Abstract Little is known about the effect of diabetes mellitus (DM) on transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) located in cardiac sensory nerves. This study was performed to test the changes of TRPV1 and its main neuropeptides in diabetic hearts. DM was induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ) in C57BL/6J mice. The protein and mRNA expression of TRPV1, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and substance P (SP) levels in hearts were measured, respectively. Compared with control mice, blood glucose was significantly increased in diabetic mice ( P P

Summary In type 1 diabetes, T cell-mediated death of pancreatic β cells produces insulin deficiency. However, what attracts or restricts broadly autoreactive lymphocyte pools to the pancreas remains unclear. We report that TRPV1 + pancreatic sensory neurons control islet inflammation and insulin resistance. Eliminating these neurons in diabetes-prone NOD mice prevents insulitis and diabetes, despite systemic persistence of pathogenic T cell pools. Insulin resistance and β cell stress of prediabe...

Background— Molecular mechanisms regulating the cardiac sensory nervous system remain poorly understood. Cardiac sensory nerve impairment causes silent myocardial ischemia, a main cause of sudden death in diabetes mellitus (DM). The present study focused on the roles of nerve growth factor (NGF) in the regulation of the cardiac sensory nervous system and analyzed the mechanism of silent myocardial ischemia in DM. Methods and Results— We screened neurotrophic factors and found that cardiac sensor...

Background— Although pharmacological studies suggest that the transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 (TRPV1) channels expressed in sensory nerve fibers innervating the heart may exert a cardioprotective effect, definitive evidence supporting such a notion is lacking. In addition, function and regulation of sensory neuropeptides, namely, calcitonin gene–related peptide (CGRP) and substance P (SP), in the face of challenges induced by cardiac injury in the presence or absence of the TRPV1 a...

Background— Chest pain is a hallmark of myocardial ischemia, but its underlying signaling mechanisms remain poorly understood. The capsaicin receptor, vanilloid receptor-1 (VR1), is an important cation channel present on primary nociceptive neurons. We have shown that the VR1 is expressed on sensory nerve endings of the heart. In the present study, we determined the role of VR1s in activation of cardiac spinal afferent nerves caused by myocardial ischemia. Methods and Results— Single-unit activi...

Myocardial ischaemia causes the release of metabolites such as bradykinin, which stimulates cardiac sensory receptors to evoke a sympathoexcitatory reflex. However, the molecular identity of the afferent neurons and fibres mediating this reflex response is not clear. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the cardiogenic sympathoexcitatory reflex is mediated by capsaicin-sensitive afferent fibres. Enhanced immunofluorescence labelling revealed that vanilloid receptor 1 (VR1)-containing aff...

Abstract The two most commonly used methods to analyze data from real-time, quantitative PCR experiments are absolute quantification and relative quantification. Absolute quantification determines the input copy number, usually by relating the PCR signal to a standard curve. Relative quantification relates the PCR signal of the target transcript in a treatment group to that of another sample such as an untreated control. The 2 −ΔΔ C T method is a convenient way to analyze the relative changes in...

Diabetes mellitus is a major cause of peripheral neuropathy, commonly manifested as distal symmetrical polyneuropathy. This review examines evidence for the importance of vascular factors and their metabolic substrate from human and animal studies. Diabetic neuropathy is associated with risk factors for macrovascular disease and with other microvascular complications such as poor metabolic control, dyslipidaemia, body mass index, smoking, microalbuminuria and retinopathy. Studies in human and an...

Capsaicin, the main pungent ingredient in ‘hot’ chilli peppers, elicits a sensation of burning pain by selectively activating sensory neurons that convey information about noxious stimuli to the central nervous system. We have used an expression cloning strategy based on calcium influx to isolate a functional cDNA encoding a capsaicin receptor from sensory neurons. This receptor is a non-selective cation channel that is structurally related to members of the TRP family of ion channels. The clone...

Cardiac complications are leading causes of death in diabetic patients. Imbalance of Ca2+ homeostasis is a hallmark of cardiac dysfunction in diabetes, while TRPV channels are non-selective for cations and are permeable to Ca2+. Our aim was to evaluate the expression levels of TRPV1, TRPV2, TRPV3, TRPV4, TRPV5, and TRPV6 genes and proteins in cardiac tissue at 3 days and 4, 8, and 12 weeks after induction of diabetes. Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned to control and DM groups. DM was induced by ...

Abstract Lower extremity ulcerations represent a major complication in diabetes mellitus and involve multiple physiological factors that lead to impairment of wound healing. Neuropeptides are neuromodulators implicated in various processes including diabetic wound healing. Diabetes causes autonomic and small sensory nerve fibers neuropathy as well as inflammatory dysregulation, which manifest with decreased neuropeptide expression and a disproportion in pro- and anti- inflammatory cytokine respo...

The pathophysiology linking diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is complex and multifactorial. The specific type of cardiomyopathy associated with diabetes, known as diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM), is recognized as asymptomatic progression of structural and functional remodeling in the heart of diabetic patients in the absence of coronary atherosclerosis and hypertension. In other words, the presence of heart disease specifically in diabetic patients is also known as diabetic heart disease....

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and vascular disease, along with trauma, have long been recognized as major risk factors for the development of diabetic foot ulcerations (DFUs). More recently, chronic inflammation, abnormal extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling, and reduced wound neovascularization, as a result of dysregulated cell function with imbalanced secretion of cytokines, matrix metalloproteinases, and growth factors, have been implicated in DFU failure to heal. Therefore, researchers are...

It has been shown that diabetes modifies the myocardial responses to ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) and to cardioprotective agents. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of combined treatment with ischemic postconditioning (IPostC) and cyclosporine A (CsA) on inflammation and apoptosis of the diabetic myocardium injured by I/R. Eight weeks after induction of diabetes in Wistar rats, hearts were mounted on a Langendorff apparatus and were subsequently subjected to a 30-min regional ische...

Abstract Background Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) plays an important role in cardiovascular regulation, which was found reduced in serum of diabetic patients. To test the hypothesis that lack of CGRP in myocardium is associated with diabetic cardiac dysfunction, which may be improved by preservation of CGRP in diabetic rats. Methods and results Diabetes was induced in male Sprague–Dawley rats by streptozotocin (50mg/kg). Two groups of the diabetic rats, one fed with standard laboratory ...

Background The transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) mediates cellular responses to pain, heat, or noxious stimuli by calcium influx; however, the cellular localization and function of TRPV1 in the cardiomyocyte is largely unknown. We studied whether myocardial injury is regulated by TRPV1 and whether we could mitigate reperfusion injury by limiting the calcineurin interaction with TRPV1. Methods and Results In primary cardiomyocytes, confocal and electron microscopy demonstrates that...
