Antioxidant treatment normalizes mitochondrial energetics and myocardial insulin sensitivity independently of changes in systemic metabolic homeostasis in a mouse model of the metabolic syndrome. J Mol Cell Cardiol. 2015;85:104-16 pubmed publisher
    ..Pharmacological ROS scavenging improves myocardial energy metabolism and insulin responsiveness in obesity and type 2 diabetes via direct effects that might be independent of changes in systemic metabolism. ..

    ..Hence, sustaining physiological levels of PGC-1? expression following POH, while preserving myocardial vascularity, does not prevent mitochondrial and contractile dysfunction. ..

    ..1±0.9, P=0.04; cPDPK1(+/-): 12.4±0.6 vs.15.9±1.2, P=0.04). These findings suggest that PDPK1 is required for exercise-induced cardiac hypertrophy but does not contribute to exercise-induced increases in mitochondrial function. ..

    ..Loss of Akt signaling disrupts gap junction protein, which might precipitate early contractile dysfunction prior to heart failure in the absence of myocardial remodeling, such as hypertrophy, fibrosis, or cell death. ..

    ..OPA1-elicited mitochondrial dysfunction activates an integrated stress response that locally induces muscle atrophy, but via secretion of FGF21 acts distally to modulate whole-body metabolism. ..
