The Effects of Aging on the Regulation of T-Tubular ICa by Caveolin in Mouse Ventricular Myocytes

The Effects of Aging on the Regulation of T-Tubular ICa by Caveolin in Mouse Ventricular Myocytes Aging is associated with diminished cardiac function in males. Cardiac excitation-contraction coupling in ventricular myocytes involves Ca influx via the Ca current (I ) and Ca release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum, which occur predominantly at t-tubules. Caveolin-3 regulates Ca t-tubular I , partly through protein kinase A (PKA), and both I and caveolin-3 decrease with age. We therefore investigated I and t-tubule Ca Ca Ca structure and function in cardiomyocytes from male wild-type (WT) and caveolin-3-overexpressing (Cav-3OE) mice at 3 and 24 months of age. In WT cardiomyocytes, t-tubular I -density was reduced by ~50% with age while surface I density was unchanged. Although regulation by Ca Ca PKA was unaffected by age, inhibition of caveolin-3-binding reduced t-tubular I at 3 months, but not at 24 months. While Cav-3OE increased Ca cardiac caveolin-3 protein expression ~2.5-fold at both ages, the age-dependent reduction in caveolin-3 (WT ~35%) was preserved in transgenic mice. Overexpression of caveolin-3 reduced t-tubular I density at 3 months but prevented further I loss with age. Measurement of Ca release Ca Ca at the t-tubules revealed that the triggering of local Ca release by t-tubular I was unaffected by age. In conclusion, the data suggest that the Ca reduction in I density with age is associated with the loss of a caveolin-3-dependent mechanism that augments t-tubular I density. Ca Ca Keywords: Caveolin-3, Excitation-contraction coupling, Ca signaling It is generally recognized that aging is associated with changes in be labile (15), and changes in both t-tubule structure and function normal cardiac function, although the cellular mechanisms underly- have been implicated in the impaired contractility observed in heart ing this remodeling remain unclear (1,2).

We have, therefore, investigated the effect of age on t-tubule structure, I , and intracellular Ca transients, in myocytes from male Ca wild-type (WT) mice and whether cardiac-specific over-expression of Cav-3 (31) protects against the effects of aging on the heart. Methods Further details of experimental methods are provided in the Supplementary Material available online (https://academic.oup.com/ biomedgerontology). Animals All procedures were performed in accordance with UK legislation. Transgenic mice with cardiac myocyte-specific over-expression of Cav-3 (Cav-3OE) were generated using animals from Tsutsumi et al. (31) and WT C57Bl/6 littermates. Animals were kept in temperature- controlled rooms with ad libitum access to food and water. Myocyte Isolation Ventricular myocytes were isolated from the hearts of 3- and 24-month-old male WT and Cav-3OE mice. Animals were injected with heparin (500 I.U., i.p.) and 5 minutes later killed by cervical dis- location, the heart rapidly excised and myocytes isolated using our standard methods (26), and used on the day of isolation.

The model predicted a 22% increase in total membrane area of WT myocytes and a 55% increase in total mem- brane area of Cav-3OE myocytes simply as a result of the measured age-dependent hypertrophy, which agrees well with the observed increases in cell capacitance with age in the two genotypes (24% and 55%, respectively). To examine the effects of age and Cav-3OE on t-tubule struc- ture, live myocytes were stained with di-8-ANEPPS to label lipid membranes continuous with the surface sarcolemma. Representative confocal images show modest changes in t-tubule organization with age (Figure 1C). Quantification of the t-tubule skeleton showed that aging in WT and OE myocytes was associated with a 12% and 14% reduction in t-tubule density (p < .01, two-way ANOVA), re- spectively (Figure 1D), with no significant effect of Cav-3OE. This slight decrease in t-tubule density with age was not accompanied by changes in tubule orientation, as the proportion of longitudinal tubules remained the same (Figure 1E). Cav-3OE did not appear to alter tubule orientation over this age range. Taken together, these data suggest that aging is accompanied by an increase in cell width and capacitance, with a small decrease in t-tubule density. While the age-related hypertrophy was augmented slightly in Cav-3OE myocytes, Cav-3 over-expression had little effect on t-tubule morphology at either age and did not ameliorate the effect of age on cell and t-tubule morphology. Effect of Age and Cav-3OE on I Ca Since Cav-3 has been implicated in localization of I to the t-tubules Ca (25,27), we investigated I distribution and regulation with age and Ca Cav-3 over-expression. I was recorded from intact (Figure  2A, Ca Figure  2. Effect of age and Cav-3 over-expression on I density.

C3SD peptide interferes with the interaction of Cav-3 with its binding partners, thus reduc- ing the effect of Cav-3 over-expression. Figure  3 shows the effect of C3SD on I density measured at 0 mV in 3  months (panel A) Ca and 24  months (panel B), WT and Cav-3OE myocytes. While ap- plication of C3SD decreased I density in 3 months WT myocytes, Ca as shown previously in rat (25), it increased I density in 3-month Ca Cav-3OE myocytes. In contrast, C3SD had no effect on I density in Ca 24-month WT or OE myocytes (Figure 3B). These data show that the reduction in I in 3-month Cav-3OE myocytes was reversed with Ca C3SD, indicating that the effect of the peptide was independent of Cav-3 expression level, and that Cav-3 dependent regulation of I Ca decreased with age. Age was associated with reduced t-tubular I density in WT Ca myocytes (Figure 2C). A possible mechanism for this observation is an age-dependent reduction in constitutive PKA-induced stimulation of t-tubular LTCCs, which is also regulated by Cav-3 (25). We there- fore used the PKA-inhibitor H-89 to investigate the role of PKA in the response to age. The mean current density-voltage relationships for I recorded in the presence of 20 μmol/L H-89 from 3- and Ca 24-month WT and Cav-3OE intact myocytes are shown in Figure 3C and D arranged allow comparison of the effect of genotype in 3-month (Figure 3C) and 24-month (Figure 3D) myocytes. The same data are shown rearranged in Figure 3E and F to allow comparison of the effects of age in WT (Figure 3E) and Cav-3OE (Figure 3F) myocytes. H-89 decreased I density in all groups of cells, regardless Ca of age, presence of t-tubules or genotype (Figure 3G, H), demonstrat- ing constitutive LTCC phosphorylation in both the cell surface and t-tubular membranes, in both young and aged myocytes regardless of Cav-3 over-expression (Figure 3I, J). More importantly, in the presence of H-89, Cav-3OE persisted in decreasing I in intact 3 month, but not in 24-month myocytes, Ca while aging decreased I in WT, but not in Cav-3OE, myocytes Ca Figure  3.

Abstract

Aging is associated with diminished cardiac function in males. Cardiac excitation-contraction coupling in ventricular myocytes involves Ca influx via the Ca current (I ) and Ca release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum, which occur predominantly at t-tubules. Caveolin-3 regulates Ca t-tubular I , partly through protein kinase A (PKA), and both I and caveolin-3 decrease with age. We therefore investigated I and t-tubule Ca Ca Ca structure and function in cardiomyocytes from male wild-type (WT) and caveolin-3-overexpressing (Cav-3OE) mice at 3 and 24 months of age. In WT cardiomyocytes, t-tubular I -density was reduced by ~50% with age while surface I density was unchanged. Although regulation by Ca Ca PKA was unaffected by age, inhibition of caveolin-3-binding reduced t-tubular I at 3 months, but not at 24 months. While Cav-3OE increased Ca cardiac caveolin-3 protein expression ~2.5-fold at both ages, the age-dependent reduction in caveolin-3 (WT ~35%) was preserved in transgenic mice. Overexpression of caveolin-3 reduced t-tubular I density at 3 months but prevented further I loss with age. Measurement of Ca release Ca Ca at the t-tubules revealed that the triggering of local Ca release by t-tubular I was unaffected by age. In conclusion, the data suggest that the Ca reduction in I density with age is associated with the loss of a caveolin-3-dependent mechanism that augments t-tubular I density.

We have, therefore, investigated the effect of age on t-tubule structure, I , and intracellular Ca transients, in myocytes from male Ca wild-type (WT) mice and whether cardiac-specific over-expression of Cav-3 (31) protects against the effects of aging on the heart. Methods Further details of experimental methods are provided in the Supplementary Material available online (https://academic.oup.com/ biomedgerontology). Animals All procedures were performed in accordance with UK legislation. Transgenic mice with cardiac myocyte-specific over-expression of Cav-3 (Cav-3OE) were generated using animals from Tsutsumi et al. (31) and WT C57Bl/6 littermates. Animals were kept in temperature- controlled rooms with ad libitum access to food and water. Myocyte Isolation Ventricular myocytes were isolated from the hearts of 3- and 24-month-old male WT and Cav-3OE mice. Animals were injected with heparin (500 I.U., i.p.) and 5 minutes later killed by cervical dis- location, the heart rapidly excised and myocytes isolated using our standard methods (26), and used on the day of isolation.

The model predicted a 22% increase in total membrane area of WT myocytes and a 55% increase in total mem- brane area of Cav-3OE myocytes simply as a result of the measured age-dependent hypertrophy, which agrees well with the observed increases in cell capacitance with age in the two genotypes (24% and 55%, respectively). To examine the effects of age and Cav-3OE on t-tubule struc- ture, live myocytes were stained with di-8-ANEPPS to label lipid membranes continuous with the surface sarcolemma. Representative confocal images show modest changes in t-tubule organization with age (Figure 1C). Quantification of the t-tubule skeleton showed that aging in WT and OE myocytes was associated with a 12% and 14% reduction in t-tubule density (p < .01, two-way ANOVA), re- spectively (Figure 1D), with no significant effect of Cav-3OE. This slight decrease in t-tubule density with age was not accompanied by changes in tubule orientation, as the proportion of longitudinal tubules remained the same (Figure 1E). Cav-3OE did not appear to alter tubule orientation over this age range. Taken together, these data suggest that aging is accompanied by an increase in cell width and capacitance, with a small decrease in t-tubule density. While the age-related hypertrophy was augmented slightly in Cav-3OE myocytes, Cav-3 over-expression had little effect on t-tubule morphology at either age and did not ameliorate the effect of age on cell and t-tubule morphology. Effect of Age and Cav-3OE on I Ca Since Cav-3 has been implicated in localization of I to the t-tubules Ca (25,27), we investigated I distribution and regulation with age and Ca Cav-3 over-expression. I was recorded from intact (Figure  2A, Ca Figure  2. Effect of age and Cav-3 over-expression on I density.

C3SD peptide interferes with the interaction of Cav-3 with its binding partners, thus reduc- ing the effect of Cav-3 over-expression. Figure  3 shows the effect of C3SD on I density measured at 0 mV in 3  months (panel A) Ca and 24  months (panel B), WT and Cav-3OE myocytes. While ap- plication of C3SD decreased I density in 3 months WT myocytes, Ca as shown previously in rat (25), it increased I density in 3-month Ca Cav-3OE myocytes. In contrast, C3SD had no effect on I density in Ca 24-month WT or OE myocytes (Figure 3B). These data show that the reduction in I in 3-month Cav-3OE myocytes was reversed with Ca C3SD, indicating that the effect of the peptide was independent of Cav-3 expression level, and that Cav-3 dependent regulation of I Ca decreased with age. Age was associated with reduced t-tubular I density in WT Ca myocytes (Figure 2C). A possible mechanism for this observation is an age-dependent reduction in constitutive PKA-induced stimulation of t-tubular LTCCs, which is also regulated by Cav-3 (25). We there- fore used the PKA-inhibitor H-89 to investigate the role of PKA in the response to age. The mean current density-voltage relationships for I recorded in the presence of 20 μmol/L H-89 from 3- and Ca 24-month WT and Cav-3OE intact myocytes are shown in Figure 3C and D arranged allow comparison of the effect of genotype in 3-month (Figure 3C) and 24-month (Figure 3D) myocytes. The same data are shown rearranged in Figure 3E and F to allow comparison of the effects of age in WT (Figure 3E) and Cav-3OE (Figure 3F) myocytes. H-89 decreased I density in all groups of cells, regardless Ca of age, presence of t-tubules or genotype (Figure 3G, H), demonstrat- ing constitutive LTCC phosphorylation in both the cell surface and t-tubular membranes, in both young and aged myocytes regardless of Cav-3 over-expression (Figure 3I, J). More importantly, in the presence of H-89, Cav-3OE persisted in decreasing I in intact 3 month, but not in 24-month myocytes, Ca while aging decreased I in WT, but not in Cav-3OE, myocytes Ca Figure  3.
