RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Rheumatoid arthritis synovial fibroblasts (RASF) play an essential role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This study aimed to investigate the biological effects of miR-22 on RASFs. METHODS: RT-qPCR was used to detect the expressions of miR-22 and SIRT1 in RA synovial tissue. The results of miR-22 on the proliferation of RASF were examined by MTT assay. The effects of miR-22 on the secretion of TNF-α, IL-1ß, and IL-6 in RASF were measured by ELISA. Target gene prediction and screening, and luciferase reporter assay were used to testify downstream target genes of miR-22. RT-qPCR and western blotting were used to detect the mRNA and protein expression of SIRT1. RESULTS: miR-22 was significantly decreased in RA synovial tissue, while SIRT1 was significantly increased in RA synovial tissue. Over-expression of miR-22 significantly inhibited the proliferation of RASFs and the secretions of inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1ß, and IL-6) in RASFs. SIRT1 was identified as a direct target of miR-22. Over-expression of miR-22 reduced the expression level of SIRT1 in RASFs. Over-expression of SIRT1 reversed the effect of miR-22 on the proliferation of RASFs and the secretion of inflammatory cytokines. CONCLUSION: MIR-22 was significantly down-regulated in RASF cells, which affected the secretions of inflammatory cytokines and cell proliferation by regulating SIRT1.

RESUMO

Objective To explore the effect of tanshinone IIA (TSA) on hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced senescence of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and the underlying mechanism. Methods HUVECs were cultured in vitro and divided into the control group, model group and TSA group. The cells in the TSA group were pre-treated with TSA for 24 hours. H2O2 was used to induce cell senescence in the model and TSA groups. Transfection with SIRT1 siRNA was used for the knockdown of SIRT1 in HUVECs. CCK-8 assay was performed to detect cell viability. The expression levels of senescence-related proteins (P21 and P26), SIRT1, phosphorylated endothelial nitric oxide synthase (p-eNOS), and eNOS were detected by Western blot analysis. Senescence-associated ß-galactosidase (SA-ß-gal) staining was performed to evaluate cell senescence. Results Pretreatment with TSA at low concentrations (10, 20 and 40 µg/mL) for 24 hours did not affect cell viability, while high concentrations (80, 160 and 320 µg/mL) decreased cell viability significantly. In addition, 10, 20 and 40 µg/mL of TSA promoted H2O2-mediated cell viability of HUVECs in a concentration-dependent manner. Compared with the control group, the positive rate of SA-ß-gal staining in the model group increased, while the positive rate in the TSA group was significantly lower than that in the model group. The expression levels of P21 and P16 protein in the model group were higher than those in the control group, while SIRT1 and p-eNOS/eNOS were lower than those in the control group. Conversely, the expression of P21 and P16 proteins in the TSA group were lower than those in the model group, and SIRT1 and p-eNOS/eNOS were higher in the TSA group than those in the model group. Transfected with SIRT1 siRNA significantly down-regulated the expression of SIRT1 in HUVECs and the positive rate of SA-ß-gal staining was notably raised when SIRT1 was silenced in TSA-treated HUVECs. Conclusion TSA attenuates H2O2-induced endothelial cell senescence by activating SIRT1/eNOS signaling pathway.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Chronic psychosocial stress is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. In view of the important role of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) in human pathophysiology, we studied the role of DPP-4 in stress-related vascular aging in mice, focusing on oxidative stress and the inflammatory response. METHODS AND RESULTS: Male mice were randomly divided into a non-stress group and an immobilization stress group treated for 2 weeks. Chronic stress accelerates aortic senescence and increases plasma DPP-4 levels. Stress increased the levels of gp91phox, p22phox, p47phox, p67phox, p53, p27, p21, p16INK4A, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, intracellular adhesion molecule-1, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), MMP-9, cathepsin S (Cat S), and Cat K mRNAs and/or protein in the aorta of the stressed mice and decreased their levels of endothelial nitric oxide synthase and SirTuin1 (SirT1). DPP-4 inhibitors can improve stress-induced targeting molecules and morphological changes. In vitro, the inhibition of DPP-4 also alleviated the changes in the oxidative and inflammatory molecules in response to hydrogen peroxide in human umbilical vein endothelial cells. CONCLUSIONS: DPP-4 inhibition can improve vascular aging in stressed mice, possibly by improving oxidative stress production and vascular inflammation. Our results suggest that DPP-4 may become a new therapeutic target for chronic stress-related vascular aging in metabolic cardiovascular diseases.

RESUMO

To investigate the effect of triptolide on cognitive dysfunction in vascular dementia rats and its effect on SIRT1/NF-κB pathway,fifty healthy male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 5 groups: Sham operation group( Sham group),vascular dementia model group( 2 VO group),triptolide intraperitoneal injection group( TR group),triptolide intraperitoneal injection + EX527 intracerebroventricular administration group( T+E group),EX527 intracerebroventricular administration group( EX527 group). After 4 weeks of modeling,Morris water maze test and object recognition test were used to evaluate the learning and memory ability of rats. The morphological changes of hippocampus in each group were observed in brain tissue. The chemical colorimetry was used to detect the activities of SOD and MDA in hippocampus. IL-6 and TNF-α levels were detected by ELISA. Western blot was used to detect the expression of SIRT1,NF-κB,IκBα and caspase 3 in hippocampus. The results showed that compared with the Sham group,the learning and memory ability of the vascular dementia model rats was reduced,the SOD activity in the hippocampus was decreased,the MDA activity and IL-6 level were increased,the neuronal degeneration changed significantly,the expression of SIRT1 and IκBα was decreased and the expression of caspase 3 and NF-κB was significantly increased. After intervention by triptolide,the level of oxidative stress and the degenerative changes in hippocampus were significantly slowed down. The expression of SIRT1 and IκBα protein was increased and the expression of caspase 3 and NF-κB was significantly decreased. While,after intervention by triptolide and EX527,the expression of SIRT1 was decreased,the levels of oxidative stress and neuronal degeneration in the hippocampus were aggravated,and the learning and memory ability was reduced. The results showed that triptolide could improve cognitive impairment in vascular dementia rats and its mechanism may be related to SIRT1/NF-κB signaling pathway.

RESUMO

AIMS: The aim of the presente study was to examine the effects of oral gallic acid (GA) administration on the brown adipose tissue of obese mice fed with high-fat diet. New mechanisms and interactions pathways in thermogenesis were accessed through bioinformatics analyses. MAIN METHODS: Swiss male mice were divided into four groups and fed during 60 days with: standard diet, standard diet combined with gallic acid, high-fat diet and high-fat diet combined with gallic acid. Body weight, food intake, and blood parameters (glucose tolerance test, total-cholesterol, high-density low-c, triglyceride and glucose levels) were evaluated. Brown and subcutaneous white adipose tissue histological analysis were performed. SIRT1 and PGC1-α mRNA expression in the brown adipose tissue were assessed. KEY FINDINGS: Our main findings showed that the gallic acid improved glucose tolerance and metabolic parameters. These results were accompanied by bioinformatics analyses that evidenced SIRT1 as main target in the thermogenesis process, confirmed as increased SIRT1 mRNA expression was evidenced in the brown adipose tissue. SIGNIFICANCE: Together, the data suggest that the gallic acid effect in brown adipose tissue may improve body metabolism, glucose homeostasis and increase thermogenesis.

RESUMO

Lithocholic acid (LCA) is both a secondary bile acid and a vitamin D receptor (VDR) ligand. The VDR is activated by 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 and plays an important role in maintaining integrity of the intestinal mucosal barrier. LCA can also substitute for vitamin D to carry out the in vivo functions of vitamin D. However, it is unclear whether activation of the VDR by LCA affects mucosal barrier function. In the present study, we researched the protective effect of LCA on tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α)-induced intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunction in Caco-2 cells of the human epithelial intestinal adenocarcinoma cell line. Caco-2 cell monolayers were pretreated with LCA and then exposed to 100 ng/mL TNF-α. The results showed that LCA alleviated the decrease in transepithelial electrical resistance and the increase in FITC-Dextran flux induced by TNF-α. LCA ameliorated the TNF-α-induced decrease in protein expression and distribution of ZO-1, E-cadherin, Occludin, and Claudin-1, which are tight junction markers. Additionally, the LCA treatment effectively counteracted TNF-α-mediated downregulation of silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1), nuclear factor erythroid2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), and heme oxygenase-1, which are related to oxidative stress. Increases in NF-κB p-p65 and p-IκB-α induced by TNF-α were significantly inhibited by LCA. Considering all these, the present study indicates that LCA has a significant protective effect on TNF-α-induced injury of intestinal barrier function through the VDR and suggests that suppressing NF-κB signaling and activating the SIRT1/Nrf2 pathway might be one of the mechanisms underlying the protective effect of LCA.

RESUMO

Objective To investigate the effect of fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) on the lipid accumulation and inflammation induced by palmitate treatment in L02 hepatocytes and the underlying mechanism. Methods L02 cells were infected with lentivirus expressing SIRT1 shRNA to knockdown SIRT1 expression. Wild-type and SIRT1-knockdown L02 cells were treated with 250 mol/L palmitate for 5 days, and then administrated with 1 g/ml FGF21 for 72 hours. Triglycerides in the cells were detected with the infinity triglycerides reagent. Malondialdehyde (MDA) in the cells was assessed by MDA detection assay. Tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) and interleukin 6 (IL-6) levels in supernatant were measured by ELISA. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels were tested by the specific Amplex red ROS detection assay kit from Thermo Fisher Company. The gene expression of SIRT1, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1α (PGC1α), superoxide dismutase 2 (SOD2) and catalase (CAT) were measured by real-time quantitative PCR. The protein levels of SIRT1, PGC1α, SOD2 and CAT were detected by Western blot analysis. Mitochondrial membrane potentials were detected by the JC-1staining kit. Mitochondrial oxygen consumption rate (OCR) was detected with the Seahorse XF Mito stress test kit. Results Palmitate increased the triglycerides level, induced the oxidative stress in both the cells and the mitochondria, decreased the gene expression and protein levels of SIRT1, PGC1α, SOD2 and CAT, increased the levels of TNF-α and IL-6, decreased the mitochondrial membrane potential, and impaired the mitochondrial function. FGF21 treatment could attenuate all of these effects caused by palmitate, while SIRT1 knockdown blocked most of the FGF21 effects on the L02 hepatocytes. Conclusion FGF21 activates SIRT1 pathway and inhibites the lipid accumulation, improves the mitochondrial function, and decreases the oxidative stress as well as inflammation in palmitate-treated L02 cells.

RESUMO

AIM: A growing body of evidence supports the impact of intermittent fasting on normalizing body metabolism and lowering oxidative stress and inflammation. Mounting evidence confirms that oxidative stress and chronic inflammation trigger the way for the development of metabolic diseases, such as diabetes. This research was conducted to evaluate the impact of Ramadan intermittent fasting (RIF) on the expression of cellular metabolism (SIRT1 and SIRT3) and antioxidant genes (TFAM, SOD2, and Nrf2). METHODS: Fifty-six (34 males and 22 females) overweight and obese subjects and six healthy body weight controls were recruited and monitored before and after Ramadan. RESULTS: Results showed that the relative gene expressions in obese subjects in comparison to counterpart expressions of controls for the antioxidant genes (TFAM, SOD2, and Nrf2) were significantly increased at the end of Ramadan, with percent increments of 90.5%, 54.1% and 411.5% for the three genes, respectively. However, the metabolism-controlling gene (SIRT3) showed a highly significant (P < 0.001) downregulation accompanied with a trend for reduction in SIRT1 gene at the end of Ramadan month, with percent decrements of 61.8% and 10.4%, respectively. Binary regression analysis revealed significant positive correlation (P < 0.05) between high energy intake (>2000 Kcal/day vs. <2000 Kcal/day) and expressions of SOD2 and TFAM (r = 0.84 and r = 0.9, respectively). CONCLUSION: Results suggest that RIF ameliorates the genetic expression of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and metabolic regulatory genes. Thus, RIF presumably may entail a protective impact against oxidative stress and its adverse metabolic-related derangements in non-diabetic obese patients.

RESUMO

Sirtuin1 (SIRT1) is a mammalian NAD+-dependent type III deacetylase that plays paramount roles in diverse cellular processes. The nucleocytoplasmic shuttling of SIRT1 was discovered more than a decade ago, but the roles of subcellular SIRT1 localization in tumor progression remain unclear. Here, we report that cytoplasmic SIRT1 acts as a tumor suppressor in ovarian carcinoma. By creating ovarian carcinoma cell lines overexpressing wild-type SIRT1 and nuclear localization signals (NLSs) mutated SIRT1 together with both unbiased proteomic and acetylomic approaches and Transwell assays, we identified that mutations in the NLS sequences prevented SIRT1 from entering the nucleus, resulting in the predominant cytoplasmic localization of SIRT1; the cytoplasmic localization of SIRT1 suppressed the mesenchymal program, activated the epithelial program, and inhibited the migration and invasion of tumor cells, thus providing experimental evidence that SIRT1 functions as a tumor suppressor or oncogene may depend on its subcellular localization. Altogether, our findings may highlight a novel role of cytoplasmic SIRT1 in ovarian carcinoma, providing new possible insights for studies investigating the role of SIRT1 in tumor progression.

RESUMO

Characterization of circulating tumor cells (CTC) is important to prevent death caused by the metastatic spread of cancer cells because CTC are associated with distal metastasis and poor prognosis of breast cancer. We have previously developed suspension cells (SC) using breast cancer cell lines and demonstrated their high metastatic potential. As survival of CTC is highly variable from a few hours to decades, herein we cultured SC for an extended time and named them adapted suspension cells (ASC). Silent mating-type information regulation 2 homolog 1 (SIRT1) expression increased in ASC, which protected the cells from apoptosis. High SIRT1 expression was responsible for the suppression of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) activity and downregulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in ASC. As the inhibition of NF-κB and ROS production in SIRT1-depleted ASC contributed to the development of resistance to apoptotic cell death, maintenance of a low ROS level and NF-κB activity in ASC is a crucial function of SIRT1. Thus, SIRT1 overexpression may play an important role in growth adaptation of SC because SIRT1 expression is increased in long-term rather than in short-term cultures.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Angiotensin II (Ang II), released by the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), contributes to the modulatory role of the RAAS in adipose tissue dysfunction. Investigators have shown that inhibition of AngII improved adipose tissue function and insulin resistance in mice with metabolic syndrome. Heme Oxygenase-1 (HO-1), a potent antioxidant, has been demonstrated to improve oxidative stress and adipocyte phenotype. Molecular effects of high oxidative stress include suppression of sirtuin-1 (SIRT1), which is amenable to redox manipulations. The mechanisms involved, however, in these metabolic effects of the RAAS remain incompletely understood. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that AngII-induced oxidative stress has the potential to suppress adipocyte SIRT1 via down regulation of HO-1. This effect of AngII will, in turn, upregulate mineralocorticoid receptor (MR). The induction of HO-1 will rescue SIRT1, hence improving oxidative stress and adipocyte phenotype. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined the effect of AngII on lipid accumulation, oxidative stress, and inflammatory cytokines in mouse pre-adipocytes in the presence and absence of cobalt protoporphyrin (CoPP), HO-1 inducer, tin mesoporphyrin (SnMP), and HO-1 inhibitor. Our results show that treatment of mouse pre-adipocytes with AngII increased lipid accumulation, superoxide levels, inflammatory cytokine levels, interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα), and adiponectin levels. This effect was attenuated by HO-1 induction, which was further reversed by SnMP, suggesting HO-1 mediated improvement in adipocyte phenotype. AngII-treated pre-adipocytes also showed upregulated levels of MR and suppressed SIRT1 that was rescued by HO-1. Subsequent treatment with CoPP and SIRT1 siRNA in mouse pre-adipocytes increased lipid accumulation and fatty acid synthase (FAS) levels, suggesting that beneficial effects of HO-1 are mediated via SIRT1. CONCLUSION: Our study demonstrates for the first time that HO-1 has the ability to restore cellular redox, rescue SIRT1, and prevent AngII-induced impaired effects on adipocytes and the systemic metabolic profile.

RESUMO

Creating access to DNA double-strand break (DSB) sites in the chromatin context is an essential step during the repair process, but much remains to be determined about its regulatory mechanisms. Here, using a novel reporter cassette for simultaneous detection of homologous recombination (HR) and nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) at the same chromosomal site, we report that the efficiency of HR but not NHEJ negatively correlates with nucleosome density. We demonstrate that PARP1 is required for HR by modulating nucleosome density at damage sites. Mechanistic studies indicate that the ATPase domain of BRG1 and the ZnF domain of SIRT1 interact with poly-ADP ribose (PAR) in response to DNA damage, and are responsible for bringing the two factors to broken DNA ends. At DNA damage sites, BRG1 and SIRT1 physically interact, whereupon SIRT1 deacetylates BRG1 at lysine residues 1029 and 1033, stimulating its ATPase activity to remodel chromatin and promote HR.

RESUMO

This study investigated the effects of restricted feeding on the growth performance, oxidative stress and inflammation of Megalobrama amblycephala fed high-carbohydrate (HC) diets. Fish (46.94 ±â€¯0.04 g) were randomly assigned to four groups containing the satiation of a control diet (30% carbohydrate) and three satiate levels (100% (HC1), 80% (HC2) and 60% (HC3)) of the HC diets (43% carbohydrate) for 8 weeks. Results showed that HC1 diet remarkably decreased final weight (FW), weight gain rate (WGR), specific growth rate (SGR), feed conversion ratio (FCR), hepatic activities of total anti-oxidation capacity (T-AOC), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT), the AMP/ATP ratio, the p-AMPKα/t-AMPKα ratio, sirtuin-1 (SIRT1) protein expression and hepatic transcriptions of AMPKα2, SIRT1, nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), catalase (CAT), manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD), glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPx1) and interleukin10 (IL 10) compared to the control group, whereas the opposite was true for protein efficiency ratio (PER), nitrogen retention efficiency (NRE), energy retention efficiency (ERE), plasma glucose levels, alanine transaminase (AST) and aspartate aminotransferase (ALT) activities, hepatic contents of malondialdehyde (MDA), tumour necrosis factor α (TNF α) and interleukin 1ß (IL 1ß), ATP and AMP contents and hepatic transcriptions of kelch-like ECH associating protein 1 (Keap1), IkB kinase α (IKK α), nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), TNF α, IL 1ß, interleukin 6 (IL 6) and transforming growth factor ß (TGF ß). As for the HC groups, fish fed the HC2 diet obtained relatively high values of SGR, PER, NRE, ERE, hepatic activities of T-AOC, SOD and CAT, the AMP/ATP ratio, the p-AMPKα/t-AMPKα ratio, SIRT1 protein expression and hepatic transcriptions of AMPKα2, Nrf2, CAT, copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD), Mn-SOD, GPx1, glutathione S-transferase (GST) and interleukin10 (IL 10), while the opposite was true for hepatic content of IL 6 and transcription of IKK α. Overall, an 80% satiation improved the growth performance and alleviated the oxidative stress and inflammation of blunt snout bream fed HC diets via the activation of the AMPK-SIRT1 pathway and the up-regulation of the activities and transcriptions of Nrf2-modulated antioxidant enzymes coupled with the depression of the levels and transcriptions of the NF-κB-mediated pro-inflammatory cytokines.

RESUMO

The aim of this paper was to investigate the effect of SIRT1/TSC_2 signal axis on leukemia stem cell senescence induced by ginsenoside Rg_1. CD34~+CD38~- leukemia stem cells(CD34~+CD38~-LSCs) was isolated by magnetic cell sorting(MACS) and divided into two groups. The control group cells were routinely cultured, 40 µmol·L~(-1) ginsenoside Rg_1 was added to the control group for co-culture in Rg_1 group. The effect of Rg_l to induce CD34~+CD38~-LSCs senescence were evaluated by senescence-associated ß-Galactosidase(SA-ß-Gal) staining, cell cycle assay, CCK-8 and Colony-Assay. The expression of senescence associated SIRT1, TSC_2 mRNA and protein was examined by Real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR(FQ-PCR) and Western blot. The results showed that the CD34~+CD38~-LSCs could effectively be isolated by MACS, and the purity of CD34~+CD38~-LSCs is up to(95.86±3.04)%. Compared with the control group, the percentage of positive cells expressed SA-ß-Gal in the Rg_1 group is increased, the senescence morphological changes were observed in the CD34~+CD38~-LSCs in the Rg_1 group. The proliferation inhibition rate and the number of cells entered G_0/G_1 phase in the Rg_1 group were increased, but the colony-formed ability was decreased, Rg_1 could significantly inhibit the proliferation and self-renewal ability of CD34~+CD38~-LSCs. The expression of SIRT1 and TSC_2 mRNA and protein were down regulated in the Rg_1 group compared with the control group. Our research implied that Rg_1 may induce the senescence of CD34~+CD38~-LSCs and SIRT1/TSC_2 signal axis plays a significant role in this process.

RESUMO

Cytotoxic effects of (R)-4'-methylklavuzon were investigated on hepatocellular carcinoma cells (HuH-7 and HepG2) and HuH-7 EpCAM+/CD133+ cancer stem cells. IC50 of (R)-4'-methylklavuzon was found as 1.25 µM for HuH-7 parental cells while it was found as 2.50 µM for HuH-7 EpCAM+/CD133+ cancer stem cells. (R)-4'-methylklavuzon tended to show more efficient in vitro cytotoxicity with its lower IC50 values on hepatocellular carcinoma cell lines compared to its lead molecule, goniothalamin and FDA-approved drugs, sorafenib and regorafenib. Cell-based Sirtuin/HDAC enzyme activity measurements revealed that endogenous Sirtuin/HDAC enzymes were reduced by 40% compared to control. SIRT1 protein levels were upregulated indicating triggered DNA repair mechanism. p53 was overexpressed in HepG2 cells. (R)-4'-methylklavuzon inhibited CRM1 protein providing increased retention of p53 and RIOK2 protein in the nucleus. HuH-7 parental and EpCAM+/CD133+ cancer stem cell spheroids lost intact morphology. 3D HepG2 spheroid viabilities were decreased in a correlation with upregulation in p53 protein levels.

RESUMO

Common environmental pollutants and drugs encountered in everyday life can cause toxic damage to the body through oxidative stress, inflammatory stimulation, induction of apoptosis, and inhibition of energy metabolism. Silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1), a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent deacetylase, is a member of the evolutionarily highly conserved Sir2 (silent information regulator 2) superprotein family, which is located in the nucleus and cytoplasm. It can deacetylate protein substrates in various signal transduction pathways to regulate gene expression, cell apoptosis and senescence, participate in the process of neuroprotection, energy metabolism, inflammation and the oxidative stress response in living organisms, and plays an important role in toxic damage caused by toxicants and in the process of SIRT1 activator/inhibitor antagonized toxic damage. This review summarizes the role that SIRT1 plays in toxic damage caused by toxicants via its interactions with protein substrates in certain signaling pathways.

RESUMO

Mercury (Hg), a significant toxic metal for nephrotoxicity, can be found in food (vegetable and seafood) and drinking water by contamination. Oxidative stress is involved in inorganic Hg-induced nephrotoxicity, but the Sirtuin1 (Sirt1)/Nrf2/OH-1 pathway and sodium (Na)/calcium (Ca) ions actions in mercuric chloride (HgCl2)-induced nephrotoxicity remains unclear to date. In this study, Kunming mice were treated HgCl2 (5 mg/kg) for 24 h to evaluate potential mechanism. Here, along with Sirt1 activation, pale kidney, hisologic conditions, typical apoptotic changes and TUNEL positive nuclei were observed under acute HgCl2 exposure. Specifically, although HgCl2 increased the expression of Nrf2, Keap1, OH-1 and NQO1, the mRNA levels of GSS, GCLC and GCLM showed no significant alterations in mice kidney. Moreover, mice exposed to HgCl2 decreased the concentrations of Mg, K, P, Mn, Fe, Zn, and elevated Na, Ca, Cu and Se in kidney. It was also observed that HgCl2 suppressed the ATPases (Na+-K+-ATPase, Ca2+-ATPase, Mg2+-ATPase and Ca2+-Mg2+-ATPase) activities and decreased the mRNA levels of Atp1a1, Atp1a2 in the kidney. Further study showed that HgCl2 elevated Na+ concentrations by markedly increased the mRNA levels of Na+ transporter. The present study revealed that HgCl2 induced Sirt1/Nrf2/OH-1 pathway activation while did not inhibit apoptosis in kidney of mice. Additionally, HgCl2 regulates Na+ concentrations, which might create secondary disorders in absorption and excretion of other ions. Altogether we assume that Sirt1/Nrf2/Na+/Ca2+ pathway might be a potential therapeutic target for treating acute HgCl2 induced nephrotoxicity.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Atherosclerosis is a condition with the vascular accumulation of lipid plaques, and its main major contributing factor is endothelial injury induced by oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL). Salidroside (SAL) is the primary active ingredient of Rhodiola rosea, and exhibits antioxidant properties on endothelial cells and alleviates atherosclerosis. However, the effect of SAL on autophagy in ox-LDL-induced vascular endothelial injury remains unclear. Here, we investigated the effect and underlying mechanisms of SAL on autophagy in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). METHODS: HUVECs were incubated with ox-LDL to induce in vitro atherosclerosis model. The cell viability and injury were evaluated by cell counting kit-8 (CCK-8) assay and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release assay. The oxidative stress was evaluated by NADPH oxidase, malondialdehyde (MDA) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities. Immunofluorescence was performed to detect autophagy using LC3ß antibody. Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) and western blot were performed to measure the mRNA expressions of SIRT1 and Forkhead box O1 (FOXO1). Nicotinamide (NAM) and AS1842856 were used to inhibit activities of SIRT1 and FOXO1, respectively. RESULTS: Exposure of HUVECs to ox-LDL (100 µg/mL) reduced cell viability, increased cellular MDA, and reduced SOD in a concentration-dependent manner. The pretreatment with SAL (20, 50 and 100 µM) significantly enhanced the cell viability and decreased LDH release in HUVECs exposed to ox-LDL (100 µg/mL). ox-LDL induced autophagy in HUVECs, which was further enhanced by pretreatment with SAL. However, SAL attenuated increase in oxidative stress in HUVECs induced by ox-LDL. ox-LDL reduced mRNA and protein expressions of SIRT1 and FOXO1, which could be reversed by SAL. The protective, anti-oxidative and pro-autophagic effects of SAL could be obviously abolished by cotreatment with SIRT1 inhibitor or FOXO1 inhibitor. CONCLUSION: Salidroside shows protective effect on endothelial cell induced by ox-LDL, and the mechanisms might be related to autophagy induction via increasing SIRT1 and FoxO1 expressions.

RESUMO

Lonicera caerulea berry polyphenols (LCBP) are known to reduce cholesterol accumulation. Currently, it is unknown whether LCBP can activate Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) to regulate the formation of RAW264.7 macrophage foam cells. In this study, the effect of LCBP on lipid accumulation in macrophages was evaluated. Fluorescently labeled ox-LDL and 25-NBD cholesterol were used to detect the ox-LDL uptake and cholesterol outflow rate from macrophages. Gene silencing was performed using siRNA to detect changes in the expression of the ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1), sterol regulatory element-binding protein 2 (SREBP2), and SIRT1 proteins using Western blotting, and changes in the expression of miR-33 were detected by real-time polymerase chain reaction. The results showed that treatment with 80 µg/mL LCBP significantly inhibited the accumulation of lipids in RAW264.7 macrophages induced by ox-LDL and reduced intracellular cholesterol levels by activating SIRT1 to enhance the expression of ABCA1, a cholesterol efflux gene, but not independent effect. Of the three key LCBP components investigated, chlorogenic acid was found to activate SIRT1 and regulate the expression of the cholesterol-related factors ABCA1, SREBP2, and miR-33; cyanidin-3-glucoside and catechins were effective to a lesser extent. Our results suggest a novel hypolipidemic mechanism of LCBP.

RESUMO

Sirtuin 1 is one of the regulators of cell growth and survival and its inhibition is suggested as a suitable mechanism to overcome breast cancer development. In this study we explored the role of miR-211-5p in SIRT1/p53 pathway and its influence on breast cancer cell viability and apoptosis. Cells were transfected with miR-211-5p mimic and inhibitor to modulate cellular miR-211-5p levels in breast cancer cell lines, MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7. Gene expression of miR-211-5p and SIRT1 were measured with real-time PCR. SIRT1 protein level and the acetylation of p53 as well as SIRT1 activity were evaluated by Western blotting and fluorometry, respectively. In order to explore the direct attachment of miR-211-5p to the 3'-UTR of SIRT1 mRNA, luciferase reporter assay was applied. Cell viability in response to miR-211-5p was studied by MTT assay and apoptosis was assessed by annexin V labeling followed by flow cytometry. Results showed that SIRT1 gene and protein expression were inhibited by miR-211-5p and the 3'-UTR of SIRT1 was found to be directly targeted by miR-211-5p. Inhibition of SIRT1 expression resulted in its reduced activity. Up-regulation of miR-211-5p was also followed by a significant decline in the acetylation status of p53 which was associated with remarkable decreased cell viability and induction of apoptosis in breast cancer cells. Antisense oligonucleotide of miR-211-5p acted as its inhibitor and exerted opposite effects both on SIRT1 expression and cell apoptosis. In conclusion, inhibition of SIRT1 by miR-211-5p could effectively reduce breast cancer cell survival and cause cell death and therefore might be considered a seemly mechanism for designing anticancer therapies.
