Differential gene expression profile of Buyanghuanwu decoction in rats with ventricular remodeling post-myocardial infarction

To investigate the effect of Buyanghuanwu decoction (BYHWD) on gene expression in ventricular remodeling post-myocardial infarction in rats. Methods Animal models of myocardial infarction were established by permanent ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery. Echocardiography measurements were performed after the treatment of BYHWD (18 g·kg−1·dΔ1) for 90 days. Myocardial collagen was observed by mallory trichrome staining. Capillary density was quantified by using Factor VIII immunohistochemical staining. Differentially expressed genes were explored by a short-read sequencing technology combined with a tag-based digital gene expression profiling (DGE) system. Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction detecting system (qPCR) was used to validate the sequencing results. After assembling the gene information from Sham, model and BYHWD groups, we constructed three DGE libraries based on each group. The sequencing of three libraries generated 66 000-73 000 unique tags, which were mapped to reference sequences for annotation of expressed genes. Results Among them, 511 and 352 differentially expressed genes were found in comparison with sham/model and model/BYHWD, respectively. Fifty-five genes exhibited reversed direction of gene expression differences between Sham/Model and Model/BYHWD groups. We found that transforming growth factor beta receptor-1, junctophilin-2, monocyte chemotactic protein 1, neuropeptide Y, arachidonate 5-Lipoxygenase, arachidonate 15-Lipoxygenase were significantly modulated, which suggested the involvement of these genes in BYHWD treatment. Conclusion The DGE profiling data provide comprehensive gene expression information at the transcriptional level that could facilitate our understanding of the pharmacological mechanisms of BYHWD in ventricular remodeling post-myocardial infarction.
