    Our prior studies have characterized the participation of histone demethylase KDM3A in diabetic vascular remodeling, while its roles in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury (MIRI) remain to be illustrated. Here we show that KDM3A was significantly downregulated in rat I/R and cellular hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) models. Subsequently, gain- and loss-of-function experiments were performed to investigate the effects of KDM3A in the settings of MIRI. KDM3A knockout exacerbated cardiac dysfunction and cardiomyocytes injury both in vivo and in vitro. The deteriorated mitochondrial apoptosis, reactive oxygen species, and inflammation were simultaneously observed. Conversely, KDM3A overexpression developed the ameliorated alternations in MIRI. Mechanistically, the MIRI-alleviating effects of KDM3A were associated with the enhancement of ETS1 expression. ChIP-PCR affirmed that KDM3A bound to the ETS1 promoter and removed dimethylation of histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9me2), thus promoting ETS1 transcription. Our findings suggest that KDM3A is available for alleviating multi-etiologies of MIRI through the regulation of ETS1. © 2022. The Author(s).
