Specific type of cell death may accelerate decompensated heart failure

nd that a specific autophagic gene, beclin 1, is a critical factor required for cardiac autophagy, said Dr. Hill, who holds the James T. Willerson, M.D., Distinguished Chair in Cardiovascular Diseases and the Frank M. Ryburn Jr. Chair in Heart Research.

The machinery of autophagy in mammalian cells is not completely understood and even less is known about its function in disease, he said. The autophagic response may also differ in distinct kinds of heart failure, highlighting the need for further study of autophagy in other forms of heart disease.

Other UT Southwestern researchers involved in the study were Dr. Hongxin Zhu, lead author and internal medicine fellow; Paul Tannous, graduate student; Janet Johnstone, internal medicine research assistant; Dr. Yongli Kong, internal medicine research scientist; John Shelton, senior research scientist in internal medicine; Dr. James Richardson, professor of pathology and molecular biology; Jun Cheng, internal medicine research assistant; Dr. Vien Le, internal medicine research fellow; Dr. Beth Levine, chief of infectious diseases; and Dr. Beverly Rothermel, assistant professor of internal medicine.
