Metabolic Detoxification of 2-Oxobutyrate by Remodeling Acetate Bypass.

Metabolites 2021 Jan 4;11(1). Epub 2021 Jan 4.

State Key Laboratory of Food Science and Technology, Jiangnan University, Wuxi 214122, China.

2-Oxobutyrate (2-OBA), as a toxic metabolic intermediate, generally arrests the cell growth of most microorganisms and blocks the biosynthesis of target metabolites. In this study, we demonstrated that using the acetate bypass to replace the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDHc) in could recharge the intracellular acetyl-CoA pool to alleviate the metabolic toxicity of 2-OBA. Furthermore, based on the crystal structure of pyruvate oxidase (PoxB), two candidate residues in the substrate-binding pocket of PoxB were predicted by computational simulation. Read More

Expanded roles of pyruvate-sensing PdhR in transcription regulation of the K-12 genome: fatty acid catabolism and cell motility.

Microb Genom 2020 10;6(10)

School of Agriculture, Meiji University, Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan.

The transcription factor PdhR has been recognized as the master regulator of the pyruvate catabolism pathway in , including both NAD-linked oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA by PDHc (pyruvate dehydrogenase complex) and respiratory electron transport of NADH to oxygen by Ndh-CyoABCD enzymes. To identify the whole set of regulatory targets under the control of pyruvate-sensing PdhR, we performed genomic SELEX (gSELEX) screening . A total of 35 PdhR-binding sites were identified along the K-12 genome, including previously identified targets. Read More

Analysis of the Growth and Metabolites of a Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex- Deficient Mutant in a Glycerol-Based Medium.

J Microbiol Biotechnol 2020 May;30(5):753-761

State Key Laboratory of Bioreactor Engineering, East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai 200237, P.R. China.

To determine the role of pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDHC) in , the growth and metabolism of PDHC-deficient mutant in glycerol-based medium were analyzed and compared with those of other strains. Under aerobic conditions, the PDHC activity was fourfold higher than that of pyruvate formate lyase (PFL), and blocking of PDHC caused severe growth defect and pyruvate accumulation, indicating that the carbon flux through pyruvate to acetyl coenzyme A mainly depended on PDHC. Under anaerobic conditions, although the PDHC activity was only 50% of that of PFL, blocking of PDHC resulted in more growth defect than blocking of PFL. Read More

Dual Inhibition of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex and Respiratory Chain Complex Induces Apoptosis by a Mitochondria-Targeted Fluorescent Organic Arsenical in vitro and in vivo.

ChemMedChem 2020 03 26;15(6):552-558. Epub 2020 Feb 26.

Department of Chemistry, Wuhan University, Wuhan, 430072, China.

Based on the potential therapeutic value in targeting mitochondria and the fluorophore tracing ability, a fluorescent mitochondria-targeted organic arsenical PDT-PAO-F16 was fabricated, which not only visualized the cellular distribution, but also exerted anti-cancer activity in vitro and in vivo via targeting pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDHC) and respiratory chain complexes in mitochondria. In details, PDT-PAO-F16 mainly accumulated into mitochondria within hours and suppressed the activity of PDHC resulting in the inhibition of ATP synthesis and thermogenesis disorder. Moreover, the suppression of respiratory chain complex I and IV accelerated the mitochondrial dysfunction leading to caspase family-dependent apoptosis. Read More

The N-terminal 1-55 residues domain of pyruvate dehydrogenase from Escherichia coli assembles as a dimer in solution.

Protein Eng Des Sel 2019 12;32(6):271-276

College of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Northwest A&F University, Yangling, China.

The pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDHc) from Escherichia coli is a large protein complex consisting of multiple copies of the pyruvate dehydrogenase (E1ec), dihydrolipoamide acetyltransferase (E2ec) and dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (E3ec). The N-terminal domain (NTD, residues 1-55) of E1ec plays a critical role in the interaction between E1ec and E2ec and the whole PDHc activity. Using circular dichroism, size-exclusion chromatography and dynamic light scattering spectroscopy, we show that the NTD of E1ec presents dimeric assembly under physiological condition. Read More

From Africa to Antarctica: Exploring the Metabolism of Fish Heart Mitochondria Across a Wide Thermal Range.

Front Physiol 2019 4;10:1220. Epub 2019 Oct 4.

Département de Biologie, Université du Québec à Rimouski, Rimouski, QC, Canada.

The thermal sensitivity of ectotherms is largely dictated by the impact of temperature on cellular bioenergetics, particularly on mitochondrial functions. As the thermal sensitivity of bioenergetic pathways depends on the structural and kinetic properties of its component enzymes, optimization of their function to different thermal niches is expected to have occurred through selection. In the present study, we sought to characterize mitochondrial phenotypic adjustments to thermal niches in eight ray-finned fish species occupying a wide range of thermal habitats by comparing the activities of key mitochondrial enzymes in their hearts.

Department of Urology, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas.

Cancer cells use alterations of normal metabolic processes to sustain proliferation indefinitely. Transcriptional and posttranscriptional control of the pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase (PDK) family is one way in which cancer cells alter normal pyruvate metabolism to fuel proliferation. PDKs can phosphorylate and inactivate the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDHC), which blocks oxidative metabolism of pyruvate by the mitochondria. Read More

Comprehensive Profile of Acute Mitochondrial Dysfunction in a Preclinical Model of Severe Penetrating TBI.

Front Neurol 2019 11;10:605. Epub 2019 Jun 11.

Brain Trauma Neuroprotection Branch, Center for Military Psychiatry and Neuroscience, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Silver Spring, MD, United States.

Mitochondria constitute a central role in brain energy metabolism, and play a pivotal role in the development of secondary pathophysiology and subsequent neuronal cell death following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Under normal circumstances, the brain consumes glucose as the preferred energy source for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production over ketones. To understand the comprehensive picture of substrate-specific mitochondrial bioenergetics responses following TBI, adult male rats were subjected to either 10% unilateral penetrating ballistic-like brain injury (PBBI) or sham craniectomy ( = 5 animals per group).

Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex deficiency is linked to regulatory loop disorder in the αV138M variant of human pyruvate dehydrogenase.

J Biol Chem 2018 08 3;293(34):13204-13213. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

From the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15261,

The pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex (PDHc) connects glycolysis to the tricarboxylic acid cycle by producing acetyl-CoA via the decarboxylation of pyruvate. Because of its pivotal role in glucose metabolism, this complex is closely regulated in mammals by reversible phosphorylation, the modulation of which is of interest in treating cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Mutations such as that leading to the αV138M variant in pyruvate dehydrogenase, the pyruvate-decarboxylating PDHc E1 component, can result in PDHc deficiency, an inborn error of metabolism that results in an array of symptoms such as lactic acidosis, progressive cognitive and neuromuscular deficits, and even death in infancy or childhood.

Simultaneous Measurement of Superoxide/Hydrogen Peroxide and NADH Production by Flavin-containing Mitochondrial Dehydrogenases.

J Vis Exp 2018 02 24(132). Epub 2018 Feb 24.

Department of Biochemistry, Memorial University of Newfoundland.

It has been reported that mitochondria can contain up to 12 enzymatic sources of reactive oxygen species (ROS). A majority of these sites include flavin-dependent respiratory complexes and dehydrogenases that produce a mixture of superoxide (O2) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Accurate quantification of the ROS-producing potential of individual sites in isolated mitochondria can be challenging due to the presence of antioxidant defense systems and side reactions that also form O2/H2O2.
