OBJECTIVE: Oxidative stress and inflammation are the most common causes of myocardial ischemia and hypoxia. This article focuses on the effect of p66ShcA on H2O2-induced cardiomyocytes.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: The p66ShcA knockdown model of H9c2 cells was constructed by plasmid transfection. After treatment of different groups with H2O2, oxidative stress-related factors and inflammatory factors were detected.
RESULTS: The expressions of SOD1, SOD2, GPX1, and GPX3 in H2O2 cells were significantly decreased, IL-1β and IL-6 expression were significantly increased, while p66ShcA siRNA negative group could promote the expression of SOD1, SOD2, GPX1, and GPX3, inhibit the expression of IL-1β and IL-6 significantly, and activates the Keap1/Nrf2 pathways.
CONCLUSIONS: Knockdown of p66ShcA can activate Keap1/Nrf2 pathway, which inhibits H2O2-induced oxidative stress and inflammation in H9c2 cells.Free PDF Download
