AMP-activated protein kinase: A remarkable contributor to preserve a healthy heart against ROS injury

04 Mar 2021-Free Radical Biology and Medicine (Pergamon)-Vol. 166, pp 238-254
Abstract: Heart failure is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. Left ventricle remodeling, fibrosis, and ischemia/reperfusion injury all contribute to the deterioration of cardiac function and predispose to the onset of heart failure. Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is the universally recognized energy sensor which responds to low ATP levels and restores cellular metabolism. AMPK activation controls numerous cellular processes and, in the heart, it plays a pivotal role in preventing onset and progression of disease. Excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, known as oxidative stress, can activate AMPK, conferring an additional role of AMPK as a redox-sensor. In this review, we discuss recent insights into the crosstalk between ROS and AMPK. We describe the molecular mechanisms by which ROS activate AMPK and how AMPK signaling can further prevent heart failure progression. Ultimately, we review the potential therapeutic approaches to target AMPK for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and prevention of heart failure.

Abstract: Specialized O2-sensing cells exhibit a particularly low threshold to regulation by O2 supply and function to maintain arterial pO2 within physiological limits. For example, hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction optimizes ventilation-perfusion matching in the lung, whereas carotid body excitation elicits corrective cardio-respiratory reflexes. It is generally accepted that relatively mild hypoxia inhibits mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation in O2-sensing cells, thereby mediating, in part, cell activation. However, the mechanism by which this process couples to Ca2+ signaling mechanisms remains elusive, and investigation of previous hypotheses has generated contrary data and failed to unite the field. We propose that a rise in the cellular AMP/ATP ratio activates AMP-activated protein kinase and thereby evokes Ca2+ signals in O2-sensing cells. Co-immunoprecipitation identified three possible AMP-activated protein kinase subunit isoform combinations in pulmonary arterial myocytes, with α1β2γ1 predominant. Furthermore, their tissue-specific distribution suggested that the AMP-activated protein kinase-α1 catalytic isoform may contribute, via amplification of the metabolic signal, to the pulmonary selectivity required for hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction. Immunocytochemistry showed AMP-activated protein kinase-α1 to be located throughout the cytoplasm of pulmonary arterial myocytes. In contrast, it was targeted to the plasma membrane in carotid body glomus cells. Consistent with these observations and the effects of hypoxia, stimulation of AMP-activated protein kinase by phenformin or 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-riboside elicited discrete Ca2+ signaling mechanisms in each cell type, namely cyclic ADP-ribose-dependent Ca2+ mobilization from the sarcoplasmic reticulum via ryanodine receptors in pulmonary arterial myocytes and transmembrane Ca2+ influx into carotid body glomus cells. Thus, metabolic sensing by AMP-activated protein kinase may mediate chemotransduction by hypoxia.

Abstract: Objective— Hyperglycemia is the main determinant of long-term diabetic complications, mainly through induction of oxidative stress. NAD(P)H oxidase is a major source of glucose-induced oxidative stress. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that rosiglitazone (RSG) is able to quench oxidative stress initiated by high glucose through prevention of NAD(P)H oxidase activation. Methods and Results— Intracellular ROS were measured using the fluoroprobe TEMPO-9-AC in HUVECs exposed to control (5 mmol/L) and moderately high (10 mmol/L) glucose concentrations. NAD(P)H oxidase and AMPK activities were determined by Western blot. We found that 10 mmol/L glucose increased significantly ROS production in comparison with 5 mmol/L glucose, and that this effect was completely abolished by RSG. Interestingly, inhibition of AMPK, but not PPARγ, prevented this effect of RSG. AMPK phosphorylation by RSG was necessary for its ability to hamper NAD(P)H oxidase activation, which was indispensable for glucose-induced oxidativ...

Abstract: Cadmium (Cd) is a widely distributed environmental pollutant with immunotoxicity and endocrine toxicity. M1/M2 macrophages participate in the immune response and exert an essential influence on fibrosis. Nevertheless, whether Cd can induce porcineadrenal fibrosis by affecting the polarization of M1/M2 macrophages and its potential regulatory mechanism have not been explored. We added 20 mg/kg CdCl2 to the pig diet for 40 days to investigate the fibrogenic effect of subacute Cd exposure on the adrenal gland. The results indicated that the ACTH and CORT in serum were decreased by 15.26 % and 21.99 %, respectively. The contents of adrenal mineral elements Cd, Cr, Mn were increased up to 34, 1.93, 1.42 folds and Co, Zn, Sn were reduced by 21.57 %, 20.52 %, 15.75 %. Concurrently, the pro-oxidative indicators (LPO, MDA and H2O2) were increased by 1.85, 2.20, 2.77 folds and 3.60, 11.15, 4.11 folds upregulated mRNA levels of TLR4, NF-κB, NLRP3 were observed. Subsequently, the expression of M1 macrophages polarization markers (IL-6, iNOS, TNF-α, CCL2 and CXCL9) were raised by 2.03, 2.30, 2.35, 1.58, 1.56 folds, while M2 macrophages (IL-4, CCL24, Arg1, IL-10, MRC1) showed a 62.34 %, 31.88 %, 50.26 %, 74.00 %, 69.34 % downregulation. The expression levels of AMPK subunits and genes related to glycolysis, oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and fatty acid oxidation (FAO) were also markedly increased. Additionally, the expression level of TGF-β1, Smad2/3 and downstream pro-fibrotic markers was obviously upregulated. Taken together, we conclude that Cd activates the oxidative stress-mediated TLR4/NF-κB/NLRP3 inflammatory signal transduction, leading to porcine adrenal fibrosis by promoting macrophage polarization toward M1.

Abstract: Heart failure (HF) is the advanced heart disease with high morbidity and mortality. Compound DanShen Dripping Pill (CDDP) is a widely used Traditional Chinese Medicine for cardiovascular disease treatment. Herein, we investigated if CDDP can protect mice against doxorubicin (DOX) or isoprenaline (ISO)-induced HF. After 3 days feeding of normal chow containing CDDP, mice were started DOX or ISO treatment for 4 weeks or 18 days. At the end of treatment, mice were conducted electrocardiogram and echocardiographic test. Blood and heart samples were determined biochemical parameters, myocardial structure and expression of the related molecules. CDDP normalized DOX/ISO-induced heart weight changes, HF parameters and fibrogenesis. The DOX/ISO-impaired left ventricular ejection fraction and fractional shortening were restored by CDDP. Mechanistically, CDDP blocked DOX/ISO-inhibited expression of antioxidant enzymes and DOX/ISO-induced expression of pro-fibrotic molecules, inflammation and cell apoptosis. Additional DOX/ISO-impaired targets in cardiac function but protected by CDDP were identified by RNAseq, qRT-PCR and Western blot. In addition, CDDP protected cardiomyocytes against oxygen-glucose deprivation-induced injuries. Taken together, our study shows that CDDP can protect against myocardial injuries in different models, suggesting its potential application for HF treatment.

Abstract: Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease. Because high plasma concentrations of cholesterol, in particular those of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, are one of the principal risk factors for atherosclerosis,1 the process of atherogenesis has been considered by many to consist largely of the accumulation of lipids within the artery wall; however, it is much more than that. Despite changes in lifestyle and the use of new pharmacologic approaches to lower plasma cholesterol concentrations,2,3 cardiovascular disease continues to be the principal cause of death in the United States, Europe, and much of Asia.4,5 In fact, the lesions of atherosclerosis represent . . .

Abstract: Lipid peroxidation often occurs in response to oxidative stress, and a great diversity of aldehydes are formed when lipid hydroperoxides break down in biological systems. Some of these aldehydes are highly reactive and may be considered as second toxic messengers which disseminate and augment initial free radical events. The aldehydes most intensively studied so far are 4-hydroxynonenal, 4-hydroxyhexenal, and malonaldehyde. The purpose of this review is to provide a comprehensive summary on the chemical properties of these aldehydes, the mechanisms of their formation and their occurrence in biological systems and methods for their determination. We will also review the reactions of 4-hydroxyalkenals and malonaldehyde with biomolecules (amino acids, proteins, nucleic acid bases), their metabolism in isolated cells and excretion in whole animals, as well as the many types of biological activities described so far, including cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, chemotactic activity, and effects on cell proliferation and gene expression. Structurally related compounds, such as acrolein, crotonaldehyde, and other 2-alkenals are also briefly discussed, since they have some properties in common with 4-hydroxyalkenals.

Address reprint requests to Dr. Holman at the Diabetes Trials Unit, Ox- ford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolism, Churchill Hospital, Head- ington, Oxford OX3 7LJ, United Kingdom, or at Background During the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS), patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who received intensive glucose therapy had a lower risk of microvascular complications than did those receiving conventional dietary therapy. We conducted post-trial monitoring to determine whether this improved glucose con- trol persisted and whether such therapy had a long-term effect on macrovascular outcomes. Methods Of 5102 patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes, 4209 were randomly assigned to receive either conventional therapy (dietary restriction) or intensive therapy (either sulfonylurea or insulin or, in overweight patients, metformin) for glucose control. In post-trial monitoring, 3277 patients were asked to attend annual UKPDS clinics for 5 years, but no attempts were made to maintain their previously assigned thera- pies. Annual questionnaires were used to follow patients who were unable to attend the clinics, and all patients in years 6 to 10 were assessed through questionnaires. We examined seven prespecified aggregate clinical outcomes from the UKPDS on an intention-to-treat basis, according to previous randomization categories. Results Between-group differences in glycated hemoglobin levels were lost after the first year. In the sulfonylurea-insulin group, relative reductions in risk persisted at 10 years for any diabetes-related end point (9%, P = 0.04) and microvascular disease (24%, P = 0.001), and risk reductions for myocardial infarction (15%, P = 0.01) and death from any cause (13%, P = 0.007) emerged over time, as more events occurred. In the metformin group, significant risk reductions persisted for any diabetes-relat- ed end point (21%, P = 0.01), myocardial infarction (33%, P = 0.005), and death from any cause (27%, P = 0.002). Conclusions Despite an early loss of glycemic differences, a continued reduction in microvascu- lar risk and emergent risk reductions for myocardial infarction and death from any cause were observed during 10 years of post-trial follow-up. A continued benefit after metformin therapy was evident among overweight patients. (UKPDS 80; Current Controlled Trials number, ISRCTN75451837.)
