Regenerative Stem cell therapy for Myocardial Infarction: Phlorotannin, isolated from the edible brown alga Ecklonia stolonifera, improves myocardial function after myocardial infarction via up regulation of PNUTS/PPP1R10 (Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase 1 regulatory subunit 10), 17/April/2014, 11.40 am

Tulsi, the most sacred herb of India, can give you long life: Vicenin-2 (VCN-2), an active constituent of the medicinal herb Tulsi[OcimumSanctum Linn] inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian life span via up regulation of its target gene, 17/April/2015, 10.29 am

A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published in the 7 March  2013 issue of Nature  by Prof Dimmler, Boon, and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Regenerative Stem cell therapy for Myocardial Infarction: Phlorotannin, isolated from the edible brown alga Ecklonia stolonifera, improves myocardial function after myocardial infarction via  up regulation of PNUTS/PPP1R10 (Serine/threonine-protein phosphatase 1 regulatory subunit 10). 

Significance: 

This study suggests, for the first time, that Phlorotannin, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of PNUTS/PPP1R10. Thereby, it may: (1) inhibit DNA damage responses, (2) inhibit telomere shortening; and (3) promote cardimyocyte survival/regeneration. Therefore, this study suggests that Phlorotannins may prevent ageing-associated decline in cardiac function. Together, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Phlorotannin or its analogues” may be used to improve cardiac function after myocardial infarction
