Phenols fragment of Veronica ciliata Fisch. Ameliorate free radical-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease by mediating PI3K/Akt signaling pathway

ConclusionOur results indicate that PF effectively protect against hepatotoxicity induced by t-BHP through inhibiting the abnormal activation of PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and highlight the health benefits of PF regarding oxidative stress, proving it to be an important source of bioactive compounds associated with Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).Graphical abstract

In conclusion, the concept of an epigenetic clock is compelling, but caution should be taken in interpreting associations with age acceleration. Association tests of age acceleration should include age as a covariate.

This study aimed at investigating Sal-inhibited lipotoxicity and clarify its potential mechanisms. Our study indicated that Sal significantly reversed palmitic acids-induced injury in dose-dependent manner in AML-12 mouse hepatocytes, accompanied with improvement of oxidative stress and mitochondrial damage. Mechanistic analysis revealed that Sal protected hepatic lipotoxicity via reversing TLR4/MAPKs (including JNK, p38, and ERk1/2) and p53 activation, independent from autophagy, AMPK, and Akt pathways. Moreover, TLR4 inhibition also contributed to salidroside-reduced lipids deposition. In sum, this research clearly demon...

ConclusionsPMRWE and PMRPWE alleviated NAFLD through promoting mitochondrial β oxidation by enhancing liver CPT1A activity. Stilbenes (including TSG, polydatin and resveratrol) and anthraquinones (including physcion, emodin and rhein) may be the main active compounds contributing to the lipid-lowering activity provided by PMRWE and PMRPWE.Graphical abstract

Abstract To overcome the rising burdens of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, mechanistic linkages in mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation and hepatic injury are critical. As ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) gene oversees DNA integrity and mitochondrial homeostasis, we analyzed mRNAs and total proteins or phosphoproteins by arrays in subjects with healthy liver, fatty liver or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Functional genomics approaches were used for DNA damage or cell growth events. The effects of fatty acid-induced toxicity in mitochondrial health, DNA integrity and cell proliferation were validated in HuH-...

miR‑146a improves hepatic lipid and glucose metabolism by targeting MED1. Int J Mol Med. 2019 Dec 27;: Authors: Li K, Zhao B, Wei D, Wang W, Cui Y, Qian L, Liu G Abstract Non‑alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one of the most common chronic liver diseases worldwide. Increasing evidence has shown that microRNAs (miRNAs) play a vital role in the progression of NAFLD. The aim of the present study was to examine the expression level and roles of miR‑146a in fatty liver of high‑fat diet (HFD) and ob/ob mice and fatty acid‑treated hepatic cells using RT‑qPCR and western blot analysis....

In conclusion, silybin was shown to have molecular effects on signaling pathways that were previously unknown and potentially protect the hepatocyte. These actions intersect TG metabolism, fat-induced autophagy and AQP9-mediated glycerol transport in hepatocytes.Graphical abstract

In this study, we aim to understand the molecular mechanism of the protective effect of metformin in NAFLD, focusing on lipotoxicity. Cell death was studied in HepG2 cells and primary rat hepatocytes exposed to palmitate and metformin. Metformin ameliorated palmitate-induced necrosis and apoptosis (decreased caspase-3/7 activity by 52% and 57% respectively) in HepG2 cells. Metformin also reduced palmitate-induced necrosis in primary rat hepatocytes (P

ConclusionsA deeper look into cellular mechanisms sheds a light on possible effects of physical activity in the prevention and treatment of NAFLD through modulation of function and structure of particular organelles, namely mitochondria. Additionally, despite of increasing evidence regarding the contribution of epigenetic mechanisms in the pathogenesis of different diseases, the role of microRNAs, DNA methylation, and histone modification in NAFLD pathogenesis still needs to be elucidated.

Abstract Dietary protein insufficiency has been linked to excessive triglyceride storage (TG) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in developing countries. Hepatic TG accumulation following a low-protein diet may be due to altered peroxisomal, mitochondrial and gut microbiota function. Hepatic peroxisomes and mitochondria normally mediate metabolism of nutrients to provide energy and substrates for lipogenesis. Peroxisome biogenesis and activities can be modulated by odd (OCFA) and short-chain (SCFA) fatty acids that are derived from gut bacteria e.g. propionate and butyrate. Also produced during amino ac...
