A thioether directed acyloxylation of arenes has been realized via Cp*Rh(III)-catalyzed C-H activation and subsequent coupling with carboxylic acids. This new method showed high functional group compatibility and broad substrate scope. Primary mechanistic studies have been conducted and a tentative reaction mechanism was proposed. It represents the first example of a thioether-directed Cp*Rh(III)-catalyzed C(sp2)-H acyloxylation reaction.

An efficient and practical approach for the synthesis of medicinally important acridones was developed from anthranils and commercially available arylboronic acids by a tandem copper(I)-catalyzed electrophilic amination/Ag(I)-mediated oxidative annulation strategy. This new and straightforward protocol displayed a broad substrate scope (25 examples) and high functional group tolerance. What's more, a possible mechanistic proposal was also presented.

The present study investigated the relationship between microRNA-mediated TRB3 gene and hypertension left ventricular hypertrophy at the molecular level. Polymorphic site in TRB3 gene was identified by direct PCR method, and the correlation between the SNP site and ventricular hypertrophy was determined. MicroRNAs target gene sequence interacting on the TRB3 polymorphic site was screened by bioinformatics, and the effect of microRNAs on the TRB3 polymorphic site was finally verified by luciferase test. Two polymorphic sites rs6186912 and rs6186923 were found in the TRB3 gene, and the direct relationship between rs6186923 polymorphic site and the hypertension left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with myocardial hypertrophy was compared and analyzed. Pictar software was used to analyze the effect of miR-100 on rs6186923, and the argumentation was verified by luciferase test. In conclusion, the study showed that the TRB3 gene polymorphism rs6186923 was able to affect the TRB3 gene by affecting the binding of miR-100, which indirectly caused the formation of hypertension left ventricular hypertrophy.

BACKGROUND: Endothelial cells have been shown to be in response to a variety of local and systemic stimuli, and are able to transition between quiescent and activated states. Endothelial cell activation is critical for the pathogenesis of various cardiovascular diseases. However, the expression changes of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are still unknown in the process of endothelial cell activation. Thus, this study was aimed to investigate expression changes of lncRNA before and after endothelial cell activation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In an experimental model of peripheral venous congestion, endothelial cells were activated and analyzed with Affymetrix HG-U133 plus2.0 microarray. We analyzed these microarray data and reannotated the microarray probes for lncRNA. RESULTS: According to the definition of absolute fold change>2 and p value <0.05, 27 differentially expressed lncRNAs were identified and only 1 lncRNA transcript, ENST00000509256 was down-regualted. Co-expression network of lncRNA and mRNA were constructed to predict function of the dysregulated lncRNA. Gene set enrichment analyses suggested that these ENST00000509256 was associated with many important functions, such as cell-cell signaling and regulation of cell differentiation. CONCLUSION: Many lncRNAs are dysregulated upon endothelial cell activation and further experiments are needed to identify the potential biological functions of these lncRNAs.

AIM: To examine the inhibitory effects of adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation on cardiac hypertrophy in vitro and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms. METHODS: Cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes were treated with the specific AMPK activator 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleoside (AICAR) and the specific AMPK antagonist Compound C, and then stimulated with phenylephrine (PE). The Muscle RING finger 1 (MuRF1)-small interfering RNA (siRNA) was transfected into cardiomyocytes using Lipofectamine 2000. The surface area of cultured cardiomyocytes was measured using planimetry. The protein degradation was determined using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The expression of beta-myosin heavy chain (beta-MHC) and MuRF1, as well as the phosphorylation levels of AMPK and Forkhead box O 1 (FOXO1), were separately measured using Western blot or real-time polymerase chain reaction. RESULTS: Activation of AMPK by AICAR 0.5 mmol/L inhibited PE-induced increase in cardiomyocyte area and beta-MHC protein expression and PE-induced decrease in protein degradation. Furthermore, AMPK activation increased the activity of transcription factor FOXO1 and up-regulated downstream atrogene MuRF1 mRNA and protein expression. Treatment of hypertrophied cardiomyocytes with Compound C 1 micromol/L blunted the effects of AMPK on cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and changes to the FOXO1/MuRF1 pathway. The effects of AICAR on cardiomyocyte hypertrophy were also blocked after MuRF1 was silenced by transfection of cardiomyocytes with MuRF1-siRNA. CONCLUSION: The present study demonstrates that AMPK activation attenuates cardiomyocyte hypertrophy by modulating the atrophy-related FOXO1/MuRF1 signaling pathway in vitro.
