What ARE Mitochondria ? EndoSymbiotic Bacteria “The Little Friends Within” Maternally Inherited Co-Incident DNA Aerobic Cellular Respiration (90%) Chloroplast’s Gas Exchanger (O 2 ) (CO 2 ) Signaling System The “ PowerHouses of the Cell ” Oxidative - Phosphorylative Coupling Endothermic Heat Source Generation of ATP
Mitochondrial Chemiosmosis The BioEnergetics of ATP Generation Cytosol H+ ATP +i P ADP
Oxidative - Phosphorylation COUPLING : ATP synthesis (phosphorylation) must be coupled to the generation of a H+ reservoir/pH gradient (oxidation) between the mitochondrial membranes. H+ H+ H+ ATP H+
Elemental H+ ATP ATP-Synthase ADP + iP (phosphate) Remember this
ATP-Synthase: Hydrogen-Powered H+
What Causes Insulin Resistance? What Causes Pancreatic ß eta Cell Impairment?
Insulin Resistance: Skeletal Muscle Triglyceride Content of skeletal muscle is directly proportional to Insulin Resistance Increased Circulating Free Fatty Acids (FFAs) result in suppression of Insulin-mediated Glucose Uptake Triglyceride accumulates either by 1) Fat overload or 2) Diminished ß- oxidation Intramyocellular Lipid (IMCL) more closely correlates with insulin resistance than BMI, waist-to-hip ratios, or total body fat (mcGarry)
Which Came First? Insulin Resistance or Fatty Acid accumulation? With hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp, Artificial elevation of plasma FreeFatty Acid concentration in otherwise healthy humans leads to: 1)22-61% increase in Intramyocellular Lipid content (Brechtel et al. 2001) 2)40-50% loss of either oxidative glucose disposal or Muscle glycogen synthesis (Boden 1995) With hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp, Glucose infusions in healthy, young, lean yet insulin resistant Offspring of patients with type-2 diabetes: 1)60% decrease in glucose uptake within skeletal muscle insulin- resistant offspring of T2DM parents 2)80% increase in the intramyocellular lipid content (IMCL) 3)Co-incident 30% reduction in mitochondrial phosphorylation (Petersen et.al. NEJM 2004)
Mitochondrial Dysfunction Loss of Oxidative-Phosphorylation with subsequent declines in ATP generation Petersen et.al. PLoS 2005 MRS (magnetic resonance spectroscopy) assessment of ATP- Synthase flux and intramyocellular inorganic phospate in healthy,normoglycemic (i.e. not “diabetic”) lean Insulin-resistant offspring of T2DM patients versus non-insulin resistant controls Results: 1)Insulin stimulated Glucose uptake declined 50% in IR group 2)2-Fold increase in IntraMyocellularLipid Content in IR Group vs. 3)90% increrase in ATP synthesis rate in Control Group vs. 4)5% increase in mitochondrial ATP synthesis rate in IR Group 5)Insulin-induced phosphate increases correlated with insulin- stimulated increases in ATP synthesis in both groups
Mechanism of InAction Loss of Mitochondrial phosphorylation results in the accumulation of triglycerides and other Fatty Acid metabolites, particularly DAGs, Fatty AcylCoA, and ceramides that embed in the cellular membrane leading to a co-incident loss of insulin sensitivity. Deep pathologic mechanism involves the activation of Protein Kinaase C-Theta (PKC- ) and the serine/threonine phosphorylation of the Insulin-Receptor Substrate (IRS-1) inhibitting GLUT4 translocation resulting in decreased glucose removal from bloodstream Morino et.al. 2006
Pancreatic ß eta Cell: Glucose sensing, Mitochondria, and Insulin release Beta-cell mitochondria serve as fuel sensors that link glucose exposure to insulin release: 1)GLUT2 transporters introduce glucose to mitochondria causing increased ATP:ADP ratio 2)K+ gate closure--> depolarization 3)Voltage sensitive Ca++ channels open 4)Exocytosis of insulin storage granules to bloodstream ATP: ADP K+ Ca++ Insulin    GLUT2
ß-Cell Impairment: Loss of glucose-stimulated insulin release Superoxide radicals induce UCP-2 upregulation contributing to proton leak, ATP : ADP, and loss of glucose stimulated insulin release: 1)Hyperglycemia/Fatty acid excess causes chemi- osmotic overload and superoxide (O 2 - ) generation 2)O 2 - as oxidative SIGNAL, upregulates UCP-2 with decreased ATP production 3)Resulting in loss of insulin secretory response 4)UCP-2 upregulation decreases SO- generartion = tight negative feedback (SuperOxide Radical) ATP : ADP
WAKE UP !!!
Uncoupling Protein 1 (UCP1) Produced in brown adipose tissue of newborn humans and hibernating mammals. (we eventually lose our “ baby fat ” ) Unique to mammals. Diverts energy from ATP generation to Adaptive Thermogenesis (Heat Release) Proton partioning Thermogenic uncoupling occurs in response to overeating and cold Decreases mitochondrial production of Oxidative damage Adaptive response to cold temperature mediated by norepinephrine with secondary effect of regulating energy balance. Increased expression due to Fatty acid-induced Superoxide generation from mitochondria. Inhibited by purine nucletide. NOT found in skeletal muscle. UCP1 expression in the smooth muscle cells can increase hypertension and dietary athersclerosis w/o effecting cholesterol levels (was this the problem with the GLITzares ask Dina)PPAR-gamma agonists UCP1 expression also causes INCREASED Superoxide expression in the vasculature = oxidative stress-induced vascular damage.
Uncoupling Protein 2 (UCP2) UCP1 homologue, but expressed in white adipose tissues of humans during feeding, rather than brown adipose tissue of hibernating animals. Widely expressed among mammals. UCP2 ubiquity in human tissue including macrophage-rich tissues Critical increase (with UPC3) in metabolic adaptation to fasting regardless of weight (lean or obese) Fetal hepatic hematopoeisis in Kupffer cells until birth due to UCP2 Possibly critical for macrophage differentiation Essentially Non-Thermogenic un-coupling Still induced by superoxide and “anti-oxidant” by negative feedback UPC homologue (with UPC3) of the skeletal muscle Inducible neuroprotective protein by cellular redox of apoptotic suppression Extensive expression in Spleen, Lung and macrophages suggests immunity or inflammatory dampening of ROS defenses Negative regulation of insulin secretion in Pancreatic Beta -cell contributing significantly to Type 2 Diabetes induced by superoxide generation
Uncoupling Protein 3 (UCP3) Found ONLY in skeletal muscle in humans (with UCP2) More homologous to UCP2 than to UCP1, and un-affected by cold And yet: possibly thermogenic in skeletal muscle based on function in yeast cells Critical increase (with UPC2) in metabolic adaptation to fasting regardless of weight (lean or obese). Player in energy balance Increased expression due to fatty acid-induced Superoxide generation from mitochondria. Inhibited by purine nucleotide. Not primarily conserved in humans for uncoupling purposes (?) and not a major determinant of metabolic rate Increased by fatty acid entry into mitochondria beyond its capacity for beta-oxidation. May be translocating fatty acids out of the matrix Possiblle role in “ proton partitioning ” (reproductive vs. repair ?) UCP3 overexpression may lead to hyperphagia without co-incident weight gain Muscle UPC3 increased by thyroid hormone and fasting Increased ROS generation associated with diminished UPC3 uncoupling effects. Yet still not required for bodyweight regulation, exercise tolerance, fatty-acid oxidation, or cold-induced thermogenisis Important in MDMA-induced hyperthermia
PGC-1 “peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-Gamma” Co-activator One Nuclear protein whose expression is induced by COLD (through adrenergic agonism), hi-caloric diets, and refeeding following fasting Induced within Brown Adipose Tissue and Skeletal muscle CAUSES: 1)Activates PPAR-Gamma to “proliferate peroxisomes” 2)UCP-1 upregulation or Adaptive Thermogenesis 3)Upregulatiiion for Genes of Oxidative-Phosphorylation 4)Stimulates DOUBLING of Mitochondrial content through NRF-1 and mtTFA PGC-1 links the external environment (cold, diet, oxygen, environmental stressors) with mitochondrial biogenesis thereby constituting the Adaptive Interface between outside and inside.

RED, RED WINE In diabetics, Polyphenolics from De- alcoholized muscadine grape wine still demonstrated: – blood glucose – insulin – glycated hemoglobin – Vitamin C and E levels – monounsaturated fatty acid cell content – hepatic functioning (Banini,Nutrition 2006) Red Wine Consumption (360 ml/day x 2 wks) resulted in 43% improvement in glucose disposal compared to controls (Napoli 2005) Contains Resveratrol………..
Resveratrol Now considered to be a MINOR, not “major” ingredient of Red Wine Has recently been shown to Mimic the effects of Caloric Restriction: Energy shunt towards tissue repair (anti-oxidation) vs. reproduction 30% fewer calories approximates a 30% increase in LifeSpan * calories per day but untested in Humans May be more beneficial than exercise SIRT1 genes co-ordinate the Repair Response: turning on Sirtuins SIRT genes 3, 4, 5 are in the mitochondria; 6 & 7 are in the nucleus SIRT 1 genes increase the # of mitochondria produced by neurons Sirtuins (their proteins) activate PGC-1 PGC-1 may also generate extra chemicals to detoxify free radicals(st.pierre) Fasting induces deacetylation of PGC-1 BY SIRT1 Fatty Acid oxidation “It is a proven artifact that Resveratrol activates sirtuins” --Dr. DiStefano, Elixir “Resveratrol…. : Improves health and survival of mice on a high-calorie diet” (Baur etal, Nature 2006) Improves mitochondrial function and protects against metabolic disease by activating SIRT1 and PGC-1 ” (Lagouge, Auwerx, et.al., Cell 2006) [as “Sirtuin Activators] mimic caloric restriction and delay aging in metazoans” (Wood JG, Rogina B, Sinclair D, et.al.

Symbiosis CO 2 MitochondrionChloroplast
The boy nodded his understanding. "Can I ask you something?” The Jedi Master nodded. "What are midi-chlorians?" Wind whipped at Qui-Gon's long hair, blowing strands of it across his strong face. "Midi-chlorians are microscopic life-forms that reside within the cells of all living things and communicate with the Force.” “They live inside of me?" the boy asked. "In your cells.…. We are symbionts with the midi- chlorians." "Symbi-what?" "Symbionts. Life-forms living together for mutual advantage. Without the midi-chlorians, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force. Our midi-chlorians continually speak to us, Annie, telling us the will of the Force." "They do?" Qui-Gon cocked one eyebrow. "When you learn to quiet your mind, you will hear them speaking to you." Anakin thought about it for a moment, then frowned. "I don't understand." Qui-Gon smiled, and his eyes were warm and secretive. "With time and training, Annie, you will." ---from “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” novelization by Terry Brooks Midi-chlorians ( Mitochondria & Chloroplasts ) Mitochondria in the Modern Mythos

Blueberries ( Vaccinium myrtillus )
Adrenalin stress types, under sympathetic nervous system stress, will trigger peripeheral coversions of Thyroxine to metabolically active T3 resulting not only in an upregulation of a basal metabolic rate but the increased expression of of all three uncoupling proteins (Ricquier Biochem Journal on UCPs) ( Masaki FEBS letter 1997)( Gong DW T3 B3 adrenergic agonists J Biol Chem 1997) SAVE THIS! PPAR -gamma can be upregulated by oleic acid perhaps:this could likely lead to upregulation of UCPs in the BAT (as thiazollidinediones upregulate UCP3 in adipose tissue yet unfortunately down regulate UCP2 in skeletal muscle)
