Combs MD, Braitsch CM, Lange AW, James JF, Yutzey KE. NFATC1 promotes epicardium-derived cell invasion into myocardium. Development. [Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural]. 138(9):1747-57. May, 2011.
During development, epicardial cells on the surface of the heart invade the myocardium to form the coronary blood vessels and fibrous connective tissue.  Michelle Combs, a graduate student in Dr. Katherine Yutzey's lab, discovered that the transcription factor NFATc1 is required for the myocardial invasion of epicardial cells.  Studies in mice and chicken embryos demonstrate that loss of NFATc1 in epicardial cells prevents myocardial invasion, thus inhibiting the development of the coronary vessels and fibrous connective tissue of the heart.  The invasion of myocardium by epicardial-derived cells is likely mediated by the NFATc1 downstream target gene cathepsin K, that encodes an extracellular matrix-degrading enzyme.  Recently, epicardial cells have been identified as a source of regenerative cells in cardiovascular disease.  Therefore, manipulation of the NFATc1 pathway could be exploited to promote the invasion or investment of progenitor cells in diseased hearts.
Goonasekera SA, Lam CK, Millay DP, Sargent MA, Hajjar RJ, Kranias EG, Molkentin JD. Mitigation of muscular dystrophy in mice by SERCA overexpression in skeletal muscle. The Journal of clinical investigation. [Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't]. 121(3):1044-52. Mar, 2011.
The Molkentin laboratory published a paper in The Journal of Clinical Investigation this past year in which they identified an entirely novel strategy for treating muscular dystrophy.  Mice engineered to overexpress the protein SERCA in skeletal muscle showed substantial protection from mutations that normally lead to muscular dystrophy.  Dr. Molkentin and colleagues also showed a gene therapy approach whereby transfer of the SERCA gene in skeletal muscle immediately corrected disease due to a Duchenne-like mutation in mice.  These results suggest novel approaches to mitigate the underlying molecular defects that initiate skeletal muscle and cardiac cellular necrosis in muscular dystrophy by enhancing SERCA activity and/or expression.  The laboratory is currently working on novel SERCA activating drugs that could also be employed to treat this disease in the near future.
Heineke J, Auger-Messier M, Correll RN, Xu J, Benard MJ, Yuan W, Drexler H, Parise LV, Molkentin JD. CIB1 is a regulator of pathological cardiac hypertrophy. Nature medicine. [Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't]. 16(8):872-9. Aug, 2010.
This paper from the Molkentin laboratory identified a novel regulatory pathway that functions through the intracellular phosphatase calcineurin to regulate how the heart hypertrophies in response to disease inducing stimuli.  The protein CIB1 was shown to modulate calcineurin signaling at the plasma membrane, and inhibition of CIB1 function reduced cardiac hypertrophy through calcineurin.  This research suggests novel treatment angles for reducing pathological manifestations to the heart in response to disease inducing states.
Hinton RB, Adelman-Brown J, Witt S, Krishnamurthy VK, Osinska H, Sakthivel B, James JF, Li DY, Narmoneva DA, Mecham RP, Benson DW. Elastin haploinsufficiency results in progressive aortic valve malformation and latent valve disease in a mouse model. Circulation research. [Comparative Study Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't]. 107(4):549-57. Aug, 2010.
This paper describes a mouse model of latent and progressive aortic valve disease. Elastin (Eln) haploinsufficiency was induced by gene targeting. Eln null mice died in the perinatal period due to severe arterial obstruction, but the Eln haploinsufficient mice (Eln+/-) had normal longevity. Valvular interstitial cell activation and TGFb receptor 1 downregulation is at least in part responsible for the pathogenesis in this model, resulting in hyperproliferation and maladaptive extracellular matrix remodeling. The valve cusp histopathology of the Eln+/- mice mimics the findings of human degenerative aortic valve disease, thus these mice thus have the potential of contributing to the development of novel therapeutics for patients with aortic valve disease.

Division Highlights

Joshua Waxman, PhD

The Waxman lab’s recent work has focused on factors that affect cardiac progenitor specification and indicates that cardiac and forelimb progenitors interact, helping to direct each ones’ development. Specifically, we have found that retinoic acid signaling acting on forelimb progenitors impacts fibroblast growth factor signaling, which acts on cardiac progenitors. Together, these interactions allow proper specification of these different fields.  We think elucidating these interactions will allow us to understand developmental syndromes that result in both heart and forelimb defects.
