Adler AI, Boyko EJ, Schraer CD, Murphy NJ.: Lower prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes associated with daily seal oil or salmon consumption among Alaska Natives. Diabetes Care. 1994 Dec;17(12):1498-501. In our study, the average daily consumption of ω-3 PUFAs(polyunsaturated fatty acid) from seal oil was ~8 g. We based this estimate on a 30% ω-3 PUFA content of seal oil. Compared with less-than-daily consumption, both daily seal oil (odds ratio [OR] 0.2, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.1-0.8) and daily salmon consumption (OR 0.5, CI 0.2-1.1) were associated with a lower prevalence of glucose intolerance, controlling for age, ethnicity, body mass index, and sex. The effects were similar when limited to newly discovered cases: OR 0.3, CI 0.1-1.3 for seal oil and OR 0.4, CI 0.1-1.3 for salmon. Consumption of seal oil at least five times per week was required to reduce risk.

BACKGROUND Trials have shown a beneficial effect of n−3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in patients with a previous myocardial infarction or heart failure. We evaluated the potential benefit of such therapy in patients with multiple cardiovascular risk factors or atherosclerotic vascular disease who had not had a myocardial infarction.
METHODS In this double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, we enrolled a cohort of patients who were followed by a network of 860 general practitioners in Italy. Eligible patients were men and women with multiple cardiovascular risk factors or atherosclerotic vascular disease but not myocardial infarction. Patients were randomly assigned to n−3 fatty acids (1 g daily) or placebo (olive oil). The initially specified primary end point was the cumulative rate of death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, and nonfatal stroke. At 1 year, after the event rate was found to be lower than anticipated, the primary end point was revised as time to death from cardiovascular causes or admission to the hospital for cardiovascular causes.
ADVERSE EVENTS Gastrointestinal side effects (abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, and other symptoms) were the most frequently reported adverse drug reactions, but the incidence did not differ significantly between the two groups (Table 3). The investigators attributed two cases of severe epistaxis, both in patients who were also receiving anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy, to the experimental treatment. Among the serious adverse events, there were 490 diagnoses of cancer among patients who received n−3 fatty acids (7.9% of patients) and 453 among those who received placebo (7.2%, P = 0.19); bleeding occurred in 16 patients who received n−3 fatty acids (0.3%) and in 12 who received placebo (0.2%, P = 0.44).
The beneficial effect of n−3 fatty acids in those two trials was due to a reduction in sudden deaths from cardiac causes. It is conceivable that the effects of n−3 fatty acids become manifest primarily in patients who are particularly prone to ventricular arrhythmic events (e.g., those with a myocardial scar or left ventricular dysfunction). Our trial had extremely limited power to detect a reduction in sudden deaths from cardiac causes or arrhythmic events. The safety profile of n−3 fatty acids in this population of older persons who are already receiving many treatments for chronic disease could be of interest for their use in patient populations that are more prone to fatal and nonfatal arrhythmic events.
RESULTS Of the 12,513 patients enrolled, 6244 were randomly assigned to n−3 fatty acids and 6269 to placebo. With a median of 5 years of follow-up, the primary end point occurred in 1478 of 12,505 patients included in the analysis (11.8%), of whom 733 of 6239 (11.7%) had received n−3 fatty acids and 745 of 6266 (11.9%) had received placebo (adjusted hazard ratio with n−3 fatty acids, 0.97; 95% confidence interval, 0.88 to 1.08; P=0.58). The same null results were observed for all the secondary end points.
CONCLUSIONS In a large general-practice cohort of patients with multiple cardiovascular risk factors, daily treatment with n−3 fatty acids did not reduce cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. (Funded by Società Prodotti Antibiotici and others; ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00317707.)
Ubiquitin is a small regulatory protein that has been found in almost all tissues (ubiquitously) of eukaryotic organisms. It directs proteins to compartments in the cell, including the proteasome which destroys and recycles proteins. Ubiquitin can be attached to proteins and label them for destruction. This discovery won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 2004. Ubiquitin tags can also direct proteins to other locations in the cell, where they control other protein and cell mechanisms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubiquitin In the ubiquitination cascade, E1 can bind with dozens of E2s, which can bind with hundreds of E3s in a hierarchical way. Other ubiquitin-like proteins (ULPs) are also modified via the E1–E2–E3 cascade. E3 enzymes possess one of two domains: The HECT (Homologous to the E6-AP Carboxyl Terminus) domain The RING (Really Interesting New Gene) domain (or the closely related U-box domain) 2009

Background The combination of ataxia and hypogonadism was first described more than a century ago, but its genetic basis has remained elusive.
Methods We performed whole-exome sequencing in a patient with ataxia and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, followed by targeted sequencing of candidate genes in similarly affected patients. Neurologic and reproductive endocrine phenotypes were characterized in detail. The effects of sequence variants and the presence of an epistatic interaction were tested in a zebrafish model.
Figure 1. Segregation of RNF216 and OTUD4 Mutations in the Index Pedigree and Identification of Additional RNF216 Mutations in Unrelated Probands. The seven-generation pedigree shown in Panel A includes Patients 1, 2, and 3, all of whom presented with ataxia, dementia, and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and were homozygous for both RNF216 p.R751C and OTUD4 p.G333V. Double lines indicate consanguineous unions. Genotyped, unaffected family members are shown to be either homozygous for the nonmutated alleles (denoted with a + symbol) or heterozygous for one or both changes. The pedigrees shown in Panel B are for the families of additional RNF216 mutation-positive patients (Patients 4 through 8), all of whom presented with ataxia and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Squares denote male family members, circles female family members, solid symbols affected family members, slashes deceased family members, diamonds siblings of either sex, the triangle miscarriages, and Arabic numbers the number of siblings or miscarriages.
Figure 2. Functional Studies of rnf216 in Zebrafish. Panels A through D show dorsal views of control zebrafish embryos (Panel A) and embryos injected with rnf216 morpholino oligonucleotides (MO) (Panel B), rnf216 MO plus nonmutant human RNF216 (Panel C), and rnf216 MO plus mutant human RNF216 (with RNF216 carrying the p.R751C mutation identified in the index pedigree) (Panel D) at 3 days after fertilization (staining with an antibody against α acetylated tubulin). The circles outline the area of the optic tectum, the structure on which all measurements were based. The bar graph in Panel E shows the relative size of the optic tectum in control embryos and the embryos injected with rnf216 MO, rnf216 MO plus nonmutant human RNF216, and rnf216 MO plus mutant human RNF216. P values are based on two-tailed t-tests. I bars indicate standard errors. AU denotes arbitrary units.
Figure 3. Epistatic Effects of the OTUD4 p.G333V Allele. Panels A through F show dorsal views of control zebrafish embryos (Panel A) and embryos injected with rnf216 MO (morpholino oligonucleotides) (Panel B), otud4 MO (Panel C), double MO (DMO, rnf216 MO plus otud4 MO) (Panel D), double MO plus nonmutant human OTUD4 (Panel E), and double (DMO) plus mutant human OTUD4 (OTUD4 carrying the p.G333V mutation identified in the index pedigree) (Panel F) at 3 days after fertilization (anti-α acetylated tubulin stain). The asterisks indicate the optic tecta that were measured to assess the differences between the conditions being evaluated. The bar graph in Panel G shows the mean relative size of the optic tecta in control embryos and the five groups of injected embryos. I bars indicate standard errors. P values are based on two-tailed t-tests.
Panels H, I, and J show dorsal views of control embryos (Panel H) and embryos injected with DMO (Panel I) and DMO plus nonmutant human OTUD4 (Panel J) at 3 days after fertilization (anti-α acetylated tubulin stain). The rectangles outline the cerebellar area; maximum disorganization is observed in embryos injected only with DMO (Panel I). The bar graph in Panel K shows the percentage of embryos with cerebellar defects under the conditions being evaluated (as shown in Panels A through F and Panels H, I, and J).
Figure 4. Neuroradiologic and Neuropathological Findings. Panel A shows a sagittal T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging scan of the brain in Patient 3. Diffuse cerebellar atrophy (arrow) and cortical atrophy can be seen. Panel B shows a transverse image obtained with fluid-attenuated inversion recovery imaging, revealing multiple distinct and confluent foci of hyperintensity in the white matter. In Panel C, immunohistochemical analysis of a hippocampal brain section from Patient 2 shows a neuronal intranuclear inclusion with immunoreactivity (brown) to an antibody against ubiquitin, counterstained with hematoxylin and eosin. An electron micrograph of the hippocampal neurons, in Panel D, also shows an intranuclear inclusion, which consists of aggregates of granular material and fine filaments, 10 to 15 nm in diameter (arrow), that are for the most part randomly oriented. The scale bar corresponds to 1 μm. RNF216 encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase that attaches ubiquitin to protein substrates, marking them for proteasome-mediated degradation.
Figure 5. Endocrine Phenotypes. In Panels A through D, the graphs at the left show the endogenous secretion of luteinizing hormone over a period of up to 12 hours. Patient 6 was studied on two occasions, 15 months apart (Panels A and B). Arrowheads indicate pulses of luteinizing hormone secretion, and boxes duration of sleep; the shading indicates the reference range for healthy men and women. Concentrations of estradiol (E2) and testosterone (T), measured from pooled samples obtained during the study, are indicated. In Panels A, B, and D, the graphs at the right show the response to exogenous pulsatile gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) over the course of up to 7 days. The dose of GnRH was 75 ng per kilogram of body weight, with the exception of the first dose of GnRH on day 1 for Patient 6 (Panel A), which was 165 ng per kilogram. (Note the difference in the y axis scales in Panels A and B.) In Panel C, the graph at the right shows the secretion of luteinizing hormone in response to varying doses of GnRH (black circles and regression line). The data for the patient fall to the right of the 95% confidence interval (dashed red lines) for the mean amplitude of the response to a range of GnRH doses in 6 other men with idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (solid red line). OTUD4 encodes a deubiquitinating enzyme. Deubiquitinases allow target proteins and ubiquitin itself to be recycled and often function in partnership with specific E3 ligases.
Results Digenic homozygous mutations in RNF216 and OTUD4, which encode a ubiquitin E3 ligase and a deubiquitinase, respectively, were found in three affected siblings in a consanguineous family. Additional screening identified compound heterozygous truncating mutations in RNF216 in an unrelated patient and single heterozygous deleterious mutations in four other patients. Knockdown of rnf216 or otud4 in zebrafish embryos induced defects in the eye, optic tectum, and cerebellum; combinatorial suppression of both genes exacerbated these phenotypes, which were rescued by nonmutant, but not mutant, human RNF216 or OTUD4 messenger RNA. All patients had progressive ataxia and dementia. Neuronal loss was observed in cerebellar pathways and the hippocampus; surviving hippocampal neurons contained ubiquitin- immunoreactive intranuclear inclusions. Defects were detected at the hypothalamic and pituitary levels of the reproductive endocrine axis.
Conclusion The syndrome of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, ataxia, and dementia can be caused by inactivating mutations in RNF216 or by the combination of mutations in RNF216 and OTUD4. These findings link disordered ubiquitination to neurodegeneration and reproductive dysfunction and highlight the power of whole-exome sequencing in combination with functional studies to unveil genetic interactions that cause disease.
