is a potential target for treatment of age-related ischemic heart disease.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
