Abstract Ochratoxin A (OTA) is reported to induce nephrotoxicity in animals and humans. Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) could induce porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome. To date, little is known whether virus infection aggravates mycotoxin-induced toxicity. This work aimed to study the effects of PCV2 infection on OTA-induced nephrotoxicity and its mechanism in vivo and vitro. The results in vivo showed that PCV2 infection aggravated OTA-induced poor growth performance, nephrotoxicity, p38 phosphorylation and autophagy as demonstrated by Atg5, LC3 II and p62 protein expressions in kidney of pigs. The results in vitro indicated that PCV2 infection significantly aggravated OTA-induced nephrotoxicity as demonstrated by cell viabilities, annexin V/PI binding and caspase 3 activities, and induced p38 phosphorylation and autophagy in PK15 cells. p38 inhibitor decreased Atg5 and LC3 protein expression induced by PCV2 infection and OTA combined treatment. Adding autophagy inhibitor 3-MA or CQ alleviated the aggravating effects of PCV2 infection on OTA-induced nephrotoxicity. Atg5-specific siRNA eliminated the aggravating effects of PCV2 infection on OTA-induced nephrotoxicity. Taken together, these data indicate that in vivo and in vitro PCV2 infection aggravated OTA-induced nephrotoxicity via p38-mediated autophagy.

ABSTRACTContribution of autophagy and regulation of related proteins to the degeneration of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) remain unknown. We report that upregulation of KRT8 (keratin 8) as well as its phosphorylation are accompanied with autophagy and attenuated with the inhibition of autophagy in RPE cells under oxidative stress. KRT8 appears to have a dual role in RPE pathophysiology. While increased expression of KRT8 following autophagy provides a...

T-2 toxin is a main type A trichothecene mycotoxin which is the most toxic trichothecence. T-2 toxin has posed various toxic effects on human and animals in vigorous cell proliferation tissues like lymphoid, hematopoietic and gastrointestinal tissues, while HT-2 toxin is the major metabolite which is deacetylated by T-2 toxin. In this study, we focused on the toxic effects of HT-2 on porcine oocyte maturation. We treated the porcine oocyte with HT-2 toxin in vitro, and we first found that HT-2 t...

Abstract Aims: Recent studies have revealed that autophagy is induced under various disease conditions; however, the role of autophagy in pathological states is controversial. NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) is a highly inducible cytoprotective gene that regulates reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. In this study, we examined whether NQO1 deficiency affects the autophagy process in response to cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity. Results: In vitro, NQO1 and autophagy-associated protei...

Electron beam irradiation (EBI) has high energy, no induced radioactivity, and strong degradation capacity toward mycotoxins, such as zearalenone (ZEN) and ochratoxin A (OTA). In this study, we determined EBI’s influence on the physical and chemical properties of corn contaminated with ZEN and OTA. Moreover, the toxicity of corn after EBI was assessed through a mouse experiment. Amylose content and starch crystallinity in corn decreased significantly (p < 0.05) at an irradiation dose higher than...

Cyclosporine A (CsA) extracted from the products of fungal fermentation is used to develop a chronic nephropathy model. However, it has numerous side effects. Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a mycotoxin that induces renal injury. We developed a chronic nephropathy model to lessen the side effects of CsA by administration of nontoxic dosage of OTA, and investigated the underlying mechanism. C57BL/10 wild-type mice, toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)−/− mice, and HK-2 cells were used in this study. The nontoxic do...
