Role of cardiac valve interstitial cells in valve repair
Written in English
Valvular interstitial cells (VICs) organize and maintain the extracellular matrix in normal heart valves and those undergoing repair. Matrix proteins fibronectin and type VIII collagen are expressed during valvulogenesis and in tissues undergoing active remodeling. I hypothesized that fibronectin promotes in vitro wound repair by forming fibrillar adhesions composed of tensin and the alpha5beta1 integrin and that type VIII collagen deficient VICs close a wound more slowly than do wildtype cells. In response to wounding, migrating VICs reexpressed cytoplasmic fibronectin and deposited fibrils into the extracellular space. Tensin staining localized to fibrillar adhesions while alpha5beta1 stained focal adhesions and as well in a punctate pattern throughout the cell, which may be consistent with fibrillar adhesions. Type VIII collagen deficient VICs showed a reduced rate of wound closure when compared to the wildtype cells. These results suggest that fibronectin and type VIII collagen are important matrix components produced by VICs to regulate cell migration during repair at sites of injury.

The composition of the extracellular matrix (ECM) is believed to play a role in heart valve disease, and is highly relevant to the design of heart valve tissue engineering scaffolds, yet the interaction of valvular interstitial cells (VICs) with the ECM environment has not been well characterized. Calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) is characterized by the stiffening and calcification of the aortic valve leaflets which result in impaired valve function and increased load on the myocardium. In vitro models of CAVD involve the formation the calcific nodules via aortic valve interstitial cells (AVICs). Transforming growth factor β1 (TGF Author: Joseph Chen, Joshua D. Hutcheson, M. K.

The interstitial cells (ICs) that populate the valve leaflets are thought to play a vital role in maintaining their function. The non-cellular component of the cardiac valve consists of a matrix of collagen, elastic fibres, proteoglycans and by: Cardiac valves are composed of valvular endothelial cells (VECs) that line the surfaces of the leaflets, and valvular interstitial cells (VICs) distributed throughout the leaflets (Figure 1b).Both VECs and VICs maintain tissue homeostasis for the day-today function of cardiac valves, as they secrete biochemical signals, matrix proteins, and matrix remodeling enzymes (Figure 1c).Cited by: Cardiac valve interstitial cell tissue is present throughout the valve.
The molecular biology of this cell type is not well known. The purpose of this review is to present our current understanding of the structure and function of valvular interstitial cells and to describe experimental approaches available to study the structure and regulation of interstitial cell function and the interaction Cited by: In all types of cardiac valves, valve interstitial cells reside within the leaflet tissue   .
The valve interstitial cells, by means of protein synthesis and enzymatic. The cells that reside within valve cusps play an integral role in the durability and function of heart valves.
There are principally two types of cells found in cusp tissue: the endothelial cells that cover the surface of the cusps and the interstitial cells (ICs) that form a network within the extracellular matrix (ECM) within the body of the by: Valve interstitial cells (VICs) are the main cells that regulate aortic valve structure and function in cardiac valve leaflets, 6) which play a key role in calcific aortic valve disease progression.
Periostin is expressed throughout valvular development, initially being expressed in endocardial endothelial cells that have been activated to transform into prevalvular mesenchyme termed “cushion tissues” that sustain expression of periostin throughout their morphogenesis into mature (compacted) valve : Roger R.
Markwald, Ricardo A. Moreno-Rodriguez, Sibnath Ghatak, Suniti Misra, Russell A. Norris, Yuk. Valve tissue is formed of a specific form of connective tissue framework: interstitial cells and matrix covered by endothelial cells. 11,12 Although cardiac valve tissue is relatively avascular, it has been shown to be innervated by nerve fibers and endings that contain active sympathetic, parasympathetic, and peptidergic neurotransmitters.

Cells that make up the heart called Cardiomyocytes contract in synchrony to propel blood throughout the body. When an obstruction interrupts the blood supply to the heart, Cardiomyocytes will begin to die.
Valve interstitial cells (VICs) are found in each of these layers, and have distinct sub-populations that regulate homeostasis within the valve leaflets. 10–12 In addition to the common tricuspid anatomy of the aortic valve, a congenital bicuspid valve is found in – % of the general population, giving rise to differential Cited by: Cristina Fayet has written: 'Role of cardiac valve interstitial cells in valve repair' Asked in Insects What is the role of the mouthpart of the butterfly pollination.
This book covers the latest research developments in heart valve biomechanics and bioengineering, with an emphasis on novel experimentation, computational simulation, and applications in heart valve bioengineering. This is an ideal book for biomedical engineers. The heart valve interstitial cell (VIC) population is dynamic and thought to mediate lay down and maintenance of the tri-laminar extracellular matrix (ECM) structure within the developing and mature valve throughout life.

The Mary Washington Hospital Structural Heart & Valve Clinic evaluates patients with aortic valve stenosis to determine the most appropriate treatment option for the stenosis occurs when the aortic valve narrows and obstructs blood flow from leaving the heart into the aorta and the rest of the body.
Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the commonest congenital cardiac malformation in man (Hoffman and Kaplan, ).Together with stenosis of the aortic and pulmonary valves, BAV commonly accompanies other congenital cardiovascular malformations, for example, ventricular septal defects, double outlet right ventricle, hypoplastic left heart syndrome and aortic coarctation (Siu and.

A heart valve is a one-way valve that normally allows blood to flow in only one direction through the four valves are commonly represented in a mammalian heart that determines the pathway of blood flow through the heart. A heart valve opens or closes incumbent on differential blood pressure on each side.
The four valves in the mammalian heart are:FMA: Heart valve repair is a surgical technique used to fix defects in heart valves in valvular heart diseases, and provides an alternative to valve replacement.
