Abstract
ABSTRACT null null Bovine mammary epithelial cells undergo an increase in metabolic rate, mitochondrial dysfunction, and oxidative stress after calving. Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (NFE2L2), a master regulator of cellular redox homeostasis, plays crucial roles in the regulation of mitochondrial function. The objective of this study was to investigate the role of NFE2L2 on mitochondrial function in bovine mammary epithelial cells under hyperlipidemic conditions. Three experiments were conducted as follows: (1) the immortalized bovine mammary epithelial cell line MAC-T was treated with various concentrations of free fatty acids (FFA; 0, 0.6, 1.2, or 2.4 mM) for 24 h to induce stress; (2) MAC-T cells were transfected with small interfering RNA targeting NFE2L2 (si-NFE2L2) and scrambled nontarget negative control (si-Control) for 48 h; and (3) MAC-T cells were pretreated with 10 μM sulforaphane (SFN), an activator of NFE2L2, for 24 h followed by treatment with 1.2 mM FFA for an additional 24 h. Results indicated that exogenous FFA challenge induced linear and quadratic increases in concentrations of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS). Compared with 0 mM FFA, mitochondrial membrane potential, mRNA abundance of oxidative phosphorylation complexes (CO I-V), protein abundance of nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1 α (PGC-1α), mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM), and NFE2L2 along with the contents of ATP, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), and total mitochondria were greater in the MAC-T challenged with 0.6 mM FFA group, but lower in the 1.2 and 2.4 mM FFA cultures. Knockdown of NFE2L2 via small interfering RNA led to greater mitochondrial ROS content and lower mitochondrial membrane potential along with contents of ATP, mtDNA, and total mitochondria. The SFN pretreatment upregulated protein abundance of NFE2L2 and attenuated the downregulation of NFE2L2 induced by FFA. Pretreatment with SFN attenuated the downregulation induced by FFA of PGC-1α, NRF1, and TFAM protein abundance along with contents of mtDNA and total mitochondria. Furthermore, SFN pretreatment attenuated the upregulation of mitochondrial ROS content, the downregulation of mitochondrial membrane potential, and the decreases in ATP, mtDNA, and mitochondrial content induced by FFA. Overall, data indicated that FFA inhibit NFE2L2, resulting in mitochondrial dysfunction and ROS production in bovine mammary epithelial cells. Thus, NFE2L2 may be a promising therapeutic target against metabolic challenge-driven mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress in bovine mammary epithelial cells.

ABSTRACT Ketosis is a common metabolic disorder in high-producing dairy cows during the peripartal period. Negative energy balance leads to increased circulating levels of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) and β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), consequently increasing the risk of ketosis. It is well-known that NEFA and BHB can induce lipotoxicity and oxidative stress in bovine tissues/organs including the liver and adipose tissue. Although the mammary gland is one important site for NEFA and BHB metabolism...

BACKGROUND Bovine mammary epithelial cells after calving undergo serious metabolic challenges and oxidative stress both of which could compromise autophagy. Transcription factor EB (TFEB)-mediated autophagy is an important cytoprotective mechanism against oxidative stress. However, effects of TFEB-mediated autophagy on the oxidative stress of bovine mammary epithelial cells remain unknown. Therefore, the main aim of the study was to investigate the role of TFEB-mediated autophagy in bovine mamma...

ABSTRACT Ketosis is a serious metabolic disorder characterized by systemic and hepatic oxidative stress, inflammation, and apoptosis, as well as reduced milk yield. Because of the paucity of data on mammary responses during ketosis, the aim of this study was to evaluate alterations in oxidative stress, NF-κB signaling, NLRP3 inflammasome, and caspase apoptotic pathways in mammary gland of dairy cows with ketosis. Blood, mammary gland tissue, and milk samples were collected from healthy cows [Con...

Abstract Search for a definitive cure for neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson's disease (PD) has met with little success. Mitochondrial dysfunction and elevated oxidative stress precede characteristic loss of dopamine-producing neurons from the midbrain in PD. The majority of PD cases are classified as sporadic (sPD) with an unknown etiology, whereas mutations in a handful of genes cause monogenic form called familial (fPD). Both sPD and fPD is characterized by proteinopathy and mitochond...

: Oxygen (O2) is essential for most metazoan life due to its central role in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS), which generates >90% of the cellular adenosine triphosphate. O2 fluctuations are an ultimate mitochondrial stressor resulting in mitochondrial damage, energy deficiency, and cell death. This work provides an overview of the known and putative mechanisms involved in mitochondrial tolerance to fluctuating O2 conditions in hypoxia-tolerant organisms including aquatic and te...

: The increasing lactational performance of dairy cows over the last few decades is closely related to higher nutritional requirements. The decrease in dry matter intake during the peripartal period results in a considerable mobilisation of body tissues (mainly fat reserves and muscle mass) to compensate for the prevailing lack of energy and nutrients. Despite the activation of adaptive mechanisms to mobilise nutrients from body tissues for maintenance and milk production, the increased metaboli...

ABSTRACT High blood concentrations of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) during ketosis represent a source of fatty acids for milk fat synthesis and explain the increase in milk fat content in ketotic cows. Cell death-inducing DFFA-like effector a (CIDEA) is a lipid droplet coat protein with important roles in the regulation of milk fat synthesis and secretion in mice. Whether ketosis alters the expression of CIDEA in mammary gland tissue and the extent to which it may contribute to regulation of ...

Abstract Mitochondria play essential roles in cellular bioenergetics, biosynthesis, and apoptosis. During the process of respiration and oxidative phosphorylation, mitochondria utilize oxygen to generate ATP, and at the same time, there is an inevitable generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). As excess ROS create oxidative stress and damage cells, the proper function of the antioxidant defense system is critical for eukaryotic cell survival under aerobic conditions. Nuclear factor, erythroi...

ABSTRACT The inevitable deficiency in nutrients and energy at the onset of lactation requires an optimal adaptation of the hepatic metabolism to overcome metabolic stress. Fatty liver is one of the main health disorders after parturition. Therefore, to investigate changes in hepatic lipid metabolic status and mitochondria in dairy cows with mild fatty liver, liver and blood samples were collected from healthy cows (n = 15) and cows with mild fatty liver (n = 15). To determine the effects of palm...

: Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe), a monocotyledonous herb, is widely used as an herbal medicine owing to the phytoconstituents it possesses. In the current study, the quantity of [6]-gingerol, the major phenolic ketone, in the fresh ginger and dried ginger rhizome was found to be 6.11 µg/mg and 0.407 µg/mg. Furthermore, [6]-gingerol was assessed for its antiapoptotic effects in human gastric adenocarcinoma (AGS) cells evidenced by acridine orange/ethidium bromide staining technique and Anne...
