Resumo

PURPOSE: To evaluate the expression of myosin in muscle fibers of the diaphragm in experimental congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). METHODS: Fetuses of pregnant rats were divided into four groups: External Control (EC), composed of non-manipulated rats; Nitrofen, composed of pregnant rats that received 100 mg of nitrofen (2,4-dichloro-4' nitrodiphenyl ether) diluted in olive oil on gestational day (GD) 9.5, whose fetuses developed CDH (N+) or not (N-), and Olive Oil Placebo (OO), composed of pregnant rats that received the oil on the same GD. The fetuses were collected on GD 18.5, 19.5, 20.5 and 21.5 (term = 22 days). We obtained body weight (BW) and photographed the diaphragm area (DA), hernia area (HA) and subsequent calculated the HA/DA ratio in N+ group. Samples of Diaphragm muscle were processed for histological staining with H/E and immunohistochemistry (IHQ) for myosin. RESULTS: The fetuses of N- and N+ groups had decreased BW and DA compared to EC and OO groups (p < 0.001). HA was decreased on GD 18.5 compared to 21.5 (p < 0.001) and the HA/DA ratio showed no difference. IHQ showed decreased expression of myosin in nitrofen groups. CONCLUSION: CDH induced by nitrofen model contributes to the understanding of muscularization in the formation of the diaphragm where the myosin expression is decreased. (AU)
