Nutrition Disorders: Disorders caused by nutritional imbalance, either overnutrition or undernutrition.Deficiency Diseases: A condition produced by dietary or metabolic deficiency. The term includes all diseases caused by an insufficient supply of essential nutrients, i.e., protein (or amino acids), vitamins, and minerals. It also includes an inadequacy of calories. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)Malnutrition: An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from insufficient intake of nutrients to meet normal physiological requirement.Thiamine Deficiency: A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)Dictionaries, MedicalDictionaries as Topic: Lists of words, usually in alphabetical order, giving information about form, pronunciation, etymology, grammar, and meaning.Protein Deficiency: A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of proteins in the diet, characterized by adaptive enzyme changes in the liver, increase in amino acid synthetases, and diminution of urea formation, thus conserving nitrogen and reducing its loss in the urine. Growth, immune response, repair, and production of enzymes and hormones are all impaired in severe protein deficiency. Protein deficiency may also arise in the face of adequate protein intake if the protein is of poor quality (i.e., the content of one or more amino acids is inadequate and thus becomes the limiting factor in protein utilization). (From Merck Manual, 16th ed; Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p406)Anemia, Iron-Deficiency: Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value. The erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased.Nutritional Physiological Phenomena: The processes and properties of living organisms by which they take in and balance the use of nutritive materials for energy, heat production, or building material for the growth, maintenance, or repair of tissues and the nutritive properties of FOOD.Nutritional Status: State of the body in relation to the consumption and utilization of nutrients.Diet: Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal.Choline Kinase: An enzyme that is active in the first step of choline phosphoglyceride (lecithin) biosynthesis by catalyzing the phosphorylation of choline to phosphorylcholine in the presence of ATP. Ethanolamine and its methyl and ethyl derivatives can also act as acceptors. EC 22.214.171.124.Fatty Liver: Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells resulting in a yellow-colored liver. The abnormal lipid accumulation is usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES, either as a single large droplet or multiple small droplets. Fatty liver is caused by an imbalance in the metabolism of FATTY ACIDS.Liver Diseases: Pathological processes of the LIVER.Liver: A large lobed glandular organ in the abdomen of vertebrates that is responsible for detoxification, metabolism, synthesis and storage of various substances.Fatty Liver, Alcoholic: Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells that is due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. The fatty changes in the alcoholic fatty liver may be reversible, depending on the amounts of TRIGLYCERIDES accumulated.Herbicides: Pesticides used to destroy unwanted vegetation, especially various types of weeds, grasses (POACEAE), and woody plants. Some plants develop HERBICIDE RESISTANCE.Liver Cirrhosis: Liver disease in which the normal microcirculation, the gross vascular anatomy, and the hepatic architecture have been variably destroyed and altered with fibrous septa surrounding regenerated or regenerating parenchymal nodules.3-Phosphoshikimate 1-Carboxyvinyltransferase: An enzyme of the shikimate pathway of AROMATIC AMINO ACID biosynthesis, it generates 5-enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate and ORTHOPHOSPHATE from PHOSPHOENOLPYRUVATE and shikimate-3-phosphate. The shikimate pathway is present in BACTERIA and PLANTS but not in MAMMALS.Alanine Transaminase: An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to pyruvate and L-glutamate. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC 126.96.36.199.Keratin-18: A type I keratin found associated with KERATIN-8 in simple, or predominately single layered, internal epithelia.Choline Deficiency: A condition produced by a deficiency of CHOLINE in animals. Choline is known as a lipotropic agent because it has been shown to promote the transport of excess fat from the liver under certain conditions in laboratory animals. Combined deficiency of choline (included in the B vitamin complex) and all other methyl group donors causes liver cirrhosis in some animals. Unlike compounds normally considered as vitamins, choline does not serve as a cofactor in enzymatic reactions. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)Mesenchymal Stromal Cells: Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS.

Different frequencies and patterns of beta-catenin mutations in hepatocellular carcinomas induced by N-nitrosodiethylamine and a choline-deficient L-amino acid-defined diet in rats. (1/288)To allow a study of beta-catenin mutations in hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) induced by exogenous and endogenous carcinogens, we induced tumors in male Fischer 344 rats with N-nitrosodiethylamine and a choline-deficient L-amino acid-defined diet. Administration of the former was followed by partial hepatectomy with colchicine to induce cell cycle disturbance and a selection pressure regimen (K. Ohashi et al., Cancer Res., 56: 3474-3479, 1996; M. Tsutsumi et al., Jpn. J. Cancer Res., 87: 5-9, 1996). HCCs were obtained after 42 weeks. With continuous choline-deficient L-amino acid-defined feeding, tumors were sampled after 75 weeks. Total RNA was extracted from individual lesions and mutations in the glycogen synthase kinase-3beta phosphorylation consensus motif of beta-catenin were investigated by reverse transcriptase-PCR-single-strand conformation polymorphism analysis followed by nucleotide sequencing. Changes were detected in 5 of 11 HCCs induced by the exogenous carcinogen. The observed shifts of C:G-->G:C or C:G-->A:T at codon 33 and G:C-->T:A transversions at codon 34 were associated with beta-catenin protein accumulation and confirmed by Western blot analysis. Only 2 of 15 HCCs induced in the endogenous carcinogenesis regimen demonstrated mutations, those being transitions of C:G-->T:A at codon 41 without amino acid alteration. These results suggest that different genetic pathways underlie exogenous and endogenous liver carcinogenesis in rats. (+info)
Single versus multiple deficiencies of methionine, zinc, riboflavin, vitamin B-6 and choline elicit surprising growth responses in young chicks. (2/288)A soy-protein isolate diet that was deficient in methionine (Met), zinc (Zn), riboflavin, vitamin B-6 and choline for chick growth (Assay 1) was used to study individual or multiple deficiencies of several of these nutrients. In all cases, adding all three deficient nutrients together resulted in growth responses that were superior to those resulting from supplementation with any pairs of deficient nutrients. In Assay 2, single addition of Zn but not of methionine or riboflavin produced a growth response, but the combination of either Zn and Met or Zn and riboflavin resulted in growth responses that were greater than the response elicited by Zn alone. Assay 3 involved individual or multiple deficiencies of choline, riboflavin and vitamin B-6, and individual additions suggested that choline was first limiting. Choline + riboflavin supplementation, however, produced marked growth and gain:food responses that were far greater than those resulting from supplemental choline or riboflavin alone. Moreover, the growth response to a combination of choline + pyridoxine (PN) was also greater than that obtained from any of the three nutrients fed alone; even PN + riboflavin (in the absence of choline) produced responses greater than those observed with the unsupplemented negative-control diet. In Assay 4, chicks responded to individual additions of riboflavin, PN or Met, and in Assay 5, to either riboflavin or PN; all two-way combinations resulted in growth rates that were far greater than those occurring with any single addition. The data from these experiments show that unlike the situation with three deficient amino acids, the expected responses to first-, second- and third-limiting B-vitamins or deficient vitamins combined with deficient levels of Zn or Met do not follow the expected pattern of response to first-, further response to first- and second- and an even further response to first-, second- and third-limiting nutrients.

CYP2E1 and CYP4A as microsomal catalysts of lipid peroxides in murine nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. (3/288)Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and alcoholic liver disease have similar pathological features. Because CYP2E1 plays a key role in alcoholic liver disease with its ability to stimulate lipid peroxidation, we tested the proposal that CYP2E1 could also be a factor in the development of NASH. In a dietary model - mice fed a methionine- and choline-deficient (MCD) diet - liver injury was associated with both induction of CYP2E1 and a 100-fold increase in hepatic content of lipid peroxides. Microsomal NADPH-dependent lipid oxidases contributed to the formation of these lipid peroxides, and in vitro inhibition studies demonstrated that CYP2E1 was the major catalyst. To further define the role of CYP2E1 as an initiator of oxidative stress in NASH, Cyp2e1(-/-)mice were administered the MCD diet. CYP2E1 deficiency neither prevented the development of NASH nor abrogated the increased microsomal NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation, indicating the operation of a non-CYP2E1 peroxidase pathway. In Cyp2e1(-/-) mice with NASH (but not in wild-type mice), CYP4A10 and CYP4A14 were upregulated. Furthermore, hepatic microsomal lipid peroxidation was substantially inhibited by anti-mouse CYP4A10 antibody in vitro. These results show that experimental NASH is strongly associated with hepatic microsomal lipid peroxidation. CYP2E1, the main enzyme associated with that process in wild-type mice, is not unique among P450 proteins in catalyzing peroxidation of endogenous lipids. We have now identified CYP4A enzymes as alternative initiators of oxidative stress in the liver. (+info)
Choline supplementation inhibits diethanolamine-induced morphological transformation in syrian hamster embryo cells: evidence for a carcinogenic mechanism. (4/288)DEA, an amino alcohol, and its fatty acid condensates are widely used in commerce. DEA is hepatocarcinogenic in mice, but shows no evidence of mutagenicity or clastogenicity in a standard testing battery. However, it increased the number of morphologically transformed colonies in the Syrian hamster embryo (SHE) cell morphologic transformation assay. The goal of this work was to test the hypothesis that DEA treatment causes morphologic transformation by a mechanism involving altered cellular choline homeostasis. As a first step, the ability of DEA to disrupt the uptake and intracellular utilization of choline was characterized. SHE cells were cultured in medium containing DEA (500 microg/ml), and (33)P-phosphorus or (14)C-choline was used to label phospholipid pools. After 48 h, SHE cells were harvested, lipids were extracted, and radioactive phospholipids were quantified by autoradiography after thin layer chromatographic separation. In control cells, phosphatidylcholine (PC) was the major phospholipid, accounting for 43 +/- 1% of total phospholipid synthesis. However, with DEA treatment, PC was reduced to 14 +/- 2% of total radioactive phospholipids. DEA inhibited choline uptake into SHE cells at concentrations > or = 50 microg /ml, reaching a maximum 80% inhibition at 250-500 microg/ml. The concentration dependence of the inhibition of PC synthesis by DEA (0, 10, 50, 100, 250, and 500 microg/ml) was determined in SHE cells cultured over a 7-day period under the conditions of the transformation assay and in the presence or absence of excess choline (30 mM). DEA treatment decreased PC synthesis at concentrations > or = 100 microg/ml, reaching a maximum 60% reduction at 500 microg/ml. However, PC synthesis was unaffected when DEA-treated cells were cultured with excess choline. Under 7-day culture conditions, (14)C-DEA was incorporated into SHE lipids, and this perturbation was also inhibited by choline supplementation. Finally, DEA (10-500 microg/ml) transformed SHE cells in a concentration-dependent manner, whereas with choline supplementation, no morphologic transformation was observed. Thus, DEA disrupts intracellular choline homeostasis by inhibiting choline uptake and altering phospholipid synthesis. However, excess choline blocks these biochemical effects and inhibits cell transformation, suggesting a relationship between the two responses. Overall, the results provide a plausible mechanism to explain the morphologic transformation observed with DEA and suggest that the carcinogenic effects of DEA may be caused by intracellular choline deficiency.

Acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis (massive necrosis) with fat necrosis induced in mice by DL-ethionine fed with a choline-deficient diet. (5/288)Female, albino mice were fed a choline-deficient diet containing 0.5% DL-ethionine. All animals died within 5 days due to the development of an acute hemorrhagic pancreatis with fat necrosis throughout the peritoneal cavity. The apancreatitis was characterized by a massive necrosis of the exocrine parenchyma with intense hemorrhage and inflammatory reaction of the stroma. The sequence of histologic and ultrastructural alterations occurring in the acinar cells of the pancreas were studied in mice fed the diet for 1, 2, and 3 days. Major findings consited of accumulation of zymogen granules, vacuolation due to foci of cytoplasmic degradation, and alterations in the morphology of the zymogen granules. The pancreatitis appears to be due to intraparenchymal activation of zymogens, resulting from a synergistic action of choline deficiency with the basic toxicity of ethionine toward the acinar cells of the pancreas. The experimental model simulates closely the acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis with fat necrosis occurring in humans and may prove useful for exploring the pathogenesis of this condition. (+info)
Starvation impairs antioxidant defense in fatty livers of rats fed a choline-deficient diet. (6/288)Although fatty liver (FL) is considered an innocuous condition, the frequent incidence of graft failure when FL are transplanted has renewed interest in the intracellular disorders causative of or consequent to fatty degeneration. Oxidative stress and nutritional status modulate the tolerance to reperfusion injury in control livers (CL), but very little is known in the case of FL. This study was designed to compare the oxidative balance in CL and FL from fed and food-deprived rats. Serum and liver samples were collected from fed and starved (18 h) rats with CL or FL induced by a choline-deficient diet. Hepatic injury was assessed by transaminase activities and histology. The hepatic concentrations of glutathione (GSH), vitamin C, alpha-tocopherol, thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) and protein carbonyls (PC) were measured. Fed rats with FL had significantly greater TBARS and lower alpha-tocopherol and vitamin C levels than those with CL, whereas GSH and PC concentrations were not affected. Starvation impaired the oxidative balance in both groups. However, compared with the other groups, FL from food-deprived rats generally had the lowest hepatic concentrations of alpha-tocopherol, vitamin C and GSH. Unlike in CL, protein oxidation occurred in FL. These data indicate that fatty liver induced by consumption of a choline-deficient diet is associated with a lower level of antioxidants, which results in lipid peroxidation. Starvation further affects these alterations and extends the damage to proteins. In conclusion, steatosis and starvation may act synergistically on the depletion of antioxidants, predisposing fatty livers to a reduced tolerance to oxidative injury. (+info)
Increased uracil misincorporation in lymphocytes from folate-deficient rats. (7/288)The development of certain human cancers has been linked with inadequate intake of folates. The effects of folate deficiency in vivo on DNA stability (strand breakage, misincorporated uracil and oxidative base damage) in lymphocytes isolated from rats fed a diet deficient in folic acid was determined. Because the metabolic pathways of folate and other methyl donors are closely coupled, the effects of methionine and choline deficiency alone or in combination with folate deficiency were determined. Feeding male Hooded Lister rats a folate-free diet for 10 weeks created a moderate folate deficiency (25-50% (approx.) decrease in plasma, red blood cell and hepatic folate concentrations (P < 0.05) and a 20% rise in plasma homocysteine (P < 0.05)). Lymphocyte DNA strand breakage was increased successively in all groups after 4 weeks and 8 weeks on the diet (50-100% (approx.) after 8 weeks). Only low folate specifically and progressively induced uracil misincorporation throughout the study (100% (approx.) after 8 weeks). Neither folate deficiency nor choline/methionine deficiency altered oxidative DNA base damage. In summary, moderate folate deficiency in vivo is associated with a decrease in DNA stability, measured as increased DNA strand breakage and misincorporated uracil. (+info)
Effect of choline deficiency on utilization of labeled precursors of choline and turnover of choline in the liver of mature Japanese quail. (8/288)Studies were conducted to determine the effect of choline deficiency on utilization of various labeled precursors of choline and rate of choline biosynthesis in mature Japanese quail. A deficiency of dietary choline did not change the in vivo incorporation of 14C-label from (1,2-14C) ETHANOLAMINE, N, N-dimethyl (1,2-14C) ethanolamine, and L-(methyl-14C) methionine into liver phosphatidylcholine (PC) or total phospholipids. Incorporation of radioactivity from (14C) serine into liver PC was increased, but the difference was not significant (PGREATER THAN3.35). In vitro studies confirmed these observations as there were no differences in liver microsomal methyltransferase activities, expressed as the incorporation of methyl-14C from labeled S-adenosylmethionine into microsomal PC from quail fed a purified diet with with or without choline. Rats appeared to incorporate an increased amount of 14C into PC when fed a diet devoid of choline, but the differences were not significant. There were differences in methyltransferase activities among species, and quail had the lowest activity. A slower turnover of choline was found in quail liver (t1/2=7.5 hours) as compared with that of hen liver (t1/2=2.0 hours). The methyltransferase responsible for the first methylation of phosphatidyl-ethanolamine from quail liver appears to differ from most other biosynthetic enzymes in that it occurs in liver and catalyzes the reaction at a slow rate but cannot adapt to exogenous choline supply to meet the requirements for normal bodily functions in quail.

Chris Masterjohn has written extensively about choline deficiency and its relationship to fatty liver disease which affects as many as 100 million Americans and is often attributed to excess alcohol and sugar consumption by conventional practitioners. After a review of the literature, Masterjohn concludes that choline deficiency plays a role in virtually every type of diet-induced fatty liver model, and that adequate dietary choline is essential for proper liver function. He also suggests that high consumption of dietary fat, including saturated fats, increases the amount of choline required to prevent the accumulation of fat in the liver. (6 ...
Question: NASH is a benign liver disease and will progress, if untreated, into fibrosis/cirrhosis and potentially into hepatocellular cancer. Human cell therapy approaches for the treatment of NASH have not been addressed yet. Therefore, the present work aimed at establishing an animal model to evaluate the feasibility of stem cell-derived hepatocytes in NASH. Methods: Immundeficient Pfp/Rag2-/- mice were fed with a methionine-choline-deficient diet (MCD diet) for up to 5 weeks. Alanine-aminotransferase ...
Development of a novel mouse model of hepatocellular carcinoma with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis using a high-fat, choline...
The MCD model is one of the best-known NASH animal models [19, 20]. Choline deficiency causes Cyp2E1 upregulation with increased reactive oxygen species formation, lipid peroxidation, and mitochondrial dysfunction ; methionine deficiency exacerbates hepatic injury associated with oxidative and endoplasmic reticulum stress . Although MCD mice develop steatohepatitis, fibrosis, and carcinogenesis, both body weight and insulin resistance tend to decrease because of reduced food intake and increased basal metabolism. The MCD model thus reflects a different pathophysiology than human NASH with respect to metabolic syndrome.. Few reported NASH-HCC models have fully incorporated all the clinical changes associated with that disease [28-30]. In our HFCD + DEN model, tumor initiation is basically dependent on a chemical carcinogen, which is artificial compared with the above spontaneous HCC models. Thus, the HFCD + DEN model cannot assess the initiation step of NASH-HCC. However, the time to HCC ...
Choline Info! In addition to fatty liver, choline deficiency causes abnormal kidney function, infertility, growth impairment, bone abnormalities, reduced protection of blood cells and hypertension, among other problems. Use of choline as a dietary supplement can lead to improved cardiovascular health, liver and reproductive functions. Choline has been shown to improve performance in endurance sports such as running and swimming. Choline is known to play a role in brain development, learning and memory.. ...

However, it is unclear whether 1,25-VD3 plays a role in NASH induced by a choline-deficient (CD) diet. In this study, we investigated the roles of 1,25-VD3 in the development and progression of NASH in rats induced by a CD diet.Wistar rats with NASH induced by a CD diet were subject ...
Phospholipids are major constituents of all cell membranes," says Trisha Sugarek MacDonald, BS MS, senior director of research and development and national educator for Bluebonnet. "Phosphatidycholine in particular is important for brain health since it is a precursor for the essential nutrient choline.". Phosphatidylserine modulates the fluidity of neuronal cell membranes, which is critical to the brain cells ability to send and receive chemical communications, Sugarek MacDonald adds. It "has demonstrated some usefulness in improving learning, memory and cognitive function by enabling brain cells to metabolize glucose and release/bind with neurotransmitters more effectively.". Sugarek MacDonald also considers choline an optimal supplement for the aging brain. Choline is the newest nutrient to receive a Daily Value (i.e. 550 mg/daily) from the FDA. "Choline helps with the communication system for cells within the brain and the rest of the body. [It] may also support the brain during aging and ...

The protein kinase activity of isolated plasma membranes from the livers of rats treated with three promoting regimens was examined using both exogenous proteins and endogenous plasma membrane proteins as substrates. Male rats first received either an initiating dose (30 mg/kg) of the hepatocarcinogen diethylnitrosamine or the 0.9% NaCl solution vehicle by i.p. injection at 18 h following partial hepatectomy. Ten days later, the three promoting regimens were begun. These consisted of 10 weeks of treatment with either (a) a choline-deficient (CD) diet, (b) a choline-supplemented (CS) diet containing 0.06% phenobarbital (PHB) (CS plus PHB), or (c) a CD diet containing 0.06% PHB (CD plus PHB). In addition, two other groups of rats received either (a) a CS diet containing 2% di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) (CS plus DEHP) or (b) a CD diet containing 2% DEHP (CD plus DEHP). DEHP is a widely used plasticizer and environmental contaminant which we have shown previously inhibits the development of ...
Dysregulation of lipid and amino acid metabolism precedes islet autoimmunity in children who later progress to type 1 diabetes ...
In this longitudinal study, we compared serum metabolome in children who, during follow up, progressed to type 1 diabetes-associated autoimmunity and, further, to clinical diabetes (progressors) or who remained permanently healthy and autoantibody negative. Our study strongly suggests that metabolic dysregulation precedes overt autoimmunity in type 1 diabetes.. We found that the children who developed type 1 diabetes have reduced serum levels of succinic acid and PC at birth and reduced levels of multiple phospholipids and triglycerides throughout the follow up. As PC is a major source of choline in the body, our data suggest that the progressors are choline-deficient since birth. Besides being an important epigenetic regulator (17), choline also controls the secretion of triglyceride-rich very low-density lipoprotein particles. Choline deficiency leads to lower serum triglyceride levels and their increased accumulation in liver (18). This is consistent with our observation that during infancy ...
Choline is a basic constituent of lecithin that is found in many plants and animal organs. It is important as a precursor of acetylcholine, as a methyl donor in various metabolic processes, and in lipid metabolism. Choline is now considered to be an essential vitamin. While animals can synthesize small amounts (by converting phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine), it must be consumed in the diet to maintain health. Required levels are between 425 mg/day (female) and 550 mg/day (male). Milk, eggs, liver and peanuts are especially rich in choline. Most choline is found in phospholipids, namely phosphatidylcholine or lecithin. Choline can be oxidized to form betaine, which is a methyl source for many reactions (i.e. conversion of homocysteine e to methionine). Lack of sufficient amounts of choline in the diet can lead to a fatty liver condition and general liver damage. This arises from the lack of VLDL, which is necessary to transport fats away from the liver. Choline deficiency also ...

Super paramagnetic iron oxide MRI shows defective Kupffer cell uptake function in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease | Gut
Background The pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is incompletely understood. Kupffer cells (KCs), phagocytic liver-resident macrophages, provide a protective barrier against egress of endotoxin from the portal to the systemic circulation. It is not known if KC phagocytic function is impaired in NAFLD. Super-paramagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) magnetic resonance imaging is a comparative technology dependent on KC phagocytic function.. Objective To evaluate KC uptake function, in patients and experimental animals with NAFLD, using SPIO.. Methods Abdominal CT and histological examination of liver biopsy specimens were used to estimate the degree of steatosis in patients with NAFLD and controls with chronic hepatitis C. SPIO-MRI was then performed in all patients. Normal rats fed a methionine-choline-deficient diet to induce non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), the more severe stage of NAFLD, and obese, insulin resistant, Zucker fa/fa rats with steatohepatitis, were also studied ...

N2 - Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a progressive form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease that can develop into cirrhosis, hepatic failure, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Although several metabolic pathways are disrupted and endogenous metabolites may change in NASH, the alterations in serum metabolites during NASH development remain unclear. To gain insight into the disease mechanism, serum metabolite changes were assessed using metabolomics with ultraperformance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry and a conventional mouse NASH model induced by a methionine- and choline-deficient (MCD) diet. Significant decreases in serum palmitoyl-, stearoyl-, and ...
Lifestyle factors and chronic pathologic states are important contributors to interindividual variability in susceptibility to xenobiotic-induced toxicity. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an increasingly prevalent condition that can dramatically affect chemical metabolism. We examined the effect of NAFLD on toxicokinetics of tetrachloroethylene (PERC), a ubiquitous environmental contaminant that requires metabolic activation to induce adverse health effects. Mice (C57Bl/6J, male) were fed a low-fat diet (LFD), high-fat diet (HFD), or methionine/folate/choline-deficient diet (MCD) to model a healthy liver, steatosis, or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), respectively. After 8 weeks, mice were orally administered a single dose of PERC (300 mg/kg) or vehicle (aqueous Alkamuls-EL620) and euthanized at various time points (1-36 hours). Levels of PERC and its metabolites were measured in blood/serum, liver, and fat. Effects of diets on liver gene expression and tissue:air partition ...

PY - 2015/12/1. Y1 - 2015/12/1. N2 - With the obesity epidemic, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has become a public health problem with increasing prevalence. The mechanism of disease progression remains obscure and effective therapy is lacking. Therefore, there is a need to understand the pathogenic mechanisms responsible for disease development and progression in order to develop innovative therapies. To accomplish this goal, experimental animal models that recapitulate the human disease are necessary, especially, since causative mechanistic studies of NAFLD are more difficult or unethical to perform in humans. A large number of studies regarding the pathophysiology and treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) have been undertaken in mice to model human NAFLD and NASH. This review discusses ...

Choline is a crucial nutrient that contributes to several biological functions and serves as a precursor molecule to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Choline is integral to the development and function of the central nervous system, and its availability during the prenatal period has lasting and protective effects on neural function. Researchers have found that prenatal choline supplementation in the rat enhances learning and memory processes later in life, especially those involving spatial memory. Researchers have also demonstrated that choline protects against a number of physical stressors to the neural environment, such as prenatal alcohol exposure, induced seizures, and chronic stress-induced exposure to corticosteroids. Compared to the study of these types of physical stressors, relatively little research has examined the influence of prenatal choline exposure on psychological stress later in life. In an attempt to contribute to this field, the present study examined the effects of prenatal

Little is known about the biological effect of folate in the protection against mitochondrial (mt) oxidative decay. The objective of the present study was to examine the consequence of folate deprivation on mt oxidative degeneration, and the mechanistic link underlying the relationship. Male Wistar rats were fed with an amino acid-defined diet containing either 8 (control) or 0 (folate-deficient, FD) mg folic acid/kg diet. After a 4-week FD feeding period, significant elevation in oxidative stress was observed inside the liver mitochondria with a 77 % decrease in mt folate level (P , 0·001), a 28 % reduction in glutathione peroxidase activity (P = 0·0333), a 1·2-fold increase of mt protein carbonyls (P = 0·0278) and an accumulated 4834 bp large-scale deletion in mtDNA. The elicited oxidative injuries in FD liver mitochondria were associated with 30 % reduction of cytochrome c oxidase (CcOX) activity (P = 0·0264). The defective CcOX activity in FD hepatocytes coincided with mt membrane ...
Diethanolamine (DEA) is a common ingredient of personal care products. Dermal administration of DEA diminishes hepatic stores of the essential nutrient choline and alters brain development.

PtdCho is a major component of eukaryotic but not prokaryotic membranes. We demonstrate for the first time that a bacterium can inhibit the de novo synthesis of PtdCho in human cells. Significantly, this inhibition triggers apoptosis. Although inhibition of PtdCho biosynthesis initiates apoptosis in cells exposed to xenobiotics (13-15, 17, 28), in mutant cells with genetic CCT dysfunction (40), or in nutritional choline deprivation (18, 31), the response of human cells to pneumococcus is the first case where this mechanism plays a critical role in pathogenesis.. In the brain, PtdCho has an additional role as a precursor for the biosynthesis of the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It is unlikely that acetylcholine deprivation accounts for the observed pneumococcal-induced neuronal cell death because a low level of acetylcholine is not known to be a death signal and PtdCho serves as a reservoir of choline for acetylcholine biosynthesis under conditions of nutritional choline deprivation ...

Accumulation of lipid droplets and inflammatory cell infiltration is the hallmark of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The roles of noncoding RNAs in NASH are less known. We aim to elucidate the function of miR-141/200c in diet-induced NASH. WT and miR-141/200c-/- mice were fed a methionine and choline deficient (MCD) diet for 2 weeks to assess markers of steatosis, liver injury, and inflammation. Hepatic miR-141 and miR-200c RNA levels were highly induced in human patients with NASH fatty liver and in WT MCD mice. miR-141/200c-/- MCD mice had reduced liver weights and triglyceride (TG) levels, which was associated with increased microsomal TG transfer protein (MTTP) and PPARα but reduced SREBP1c and FAS expression. Inflammation was attenuated and F4/80 macrophage activation was suppressed in miR-141/200c-/- mice, as evidenced by decreased serum aminotransferases and IL-6 and reduced hepatic proinflammatory, neutrophil, and profibrotic genes. Treatment with LPS in BM-derived macrophages ...
Pregnant women may have added incentive to bulk up on broccoli and eggs: More choline during pregnancy can reduce a fetus response to stress and could cut a childs chances of developing hypertension and diabetes later in life. In a 12-week study led by Marie Caudill, professor of nutritional sciences, pregnant women who consumed approximately double the recommended 450-mg daily intake of choline in their third trimester had babies with 33 percent lower concentrations of cortisol-the hormone produced in response to stress that also increases blood sugar-compared with a control group of pregnant mothers taking the recommended daily amount. Choline is a major supplier of methyl (CH3) groups, which can attach to targeted regions of the genome and affect the level of a genes expression. Caudill credits the extra choline during pregnancy with easing the babys response to stress through changes in the methylation and expression patterns of the genes that regulate cortisol, which would be expected ...
The study - published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition - points towards correlation between memory and dietary choline - found in such as saltwater fish, eggs, liver, chicken, milk and certain legumes, including soy and kidney beans - after researchers found that people with high intakes of choline performed better on memory tests, and were less likely to show brain changes associated with dementia. The researchers, led by senior researcher Rhoda Au of Boston University School of Medicine, USA, said that their results do not mean that choline is the answer to staving off Alzheimers disease, but noted that the findings do add to evidence that nutrition plays a role in the aging of the brain. However, Au cautioned against looking to any one nutrient as a magic bullet against dementia. Diet-dementia link.

When it comes to adding choline to your diet, there is not a set way that is "right". You must figure out what is best for your needs and desires, but it is a good idea to ensure you have enough at all times. You are right to consider choline an important part of your diet. It is important that you make sure you are getting enough because it is the precursor for a specific brain chemical called acetylcholine, which helps for many aspects of brain health.. If you are just getting started with brain enhancement, you need to know that nutrition is the first key for getting a more improved cognitive ability. Having the right nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, can be a bigger boost for your brain than some of the latest and greatest drugs. That is why you need to get more choline into your diet. One way to do that is through eggs, which is the simplest and probably most delicious way that youll be able to get all of the choline that you need. If you dont feel comfortable eating that many ...

Carnitine and choline supplementation with exercise alter carnitine profiles, biochemical markers of fat metabolism and serum leptin concentration in healthy wo
Your memory might be sharper if your diet contains lots of choline - a micronutrient found in some fatty foods, including egg yolks. A new study from Boston University School of Medicine suggests that adults whose choline intake was highest did better on memory tests than those whose intake was lowest; they were also less likely to have brain changes linked to dementia. The investigators reviewed data from 1,400 adults ages 36 to 83 who answered questions about their diets between 1991 and 1995. Later, between 1998 and 2001, the participants underwent MRI brain scans and tests of memory and other cognitive abilities. The differences seen between those with high and low choline consumption were small, but the studys lead author said the data suggested that participants with lower choline intakes were more likely to be on a "pathway" to mental decline than those with higher intakes. Another clue: choline is a precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in memory and ...

NEW STUDY INDICATES THAT PEOPLE MAY NEED MORE DIETARY CHOLINE THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT Eggs One of the Best Sources of the Nutrient Washington, D.C. (May 23, 2007) A new study published in the May issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that the current recommended Adequate Intake (AI) for choline may, in fact, be inadequate for some people.  Choline is an essential nutrient for normal functioning of all cells, including those involved with liver metabolism, brain and nerve function, memory, and the transportation of nutrients throughout the body. In this depletion-repletion study, 57 adult subjects (26 men, 16 premenopausal women and 15 postmenopausal women) were fed a diet containing 550 mg of choline for 10 days, then fed less than 50 mg a day of choline for up to 42 days. When deprived of the nutrient, 77 percent of men, 80 percent of postmenopausal women and 44 percent of premenopausal women developed fatty liver or muscle damage. Six men (23 percent) developed these ...
Improved nonalcoholic steatohepatitis after 48 weeks of treatment with the PPAR-y ligand rosiglitazone
However, if improvement in NASH should occur with effective intervention, how this is best measured presently is not known because the timing and nature of improvement in the histologic features need further evaluation. Treatment with rosiglitazone was associated with several histologic findings interpreted as improvement or resolution of NASH. Some of the observations have not been described previously. These included shifts in parenchymal localization of steatosis and changes in the relative amounts of portal inflammation compared with intra-acinar inflammation. These changed such that many posttreatment biopsies no longer showed characteristic morphology of NASH. Specifically, treatment was associated with a shift of inflammation from being predominantly lobular to more portal based. Whether this is a feature of improvement in NASH as it is in other forms of liver injury is not known, but emphasis on the distribution of inflammation before and after treatment may deserve further attention. ...
Treating a liver disease called NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis), which affects 10 to 15 percent of obese individuals with type-2 diabetes worldwide, is difficult. But now scientists believe they have found a pharmacologic approach that may inhibit NASH, and thus stop deadly conditions that result from NASH such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.

DIGITAL.CSIC: G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 plays a role in the development of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
Introduction]: Insulin resistance (IR) and obesity are major health problems and important risk factors for the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a disease spectrum that may include hepatic steatosis, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis, and cirrhosis. G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2), first identified as a regulator of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), has been described to play a relevant role in the development of IR and obesity in vivo. However, the effect of GRK2 in the development of NASH had not been addressed so far. Since the deletion of GRK2 prevents excessive body weight gain, we fed WT and GRK2 global hemizygous mice (GRK2+/-) with a methionine and choline-deficient diet (MCD), a well stablished model of NASH that is independent of fat mass accretion. [Results]: Even though the MCD diet induced similar metabolic alterations and a comparable elevation in plasma transaminase activity in WT and GRK2+/- mice, other negative effects of the MCD were ...

What is nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)? Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is liver inflammation caused by a buildup of fat in the liver. NASH is part of a group of liver diseases, known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, in which fat builds up in the liver and sometimes causes liver damage that gets worse over time (progressive liver damage).Although the cause is not known, NASH seems to

Treatment with CardioAid and lunasin was associated with a significant decrease in the CD4/CD8 ratio and an increase in CD4+CD25+ lymphocytes. A decrease in interleukin 1-alpha serum levels and an increase in transforming growth factor beta serum levels were noted. These were associated with alleviation of liver damage as indicated by a significant decrease in liver enzymes and improvement in the histological nonalcoholic fatty liver disease activity score (NAS). Decreases in both serum triglyceride and serum glucose levels were observed in treated mice. A decrease in total body fat measured by EchoMRI was also observed in treated mice.. CONCLUSIONS ...
Our results demonstrate that incubating cultured mouse hepatocytes with MCD medium causes cellular steatosis and increased release of ALT. The MCD medium-induced increases in triglyceride formation and ALT release were accompanied by the activation of PI3-kinase and markedly increased OPN expression. An inhibitor of PI3-kinase prevented the increases in OPN expression, cellular steatosis, and ALT release. Antibodies to OPN or its receptor blunted the increase in ALT release but had no effect on steatosis induced by the MCD medium. Together, these findings indicate that the activation of PI3-kinase plays an important role in the development of hepatocyte steatosis and induction of OPN expression in cultured hepatocytes exposed to MCD medium. OPN, in turn, is involved in signaling increased ALT release by hepatocytes. As has been shown elsewhere (30), OPN expression is involved in fibrogenesis in the MCD diet model of NASH. OPN, therefore, is potentially involved in progression from steatosis to ...

Aim: Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ (PPARγ) agonists have been shown to prevent hepatic fibrosis in rodents. We evaluated the therapeutic antifibrotic potential of the PPARγ agonist pioglitazone on established hepatic fibrosis.. Methods: Repeated injections of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4), a choline deficient diet, or bile duct ligation (BDL) were used to induce hepatic fibrosis in rats. Pioglitazone treatment was introduced at various time points. Therapeutic efficacy was assessed by comparison of the severity of hepatic fibrosis in pioglitazone treated versus untreated fibrotic controls.. Results: When introduced after two weeks of CCl4, pioglitazone reduced hepatic fibrosis, OH proline content, hepatic mRNA expression of collagen type I, and profibrotic genes, as well as the number of activated α smooth muscle actin positive hepatic stellate cells, compared with rats receiving CCl4 only, with no significant change in necroinflammation. When pioglitazone treatment was ...

"Choline, its potential role in Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, and t" by Jill L. Sherriff, Therese O'Sullivan et al.
Our understanding of the impact of poor hepatic choline/phosphatidylcholine availability in promoting the steatosis characteristic of human nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has recently advanced and possibly relates to phosphatidylcholine/phosphatidylethanolamine concentrations in various, membranes as well as cholesterol dysregulation. A role for choline/phosphatidylcholine availability in the progression of NAFLD to liver injury and serious hepatic consequences in some individuals requires further elucidation. There are many reasons for poor choline/phosphatidylcholine availability in the liver, including low intake, estrogen status, and genetic polymorphisms affecting, in particular, the pathway for hepatic de novo phosphatidylcholine synthesis. In addition to free choline, phosphatidylcholine has been identified as a substrate for trimethylamine production by certain intestinal bacteria, thereby reducing host choline bioavailability and providing an additional link to the increased risk of
Treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis with colestimide - Taniai - 2009 - Hepatology Research - Wiley Online Library
Aim: To clarify the usefulness of colestimide in patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) with hyperlipidemia.. Methods: In an open-label randomized controlled trial, 17 NASH patients with hyperlipidemia received colestimide (3 g/day) for 24 weeks. There were 21 control patients. All patients received lifestyle modification therapy. Efficacy was assessed based on metabolic profile, insulin resistance, transaminases, serum hepatic fibrosis markers, adipokine levels, visceral fat on computed tomography (CT), and the fatty liver grade on CT. NASH patients with moderate to severe steatosis by histology were also evaluated separately.. Results: Baseline clinical characteristics of the two groups were similar. Both groups experienced a significant decrease of BMI with no difference between them. However, visceral fat decreased significantly more in the colestimide group (P = 0.046). Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) showed a significantly greater decrease in the colestimide group compared with ...

United States Patent Office 3,475,177 Patented Oct. 28, 1969 3,475,177 CHOLINE COMPOSITION Lawrence R. Jones, Terre Haute, Ind, assignor to Cemmercial Solvents Corporation, New York, N.Y., a corporation of Maryland No Drawing. Filed Feb. 9, 1966, Ser. No. 526,067 Int. (:1. A23k 1/00 US. Cl. 992 6 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE This invention relates generally to improved choline compositions. In a particular aspect it relates to choline salt and fat compositions. Choline salts are useful components of animal feeds. They are particularly useful in poultry feeds having a high fat content, e.g. a poultry feed having a fat content of above about 10%. One of the nutritional functions of choline is concerned with the metabolism and transportation of fat. A choline salt intended for use in animal feeds is usually supplied to the feed manufacturer in the form of a choline feed supplement prepared by mixing the choline salt with one or more of the dry ingredients of the feed preparation to act as a ...
... is a vitamin supplement that is present in several forms, including phosphatidylcholine (PC). The medicinal effects of choline are presumed to be caused by phosphatidylcholine. PC is a major part of the membranes surrounding our cells. When PC is eaten, it is broken down into choline rather than being carried directly to the cell membranes. Choline acts like another commonly used supplement, SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), to provide the methyl groups used by the body in a number of chemical reactions, including the detoxification pathways of the liver. It is also used to make acetylcholine and dopamine, nerve chemicals essential for normal brain function. Choline may also aid in brain and liver function by assisting with the absorption of carnitine from the digestive tract. Carnitine is essential for mitochondrial function, ensuring the liver and brain have an adequate supply of energy.. ...

Lets start out with eggs nutrition and then well get to the calories in an egg. The protein in eggs is outstanding at 6.3 grams for one large egg. This egg protein is also quickly absorbed by the body (1.5 to 3 hours) and contains over 17 amino acids. Eggs score pretty high in vitamins D, A, Riboflavin and B12 . They are high in minerals as well with one egg providing 28% of the DRI of selenium and 18% of your daily iodine needs. There are approximately 78 calories in one egg.. Eggs are very high in choline. One large egg contains up to 35% of the Daily Recommended Intake suggestions. Choline is considered an essential nutrient. It was once thought the body manufactured all the choline it needed, but current research is proving we need additional choline supplementation to our standard western diet. Choline is a methyl donor, meaning it helps support methylation-one of the most basic processes of life. Building DNA, nerve signaling, and liver detoxification are just some of the bodys ...

Hepatocyte glutathione peroxidase-1 deficiency improves hepatic glucose metabolism and decreases steatohepatitis in mice
Aims/hypothesis: In obesity oxidative stress is thought to contribute to the development of insulin resistance, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and the progression to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Our aim was to examine the precise contributions of hepatocyte-derived H2O2 to liver pathophysiology. Methods: Glutathione peroxidase (GPX) 1 is an antioxidant enzyme that is abundant in the liver and converts H2O2 to water. We generated Gpx1lox/lox mice to conditionally delete Gpx1 in hepatocytes (Alb-Cre;Gpx1lox/lox) and characterised mice fed chow, high-fat or choline-deficient amino-acid-defined (CDAA) diets. Results: Chow-fed Alb-Cre;Gpx1lox/lox mice did not exhibit any alterations in body composition or energy expenditure, but had improved insulin sensitivity and reduced fasting blood glucose. This was accompanied by decreased gluconeogenic and increased glycolytic gene expression as well as increased hepatic glycogen. Hepatic insulin receptor Y1163/Y1163 phosphorylation and Akt Ser-473 ...
