Abstract
Statement of the Problem: The risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), asthma, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) as well as common cancer is increased in subjects with metabolic syndrome (MetS). Interleukin-4 (IL-4), a marker of Th2 immune response, is often upregulated in these contexts and may potentiate aberrant arginine metabolism. Altered arginine/ nitric oxide metabolism and mitochondrial dysfunction represent putative common molecular pathways that may connect these diseases, possibly via oxidative-stress driven induction of the cellular hypoxic response. The importance of this pathway is not well studied in MetS associated vascular dysfunction. Aim: The purpose of this study is to investigate how altered arginine/methyl arginine balance, oxo-nitrative stress, hypoxic response and mitochondrial dysfunction may cause vascular dysfunction in metabolic syndrome. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: MetS mice (C57BL/6) were fed chow-diet (CN), high-fat-diet (HFA), or highfructose- diet (HFR) for six months. HFR and HFA diets induce MetS. Arginine/methyl arginine balance and oxo-nitrative stress were determined in aortic tissue by measuring the levels of ADMA, iNOS and 3-nitrotyrosine. Estimation of hypoxic response done by checking levels of HIF1α and resultant mitochondrial dysfunction by measuring levels of cytochrome c, TFAM, mitochondrial membrane potential and mitochondrial complex I and IV activity. Conclusion & Significance: IL-4 and ADMA were increased in HFA and HFR mice with MetS, compared to normal controls (CN). Vascular endothelial cells of both these groups also showed an increase in oxo-nitrative stress. IL-4 and ADMA led to potent induction of the cellular hypoxic response (HIF1α), despite normoxic conditions. The hypoxic response was associated with increased levels of the hypoxamir-210 that targets mitochondria, reduced mitochondrial membrane potential, complex I and complex IV activities, decreased TFAM and PGC1α levels, and leak of cytochrome-c to cytosol. In conclusion, IL-4 and ADMA are increased in MetS, leading to mitochondrial dysfunction through oxo-nitrative stress and hypoxic response. This has broad applicability to multiple diseases influenced by the hypoxic response, including cancer.
