cardiovascular system
• 6 month old mice exhibit enhanced muscularization of peripheral pulmonary arteries in the lung
• mice exhibit normal right ventricular systolic pressure at 3 months of age but develop elevated right ventricular systolic pressure by 6 months of age
• however, mice do not exhibit right ventricular hypertrophy and show no differences in left ventricular end diastolic pressure or cardiac output at 6 months
• mice exhibit pulmonary arterial hypertension by 6 months of age
• treatment of 6 month old mice with daily intraperitoneal injection of BMP9 for 4 weeks reverses all indices of pulmonary arterial hypertension, returning right ventricular systolic pressure to normal and reversing the enhanced pulmonary arterial muscularization
• monolayers of pulmonary endothelial cells in vitro show increased permeability at baseline and following LPS stimulation
• mice injected with LPS develop increased pulmonary vascular leak compared to wild-type mice
• treatment with BMP9 prevents vascular leak to a similar degree as in wild-type mice
