Title Inhibition of ERK 1/2 pathway downregulates YAP1/TAZ signaling in human cardiomyocytes exposed to hyperglycemic conditions
Organism Homo sapiens
Experiment type Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing
Summary Hyperglycemia-mediated cardiac dysfunction is an acute initiator in the development of vascular complications, leading to cardiac fibrosis. To investigate the effects of hyperglycemia-mediated changes in cardiomyocytes, cells were cultured in-vitro under normoglycemic (5 mM or 25 mM D-glucose) and hyperglycemic (5 → 50 mM or 25 → 50 mM D-glucose) conditions, respectively. After 24-hours of hyperglycemic exposure, cells were collected for RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) studies to further investigate the differentially expressed genes (DEG) related to inflammation and fibrosis in samples cultured under hyperglycemic-in comparison with normoglycemic-conditions. Western Blotting was done to evaluate the protein expression of YAP1/TAZ under hyperglycemia induced stress conditions, as it is known to be involved in fibrotic and vascular inflammatory-mediated conditions. RNA-seq revealed the DEG of multiple targets including matrix metalloproteinases and inflammatory mediators, whose expression was significantly altered in the 5 → 50 mM in comparison with the 25 → 50 mM condition. Western Blotting showed a significant upregulation of the protein expression of the YAP1/TAZ pathway under these conditions as well (5 → 50 mM). To further probe the relationship between the inflammatory extracellular-signal-regulated kinase (ERK 1/2) and its downstream effects on YAP1/TAZ expression we studied the effect of inhibition of the ERK 1/2 signaling cascade in the 5 → 50 mM condition. The application of an ERK 1/2 inhibitor inhibited the expression of the YAP1/TAZ protein in the 5 → 50 mM condition, and this strategy may be useful in preventing and improving hyperglycemia associated cardiovascular damage and inflammation.
Overall design Analysis of differentially expressed genes in cardiomyocytes cultured in hyperglycemic conditions of 25–50 mM and 5–50 mM glucose in comparison with their respective (25 mM and 5 mM) controls. Each sample has a technical replicate.
