Abstract

Background: The use of β-blockers has emerged as a beneficial treatment for congestive heart failure. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) is tightly regulated in the ventricular myocardium. However, the expression of HIF-1α in chronic heart failure resulting from volume overload and after treatment with β-blocker is little known. Methods and Results: To test the hypothesis that HIF-1α plays a role in the failing myocardium because of volume overload, an aorta-caval shunt was created for 4 weeks in adult Sprague-Dawley rats to induce volume-overload heart failure. Carvedilol at 50 mg/kg body weight per day after surgery was given. The heart weight and body weight ratio increased from 2.6 ± 0.3 in the sham group to 3.9 ± 0.7 (P
