ABSTRACT The increased incidence of obesity and related disorders in Western societies requires a thorough understanding of the adipogenic process. Data at the protein level of this process are scarce. Therefore we performed a proteome analysis of differentiating and starving 3T3-L1 cells using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis combined with mass spectrometry. Effects of different starvation conditions were examined by subjecting 3T3-L1 adipocytes to caloric restriction, either in the absence or the presence of the lipolysis inducer tumor necrosis factor-alpha. Ninety-three differentially expressed proteins were found during differentiation and starvation of 3T3-L1 cells, 50 of which were identified. GenMAPP/MAPP-finder software revealed a non-reciprocal regulation of the glycolytic pathway during 3T3-L1 differentiation followed by starvation. Furthermore, proteins involved in growth regulation, cytoskeletal rearrangements and protein modification, 16 of which have not been described before in 3T3-L1 cells, were identified. In conclusion, our data provide valuable information for further understanding of the adipogenic process.

    ABSTRACT: Anatomically separate fat depots differ in size, function, and contribution to pathological states such as the metabolic syndrome. We isolated pre-adipocytes from different adipose depots, omental, subcutaneous and intramuscular, of beef cattle, and cultured in vitro to determine the basis for the variations and attribute these variations to the inherent properties of adipocyte progenitors. The proliferating cells from all depots before the confluence were harvested and the proteome was analyzed by a functional proteomic approach, involving 2-DE and MALDI-TOF/TOF. More than 252 protein spots were identified, selected and analyzed by Image Master (ver 7.0) and MALDI-TOF/TOF. Further, our analysis showed that there were specific differences in proteome expression patterns among proliferating precursor cells from the three depots. Sixteen proteins were found to be differentially expressed and these were identified as proteins involved in cellular processes, heat shock/chaperones, redox proteins, cytoskeletal proteins and metabolic enzymes. The results also enabled us to understand the basic roles of these proteins in different inherent properties exhibited by adipose tissue depots.

    ABSTRACT: Satellite cells are skeletal muscle progenitor/stem cells that reside between the basal lamina and plasma membranes of skeletal fibers in vivo. These cells can give rise to both myogenic and adipogenic cells. Given the possible role for differentiation of satellite cells into adipocytes in marbling and in some pathological disorders like sarcopenia, knowledge of the proteins involved in such process remains obscure. Using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis coupled with mass spectrometry, we investigated the proteins that are differentially expressed during adipogenic differentiation of satellite cells from bovine longissimus muscle. Our proteome mapping strategy to identify the differentially expressed intracellular proteins during adipogenic differentiation revealed a total of 25 different proteins. The proteins up-regulated during adipogenic differentiation of satellite cells like Cathepsin H precursor, Retinal dehydrogenase 1, Enoyl-CoA hydratase, Ubiquinol-cytochrome-c reductase, T-complex protein 1 subunit beta and ATP synthase D chain were found to be associated with lipid metabolism. The down-regulated proteins like LIM protein, annexin proteins, cofilin-1, Rho GDP-dissociation inhibitor 1 and septin-2, identified in the present study were found to be associated with myogenesis. These results clearly demonstrate that the adipogenic conversion of muscle satellite cells is associated with the up-regulated and down-regulated proteins involved in adipogenesis and myogenesis respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Back ground: Adipose tissue plays a crucial role in regulation of lipid and carbohydrate metabolism and many of these actions are regulated by insulin. Objective: The present study aims to detect potential novel protein targets for insulin sensitization in human adipose tissue by using an unbiased proteomic approaches. Method: Ten moderately obese, but otherwise healthy, subjects were treated with rosiglitazone 4 mg BD for 14 days. Protein profiles were obtained by two-dimensional gel (2-DG) electrophoresis and protein spots were identified using tandem mass spectrometry. Data were analyzed statistically by using student's paired t test. Results: Proteomic analysis revealed distinct up or down regulation (> 2-fold) in 122 protein spots on the 2-D gel images between day 0 and day 14 adipose tissue samples. Treatment with rosiglitazone increased the expression of extracellular matrix proteins including collagens, galectin-1, nidogen-1 and laminin. Analysis revealed differential expression of several other proteins involved in redox regulation (ferritin light chain, heat-shock protein β-5, heat- shock protein β-1), endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress (endoplasmin, 78 kDa glucose-regulated protein precursor), cytoskeletal reorganization (lamin A/C, vimentin, tropomyosin-3, tropomyosin-4, gelsolin, actin tubulin β-1 chain), signaling (calmodulin), and others (glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, α enolase). Conclusion: Such orchestrated changes in expression of multiple proteins provide insights into the mechanism undarlying the increased efficiency in adipocyte remodeling and differentiation and hence improvement of insulin sensitivity in response to rosiglitazone treatment.
