Abstract:

Particulate matter (PM) is one of the most important environmental issues worldwide, which is associated with not only pulmonary but also cardiovascular diseases. However, the underlying biological mechanisms of PM related cardiovascular dysfunction remained poorly defined, especially mediated by the pathway of direct impact on vascular and heart. Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs) provide an ideal platform for studying PM-exposed cellular diseases model in vitro. Here, we investigated the direct effects of particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) on hiPSC-CMs and the potential mechanism at non-cytotoxic concentrations. Cell viability, contraction amplitude and spontaneous beating rate of iPSC-CMs after direct exposure to PM2.5 showed that the concentration of lower than 100 µg/ml would not lead to cytotoxic effects. Calcium-mediated optical mapping illustrated that there was a concentration-dependent reduction in quantification of calcium transient amplitude and an increase in the incidence of early after depolarizations due to PM2.5 treatment. Furthermore, there were dramatic dosage-dependent shortening in action potential duration and decrease in L-type calcium peak current density. The Ingenuity Pathway Analysis of our transcriptive study indicated that PM2.5 exposure preferentially influenced the expression of genes involved in calcium signaling. Among them the up-regulation of TRPC3 potentially played an important role in the electrophysiological alteration of PM2.5 on hiPSC-CMs, which could be ameliorated by pretreatment with pyr3, the inhibitor of TRPC3. In conclusion, our results demonstrated that exposure to PM2.5 was capable of increasing propensity to cardiac arrhythmias which could be attenuated with TRPC3 inhibition.
