Exercise training increases skeletal muscle mitochondrial volume density by enlargement of existing mitochondria and not de novo biogenesis
Anne-Kristine Meinild Lundby       Acta physiol 2017

Aims

1) determine whether exercise induced increases in muscle mitochondrial volume density (MitoVD) is related to enlargement of existing mitochondria or de novo biogenesis, 2) establish if measures of mitochondrial-specific enzymatic activities are valid biomarkers for exercise induced increases in MitoVD.
Method

Skeletal muscle samples were collected from twenty-one healthy males prior to and following 6 weeks of endurance training. Transmission electron microscopy was used for estimation of mitochondrial densities and profiles. Biochemical assays, western blotting and high resolution respirometry were applied to detect changes in specific mitochondrial functions.
Result

MitoVD increased with 55 ± 9% (P

< 0.001), whereas the number of mitochondrial profiles per area of skeletal muscle remained unchanged following training

. Citrate synthase activity (CS) increased (44 ± 12%, P < 0.001) however, there were no functional changes in oxidative phosphorylation capacity (OXPHOS, CI+IIP) or cytochrome c oxidase (COX) activity. Correlations were found between MitoVD and CS (P=0.01; r=0.58), OXPHOS, CI+CIIP (P=0.01; R=0.58) and COX (P=0.02; R=0.52) before training, after training a correlation was found between MitoVD and CS activity only (P=0.04; R=0.49). Intrinsic respiratory capacities decreased (P < 0.05) with training when respiration was normalized to MitoVD. This was not the case when normalized to CS activity although the percentage change was comparable.
Conclusions

MitoVD was increased by inducing mitochondrial enlargement rather than de novo biogenesis. CS activity may be appropriate to track training induced changes in MitoVD.

Mitochondrial derived peptides as novel regulators of metabolism
Su-Jeong Kim             J Physiol 2017
         
Mitochondrial derived peptides represent a new class of circulating signalling molecules. Humanin, the first member of this class, has been shown to have several metabolic effects such as reducing weight gain and visceral fat and increasing glucose stimulated insulin release. The discovery of several other new members such as MOTS-c and SHLP1-6, have further added to this group. These new peptides have also been found to affect metabolism with MOTS-c potently decreasing weight gain in mice on a high fat diet. In this review, we will cover the basic biology of this class of peptides and discuss the relevance to organismal metabolism.

Increased salt consumption induces body water conservation and decreases fluid intake
Natalia Rakova       J Clin Invest April 17, 2017 - More info

The idea that increasing salt intake increases drinking and urine volume is widely accepted. We tested the hypothesis that an increase in salt intake of 6 g/d would change fluid balance in men living under ultra-long-term controlled conditions.

METHODS. Over the course of 2 separate space flight simulation studies of 105 and 205 days’ duration, we exposed 10 healthy men to 3 salt intake levels (12, 9, or 6 g/d). All other nutrients were maintained constant. We studied the effect of salt-driven changes in mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid urinary excretion on day-to-day osmolyte and water balance.

RESULTS. A 6-g/d increase in salt intake increased urine osmolyte excretion, but reduced free-water clearance, indicating endogenous free water accrual by urine concentration. The resulting endogenous water surplus reduced fluid intake at the 12-g/d salt intake level. Across all 3 levels of salt intake, half-weekly and weekly rhythmical mineralocorticoid release promoted free water reabsorption via the renal concentration mechanism. Mineralocorticoid-coupled increases in free water reabsorption were counterbalanced by rhythmical glucocorticoid release, with excretion of endogenous osmolyte and water surplus by relative urine dilution. A 6-g/d increase in salt intake decreased the level of rhythmical mineralocorticoid release and elevated rhythmical glucocorticoid release. The projected effect of salt-driven hormone rhythm modulation corresponded well with the measured decrease in water intake and an increase in urine volume with surplus osmolyte excretion.

CONCLUSION. Humans regulate osmolyte and water balance by rhythmical mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid release, endogenous accrual of surplus body water, and precise surplus excretion.

Short-term effects of troxerutin (vitamin P4) on muscle fatigue and gene expression of Bcl-2 and Bax in the hepatic tissue of rats

Mohammad Zamanian         Revue canadienne de physiologie et pharmacologie 2017

Dans les présents travaux, nous avons étudié l’effet de la troxérutine (TRX) sur la fatigue musculaire et l’expression des gènes Bcl-2 et Bax dans le tissu hépatique de rat. Nous avons réparti aléatoirement 40 rats Wistar mâles dans les quatre groupes suivants : témoin et administration de TRX à 75 (TRX75), 150 (TRX150) et 300 mg/kg par jour (TRX300). Les groupes TRX et placebo ont reçu pendant 7 jours de la TRX et de l’eau, respectivement. Le 7e jour, tous les animaux ont été euthanasiés immédiatement après un test de nage menant à l’épuisement, et nous avons mesuré plusieurs paramètres biochimiques liés à la fatigue et à l’expression des gènes Bcl-2 et Bax dans le tissu hépatique. Nos résultats ont montré que dans le groupe TRX300, le temps de nage écoulé avant l’épuisement était 1,2 fois plus élevé que dans le groupe témoin (résultats statistiquement significatifs : P < 0,001).

Dans le groupe TRX300, l’activité de l’ALT diminuait et l’activité hépatique de la SOD augmentait de façons nettement plus marquées que dans le groupe témoin (P < 0,05 et P < 0,01, respectivement). De plus, la TRX entraînait une diminution de l’expression de l’ARNm du gène Bax et une augmentation du rapport Bcl-2/Bax nettement plus marquées que dans le groupe témoin (P < 0,001 dans les deux cas).

D’après nos données, la TRX exerce une action anti-apoptotique et hépatoprotectrice à la suite d’un exercice de nage menant à l’épuisement.

Greater Stimulation of Postexercise Muscle Protein Synthesis after Consumption of Whole Eggs versus Egg Whites in Healthy Young Men
Stephan van Vliet

The majority of protein consumed in the diet is obtained from whole food sources that contain a mixture of macro- and micronutrients. Whereas the majority of research investigated the effect of isolated protein sources on protein metabolism, our aim was to assess the muscle anabolic potential of consuming a complete protein within its naturally occurring, nutrient dense food matrix during recovery from resistance exercise in young men.

In crossover trials, 10 healthy resistance-trained men (21±1 y; 88±3 kg; bodyfat: 16±1%) received primed continuous L-[ring-2H5]phenylalanine and L-[1-13C]leucine infusions. Repeated blood and muscle biopsies were collected before and after a single bout of resistance exercise (4 sets of 10 repetitions at 80% of 10-RM for both leg press and leg extensions). Immediately after resistance exercise, participants ingested intrinsically L-[5,5,5-2H3]leucine labeled whole eggs (18 g protein, 17 g fat) or egg whites (18 g protein, 0 g fat) cooked in scrambled form.

Exogenous leucine appearance rates increased (P

<0.001) after protein ingestion with peak values of 513±57 nmol leucine·kg−1·min−1 occurring at 75 min after egg white ingestion compared with 496±38 nmol leucine·kg−1·min−1 at 120 min after whole egg ingestion.

The total amount of protein derived leucine that became available in circulation over the 300 min postprandial period was similar (P=0.53) between whole egg (75±2.3%) and egg white ingestion (77±1.7%).

Whole egg ingestion supported greater post-exercise myofibrillar protein synthesis rates when compared to egg white ingestion (0.034%/h and 0.024%/h respectively; P=0.02).

We conclude that whole egg ingestion stimulates the muscle protein synthetic response more effectively than the consumption of isonitrogenous amounts of egg whites during recovery from resistance exercise in healthy young men. This effect is not attributed to divergent postprandial protein-derived amino acid availability, suggesting that some intrinsic factor within whole eggs and/or the divergent macronutrient profile may have modified the anabolic potential of this complete protein.

Parathyroid hormone stimulates adipose tissue browning: a pathway to muscle wasting
Thomas, Sandhya         Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition & Metabolic Care: May 2017 - Volume 20 - Issue 3 - p 153–157

Purpose of review: Studying organ-to-organ communications (i.e. crosstalk) uncovers mechanisms regulating metabolism in several tissues. What is missing is identification of mediators of different catabolic conditions contributing to losses of adipose and muscle tissues. Identifying mediators involved in organ-to-organ crosstalk could lead to innovative therapeutic strategies because several disorders such as chronic kidney disease (CKD), cancer cachexia, and other catabolic conditions share signals of worsening metabolism and increased risk of mortality.

Recent findings: A recent breakthrough published in Cell Metabolism leads to the conclusion that parathyroid hormone (PTH) and parathyroid hormone-related peptide (PTHrP) cause ‘browning’ of white adipose tissue plus energy production via activation of uncoupling protein-1. Browning was associated with muscle wasting in mouse models of cancer and CKD. The pathway to browning includes PTH/PTHrP activation of protein kinase A (PKA) and lost muscle mass via the ubiquitin proteasome proteolytic system (UPS).

Summary: The results suggest that crosstalk between muscle and fat contributes in a major way to tissue catabolism. The pathway initiated by PTH or PTHrP is novel and it suggests potential interrelationships that control metabolism in other catabolic conditions. Identifying how the parathyroid hormone–PKA–UPS axis relates to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other insulin-resistant conditions remains unclear.

Skeletal muscle wasting: new role of nonclassical reninangiotensin system
Cabello-Verrugio           Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition & Metabolic Care: May 2017 - Volume 20 - Issue 3 - p 158–163

Purpose of review: Skeletal muscle can be affected by many physiological and pathological conditions that contribute to the development of muscle weakness, including skeletal muscle loss, inflammatory processes, or fibrosis. Therefore, research into therapeutic treatment alternatives or alleviation of these effects on skeletal muscle is of great importance.

Recent findings: Recent studies have shown that angiotensin (1–7) [Ang-(1–7)] – a vasoactive peptide of the nonclassical axis in the renin–angiotensin system (RAS) – and its Mas receptor are expressed in skeletal muscle. Ang-(1–7), through its Mas receptor, prevents or diminishes deleterious effects induced by skeletal muscle disease or injury. Specifically, the Ang-(1–7)–Mas receptor axis modulates molecular mechanisms involved in muscle mass regulation, such as the ubiquitin proteasome pathway, the insulin-like growth factor type 1/Akt (protein kinase B) pathway, or myonuclear apoptosis, and also inflammation and fibrosis pathways.

Summary: Although further research into this topic and the possible side effects of Ang-(1–7) is necessary, these findings are promising, and suggest that the Ang-(1–7)–Mas axis can be considered a possible therapeutic target for treating patients with muscular disorders.
