Abstract

We tested the effect of endotoxin on the peripheral corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor (CRH-R2), which is highly expressed in the heart. Systemic injection of LPS markedly downregulated CRH-R2 mRNA levels in the heart in a dose and time dependent manner. In contrast, CRH-R2 levels in skeletal muscle increased following exposure to endotoxin. These results suggest that CRH-R2 may be differentially regulated in cardiac tissue and skeletal muscle. Finding that CRH-R2 expression in the heart is modulated by endotoxin, a potent inducer of cardiovascular dysregulation, suggests a possible link between CRH and the cardiovascular response to stress.
