We tested the impact of A1 adenosine receptor (AR) deletion on injury and oxidant damage in mouse hearts subjected to 25-min ischemia/45-min reperfusion (I/R). Wild-type hearts recovered approximately 50% of contractile function and released 8.2 +/- 0.7 IU/g of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). A1AR deletion worsened dysfunction and LDH efflux (15.2 +/- 2.6 IU/g). Tissue cholesterol and native cholesteryl esters were unchanged, whereas cholesteryl ester-derived lipid hydroperoxides and hydroxides (CE-O(O)H; a marker of lipid oxidation) increased threefold, and alpha-tocopherylquinone [alpha-TQ; oxidation product of alpha-tocopherol (alpha-TOH)] increased sixfold. Elevations in alpha-TQ were augmented by two- to threefold by A1AR deletion, whereas CE-O(O)H was unaltered. A(1)AR deletion also decreased glutathione redox status ([GSH]/[GSSG + GSH]) and enhanced expression of the antioxidant response element heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) during I/R: fourfold elevations in HO-1 mRNA and activity were doubled by A1AR deletion. Broad-spectrum AR agonism (10 microM 2-chloroadenosine; 2-CAD) countered effects of A1AR deletion on oxidant damage, HO-1, and tissue injury, indicating that additional ARs (A(2A), A(2B), and/or A3) can mediate similar actions. These data reveal that local adenosine engages A1ARs during I/R to limit oxidant damage and enhance outcome selectively. Control of alpha-TOH/alpha-TQ levels may contribute to A1AR-dependent cardioprotection.
