Previously, we reported a missense mutation (C722G) in the M2-muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (CHRM2) gene associated with familial dilated cardiomyopathy. However, the exact molecular mechanisms by the related protein changes of CHRM2-C722G mutation induced are still unclear. CHRM2 and CHRM2-C722G lentiviral vector was infected to CHO cells. Proteomic analysis by label-free shotgun strategy and the STRING 9.0 software were performed. A total of 102 proteins with at least 2-fold change in the CHRM2-C722G group were identified, 42 proteins were up-regulated, whereas 57 were down-regulated. These altered proteins belong to three broad functional categories: (i) metabolic (e.g. Cytosolic acyl coenzyme A thioester hydrolase, Malate dehydrogenase); (ii) cytoskeletal (e.g. Actin-related protein, Myosin light polypeptide 6 and Alpha-actinin-1) and (iii) stress response (e.g. heat shock protein 70, Ras-related protein Rab-10). Interestingly, the marked differences in the expression of selected eight proteins (change >4.0-fold), were connected with many proteins related to apoptosis and immune/inflammatory response such as: FOS, BAX, MYC, TP53 and IL6. This novel study demonstrated for the first time a full-scale screening of the proteomics research by CHRM2-C722G mutation and profiled 102 changed proteins, of which, eight might be critical in cardiac dysfunction for future mapping.


It was a full-scale screening of the proteomics research by CHRM2-C722G mutation. These proteins might serve as valuable biomarkers that could predict the presence of a precursor field. These proteins might serve to further explore the pathophysiological mechanisms in familial DCM patients with C176W mutation.
