Pressbox (Press Release) - Myocyte proliferation may compensate for myocyte loss. Myostatin is upregulated after cardiac damage and by alcohol consumption thereby decreasing myocyte renewal. We assess the potential role of alcohol in inducing myocyte apoptosis as well as in inhibiting myocyte proliferation. Methods:? Heart samples were obtained from organ donors, including 22 high alcohol consumers, 22 with hypertension, 8 with other causes of CMP, and 10 healthy donors. Evaluation R428 included medical record with data on daily, recent and lifetime ethanol consumption, chest X-ray, left ventricular (LV) function assessed by two-dimensional echocardiography, and LV histology and immunohistochemistry. Apoptosis was evaluated by TUNEL, BAX, and BCL-2 assays. Myocyte proliferation was evaluated with Ki-67 assay. Myostatin activity was measured with a specific immunohistochemical assay. CMP was assessed by functional and histological criteria. Results:? Alcoholic and hypertensive donors with CMP showed higher apoptotic indices than did their partners without CMP. Myostatin activity was higher in alcoholics than in controls, mainly in those with CMP. The increase in myostatin expression in alcoholic CMP was higher than in other groups. The Ki-67 proliferation index increased in all groups with CMP compared to those without CMP, with alcoholics www.selleckchem.com showing a lower increase in this proliferation response. Conclusions:? Alcohol produces cardiac myocyte loss through apoptosis CDK inhibitor but also partially inhibits myocyte proliferation through myostatin up-regulation. The final result may suppose an imbalance in myocyte homeostasis, with a net loss in total ventricular myocyte mass and progressive ventricular dysfunction. ""While alcohol consumption has been linked to breast cancer in women, few studies have controlled for possible biases created by including former or occasional drinkers in the abstainer reference group. We explored the potential for such misclassification errors as sources of bias in estimates of the alcohol�Cbreast cancer relationship. Meta-analyses of population case�Ccontrol, hospital case�Ccontrol, and cohort studies to examine relationships between level of alcohol use and breast cancer morbidity and/or mortality in groups of studies with and without different misclassification errors. Of 60 studies identified, only 6 were free of all misclassification errors. The abstainer reference group was biased by the inclusion of former drinkers in 49 studies, occasional drinkers (<10?g ethanol [EtOH] per week) in 22 and by both these groups in 18. Occasional drinkers were also mixed with light or hazardous-level drinkers in 22 studies. Unbiased estimates of the odds ratio (OR) for breast cancer were 1.011 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.891 to 1.148) among former drinkers (n?=?11) and 1.034 (95% CI: 1.003 to 1.064) among occasional drinkers (n?=?17).
