Autophagy is a lysosome-dependent cellular catabolic mechanism that mediates the turnover of dysfunctional organelles and aggregated proteins. It has a neuroprotective role on neurodegenerative diseases. Here, we hypothesized that autophagy may also have a neuroprotective role in diabetes-associated cognitive decline (DACD). In current study, we found that db/db mice display cognitive decline with inferior learning and memory function. The accumulation of ß-amyloid1-42 (Aß1-42), which is a characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (AD), was markedly higher in the prefrontal cortex (PFC), cornu ammon1 (CA1), and dentate gyrus (DG) areas of the hippocampus in db/db mice. Moreover, BDNF and microtubule associated protein 2 (MAP2) levels were lower in the hippocampus of db/db mice. However, there was no noticeable differences in the level of apoptosis in the hippocampus between control (CON) mice and db/db mice. Markers of autophagy in the hippocampus were elevated in db/db mice. The expression levels of ATG5, ATG7, and LC3B were higher, and the level of P62 was lower. An autophagy inhibitor, 3-MA, and ATG7 siRNA significantly reversed the activation of autophagy in vitro, which was accompanied with a higher level of apoptosis. Taken together, our current study suggests that diabetes is associated with cognitive decline, and activation of autophagy has a neuroprotective role in DACD.

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of general and common complication of diabetes, which severely affects the physical and mental health of diabetic patients. Fibroblast growth factor 1 (FGF1), an effective control agent of blood glucose, plays an effective treatment role on diabetes-induced renal injury. But the specific molecule mechanism underlying it is still unclear. Since induction of cellular stress is the main and common mechanism of diabetes-induced complication, we hypothesized that reduction of cellular stress is also the molecular mechanism of FGF1 treatment for DN. Here, we have further confirmed that FGF1 significantly ameliorated the diabetes-induced renal interstitial fibrosis and glomerular damage. The expression levels of collagen and α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) also dramatically induced in kidney from db/db mice, but these effects were blocked by FGF1 administration. Our mechanistic investigation had further revealed that diabetes significantly induced oxidative stress, nitrosative stress, and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress with upregulation of malondialdehyde (MDA), nitrotyrosine level, ER stress makers and downregulation of antioxidant capacity (AOC). FGF1 treatment significantly attenuated the effect of diabetes on cellular stress. We conclude that FGF1-associated glucose decreases and subsequent reduction of cellular stress is the another potential molecule mechanism underlying FGF1 treatment for DN.
