Protein interaction mapping interpretation of none alcoholic fatty liver disease model of rats after fat diet feeding
Aim This study investigates the effect of fat diet on gene expression profile in rat liver via protein-protein interaction mapping analysis. Background Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a prevalent condition of liver in the world. This progressive metabolic disease is representative with fat accumulation in the patients' liver that can led to advance stages, namely, cirrhosis and eventually cancer. Methods Differentially expressed genes of NAFLD rat liver after 2, 4 and 6 weeks fat diet feeding were analyzed via GEO2R and protein-protein interaction network by Cytoscape v3.6.0. and the related plug-ins. The important genes were assigned based on degree and betweenness centrality analysis and enriched using ClueGO+CluePedia Plug-in. Results GAPDH, PRDM10, TP53, AKT1, INS, ALB, SRC, MAPK1, ACLY, ACACA, DECR1, ACACB, MBOAT4, TNF, EHHADH and JUN genes were introduced as key genes related to the fat diet fed NAFLD rats. Fatty acid biosynthesis and four other terms were introduced as the main related ones to the essential genes. Conclusion The introduced critical genes and the related terms may describe NAFLD molecular condition and its progression to the other severe metabolic diseases. Moreover, these potential biomarkers may be monitored for diagnosis and treatment approaches after validation investigations.
Biochemical and histopathological study on preventive effects of Punica granatum L. extract on fatty liver disease in the rats receiving high fat diet.
Background and Aim: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is recognized as a metabolic liver disease in the world. The purpose of this study was to investigate the preventive effects of Punica granatum extract on fatty liver disease in the rats receiving high fat diet. Material and Methods: In this study rats were divided into 6 groups: healthy control, feeding with high fat diet, feeding ...متن کامل
The Effect of Aerobic Continuous Training on Myonectin, Insulin Resistance and Liver Enzymes in Rats with Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
Background. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, is the most common reason of liver disorders that can be controlled by dieting and regular physical activity. Objectives. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of aerobic continuous training on serum levels of myonectin, insulin resistance and liver enzymes in rats with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Methods. Thirty-four male W...متن کامل
Effect of Ziziphus jujuba Mill., Cichorium intybus L. and Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertn. Combination Extract on Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Rats
Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) includes a range of liver damage from early steatosis to cirrhosis. Although NAFLD prevalence in the world is increasing, but there is no effective treatment for it. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of combined extract of jujube, chicory and silymarin on NAFLD induced by high-fat diet (HFD) in rats. Method: In th...متن کامل
Inhibition of 5-Lipoxygenase inhibitor zileuton in high-fat diet-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease progression model
Objective(s): Arachidonic Acid/5-lipoxygenase (AA/5-LOX) pathway connects lipid metabolism and proinflammatory cytokine, which are both related to the development and progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Therefore, the present study was designed to investigate the role of AA/5-LOX pathway in progression of NAFLD, and the effect of zileuton, an inhibitor of 5-LOX, in this mod...متن کامل
Protective Effect of Aerobic Training along with Resveratrol on Mitochondrial Dynamics of Cardiac Myocytes in Animal Model of Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
Background & objectives: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of aerobic training along with resveratrol on cardiac expression of OPA1 and DRP1 in NAFLD male rats. Methods: In this experimental study, forty eight male Wistar rats were classified into two groups: NAFLD (n=40) and Control-N...متن کامل
