Abstract

The expression of flbronectin in the repair process after myocardial infarction was studied using two protocols of coronary occlusion in the rabbit: a permanent occlusion or 3 h of occlusion followed by reperfusion (too late for salvage). We found a rapid and progressive increase in cardiac fibronectin expression in the infarcted region of the ventricle. Steady-state mRNA levels for flbronectin increased 13- and 16-fold, respectively, in the permanent and reperfused infarcts 1 d postinfarction. Immunological detection of the protein with a polyclonal antibody against plasma flbronectin showed significant increases of the protein flbronectin in the infarcted myocardium by day 3 in the reperfused group and by day 5 in the permanent coronary occlusion group. Ribonuclease protection assays established the induction of EIIIB containing flbronectin mRNA in both models by day 1 and use of a monoclonal antibody showed an increase in the EIIIA isoform 2 d postinfarction. Increases in steady-state mRNA levels for several collagen types were found in both groups, but these changes occurred after those noted for flbronectin. Thus fibronectin mRNA and protein expression increased rapidly postinfarction suggesting a functional role in the repair process.
