ABSTRACT In a cross-sectional study, oxidative stress in high vascular disease risk groups, ESRD (end-stage renal disease) and Type I diabetes, was assessed by measuring plasma protein carbonyls and comparing antioxidant capacity of HDL (high-density lipoprotein) as pertaining to PON1 (paraoxonase 1) activity and in vitro removal of LPO (lipid peroxides). ESRD subjects on haemodialysis (n=22), Type I diabetes subjects (n=20) without vascular complications and healthy subjects (n=23) were compared. Plasma protein carbonyls were higher in ESRD patients [0.16 (0.050) nmol/mg of protein; P=0.001; value is mean (SD)] relative to subjects with Type I diabetes [0.099 (0.014) nmol/mg of protein] and healthy subjects [0.093 (0.014) nmol/mg of protein]. Plasma PON1 activity, with and without correction for HDL-cholesterol, was lower in diabetes but did not differ in ESRD compared with healthy subjects. Plasma PON1 activity, without correction for HDL, did not differ between the three groups. In ESRD, plasma PON1 activity and plasma protein carbonyl concentrations were inversely related (r=-0.50, P<0.05). In an in vitro assay, LPO removal by HDL in ESRD subjects was greater than HDL from healthy subjects (P<0.01), whereas HDL from patients with Type I diabetes was less effective (P<0.01). Efficacy of LPO removal was unrelated to plasma PON1 activity, in vitro glycation or mild oxidation, but was impaired by marked oxidation and glycoxidation. Protein carbonyl levels are increased in ESRD but not in complication-free Type I diabetes. HDL antioxidant function is increased in ESRD, perhaps a compensatory response to increased oxidative stress, but is lower in Type I diabetes. HDL dysfunction is related to glycoxidation rather than glycation or PON1 activity.

    ABSTRACT: Type I diabetes mellitus (T1DM) increases atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease; however, the underlying pathophysiology is still incompletely understood. We investigated whether experimental T1DM impacts HDL-mediated reverse cholesterol transport (RCT). C57BL/6J mice with alloxan-induced T1DM had higher plasma cholesterol levels (P < 0.05), particularly within HDL, and increased hepatic cholesterol content (P < 0.001). T1DM resulted in increased bile flow (2.1-fold; P < 0.05) and biliary secretion of bile acids (BA, 10.5-fold; P < 0.001), phospholipids (4.5-fold; P < 0.001), and cholesterol (5.5-fold; P < 0.05). Hepatic cholesterol synthesis was unaltered, whereas BA synthesis was increased in T1DM (P < 0.001). Mass fecal BA output was significantly higher in T1DM mice (1.5-fold; P < 0.05), fecal neutral sterol excretion did not change due to increased intestinal cholesterol absorption (2.1-fold; P < 0.05). Overall in vivo macrophage-to-feces RCT, using [(3)H]cholesterol-loaded primary mouse macrophage foam cells, was 20% lower in T1DM (P < 0.05), mainly due to reduced tracer excretion within BA (P < 0.05). In vitro experiments revealed unchanged cholesterol efflux toward T1DM HDL, whereas scavenger receptor class BI-mediated selective uptake from T1DM HDL was lower in vitro and in vivo (HDL kinetic experiments) (P < 0.05), conceivably due to increased glycation of HDL-associated proteins (+65%, P < 0.01). In summary, despite higher mass biliary sterol secretion T1DM impairs macrophage-to-feces RCT, mainly by decreasing hepatic selective uptake, a mechanism conceivably contributing to increased cardiovascular disease in T1DM.

    ABSTRACT: Oxidative stress has been implicated in diabetes long-term complications. In this paper, we summarize the growing evidence suggesting that hyperglycemia-induced overproduction of superoxide by mitochondrial electron transport chain triggers a maladaptive response by affecting several metabolic and signaling pathways involved in the pathophysiology of cellular dysfunction and diabetic complications. In particular, it is our goal to describe physiological mechanisms underlying the mitochondrial free radical production and regulation to explain the oxidative stress derived from a high intracellular glucose concentration and the resulting maladaptive response that leads to a cellular dysfunction and pathological state. Finally, we outline potential therapies for diabetes focused to the prevention of mitochondrial oxidative damage.

    ABSTRACT: Blood-retina barrier leakage in diabetes results in extravasation of plasma lipoproteins. Intra-retinal modified LDLs have been implicated in diabetic retinopathy (DR), but their effects on retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells and the added effects of extravasated modified HDLs are unknown. In human retinas from individuals with and without diabetes and DR, immunohistochemistry was used to detect ApoB, ApoA1 and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress markers. In cell culture, human RPE cells were treated with native LDL (N-LDL) or heavily-oxidised glycated LDL (HOG-LDL) with or without pretreatment with native HDL (N-HDL) or heavily-oxidised glycated HDL (HOG-HDL). Cell viability, oxidative stress, ER stress, apoptosis and autophagy were assessed by Cell Counting Kit-8 assay, dichlorofluorescein assay, western blotting, immunofluorescence and TUNEL assay. In separate experiments, RPE cells were treated with lipid oxidation products, 7-ketocholesterol (7-KC, 5-40 μmol/l) or 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE, 5-80 μmol/l), with or without pretreatment with N-HDL or HOG-HDL. ApoB, ApoA1 staining and RPE ER stress were increased in the presence of DR. HOG-LDL but not N-LDL significantly decreased RPE cell viability and increased reactive oxygen species generation, ER stress, apoptosis and autophagy. Similarly, 4-HNE and 7-KC decreased viability and induced ER stress. Pretreatment with N-HDL mitigated these effects, whereas HOG-HDL was less effective by most, but not all, measures. In DR, extravascular modified LDL may promote RPE injury through oxidative stress, ER stress, autophagy and apoptosis. N-HDL has protective effects, but HOG-HDL is less effective. Extravasation and modification of HDL may modulate the injurious effects of extravasated modified LDL on the retinal pigment epithelium.
