Roundup and Glyphogan are glyphosate-based herbicides containing the same concentration of glyphosate and confidential formulants. Formulants are declared as inert diluents but some are more toxic than glyphosate, such as the family of polyethoxylated alkylamines (POEA). We tested glyphosate alone, glyphosate-based herbicide formulations and POEA on the immature mouse Sertoli cell line (TM4), at concentrations ranging from environmental to agricultural-use levels. Our results show that formulations of glyphosate-based herbicides induce TM4 mitochondrial dysfunction (like glyphosate, but to a lesser extent), disruption of cell detoxification systems, lipid droplet accumulation and mortality at sub-agricultural doses...

The strong effects of classic brown adipose tissue (BAT) and recruited beige adipocytes in treatment of obesity and metabolic syndrome have been attracting increasing research interest. Cold treatment is an effective, convenient approach to stimulate BAT activity and induce white adipose tissue (WAT) browning. Here, we utilized prolonged cold exposure (from 2 h to 2 weeks in a 4° cold chamber) to elucidate dynamic changes in BAT and in WAT browning during acute and chronic cold exposure in mice. BAT mass decreased quickly, with reduced lipid droplet sizes within 8 h of cold exposure owing to the utilization of BAT pre-storage triglycerides, and subsequently increased during prolonged cold exposure...

Bioinformatics analyses of caleosin/peroxygenases (CLO/PXG) demonstrated that these genes are present in the vast majority of Viridiplantae taxa for which sequence data are available. Functionally active CLO/PXG proteins with roles in abiotic stress tolerance and lipid droplet storage are present in some Trebouxiophycean and Chlorophycean green algae but are absent from the small number of sequenced Prasinophyceaen genomes. CLO/PXG-like genes are expressed during dehydration stress in Charophyte algae, a sister clade of the land plants (Embryophyta)...

Meat quality is closely related to adipose tissues in ducks, and adipogenesis is controlled by a complex network of transcription factors tightly acting at different stages of differentiation especially in ducks. The aim of this study was to establish the preadipocyte in vitro culture system and understand the biological characteristics of expansion of duck adipocyte tissue at the cellular and molecular level. We isolated pre-adipocytes from the subcutaneous fat of three breeds of duck and differentiated them into mature adipocytes using a mixture of insulin, rosiglitazone, dexamethasone, 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine, and oleic acid over 0,2, 4, 6, and 8 days...

Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death in women. Small open reading frame (sORF)-encoded proteins or microproteins constitute a new class of molecules often transcribed from presumed long non-coding RNA transcripts (lncRNAs). The translation of some of these sORFs has been confirmed, but their cellular function and importance remains largely unknown. Here, we report the identification and characterization of a novel microprotein of 10 kDa, which we named Cancer-Associated Small Integral Membrane Open reading frame 1 (CASIMO1)...

The recent development of quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) has facilitated the irradiation of a mid-infrared laser beam that is specifically absorbed by a target molecular bond. Aiming for a selective delivery of laser energy to a specific absorption at 1,738 cm-1 by the ester bonds of triacylglycerol (TAG), a QCL beam with a wavenumber of 1,710 cm-1 was irradiated to 3T3-L1 adipocytes and preadipocytes. Neutral red staining, and FITC-labeled annexin V and ethidium homodimer-III assays revealed the occurrence of adipocyte-specific cell death 24 h after QCL irradiation...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a global pathogen of significant medical importance. A key aspect of its lifecycle is the ability to enter into an altered physiological state of non-replicating persistence during latency and resist elimination by the host immune system. One mechanism by which M. tuberculosis facilitates its survival during latency is by producing and metabolizing intracytoplasmic lipid droplets (LDs). LDs are semi-quasi organelles consisting of a neutral lipid core such as triacylglycerol surrounded by a phospholipid monolayer and proteins...

Kaempferol, a natural flavonoid, has the beneficial effects of preserving pancreatic β-cell mass and function, but its action on β-cell lipid metabolism still remains elusive. Recently, autophagy has been reported to play a major role in lipid metabolism in various cell types, but its role in pancreatic β-cell's lipid metabolism is rarely reported. Here, we investigated the role of kaempferol-induced autophagy in inhibition of lipid stores, ER stress and β-cell dysfunction in palmitic acid-challenged RIN-5F cells and isolated pancreatic islets...

Perilipins, an ancient family of lipid droplet-associated proteins, are embedded in a phospho-lipid monolayer of intracellular lipid droplets. The core of lipid droplets is composed of neutral fat, which mainly includes triglyceride and cholesterol ester. Perilipins are closely related to the function of lipid droplets, and they mediate lipid metabolism and storage. Therefore, perilipins play an important role in the development of obesity, diabetes, cancer, hepatic diseases, atherosclerosis, and carcinoma, which are caused by abnormal lipid metabolism...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) might induce systemic inflammatory responses that cause acute injuries to multiple organs. However, no direct evidence exists to determine whether CPB leads to adrenal cortex injury or to describe its underlying mechanism. METHODS: Twelve healthy adult beagles were randomly assigned into control and CPB groups. After cannulation, mild hypothermia CPB was performed in the CPB group but not in the control group. The serum concentrations of various cytokines, cortisol, and aldosterone were assessed...

Despite the importance of oilseeds to worldwide human nutrition, and more recently to the production of bio-based diesel fuels, the detailed mechanisms regulating seed oil biosynthesis remain partly understood, especially from a tissue-specific perspective. Here, we investigated the spatial distributions of lipid metabolites and transcripts involved in oil biosynthesis from seeds of two low-erucic acid genotypes of Brassica napus with high and low seed oil content. Integrated results from matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI) of lipids in situ, lipidome profiling of extracts from seed tissues, and tissue-specific transcriptome analysis revealed complex spatial distribution patterns of lipids and transcripts...

Diseases associated with the accumulation of lipid droplets are increasing in western countries. Lipid droplet biogenesis, structure and degradation are regulated by proteins of the perilipin family. Perilipin 5 has been shown to regulate basal lipolysis in oxidative tissues. We examine perilipin 5 in normal human tissues and in diseases using protein biochemical and microscopic techniques. Perilipin 5 was constitutively located at small lipid droplets in skeletal myocytes, cardiomyocytes and brown adipocytes...

Oil-in-water emulsions were prepared with 5% (w/v) carrot-enriched olive oil and stabilized with Tween 80 (TW), phosphatidylcholine (PC), citrus pectin (CP) or a combination of these emulsifiers. Additionally, the methylesterification degree (DM) of citrus pectin was modified, resulting in three different studied pectin structures: CP82, CP38 and CP10. All initial emulsions presented small initial oil droplet sizes and were submitted to an in vitro simulated gastric and small intestinal phase. The latter was executed in a kinetic way to determine the time dependency of the lipolysis reaction, micelle formation and carotenoid bioaccessibility...

Adipocyte differentiation is a tightly regulated process which requires the sequential and organized expression of numerous genes and proteins. Phosphorylation of cytoplasmic proteins and key transcription factors represents a critical regulatory mechanism of the process leading to adipocyte maturation and modulation of associated metabolic pathways. Despite the recognition of the importance of protein phosphorylation in adipocyte biology, relatively little is known about the role of specific kinases in thermogenic (brown or beige) adipocyte differentiation and function...

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common renal malignancy in adults, the incidence of which continues to increase. The lipid droplet protein perilipin 2 (PLIN2), which was originally considered an RNA transcript, is markedly expressed during adipocyte differentiation. In addition, it has been observed to be elevated in numerous types of cancer, including ccRCC; however, its essential function remains unclear in ccRCC. The present study examined the expression of PLIN2 in ccRCC, and aimed to determine the association between PLIN2 expression and patient survival...

The objective of the study is to calculate the role and underlying the molecular mechanisms of caveolin-1 (Cav-1) in atherosclerosis (AS). Cav-1 was mainly expressed in the endothelial cells of atherosclerotic lesions in both human patients and apolipoprotein E deficient (ApoE-/- ) mice. Cav-1 deficiency (Cav-1-/- ) attenuated high-fat diet (HFD)-induced atherosclerotic lesions in ApoE-/- mice, supported by the reduced aortic plaques. Cav-1-/- reduced the macrophage content and decreased the release of inflammation-related cytokines or chemokine in serum or abdominal aortas, accompanied with the inactivation of inhibitor κB kinase κ (IKKβ)/p65/IκBα signaling pathway...
