Abstract OBJECTIVE: Limited cardiac reserve, secondary to coronary disease, may be associated with end organ morbidity. In this study, we investigate the significance of anemia in the pathogenesis of this phenomenon. DESIGN: Nonrandomized controlled animal trial. SETTINGS: Animal laboratory in a university hospital. SUBJECT: Anesthetized dogs. INTERVENTIONS/MEASUREMENTS: Fourteen anesthetized dogs underwent isovolemic hemodilution with 6\% hetastarch from a baseline hematocrit of 40 to 20\%. Radioactive microspheres were used to evaluate regional blood flow and cardiac index. Systemic oxygen delivery, consumption, serum lactate, and systemic vascular resistance were recorded during each experiment. Arterial venous oxygen difference was determined from arterial and mixed venous blood. Seven dogs had an iatrogenic critical stenosis of their left anterior descending coronary artery (experimental group); seven dogs did not (control). MAIN RESULTS: Only in the control animals, the cardiac index increased by 35\% with hemodilution to 20\%. Systemic oxygen delivery decreased in both the control and the experimental animals. Systemic oxygen consumption and lactate levels were unchanged in both groups. In the renal cortex, spleen, distal colon, ileum, gallbladder, and stomach body, regional O2 delivery was significantly decreased with hemodilution to 20\% in both groups. This finding was also observed in the left ventricle and cervical spinal cord in the experimental group. In addition, regional O2 delivery was reduced in the spleen, distal colon, and gallbladder with hemodilution to only 30\%. Regional blood flow in the stomach body, gallbladder, ileum, renal cortex, and distal colon, in both groups, and the spleen in the control group was unchanged from baseline with hemodilution to 20\%. However, regional blood flow under all other circumstances (control or experimental) was significantly increased with hemodilution to 20\% with the exception of the spleen, which showed significant regional blood flow decrease in the experimental group only. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that with limited cardiac reserve, anemia may compromise aerobic splanchnic circulation. These observations may further our understanding of the pathogenesis of cholecystitis, gastric stress ulcers, ileal endotoxin translocation, and ischemic colitis in critically ill patients with coronary artery disease.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
