Abstract Adiponectin (Ad) plays a crucial role in hepatic lipid metabolism. However, the regulating mechanism of hepatic lipid metabolism by Ad in dairy cows is unclear. Hepatocytes from a newborn female calf were cultured in vitro and treated with different concentrations of Ad and BML-275 (an AMPKα inhibitor). The results showed that Ad significantly increased the expression of two Ad receptors. Furthermore, the phosphorylation and activity of AMPKα, as well as the expression levels and transcriptional activity of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-α (PPARα) and its target genes involved in lipid oxidation, showed a corresponding trend of upregulation. However, the expression levels and transcriptional activity of sterol regulatory element binding protein 1c (SREBP-1c) and carbohydrate-responsive element-binding protein (ChREBP) decreased in a similar manner. When BML-275 was added, the p-AMPKα level as well as the expression and activity of PPARα and its target genes were significantly decreased. However, the expression levels of SREBP-1c, ChREBP and their target genes showed a trend of upregulation. Furthermore, the triglyceride (TG) content was significantly decreased in the Ad-treated groups. These results indicate that Ad activates the AMPK signaling pathway and mediates lipid metabolism in bovine hepatocytes cultured in vitro by promoting lipid oxidation, suppressing lipid synthesis and reducing hepatic lipid accumulation.

Abstract Primary hepatocytes are commonly used during in vitro studies, but care must be taken with isolation and culture of the cells to ensure their viability. In this study, hepatocytes were isolated from the liver (caudate process) of a newborn calf by the collagenase perfusion and digestion method. The trypan blue exclusion method was used to determine total cell number and the survival rate of hepatocytes, while hepatocyte function was assessed by measuring lactate dehydrogenase, albumin a...

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...

Postpartum dairy cows enter a period of negative energy balance (NEB) associated with low circulating IGF1, during which the uterus must undergo extensive repair following calving. This study investigated the effects of NEB on expression of IGF family members and related genes in the involuting uterus. Cows were allocated to two treatments using differential feeding and milking regimes to produce mild NEB or severe NEB (SNEB). Uterine endometrial samples collected 2 weeks post partum were analys...

Context The association of obesity with development of type 2 diabetes may be partly mediated by altered secretion of adipokines by adipose tissue. Greater adiposity down-regulates secretion of adiponectin, an adipokine with anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing properties. The strength and consistency of the relation between plasma adiponectin and risk of type 2 diabetes is unclear. Objective To systematically review prospective studies of the association of plasma adiponectin levels and ri...

AMP-dependent protein kinase (AMPK) is an evolutionarily conserved serine/threonine protein kinase central to the regulation of energy balance at both the cellular and whole-body levels. In its classical role as an intracellular metabolic stress-sensing kinase, AMPK switches on fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake in muscle, while switching off hepatic gluconeogenesis. AMPK also has a broader role in metabolism through the control of appetite. Regulation of AMPK activity at the whole-body lev...

Adiponectin, one of the insulin-sensitizing adipokines, has been shown to activate fatty acid oxidation in liver and skeletal muscle, thus maintaining insulin sensitivity. However, the precise roles of adiponectin in fatty acid synthesis are poorly understood. Here we show that adiponectin administration acutely suppresses expression of sterol regulatory element-binding protein (SREBP) 1c, the master regulator which controls and upregulates the enzymes involved in fatty acid synthesis, in the li...

Abstract Obesity induced insulin resistance is primarily regulated by the inhibitory phosphorylation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ at serine 273 (PPARγS273) which has been shown to be regulated by MEK and ERK. An upstream regulatory molecule of this pathway could be a therapeutic option. Here we analyzed the involvement of fetuin-A (FetA), a key hepato-adipokine implicated in insulin resistance, as an upstream regulator molecule for the regulation of PPARγ inhibitory phosphoryl...
