  • Zusammenfassung: <jats:p> We have recently reported that in chronic myocardial ischemia, adult mammalian cardiomyocytes express P-glycoprotein (P-gp). We now investigate if P-gp is also expressed in acute regional ischemia followed by reperfusion. Adult conscious sheep underwent 12-min occlusion of the mid-left anterior descending artery (inflatable cuff). Successful ischemia-reperfusion was confirmed by monitoring percent systolic left ventricular anterior wall thickening (sonomicrometry) during the whole is chemic period and every 10 min over 2 hr following cuff deflation. At 3, 24, and 48 hr after reperfusion, P-gp expression was investigated by immunohistochemistry and Western blot and MDR-1 mRNA by RT-PCR. Cardiomyocytes in the occluded artery territory (but not those in remote areas) consistently expressed P-gp at their sarcolemma. Whereas at 3 and 24 hr P-gp was mainly observed in the T tubules, at 48 hr it predominated in intercalated discs and gap junctions. RT-PCR and Western blot revealed higher expression in ischemic than in control myocardium. We conclude that in adult sheep with acute myocardial ischemia, the MDR-1 gene-encoded P-gp is expressed at the sarcolemma of the cardiomyocytes from 3 hr up to at least 48 hr after reperfusion. </jats:p>
