Interleukin-1beta may mediate insulin resistance in liver-derived cells in response to adipocyte inflammation


Nov, O; Kohl, A; Lewis, E C; Bashan, N; Dvir, I; Ben-Shlomo, S; Fishman, S; Wueest, S; Konrad, D; Rudich, A (2010). Interleukin-1beta may mediate insulin resistance in liver-derived cells in response to adipocyte inflammation. Endocrinology, 151(9):4247-4256.

Abstract

Central obesity is frequently associated with adipose tissue inflammation and hepatic insulin resistance. To identify potential individual mediators in this process, we used in vitro systems and assessed if insulin resistance in liver cells could be induced by secreted products from adipocytes preexposed to an inflammatory stimulus. Conditioned medium from 3T3-L1 adipocytes pretreated without (CM) or with TNFalpha (CM-TNFalpha) was used to treat Fao hepatoma cells. ELISAs were used to assess the concentration of several inflammatory mediators in CM-TNFalpha. CM-TNFalpha-treated Fao cells exhibited about 45% diminution in insulin-stimulated phosphorylation of insulin receptor, insulin receptor substrate proteins, protein kinase B, and glycogen synthase kinase-3 as compared with CM-treated cells, without changes in the total abundance of these protein. Insulin increased glycogenesis by 2-fold in CM-treated Fao cells but not in cells exposed to CM-TNFalpha. Expression of IL-1beta mRNA was elevated 3-fold in TNFalpha-treated adipocytes, and CM-TNFalpha had 10-fold higher concentrations of IL-1beta but not TNFalpha or IL-1alpha. IL-1beta directly induced insulin resistance in Fao, HepG2, and in primary rat hepatocytes. Moreover, when TNFalpha-induced secretion/production of IL-1beta from adipocytes was inhibited by the IL-1 converting enzyme (ICE-1) inhibitor II (Ac-YVAD-CMK), insulin resistance was prevented. Furthermore, liver-derived cells treated with IL-1 receptor antagonist were protected against insulin resistance induced by CM-TNFalpha. Finally, IL-1beta secretion from human omental fat explants correlated with body mass index (R(2) = 0.639, P < 0.01), and the resulting CM induced insulin resistance in HepG2 cells, inhibitable by IL-1 receptor antagonist. Our results suggest that adipocyte-derived IL-1beta may constitute a mediator in the perturbed cross talk between adipocytes and liver cells in response to adipose tissue inflammation.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
