Background: Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) is a potent tumor suppressor gene that also plays a vital role in regulating fatty acid metabolism. Here we attempted to elucidate the role of PTEN in the regulation of fatty acid oxidation and the assembly and secretion of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) in dairy cow liver. Methods: We transfected primary culture calf hepatocytes with adenovirus-mediated PTEN overexpression vector (AD-GFP-PTEN).PTEN-overexpressing hepatocytes and control hepatocytes were obtained. Results: Compared with controls, overexpression of PTEN significantly up-regulated CPT I, ACSL, HADH expression (ppl0.01), ApoE (ppppagt;0.05). To demonstrate that fatty acid metabolism was changed, we measured the concentrations of TG and VLDL. The concentration of TG was significantly decreased in hepatocytes (pPConclusions: Overexpressing PTEN enhanced fatty acid oxidation and assembly and secretion of VLDL. PTEN gene therapy could have therapeutic potential for fatty liver diseases of dairy cattle.

Dairy cows experience an increased demand for glucose to support milk production. However, negative energy balance is a common condition in peripartum cows. In response, fat mobilization provides non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs) for oxidation in the liver to generate ATP. To investigate the effects of NEFAs on gluconeogenesis, the expression and enzyme activity of pyruvate carboxylase (PC) and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPCK) in cultured bovine hepatocytes were evaluated by quantitative...

Abstract Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1a (CPT1a) in liver mitochondrial outer membrane (MOM) catalyzes the primary regulated step in overall mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation. It has been suggested that the fundamental unit of CPT1a exists as a trimer, which under native conditions could form a dimer of the trimers creating a hexamer channel for acylcarnitine translocation. To examine the state of CPT1a in the MOM, we employed here a combined approach of sizing by mass and isolation using an ...

Hepatitis B virus X protein (HBx) plays important roles in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MicroRNAs (miRNAs) contribute to cancer development by acting as oncogenes or tumor suppressors. Previously, we reported that HBx was able to promote the migration of hepatoma HepG2 cells. However, the regulation of miRNAs in the development of HBV-related HCC is poorly understood. In the present study, we reported that miR-29a was a novel regulator of migration of hepatoma cells mediate...

Background Mammary carcinomas have been associated with a high-fat diet, and the rate of breast cancer in overweight post-menopausal women is up to 50% higher than in their normal-weight counterparts. Epidemiological studies suggest that prolactin (PRL) plays a role in the progression of breast cancer. The current study examined breast cancer as a metabolic disease in the context of altered fatty acid catabolism by examining the effect of PRL on carnitine palmitoyl transferase 1 (CPT1), an enzym...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) components in hepatic blood (HB) from 5 nonlactating nonpregnant cows fasted from days 0 to 3 and subsequently refed to day 10 and, in addition, to assess those of other lipoproteins. Increased phospholipid concentrations in each lipoprotein after the start of fasting suggested their availability for the surface lipids of lipoproteins. Although the VLDL-triglyceride (TG) concentration in HB from all cows inc...

Apolipoprotein (apo) E is a 34.2 kDa glycoprotein synthesized by the liver and to a lesser extent by peripheral tissues (1). It is associated in plasma with triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRL) and HDL particles (2). ApoE plays a central role in mediating hepatic recognition and uptake of TRL and their remnants by acting as a ligand for lipoprotein binding to the LDL receptor, LDL receptor-related protein, and glycosaminoglycans (3). ApoE may also activate enzymes involved in lipoprotein metabol...

Microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP) is required for the assembly and secretion of apolipopro- tein (apo) B-containing lipoproteins. Previously, we demon- strated that the N-terminal 1,000 residues of apoB (apoB:1000) are necessary for the initiation of apoB-con- taining lipoprotein assembly in rat hepatoma McA-RH7777 cells and that these particles are phospholipid (PL) rich. To determine if the PL transfer activity of MTP is suffi cient for the assembly and secretion of primordial apo...

Insulin signaling in the liver leads to accumulation of phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate (PIP3). Deletion of the phosphatase Pten (phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted on chromosome 10) reduces PIP3 levels and leads to fatty liver development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the mechanisms underlying lipogenesis that result from PIP3 accumulation using liver Pten-deletion mice. To explore the role of AKT2, the major liver AKT isoform in steatosis induced by deletion of...

Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), an NAD-dependent protein deacetylase, plays a central role in the control of lipid metabolism in nonruminants. However, the role of SIRT1 in hepatic lipid metabolism in dairy cows with fatty liver is not well known. Thus, we used isolated primary bovine hepatocytes to determine the role of SIRT1 in protecting cells against oleic acid (OA)-induced steatosis. Recombinant adenoviruses to overexpress (AD-GFP-SIRT1-E) or knockdown (AD-GFP-SIRT1-N) SIRT1 were used for transduction o...
Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) is a well-known tumor suppressor in nonruminants and regulates various cellular processes including growth through dephosphorylation of phosphoinositide substrates. Although studies with bovine mammary tissue suggested a role for PTEN during lactation, its potential role in lipid metabolism remains unknown. Objectives of the present study were to determine PTEN abundance in goat mammary tissue at 2 stages of lactation (n = 6 Xinong Saanen dairy goats per sta...

: Dairy cows with fatty liver or ketosis display decreased insulin sensitivity and defects in the insulin receptor substrate (IRS)/PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) is a well-known tumor suppressor and also a negative regulator of insulin signaling and peripheral insulin sensitivity. We investigated the hypothesis that PTEN may affect the insulin pathway-mediated hepatic glucose and lipid metabolism in dairy cows. Adenovirus vectors that over-express and silence P...

Dyslipidemia has been widely proven to contribute to cardiovascular diseases and other metabolic disorders, especially in insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. The overproduction of VLDL is a significant characteristic of dyslipidemia, indicating the dysfunction of hepatic lipid metabolism, from triglyceride synthesis to transport. The fructose-fed Syrian golden hamster is an established animal model for the study of VLDL assembly with insulin resistance, however, it remains unknown how VLDL p...

In this study, we investigated the molecular regulatory mechanisms of milk protein production in dairy cows by studying the miRNAomes of five key metabolic tissues involved in protein synthesis and metabolism from dairy cows fed high- and low-quality diets. In total, 340, 338, 337, 330, and 328 miRNAs were expressed in the rumen, duodenum, jejunum, liver, and mammary gland tissues, respectively. Some miRNAs were highly correlated with feed and nitrogen efficiency, with target genes involved in t...

Nutrigenomics in dairy cows is a relatively new area of research. It is defined as the study of the genomewide influences of nutrition altering the expression of genes. Dietary compounds affect gene expression directly or indirectly via interactions with transcription factors. Among those, the most relevant for nutrigenomics are ligand-dependent nuclear receptors, especially peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR) and liver X receptor. Among other transcription factors, a prominent nu...

Background: Fatty liver is a major metabolic disorder that occurs during early lactation in high-producing dairy cows. Sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1c (SREBP-1c) is an important transcription factor that regulates lipid synthesis by regulating the expression of lipid metabolism genes. Methods: In this study, we reduced the expression of SREBP-1c by adenovirus-mediated SREBP-1c with a low expression vector (AD-GFP-SREBP-1c) to study the effects of SREBP-1c on lipid deposits in bovine...
