EHD1 impairs decidualization by regulating the Wnt4/β-catenin signaling pathway in recurrent implantation failure.Recurrent implantation failure (RIF) remains a critical and challenging problem in assisted reproductive technology mainly due to impaired decidualization. The endocytic and transcytotic activity in the endometrium are crucial for decidualization. The most representative endocytic gene is the C-terminal Eps15 homology domain-containing 1 (EHD1), but whether EHD1-mediated endocytic function is responsible for embryo implantation during decidualization remains unclear.

AMPK α1 mediates the protective effect of adiponectin against insulin resistance in INS-1 pancreatic β cells.The fat-derived protein adiponectin is known to reverse the effects of insulin resistance and to lower blood glucose levels. The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) signalling pathway plays a central role in metabolism and energy homeostasis. Here, to investigate the role of AMPK in the protective effect of adiponectin against insulin resistance, we established the model of high-glucose (HG)- and high-lipid (HL)-induced insulin resistance in INS-1 pancreatic β cells. We found that 25mM of glucose and 0.4mM of palmitic acid treatment significantly increased cell apoptosis and impaired insulin secretion in INS-1 cells. However, recombinant human adiponectin dramatically reduced HG- and/or HL-induced cell apoptosis and greatly improved insulin secretion. Interestingly, adiponectin treatment also activated AMPK signalling pathway by increasing the phosphorylation of Thr172 in the AMPK α subunit; 10μM of compound C, a potent AMPK inhibitor, blocked the protective effects of adiponectin against HG/HL-induced insulin resistance. Furthermore, knockout experiments by CRISPR/Cas9 technology showed that AMPK α1, but not AMPK α2, is involved in the protective effects of adiponectin. Taken together, adiponectin reversed the effects of insulin resistance via AMPK α1, which provides a novel insight into the protective mechanism of adiponectin and may be used as a new strategy for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY: Adiponectin can reverse the effects of insulin resistance and lower blood glucose levels. Here, adiponectin reduced HG/HL-induced cell apoptosis and greatly improved insulin secretion. These effects were blocked by AMPK inhibitor, compound C. Specifically, we found that AMPK α1, but not AMPK α2, mediates the protective effects of adiponectin, which provides a novel insight into the protective mechanism of adiponectin against insulin resistance.

Deletion of glutaredoxin promotes oxidative tolerance and intracellular infection in .Thiol-disulfide glutaredoxin systems of bacterial cytoplasm favor reducing conditions for the correct disulfide bonding of functional proteins, and therefore were employed by bacteria to defend against oxidative stress. has been shown to encode a putative glutaredoxin, Grx (encoded by ), while the underlying roles remain unknown. Here we suggest an unexpected role of Grx in oxidative tolerance and intracellular infection. The recombinant Grx was able to efficiently catalyze the thiol-disulfide oxidoreduction of insulin in the presence of DTT as an election donor. Unexpectedly, the deletion of resulted in a remarkably increased tolerance and survival ability of this bacteria when exposed to various oxidizing agents, including diamide, and copper and cadmium ions. Furthermore, loss of significantly promoted bacterial invasion and proliferation in human epithelial Caco-2 cells and murine macrophages, as well as a notably increasing invasion but not cell-to-cell spread in the murine fibroblasts L929 cells. More importantly, lacking the glutaredoxin exhibited more efficient proliferation and recovery in the spleens and livers of the infected mice, and hence became more virulent by upregulating the virulence factors, InlA and InlB. In summary, we here for the first time demonstrated that glutaredoxin plays a counterintuitive role in bacterial oxidative resistance and intracellular infection, which is the first report to provide valuable evidence for the role of glutaredoxins in bacterial infection, and more importantly suggests a favorable model to illustrate the functional diversity of bacterial Grx systems during environmental adaption and host infection.

Neuregulin-1 triggers GLUT4 translocation and enhances glucose uptake independently of insulin receptor substrate and ErbB3 in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes.During stress conditions such as pressure overload and acute ischemia, the myocardial endothelium releases neuregulin-1β (NRG-1), which acts as a cardioprotective factor and supports recovery of the heart. Recently, we demonstrated that recombinant human (rh)NRG-1 enhances glucose uptake in neonatal rat ventricular myocytes via the ErbB2/ErbB4 heterodimer and PI3Kα. The present study aimed to further elucidate the mechanism whereby rhNRG-1 activates glucose uptake in comparison to the well-established insulin and to extend the findings to adult models. Combinations of rhNRG-1 with increasing doses of insulin did not yield any additive effect on glucose uptake measured as H-deoxy-d-glucose incorporation, indicating that the mechanisms of the two stimuli are similar. In c-Myc-GLUT4-mCherry-transfected neonatal rat cardiomyocytes, rhNRG-1 increased sarcolemmal GLUT4 by 16-fold, similar to insulin. In contrast to insulin, rhNRG-1 did not phosphorylate IRS-1 at Tyr, indicating that IRS-1 is not implicated in the signal transmission. Treatment of neonatal rats with rhNRG-1 induced a signaling response comparable with that observed in vitro, including increased ErbB4-pTyr, Akt-pThr and Erk1/2-pThr/Tyr. In contrast, in adult cardiomyocytes rhNRG-1 only increased the phosphorylation of Erk1/2 without having any significant effect on Akt and AS160 phosphorylation and glucose uptake, suggesting that rhNRG-1 function in neonatal cardiomyocytes differs from that in adult cardiomyocytes. In conclusion, our results show that similar to insulin, rhNRG-1 can induce glucose uptake by activating the PI3Kα-Akt-AS160 pathway and GLUT4 translocation. Unlike insulin, the rhNRG-1-induced effect is not mediated by IRS proteins and is observed in neonatal, but not in adult rat cardiomyocytes.

New roles for prokineticin 2 in feeding behavior, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes: Studies in mice and humans.Prokineticin 2 (PROK2) is a hypothalamic neuropeptide that plays a critical role in the rhythmicity of physiological functions and inhibits food intake. PROK2 is also expressed in the main olfactory bulb (MOB) as an essential factor for neuro-and morphogenesis. Since the MOB was shown to be strongly involved in eating behavior, we hypothesized that PROK2 could be a new target in the regulation of food intake and energy homeostasis, through its effects in the MOB. We also asked whether PROK2 could be associated with the pathophysiology of obesity, the metabolic syndrome (MetS), and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in humans.

Long-term care, from neonatal period to adulthood, of children born small for gestational age.Children born small for gestational age (SGA) face an increased risk of health problems in later life, particularly persistent short stature, neurocognitive dysfunction, impaired renal and pulmonary function, decreased bone density, sensorineural hearing loss, premature adrenarche, and metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance appears to be a key component underlying these metabolic complications. Long-term, continuous, GH treatments in short children born SGA lead to a normalization of height through childhood to adulthood. Recombinant human GH has been proven to be relatively safe. We recommend early surveillance in a growth clinic for children born SGA without catch-up growth. Obesity, insulin resistance, and the risk of metabolic syndrome increase with catch-up growth, but short stature and cognitive dysfunction increase without catch-up growth in children born SGA. A solution to this catch-up dilemma is breast feeding for a minimum of 6 to 12 mo. Because the overall prevalence of metabolic risk factors is very low, routine evaluation of metabolic parameters is not recommended for all children born SGA, but it may be useful to consider metabolic evaluations in overweight or obese children born SGA. Since children born SGA have many risk factors, long-term management from neonate to adulthood is very important.

Adiponectin links maternal metabolism to uterine contractility.Adiponectin is secreted by adipose tissue and promotes insulin sensitivity. Low circulating adiponectin is associated with increased risk for preterm labor, but the influence of adiponectin on uterine myometrial physiology is unknown. We hypothesized that adiponectin receptors (AdipoRs) decrease myometrial contractility AMPK to promote uterine quiescence in pregnancy. Using quantitative RT-PCR, we found that nonpregnant or pregnant human and mouse myometrium express AdipoR1 and AdipoR2 mRNAs. We confirmed AdipoR2 protein expression in human and mouse myometrium, with increased abundance in late mouse pregnancy. Both recombinant adiponectin and a pharmacologic AdipoR agonist, AdipoRon, potently inhibited uterine myometrial strip contractions in physiologic organ bath. The relaxation was independent of contractile stimulus (oxytocin, KCl, U46619). AdipoR agonists increased AMPK phosphorylation in pregnant mouse myometrium, and the direct AMPK activator A769662 also relaxed myometrial strips. However, the AMPK inhibitor dorsomorphin (compound C) blocked AMPK phosphorylation but did not abolish relaxation with either AdipoRon or A769662. In summary, adiponectin inhibits myometrial contractility consistent with the possibility that it is a previously unrecognized link between maternal metabolism and pregnancy maintenance. We also identify a separate role for AMPK regulating myometrial contractions that may influence labor onset.-Vyas, V., Guerra, D. D., Bok, R., Powell, T., Jansson, T., Hurt, K. J.

Elucidating the role of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) in metabolic PCOS models.PCOS is the most common endocrinopathy in women; associated with obesity and insulin resistance (IR). IR leads to accumulation of advanced-glycation-end-products (AGEs) and their receptor, RAGE. PCOS patients have increased levels of vascular-endothelial-growth-factor (VEGF), interleukin 6/8 (IL-6/8) and anti-Mϋllerian-hormone (AMH). PEDF is a secreted-glycoprotein known for its anti-angiogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. We aimed to elucidate the role of PEDF in the pathogenesis and treatment of PCOS. We used a prenatal PCOS mouse model and fed the female offspring a high-fat-diet, inducing metabolic PCOS (met.PCOS) characteristics. Female offspring were divided into three groups: control; met.PCOS; met.PCOS+recombinant PEDF (rPEDF). Met.PCOS mice gained more weight, had elevated serum IL-6 and higher mRNA levels of AMH, PEDF and RAGE in their granulosa-cells (GCs) than met.PCOS+rPEDF mice. An in-vitro met.PCOS model in human GCs (KGN) line was induced by prolonged incubation with insulin/AGEs, causing development of IR. Under the same conditions, we observed an elevation of VEGF, IL-6/8 mRNAs, concomitantly with an increase in PEDF mRNA, intracellular protein levels, and an elevation of PEDF receptors (PEDF-Rs) mRNA and protein. Simultaneously, a reduction in the secretion of PEDF from GCs, was measured in the medium. The addition of rPEDF (5nM) activated P38 signaling, implying that PEDF-Rs maintained functionality, and negated AGE-induced elevation of IL-6/8 and VEGF mRNAs. Decreased PEDF secretion may be a major contributor to hyper-angiogenesis and chronic inflammation, which lie at the core of PCOS pathogenesis. rPEDF treatment may restore physiological angiogenesis-inflammatory balance, thus suggesting a potential therapeutic role in PCOS.

Mechanism of SEMA3G knockdown-mediated attenuation of high-fat diet-induced obesity.Obesity is a worldwide health problem. Semaphorins are involved in axonal guidance; however, the role of secretory semaphorin 3G (SEMA3G) in regulating adipocyte differentiation remains unclear. Microarray analysis showed that the SEMA3G gene was upregulated in an in vitro model of adipogenesis. In this study, SEMA3G was highly expressed in the white adipose tissue and liver. Analysis of 3T3-L1 cell and primary mouse preadipocyte differentiation showed that SEMA3G mRNA and protein levels were increased during the middle stage of cell development. In vitro experiments also showed that adipocyte differentiation was promoted by SEMA3G; however, SEMA3G inhibition using a recombinant lentiviral vector expressing a specific small hairpin RNA (shRNA) showed the opposite results. Mice were fed a chow or high-fat diet (HFD); knockdown of SEMA3G was found to inhibit weight gain, reduce fat mass in the tissues, prevent lipogenesis in the liver tissue, reduce insulin resistance and ameliorate glucose tolerance in HFD mice. Additionally, the effect of SEMA3G on HFD-induced obesity was activated through PI3K/Akt/GSK3β signaling in the adipose tissue and the AMPK/SREBP-1c pathway in the liver. Moreover, the plasma concentrations of SEMA3G and leptin were measured in 20 obese and 20 non-obese human subjects. Both proteins were increased in obese subjects, who also exhibited a lower level of adiponectin and presented with insulin resistance. In summary, we demonstrated that SEMA3G is an adipokine essential for adipogenesis, lipogenesis, and insulin resistance and is associated with obesity. SEMA3G inhibition may, therefore, be useful for treating diet-induced obesity and its complications.
