Rho-associated, coiled-coil-containing protein kinase 1 regulates development of diabetic kidney disease via modulation of fatty acid metabolism.

Kidney Int 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Division of Diabetes, Metabolism, and Endocrinology, Department of Internal Medicine, The Jikei University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Dysregulation of fatty acid utilization is increasingly recognized as a significant component of diabetic kidney disease. Rho-associated, coiled-coil-containing protein kinase (ROCK) is activated in the diabetic kidney, and studies over the past decade have illuminated ROCK signaling as an essential pathway in diabetic kidney disease. Here, we confirmed the distinct role of ROCK1, an isoform of ROCK, in fatty acid metabolism using glomerular mesangial cells and ROCK1 knockout mice. Read More

Prim Care 2022 Jun 22;49(2):239-254. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Department of Internal Medicine, East Carolina University, 521 Moye Boulevard, 2nd Floor, Greenville, NC 27834, USA.

Diabetes-related microvascular complications include diabetic neuropathy (eg, diabetic symmetric polyneuropathy (DSPN), cardiac autonomic neuropathy, gastroparesis, enteropathy, erectile dysfunction, female sexual dysfunction, and hypoglycemia unawareness), diabetic kidney disease (DKD), and diabetes-related eye disease (eg, diabetic retinopathy (DR) and cataract). Both diabetes duration and degree of glycemic control strongly correlate with the development of microvascular complications. The development of diabetes-related microvascular complications interferes with the patient's quality of life and poses higher health system costs. Read More

Foretinib mitigates cutaneous nerve fiber loss in experimental diabetic neuropathy.

Sci Rep 2022 May 19;12(1):8444. Epub 2022 May 19.

Neuroscience and Mental Health Program, SickKids Research Institute, 686 Bay St, Toronto, ON, M5G 0A4, Canada.

Diabetes is by far, the most common cause of neuropathy, inducing neurodegeneration of terminal sensory nerve fibers associated with loss of sensation, paresthesia, and persistent pain. Foretinib prevents die-back degeneration in cultured sensory and sympathetic neurons by rescuing mitochondrial activity and has been proven safe in prospective clinical trials. Here we aimed at investigating a potential neuroprotective effect of Foretinib in experimental diabetic neuropathy. Read More

The NOD Mouse Beyond Autoimmune Diabetes.

Front Immunol 2022 29;13:874769. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Immunology-Oncology Division, Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital Research Center, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Autoimmune diabetes arises spontaneously in Non-Obese Diabetic (NOD) mice, and the pathophysiology of this disease shares many similarities with human type 1 diabetes. Since its generation in 1980, the NOD mouse, derived from the Cataract Shinogi strain, has represented the gold standard of spontaneous disease models, allowing to investigate autoimmune diabetes disease progression and susceptibility traits, as well as to test a wide array of potential treatments and therapies. Beyond autoimmune diabetes, NOD mice also exhibit polyautoimmunity, presenting with a low incidence of autoimmune thyroiditis and Sjögren's syndrome. Read More

Using Corneal Confocal Microscopy to Identify Therapeutic Agents for Diabetic Neuropathy.

J Clin Med 2022 Apr 21;11(9). Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Department of Pathology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA.

Corneal confocal microscopy (CCM) is emerging as a tool for identifying small fiber neuropathy in both peripheral neuropathies and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS). The value of corneal nerves as biomarkers for efficacy of clinical interventions against small fiber neuropathy and neurodegenerative disease is less clear but may be supported by preclinical studies of investigational agents. We, therefore, used diverse investigational agents to assess concordance of efficacy against corneal nerve loss and peripheral neuropathy in a mouse model of diabetes. Read More

Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové, Charles University, Šimkova 870, 500 03 Hradec Králové, Czech Republic.

L-serine plays an essential role in a broad range of cellular functions including protein synthesis, neurotransmission, and folate and methionine cycles and synthesis of sphingolipids, phospholipids, and sulphur containing amino acids. A hydroxyl side-chain of L-serine contributes to polarity of proteins, and serves as a primary site for binding a phosphate group to regulate protein function. D-serine, its D-isoform, has a unique role. Read More
