Overexpression of SREBP1 (sterol regulatory element binding protein 1) promotes de novo fatty acid synthesis and triacylglycerol accumulation in goat mammary epithelial cells.

Sterol regulatory element binding protein 1 (SREBP1; gene name SREBF1) is known to be the master regulator of lipid homeostasis in mammals, including milk fat synthesis. The major role of SREBP1 in controlling milk fat synthesis has been demonstrated in bovine mammary epithelial cells. Except for a demonstrated role in controlling the expression of FASN, a regulatory role of SREBP1 on milk fat synthesis is very likely, but has not yet been demonstrated in goat mammary epithelial cells (GMEC). To explore the regulatory function of SREBP1 on de novo fatty acids and triacylglycerol synthesis in GMEC, we overexpressed the mature form of SREBP1 (active NH2-terminal fragment) in GMEC using a recombinant adenovirus vector (Ad-nSREBP1), with Ad-GFP (recombinant adenovirus of green fluorescent protein) as control, and infected the GMEC for 48 h. In infected cells, we assessed the expression of 20 genes related to milk fat synthesis using real time-quantitative PCR, the protein abundance of SREBP1 and FASN by Western blot, the production of triacylglycerol, and the fatty acid profile. Expression of SREBF1 was modest in mammary compared with the other tissues in dairy goats but its expression increased approximately 30-fold from pregnancy to lactation. The overexpression of the mature form of SREBP1 was confirmed by >200-fold higher expression of SREBF1 in Ad-nSREBP1 compared with Ad-GFP. We observed no changes in amount of the precursor form of SREBP1 protein but a >10-fold increase of the mature form of SREBP1 protein with Ad-nSREBP1. Compared with Ad-GFP cells (control), Ad-nSREBP1 cells had a significant increase in expression of genes related to long-chain fatty acid activation (ACSL1), transport (FABP3), desaturation (SCD1), de novo synthesis of fatty acids (ACSS2, ACLY, IDH1, ACACA, FASN, and ELOVL6), and transcriptional factors (NR1H3 and PPARG). We observed a >10-fold increase in expression of INSIG1 but SCAP was downregulated by Ad-nSREBP1. Among genes related to milk fat synthesis and lipid droplet formation, only LPIN1 and DGAT1 were upregulated by Ad-nSREBP1. Compared with the Ad-GFP, the cellular triacylglycerol content was higher and the percentage of C16:0 and C18:1 increased, whereas that of C16:1, C18:0, and C18:2 decreased in Ad-nSREBP1 cells. Overall, the data provide strong support for a central role of SREBP1 in the regulation of milk fat synthesis in goat mammary cells.

Highly sensitive recombinant antibodies capable of reliably differentiating heart-type fatty acid binding protein from noncardiac isoforms.

During recent times, heart-type fatty acid binding protein (hFABP) has gained increasing credence as a promising cardiac biomarker. This is largely due to its rapid myocardial release and subsequent clearance kinetics, which are superior to those of myoglobin and offer an earlier diagnostic window than the troponins. Realization of its full diagnostic and prognostic potential is dependent on accessibility to robust hFABP-specific assays. Here we describe a rational strategy for generation and screening of hFABP-specific avian-derived recombinant antibodies. These antibodies were confirmed to be exquisitely specific for hFABP, with no cross-reactivity observed in a representative panel of the most homologous non-heart-type FABP isoforms. All of the antibodies tested exhibited single-figure nanomolar affinities, and their analytical potential was demonstrated in a simple inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) format that returned an impressive limit of quantitation (LOQ) value of 1.9 ng/ml. The cumulative results underline the potential value of these antibodies as enabling reagents for use in a variety of immunodiagnostic configurations.

Serum 99th centile values for two heart-type fatty acid binding protein assays.

We have previously demonstrated that heart-type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) is an independent prognostic marker for survival after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). This study aimed to define the 99th centile values for H-FABP as determined with two different assays, and to study the relationship with age, gender and renal function.

Solution structure of fatty acid-binding protein from human brain.

Human brain-type fatty acid-binding protein (B-FABP) has been recombinantly expressed in Escherichia coli both unlabelled and 15N-enriched for structure investigation in solution using high-resolution NMR spectroscopy. The sequential assignments of the 1H and 15N resonances were achieved by applying multidimensional homo- and heteronuclear NMR experiments. The ensemble of the 20 final energy-minimized structures, representing human B-FABP in solution, have been calculated based on a total of 2490 meaningful distance constraints. The overall B-FABP structure exhibits the typical backbone conformation described for other members of the FABP family, consisting often antiparallel beta-strands (betaA to betaJ) that form two almost orthogonal beta-sheets, a helix-turn-helix motif that closes the beta-barrel on one side, and a short N-terminal helical loop. A comparison with the crystal structure of the same protein complexed with docosahexaenoic acid reveals only minor differences in both secondary structure and overall topology. Moreover, the NMR data indicate a close structural relationship between human B-FABP and heart-type FABP with respect to fatty acid binding inside the protein cavity.

Fatty acid-binding proteins of nervous tissue.

Fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs) are cytosolic 14-15 kDa proteins, which are supposed to be involved in fatty acid (FA) uptake, transport, and targeting. They may modulate FA concentration and in this way influence function of enzymes, membranes, ion channels and receptors, and gene expression and cellular growth and differentiation. Nine FABP types can be discerned with a specific tissue distribution. In spite of 30-70% amino acid sequence identity, they have a similar tertiary, beta-clam structure in which the FA is bound. Nervous tissue contains four FABP types with a distinct spatio-temporal distribution. Myelin (M)-FABP is only present in the peripheral nerves, brain (B)-FABP and epidermal (E)-FABP mainly in glial cells and neurons, respectively of pre- and perinatal brain, and heart (H)-FABP in adult brain. Possible functions of FABPs in the nervous system are discussed. Binding studies with a range of physiological FA showed no large differences between recombinant proteins of the four human FABP types in binding specificity and affinity, also not for polyunsaturated FA (PUFA). The transfer of FA from fixed liposomes to mitochondria was similarly promoted by the four types. A marked difference in conformational stability was observed with H-FABP > B-FABP > M-FABP > E-FABP. Surface epitopes of H-FABP showed reaction with anti-B-FABP antibodies, but no other cross-reactivity of FABP type and heterologous antibodies was observed. The functional significance of the distinct spatio-temporal pattern of the four FABP types remains to be elucidated.

Crystal structure and thermodynamic analysis of human brain fatty acid-binding protein.

Expression of brain fatty acid-binding protein (B-FABP) is spatially and temporally correlated with neuronal differentiation during brain development. Isothermal titration calorimetry demonstrates that recombinant human B-FABP clearly exhibits high affinity for the polyunsaturated n-3 fatty acids alpha-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid, and for monounsaturated n-9 oleic acid (K(d) from 28 to 53 nm) over polyunsaturated n-6 fatty acids, linoleic acid, and arachidonic acid (K(d) from 115 to 206 nm). B-FABP has low binding affinity for saturated long chain fatty acids. The three-dimensional structure of recombinant human B-FABP in complex with oleic acid shows that the oleic acid hydrocarbon tail assumes a "U-shaped" conformation, whereas in the complex with docosahexaenoic acid the hydrocarbon tail adopts a helical conformation. A comparison of the three-dimensional structures and binding properties of human B-FABP with other homologous FABPs, indicates that the binding specificity is in part the result of nonconserved amino acid Phe(104), which interacts with double bonds present in the lipid hydrocarbon tail. In this context, analysis of the primary and tertiary structures of human B-FABP provides a rationale for its high affinity and specificity for polyunsaturated fatty acids. The expression of B-FABP in glial cells and its high affinity for docosahexaenoic acid, which is known to be an important component of neuronal membranes, points toward a role for B-FABP in supplying brain abundant fatty acids to the developing neuron.

Mammary derived growth inhibitor is not a distinct protein but a mix of heart-type and adipocyte-type fatty acid-binding protein.

The amino acid sequence of the mammary derived growth inhibitor (MDGI) from bovine mammary gland (Böhmer, F.-D., Kraft, R., Otto, A. , Wernstedt, C., Hellman, U., Kurtz, A., Müller, T., Rohde, K., Etzold, G., Lehmann, W., Langen, P., Heldin, C.-H., and Grosse, R. (1987) J. Biol. Chem. 262, 15137-15143) revealed 95% identity to bovine heart fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP), explaining the observed immunocross-reactivity. However, a cDNA encoding MDGI has not been found to date. Artificial MDGI cDNA was expressed in an in vitro transcription/translation assay. Analysis by isoelectric focusing of the immunoprecipitated in vitro translation products of lactating bovine mammary gland mRNA did not indicate a protein corresponding to the in vitro translation product of artificial MDGI mRNA. Moreover, two-dimensional electrophoresis of bovine mammary gland proteins confirmed the absence of a protein with the pI of the in vitro translated artificial MDGI mRNA in bovine mammary gland and instead revealed, apart from H-FABP, an unknown protein that was recognized by anti-H-FABP antibodies. From lactating bovine mammary gland the cDNA for adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (A-FABP) was cloned. The in vitro translation of recombinant mRNA derived from this cDNA yielded a polypeptide that behaved like the unknown immunoreactive protein. Western blotting and immunofluorescence using monospecific antibodies demonstrated the coexistence of H-FABP and A-FABP in the lactating mammary gland. Taking into account that deviations of the MDGI sequence from the bovine H-FABP sequence correspond with A-FABP we attribute the structure originally reported as MDGI to a mix of these proteins.

Histochemical localization of heart-type fatty-acid binding protein in human and murine tissues.

Cellular fatty acid-binding proteins (FABP) are a highly conserved family of proteins consisting of several subtypes, among them the mammary-derived growth inhibitor (MDGI) which is quite homologous to or even identical with the heart-type FABP (H-FABP). The FABPs and MDGI have been suggested to be involved in intracellular fatty acid metabolism and trafficking. Recently, evidence for growth and differentiation regulating properties of MDGI and H-FABP was provided. Using four affinity-purified polyclonal antibodies against bovine and human antigen preparations, the cellular localization of MDGI/H-FABP in human and mouse tissues and organs was studied. The antibodies were weakly cross-reactive with adipose tissue extracts known to lack H-FABP, but failed to react by Western blot analysis with liver-type FABP (L-FABP) and intestinal-type FABP (I-FABP). MDGI/H-FABP protein was mainly detected in myocardium, skeletal and smooth muscle fibres, lipid and/or steroid synthesising cells (adrenals, Leydig cells, sebaceous glands, lactating mammary gland) and terminally differentiated epithelia of the respiratory, intestinal and urogenital tracts. The results provide evidence that expression of H-FABP is associated with an irreversibly postmitotic and terminally differentiated status of cells. Since all the antisera employed showed spatially identical and qualitatively equal immunostaining, it is suggested that human, bovine and mouse MDGI/H-FABP proteins share highly homologous epitopes.
