AbstractMechanistically driven therapies for atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common cardiac arrhythmia, are urgently needed, the development of which require improved understanding of the cellular signaling pathways that facilitate the structural and electrophysiological remodeling that occurs in the atria. Similar to humans, increased persistent Na+ current leads to the development of an atrial myopathy and spontaneous and long-lasting episodes of AF in mice. How increased persistent Na+ current causes both structural and electrophysiological remodeling in the atria is unknown. We cross-bred mice expressing human F1759A-NaV1.5 channels with mice expressing human mitochondrial catalase (mCAT). Increased expression of mitochondrial catalase attenuated mitochondrial and cellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), and the structural remodeling that was induced by persistent F1759A-Na+ current. Despite the heterogeneously prolonged atrial action potential, which was unaffected by the reduction in ROS, the incidence of both spontaneous AF and pacing-induced after-depolarizations and AF was substantially reduced. Expression of mitochondrial catalase markedly reduced persistent Na+ current induced ryanodine receptor oxidation and dysfunction. In summary, increased persistent Na+ current in atrial cardiomyocytes, which is observed in patients with AF, induces atrial enlargement, fibrosis, mitochondrial dysmorphology, early after-depolarizations and AF, all of which can be attenuated by resolving mitochondrial oxidative stress.
