Abstract

Recent studies have demonstrated that electrical uncoupling at gap junctions during ischemia is associated with cardiac Connexin-43 (Cx43) dephosphorylation. Whether oxidative stress is involved in this phenomenon still remains unclear. In the present study, we examined the influence of selenium intake on reperfusion-induced Cx43 dephosphorylation. Male Wistar rats were fed a diet containing either 0.05 mg/kg (Low-Se, n=13) or 1.5 mg/kg (High-Se, n=11) selenium for 8 weeks. At the end of this diet, hearts were isolated and subjected to 10 min regional ischemia followed by 10 min reperfusion. The level of dephosphorylated Cx43 was determined in tissue samples from ischemic/reperfused and non-ischemic regions of the hearts. At the end of the experiemental diet, the activity of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) was increased in high-Se hearts compared with low-Se hearts (+13%; p
