Intermittent Fasting Alleviates the Increase of Lipoprotein Lipase Expression in Brain of a Mouse Model of Alzheimer’s Disease: Possibly Mediated by β-hydroxybutyrate.

  1. Intermittent fasting has been demonstrated to guard in opposition to Alzheimer’s illness (AD), nevertheless, the mechanism is unclear.
  2. Histone acetylation and lipoprotein lipase (LPL) are concerned in AD development. Importantly, LPL has been documented to be regulated by histone deacetylases (HDACs) inhibitors (enhance histone acetylation stage) in adipocyte and mesenchymal stem cells, or by fasting in adipose and muscle tissues.
  3. In mind, nevertheless, whether or not histone acetylation or fasting regulates LPL expression is unknown. This examine was designed to reveal intermittent fasting could defend in opposition to AD by growing β-hydroxybutyrate, a HDACs inhibitor, to control LPL. We additionally investigated microRNA-29a expression associating with regulation of LPL and histone acetylation.
  4. The outcomes confirmed LPL mRNA expression was elevated and microRNA-29a expression was decreased within the cerebral cortex of AD mannequin mice (APP/PS1), which have been alleviated by intermittent fasting.
  5. No important variations have been discovered within the complete expression of LPL protein (brain-derived and situated in capillary endothelial cells from peripheral tissues) within the cerebral cortex of APP/PS1 mice. Additional examine indicated that LPL situated in capillary endothelial cells was decreased within the cerebral cortex of APP/PS1 mice, which was alleviated by intermittent fasting.
  6. LPL and microRNA-29a expression have been individually elevated and down-regulated in 2 μM Aβ25-35-exposed SH-SY5Y cells, however respectively decreased and up-regulated in 10 μM Aβ25-35-exposed cells, which have been all reversed by β-hydroxybutyrate.
  7. The rise of HDAC2/Three expression and the lower of acetylated H3K9 and H4K12 ranges have been alleviated in APP/PS1 mice by intermittent fasting remedy, as effectively in 2 or 10 μM Aβ25-35-exposed cells by β-hydroxybutyrate remedy.
  8. These findings above steered the outcomes from APP/PS1 mice have been per these from cells handled with 2 μM Aβ25-35. Curiously, LPL expression was lowered (0.2-folds) and microRNA-29a expression was up-regulated (1.7-folds) in HDAC2-silenced cells, however respectively elevated (1.3-folds) and down-regulated (0.8-folds) in HDAC3-silenced cells.
  9. Moreover, LPL expression was decreased in cells handled with microRNA-29a mimic and elevated with inhibitor remedy. In conclusion, intermittent fasting inhibits the rise of brain-derived LPL expression in APP/PS1 mice partly by β-hydroxybutyrate-mediated down-regulation of microRNA-29a expression. HDAC2/Three could also be implicated within the impact of β-hydroxybutyrate on microRNA-29a expression.

The motion of βhydroxybutyrate on the expansion, metabolism and international histone H3 acetylation of spontaneous mouse mammary tumours: proof of a βhydroxybutyrate paradox.

Ketone our bodies have each metabolic and epigenetic roles in most cancers. In a number of research, they confirmed an anti-cancer impact by way of inhibition of histone deacetylases; nevertheless, different research noticed sooner tumour progress. The associated molecule butyrate additionally inhibits progress of some most cancers cells and accelerates it in others.
This “butyrate paradox” is considered as a result of butyrate mediating histone acetylation and thus inhibiting cell proliferation in cancers that preferentially utilise glucose (the Warburg impact); whereas in cells that oxidise butyrate as a gasoline, it fails to succeed in inhibitory concentrations and might stimulate progress.
We handled transgenic mice bearing spontaneous MMTV-NEU-NT mammary tumours with the ketone physique β-hydroxybutyrate (β-OHB) and monitored tumour progress, metabolite concentrations and histone acetylation. In a cell line derived from these tumours, we additionally measured uptake of β-OHB and glucose, and lactate manufacturing, within the absence and presence of β-OHB.
β-OHB administration accelerated progress of MMTV-NEU-NT tumours, and their metabolic profile confirmed important will increase in ATP, glutamine, serine and choline-related metabolites.
The β-OHB focus inside the handled tumours, 0.46 ± 0.05 μmol/g, had no impact on histone acetylation as proven by western blots.
Cultured tumour cells incubated with 0.5 mM β-OHB confirmed β-OHB uptake that might be equal to 54% of glycolytic ATP phosphorylation and no important change in glucose consumption or lactate manufacturing.
These outcomes recommend {that a} β-OHB paradox could happen in these mammary tumours in a fashion analogous to the butyrate paradox.
At low β-OHB concentrations (<1 mM, as noticed in our tumour mannequin post-treatment), and within the absence of a Warburg impact, β-OHB is consumed and thus acts as an oxidative vitality supply and never as an epigenetic issue. This is able to clarify the rise in tumour progress after remedy, the metabolic profiles and the absence of an impact on histone H3 acetylation.

Pathway of programmed cell demise and oxidative stress induced by βhydroxybutyrate in dairy cow abomasum clean muscle cells and in mouse gastric clean muscle.

  • The administration of exogenous β-hydroxybutyrate (β-HB), in addition to fasting and caloric restriction, is a situation related to β-HB abundance and decreased urge for food in animals. Elevated β-HB and decreased urge for food exist concurrently in some illnesses, corresponding to bovine left displaced abomasums (LDA) and human continual gastritis.
  • Nonetheless, the results of β-HB on abdomen accidents haven’t been explored. To elucidate the potential results of exogenous β-HB on the abdomen, mice have been injected intraperitoneally with β-HB, and bovine abomasum clean muscle cells (BSMCs) have been handled with totally different concentrations of β-HB. We discovered that β-HB induced BSMCs endoplasmic reticulum- and mitochondria-mediated apoptotic cell demise.
  • β-HB promoted Bax expression and caspase-12, -9, and -Three activation whereas blocking Bcl-2 expression. β-HB additionally promoted AIF, EndoG launch and p53 expression. β-HB acted on key molecules within the apoptotic cell demise pathway and elevated p38 and c-June NH2-terminal kinase phosphorylation whereas inhibiting ERK phosphorylation and PCNA expression. β-HB upregulated P27 and P21 mRNA ranges whereas downregulating cyclin and CDK mRNA ranges, arresting the cell cycle.
  • These outcomes recommend that BSMCs handled with β-HB can induce oxidative stress, which could be prevented by intracellular calcium chelators BAPTA/AM however not antioxidant NAC.
  • Moreover, these outcomes recommend that β-HB causes ROS era by a Ca2+-dependent mechanism and that intracellular Ca2+ ranges play a important position in β-HB -induced apoptotic cell demise.
  • The affect of β-HB on programmed cell demise and oxidative stress in vivo was confirmed in murine experiments. For the primary time, we present oxidative stress results of β-HB on clean muscle. We suggest that β-HB is a potential reason for some abdomen illnesses, together with bovine LDA.
