Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation with the pyridoindole antioxidant stobadine on kidney status and function in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Diabetic male Wistar rats were fed a standard diet for 32 weeks or a diet supplemented with stobadine (0.05\% w/w). The diabetic state was characterized by significantly elevated plasma levels of glucose, HbA1c and urea, severe reduction of total body weight and relatively enlarged kidneys. Elevated levels of conjugated dienes were recorded in the diabetic kidney confirming the presence of oxidative stress in diabetic animals. All diabetic rats showed marked proteinuria and albuminuria along with elevated excretion of the enzyme N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase. Long-term treatment of diabetic animals with stobadine significantly reduced total proteinuria, albuminuria and enzymuria, yet left the overall physical and glycemic status unaffected. It reduced oxidative damage of kidney tissue as shown by decreased conjugated diene level, and decreased matrix collagen cross-linking, as indicated by decreased breaking time values of rat tail tendons. These beneficial effects of stobadine, supported also by histological findings, may be brought about by virtue of the combination of its antioxidant potential with other effects, e.g., the postulated cholesterol-lowering ability or its ability to alter vascular reactivity and reduce the vascular tone.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
