: The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in hepatic oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) complexes (COs) in patients and cows with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and to investigate the mechanism that links mitochondrial dysfunction and hepatic insulin resistance induced by non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs). Patients and cows with NASH displayed high blood NEFAs, TNF-α and IL-6 concentrations, mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance. The protein levels of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivator-1α (PGC-1α), mitofusin-2 (Mfn-2) and OXPHOS complexes (human: COI and COIII; cow: COI-IV) were significantly decreased in patients and cows with NASH. NEFA treatment significantly impaired mitochondrial function and, increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, and excessive ROS overactivated the JNK and p38MAPK pathways and induced insulin resistance in cow hepatocytes. PGC-1α and Mfn-2 overexpression significantly decreased the NEFA-induced ROS production and TNF-α and IL-6 mRNA expressions, reversed the inhibitory effect of NEFAs on mitochondrial function and attenuated the overactivation of the ROS-JNK/p38MAPK pathway, alleviated insulin resistance induced by NEFAs in cow hepatocytes and HepG2 cells. These findings indicate that NEFAs induce mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance mediated by the ROS-JNK/p38MAPK pathway. PGC-1α or Mfn-2 overexpression reversed the lipotoxicity of NEFAs on mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance. Our study clarified the mechanism that links hepatic mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance in NASH.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is excessive fat build-up in the liver without alcohol consumption and includes hepatic inflammation and damage. Excessive influx of fatty acids to liver from circulation is thought to be a pathogenic cause for the development of NAFLD. Thus, inhibition of fatty acid intake into hepatocyte would be a maneuver for protection from high fat diet (HFD)-induced NAFLD. This study was initiated to determine whether sodium fluorocitrate (SFC) as a fatty acid upt...

The liver, the largest organ with multiple synthesis and secretion functions in mammals, consists of hepatocytes and Kupffer, stem, endothelial, stellate and other parenchymal cells. Because of early and extensive contact with the external environment, hepatic ischaemia reperfusion (IR) may result in mitochondrial dysfunction, autophagy and apoptosis of cells and tissues under various pathological conditions. Because the liver requires a high oxygen supply to maintain normal detoxification and s...

Ketotic dairy cows exhibit a state of negative energy balance (NEB) characterized by elevated circulating levels of β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and fatty acids. Impaired hepatic insulin signaling in dairy cows occurs frequently during the transition into lactation, but its role on liver function during this period is not well known. In nonruminants, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is a causal factor contributing to impaired insulin signaling in the liver. Thus, the aim of this study was to investi...

Fatty liver is a common metabolic disorder afflicting dairy cows during the periparturient period and is closely associated with endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. The onset of ER stress in humans and mice alters hepatic lipid metabolism, but it is unknown if such event contributes to fatty liver in dairy cows soon after parturition. ORAI1 is a key component of the store-operated Ca2+ entry mechanism regulating cellular Ca2+ balance. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of ORAI1...

Abstract null null Negative energy balance (NEB) is associated with metabolic disorders in early lactation dairy cows. Therefore, our objective was to characterize the liver proteome in cows experiencing either NEB or positive energy balance (PEB). Forty-two multiparous Holstein dairy cows were milked either 2 or 3 times daily for the first 30 days in milk (DIM) to alter EB, and were classified retrospectively as NEB (n = 18) or PEB (n = 22). Liver biopsies were collected from 10 cows (n = 5 fro...
