How healthy are the various cooking methods? The answer depends on what you cook and how you cook it. If your idea of a healthy main course is blackened fish, crispy fried chicken, or caramelized ribs, youve probably never heard of advanced Glycated End Products (also known as advanced glycated end products).. Advanced glycated end products, which were discovered by Louis Maillard in 1912, are a class of chemical byproducts that result from the combination of protein and sugar (usually glucose) when food is cooked by excessive heat.1. Advanced glycated end products can also be formed by the body when too much refined sugar is eaten and elevated blood sugar levels are maintained for too long a time. And food manufacturers intentionally increase the number of advanced glycated end products in food, either by adding sugar or by browning food elements.. Advanced glycated end products arent to be confused with glycoproteins, even though they share the same building blocks. A glycoprotein forms when ...

Advanced Glycosylation End Products: Products derived from the nonenzymatic reaction of glucose and proteins in vivo that exhibit a yellow-brown pigmentation and an ability to participate in protein-protein cross-linking. These substances are involved in biological processes relating to protein turnover and it is believed that their excessive accumulation contributes to the chronic complications of diabetes mellitus.
This study aims to investigate the roles of the Notch-Hes1 pathway in the advanced glycation end product (AGE)-mediated differentiation of neural stem cells (NSCs). We prepared pLentiLox3.7 lentiviral vectors that express short hairpin RNA (shRNA) against Notch1 and transfected it into NSCs. Cell differentiation was analyzed under confocal laser-scanning microscopy. The percentage of neurons and astrocytes was quantified by normalizing the total number of TUJ1+ (Neuron-specific class III β-tubulin) and GFAP+ (Glial fibrillary acidic protein) cells to the total number of Hoechst 33342-labeled cell nuclei. The protein and gene expression of Notch-Hes1 pathway components was examined via western blot analysis and real-time PCR. After 1 week of incubation, we found that AGE-bovine serum albumin (BSA) (400 μg/mL) induced the astrocytic differentiation of cultured neurospheres and inhibited neuronal formation. The expression of Notch-Hes1 pathway components was upregulated in the cells in the AGE-BSA
Objective(s): To investigate the role of autophagy in advanced glycation end products (AGEs)-induced proliferation and migration in rat vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs).Materials and Methods: After culture, VSMCs were treated with 0, 1, 10, and 100 μg/ml concentrations of AGEs. Autophagy specific protein light chain 3 (LC3)-I/II was determined by western blotting, autophagosomes were observed with electron microscopy, cell proliferation was quantified using the methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium (MTT) assay, and cell migration was evaluated using Transwell migration and scratch assays. Results: Compared to the control group, the level of LC3- II/I in AGEs treatment group was up-regulated, and the number of autophagosomes was also increased. Furthermore, in concentration of 100 μg/ml AGEs, the extent of proliferation and migration was significantly increased compared to the control group. However, pretreating cells with autophagy inhibitor 3-MA could attenuate these effects.Conclusion: Our study

Clinical chemistry tests for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are currently unavailable. The aim of this study was to explore the diagnostic utility of proteotoxic biomarkers in plasma and urine, plasma protein glycation, oxidation, and nitration adducts, and related glycated, oxidized, and nitrated amino acids (free adducts), for the clinical diagnosis of ASD. Thirty-eight children with ASD (29 male, 9 female; age 7.6 ± 2.0 years) and 31 age-matched healthy controls (23 males, 8 females; 8.6 ± 2.0 years) were recruited for this study. Plasma protein glycation, oxidation, and nitration adducts and amino acid metabolome in plasma and urine were determined by stable isotopic dilution analysis liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Machine learning methods were then employed to explore and optimize combinations of analyte data for ASD diagnosis. We found that children with ASD had increased advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs), Nε-carboxymethyl-lysine (CML) and Nω-carboxymethylarginine (CMA),

The main findings of this study were that in patients with type 1 diabetes higher baseline plasma levels of AGEs are associated with incident fatal and nonfatal CVD as well as all-cause mortality, independently of traditional cardiovascular risk factors, but also of markers of renal and endothelial dysfunction, low-grade inflammation, and arterial stiffness. AGEs may thus constitute a specific target for treatment to prevent the excess CVD and mortality observed in patients with type 1 diabetes.. Our results are in agreement with studies that have shown positive associations between plasma levels of AGEs or Amadori products, specifically non-CML AGE (11), pentosidine (3) and Amadori-albumin (22), and microvascular complications, but these studies were limited by their cross-sectional designs (3,11,22) and/or were confined to small study populations (3,11). This is the first prospective study that has examined the associations between plasma CEL, CML, and pentosidine and incident fatal and ...
Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) are primarily known as a complication in diabetic patients through their mediation of the inflammatory response. However, a variety of studies have demonstrated enhanced formation of AGEs in cardiovascular disorders. Despite the large number of AGEs produced during the Maillard reaction, recent focus is on the major non-crosslinking AGE Nε-carboxymethyllysine. Kneyber and colleagues focused on sepsis-induced cardiac dysfunction and investigated whether myocardial inflammation is associated with enhanced cardiac AGE deposition and whether this is further enhanced by mechanical ventilation. They showed that both conditions are associated with enhanced AGE deposition and myocardial inflammation. Therefore, AGEs may participate in the inflammatory response related to cardiac dysfunction in critically ill patients. Moreover, life-saving ventilation stimulates AGE formation in these patients. This interesting study raises the question of whether AGEs in critically ill

Clearance of apoptotic cells by macrophages and other phagocytic cells, called efferocytosis, is a central process in the resolution of inflammation. Although the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) has been shown to participate in a variety of acute and chronic inflammatory processes in the lungs and other organs, a role for RAGE in efferocytosis has not been reported. In the present studies, we examined the potential involvement of RAGE in efferocytosis. Macrophages from transgenic RAGE-/- mice showed a decreased ability to engulf apoptotic neutrophils and thymocytes. Pretreatment of RAGE+/+ macrophages with advanced glycation end products, which competitively bind to RAGE, or Abs against RAGE diminished phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. Overexpression of RAGE in human embryonic kidney 293 cells resulted in an increased ability to engulf apoptotic cells. Furthermore, we found that incubation with soluble RAGE enhances phagocytosis of apoptotic cells by both RAGE+/+ and RAGE-/- ...

The molecular events by which ligand-activated RAGE controls diverse signaling are not well understood, but some progress was made recently. Accumulating evidence revealed that RAGE has multiple binding partners within the cytoplasm and on the plasma membrane. It was first pointed out in 2008 that RAGEs cytoplasmic tail is able to recruit Diaphanous-1 (Dia-1), resulting in the ...
Protein glycation, induced by hyperglycemia, is implicated in the appearance of diabetic complications and the aging process. Glycation involves the non-enzymatic reaction between sugars and protein amino groups that lead to formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). When aminoguanidine, a proven AGE inhibitor, was tested as an anti-diabetic drug in clinical trials showed critical side effects, which suggested a need for improved AGE inhibitors. A protein glycation model included histone H1 and glyoxal or methylglyoxal since it allowed to distinguish AGE inhibitors from antioxidants. This book describes the findings of Dr Cervantes and graduate student, Srinath Pashikanti, of novel natural product AGE inhibitors and the in vivo modification of nuclear proteins, histone H1, with AGE adducts. Rutin metabolic derivatives were tested as AGEs inhibitors since rutin, a flavonoid consumed in fruits and vegetables, is metabolized in the gut. These results suggest effective ...
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are critically involved in atherogenesis in diabetes by binding to receptors for AGE (RAGEs) in vascular cells, thus inducing the expression of proinflammatory mediators. In animal models, interruption of the AGE-RAGE interaction reduces lesion size and plaque development. Therefore, limiting RAGE expression might be an intriguing concept to modulate vascular disease in diabetic patients. The present study investigated whether thiazolidinediones (TZDs), antidiabetic agents clinically used to treat patients with type 2 diabetes, might modulate endothelial RAGE expression. Stimulation of human endothelial cells with rosiglitazone or pioglitazone decreased basal as well as tumor necrosis factor-α-induced RAGE cell surface and total protein expression. In addition, TZDs reduced RAGE mRNA expression in endothelial cells. These effects on RAGE expression were caused by an inhibition of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) activation at the proximal NF-κB site of the ...
In patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), atherosclerosis continues to pose a challenge due to its high prevalence, but also because it is particularly reluctant to revascularization therapies (1,2). Moreover, while the detrimental effect of hyperglycemia in developing coronary disease has been firmly established (3,4), the preventive effects of glucose-lowering therapies have been disappointing (5).. There is an important debate, still open, concerning the mechanisms linking hyperglycemia and vascular damage, particularly those related to mitochondrial activity (6). Increasing evidence supports the notion that elevated glucose metabolism adds to inflammation synergistically rather than acting per se (7). Nevertheless, it is very well known that high glucose can also induce nonenzymatic protein glycation (8) that may prevail after normalization of glycemia. Either intermediate Amadori adducts and advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs) have been reported to produce vascular damage, ...

Advanced glycosylation endproducts (AGEs), the glucose-derived adducts that form nonenzymatically and accumulate on tissue proteins, are implicated in many chronic complications associated with diabetes and aging. We have previously described a monocyte/macrophage surface receptor system thought to coordinate AGE protein removal and tissue remodeling, and purified a corresponding 90-kD AGE-binding protein from the murine RAW 264.7 cell line. To identify AGE-binding proteins in normal animals, the tissue distribution of 125I-AGE rat serum albumin taken up from the blood was determined in rats in vivo. These uptake studies demonstrated that the liver was a major site of AGE protein sequestration. Using a solid-phase assay system involving the immobilization of solubilized membrane proteins onto nitrocellulose to monitor binding activity, and several purification steps including affinity chromatography over an AGE bovine serum albumin matrix, two rat liver membrane proteins were isolated that ...

Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) have been introduced to be involved in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA). The influence of AGEs on osteoarthritic fibroblast-like synovial cells (FLS) has been incompletely understood as yet. The present study investigates a potential influence of AGE-modified bovine serum albumin (AGE-BSA) on cell growth, and on the expression of proinflammatory and osteoclastogenic markers in cultured FLS. FLS were established from OA joints and stimulated with AGE-BSA. The mRNA expression of p27Kip1, RAGE (receptor for AGEs), nuclear factor kappa B subunit p65 (NFκB p65), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α, interleukin-6 (IL-6), receptor activator of NFκB ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin was measured by real-time PCR. The respective protein expression was evaluated by western blot analysis or ELISA. NFκB activation was investigated by luciferase assay and electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA).

Glucose can react non-enzymatically with amino groups of, for example, proteins, to yield derivatives termed advanced glycation end products (AGE), which contribute to many chronic progressive diseases associated with microvascular complications. The study aimed to determine the effect of AGE-modified albumin on THP-1 cells and human monocyte-derived macrophages. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) or human serum albumin (HSA), modified by glucose-derived AGE, was prepared by incubation with glucose for differing periods of time. Alternatively, BSA was incubated with sodium cyanoborohydride and glyoxylic acid to produce N(epsilon)-(carboxymethyl)lysine-modified BSA (CML-BSA). Stimulation for 24h of THP-1 cells with BSA, incubated for 6-8 weeks with glucose, induced significant VEGF release. Human monocyte-derived macrophages stimulated with extensively glycated HSA also showed significant VEGF release, as well as upregulation of IL-8 production, incubation for 6h with extensively glycated HSA increased release
Diabetes is the leading cause of ESRD because diabetic nephropathy develops in 30 to 40% of patients. Diabetic nephropathy does not develop in the absence of hyperglycemia, even in the presence of a genetic predisposition. Multigenetic predisposition contributes in the development of diabetic nephropathy, thus supporting that many factors are involved in the pathogenesis of the disease. Hyperglycemia induces renal damage directly or through hemodynamic modifications. It induces activation of protein kinase C, increased production of advanced glycosylation end products, and diacylglycerol synthesis. In addition, it is responsible for hemodynamic alterations such as glomerular hyperfiltration, shear stress, and microalbuminuria. These alterations contribute to an abnormal stimulation of resident renal cells that produce more TGF-1. This growth factor upregulates GLUT-1, which induces an increased intracellular glucose transport and D-glucose uptake. TGF-1 causes augmented extracellular matrix ...
The receptor for advanced glycosylation end products (RAGE) is a multiligand receptor involved in diverse cell signaling pathways. Previous studies show that this gene expresses several splice variants in human, mouse, and dog. Alternative splicing (AS) plays an important role in expanding transcriptomic and proteomic diversity, and it has been related to disease. AS is also one of the main evolutionary mechanisms in mammalian genomes. However, limited information is available regarding the AS of RAGE in a wide context of mammalian tissues. In this study, we examined in detail the different RAGE mRNAs generated by AS from six mammals, including two primates (human and monkey), two artiodactyla (cow and pig), and two rodentia (mouse and rat) in 6-18 different tissues including fetal, adult, and tumor. By nested reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) we identified a high number of splice variants including noncoding transcripts and predicted coding ones with different potential ...

AU - Horiuchi, Seiko. AU - Furue, Masutaka. PY - 2005/1. Y1 - 2005/1. N2 - Advanced glycation end products are the chemical modification of proteins induced by sugars in a hyperglycemic condition. Extracellular matrix proteins are prominent targets of nonenzymatic glycation because of their slow turnover rates. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of nonenzymatic glycation of type I collagen on the migration of keratinocytes. The migration of keratinocytes was dramatically promoted on native type I collagen-coated dishes compared with that on uncoated dishes. When type collagen was glycated with glycolaldehyde, large amounts of advanced glycation end products were produced; the glycated collagen I-coated dishes did not promote the migration of keratinocytes. Glycated collagen I did not affect the ...
BACKGROUND/AIMS:Our previous report showed that IgG levels are strongly correlated with the indocyanine green (ICG) retention rate in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC). This correlation suggests that hyperglobulinemia in LC could be explained by impairment of hepatic removal function. To estimate IgG turnover in LC, in the present paper was determined the advanced glycation end-products (AGE) on IgG as a marker of half-life.METHODOLOGY:Serum samples were obtained from patients with LC, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and Sjögren syndrome (SjS), and from age-matched control patients. IgG was purified from serum by the protein G-based affinity method, concentrated by filtration, and used for assay of Nepsilon-(carboxymethyl) lysine (CML), a predominant AGE, by ELISA.RESULTS:CML on IgG was significantly lower in patients with LC than in control patients, whereas there was no significant difference in total serum CML levels among patients with LC, RA, and SjS, and control patients. CML levels on IgG ...

The present invention relates to compositions and methods for inhibiting protein aging. Accordingly, a composition is disclosed which comprises an agent or compound capable of inhibiting the formation of advanced glycosylation end products of target proteins by reacting with the carbonyl moiety of the early glycosylation product of such target proteins formed by their initial glycosylation. Suitable agents may contain an active nitrogen-containing group, such as a hydrazine group. Particular agents comprise aminoguanidine, α-hydrazinohistidine and mixtures thereof. The method comprises contacting the target protein with the composition. Both industrial and therapeutic applications for the invention are envisioned, as food spoilage and animal protein aging can be treated.
Cooking meat at high temperatures, such as when grilling, creates advanced glycosylation end products, or AGEs, which crank up inflammation. According to research conducted at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, inflammation rose 35 percent in diabetics who ate large quantities of AGEs, but it fell 20 percent in those who ate low levels of AGEs (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2002, vol. 99, no. 24). High levels of AGEs are also found in some cheeses, soy sauces, pretzels, and diet sodas.. 4. Saturated fats ...
Hidden fat. Whenever you have a food that was deep fried such as potato chips, corn chips or French fries, there is the danger of exposing yourself to trans fats from polyunsaturated fatty acids. This is also true for deep fried chicken or any other ready to eat foods that have been prepared in the deep fryer.This type of oil is often reused after it is filtered and advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs) are accumulated in it. This ages your cells including your skin much faster. AGEs also worsen diabetes by causing more complications like heart attacks and kidney failure. For the same reason you should avoid burning meats on the BBQ or food that you cook on a stove.. Hamburgers also have a lot of hidden fat, sometimes as much as 50%. This fat enters your bloodstream and is eventually deposited as fat deposits in your arteries. After decades of eating too many hamburgers and sausages your coronary arteries clog and you require a stent or a bypass surgery. If you do not want to become a ...

Accumulation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) in body tissues plays a major role in the development of diabetic complications. Here, the inhibitory effect of bioactive metabolites isolated from fruit hulls of Garcinia mangostana on AGE formation was investigated through bio-guided approach using aminoguanidine (AG) as a positive control. Including G. mangostana total methanol extract (GMT) in the reaction mixture of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and glucose or ribose inhibited the fluorescent and non-fluorescent AGEs formation in a dose dependent manner. The bioassay guided fractionation of GMT revealed isolation of four bioactive constituents from the bioactive fraction; which were identified as: garcimangosone D (1), aromadendrin-8-C-glucopyranoside (2), epicatechin (3), and 2,3′,4,5′,6-pentahydroxybenzophenone (4). All the tested compounds significantly inhibited fluorescent and non-fluorescent AGEs formation in a dose dependent manner whereas compound 3 (epicatechin) was found to be the

BACKGROUND: Ultra-filtration failure is a serious complication of long-term continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). This complication is related to histological changes of the peritoneum, i.e. severe interstitial fibrosis and microvascular sclerosis. Although their pathogenesis has not been elucidated yet, advanced glycation end products (AGEs) have been shown to accumulate in the peritoneal tissue of CAPD patients. METHODS: Peritoneal biopsy specimens from 14 CAPD patients with low ultra-filtration (n = 9) and high ultra-filtration (n = 5) capacity were immunohistochemically investigated using a monoclonal antibody against AGEs (6D12). The severity of peritoneal fibrosis, microvascular sclerosis and intensity of AGE accumulation were semi-quantitatively evaluated. Peritoneal ultra-filtration capacity was evaluated by calculating daily ultrafiltration volume per body weight (UFV/BW) and D/D0 (glucose) of the peritoneal equilibration test. RESULTS: In all patients with low ...
AGEs have been shown to accumulate in diabetic and ageing organs, including ocular tissues (cornea, lens,vitreous, and retina). Accumulation of AGEs in ECM was shown to elicit several changes of ECM including decreased solubility, decreased susceptibility to enzymes, and changes in such properties as thermal stability, mechanical strength, and stiffness. These changes in the physicochemical properties of ECM are believed to contribute, in part, to the development of age related changes and diabetic complications, including cardiovascular disease, retinopathy, nephropathy, indurated skin and joint stiffness. Albonet al reported a linear age related increase of pentocidine, an advanced glycation end product, in lamina cribrosa. Accumulation of AGEs in ECM of optic nerve heads in the elderly may decrease elasticity of lamina cribrosa and compromise the ability of cribriform plates to bear the strain caused by elevated intraocular pressure. The results of the current study showed that accumulation ...

Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are a complex group of compounds produced through the non-enzymatic glycation and oxidation of proteins, lipids and nucleic acids, primarily due to aging and under certain pathologic condition such as huperglycemia. Some of the best chemically characterized AGEs include N-epsilon-carboxy-methyl-lysine (CML), N-epsilon-carboxy-ethyl-lysine (CEL), and Imidazolone. The major receptor for AGEs, known as receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE or AGER), belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily and has been described as a pattern recognition receptor. AGE/RAGE signaling elicits activation of multiple intracellular signal pathways involving NADPH oxidase, protein kinase C, and MAPKs, then resulting in NF-kappaB activity. NF-kappa B promotes the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6 and TNF-alpha and a variety of atherosclerosis-related genes, including VCAM-1, tissue factor, VEGF, and RAGE. In addition, JAK-STAT-mediated and ...

OBJECTIVE Salsalate is a nonacetylated salicylate that lowers glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Here we examined whether salsalate also lowered serum-protein-bound levels of early and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that have been implicated in diabetic vascular complications. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Participants were from the Targeting Inflammation Using Salsalate for Type 2 Diabetes (TINSAL-T2D) study, which examined the impact of salsalate treatment on hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and a wide variety of other parameters. One hundred eighteen participants received salsalate, 3.5 g/day for 48 weeks, and 109 received placebo. Early glycation product levels (HbA1c and fructoselysine [measured as furosine]) and AGE levels (glyoxal and methylglyoxal hydroimidazolones [G-(1)H, MG-(1)H], carboxymethyllysine [CML], carboxyethyllysine [CEL], pentosidine) were measured in patient serum samples. RESULTS Forty-eight weeks of salsalate treatment lowered levels of HbA1c and serum furosine (P

Background: Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease. While clinical therapies improve the quality of life of diabetic patients with DN, they only slow the rate of progression and therefore novel therapies are required. The study of the Glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 pathway is of current clinical interest as demonstrated by the number of clinical trials targeting GLP-1. The role of the GLP-1 axis in DN is not clearly understood. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the GLP-1 axis in DN and its interaction with the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), central in renal fibrosis and inflammation. Methods: Primary mesangial cells (MC) were isolated from C57BL/6 mice and treated AGE-modified BSA (AGE-BSA, RAGE ligand) (100µg/ml) or BSA control (24 h). Cells were concurrently treated with or without with the GLP-1 agonist, Exendin-4 (1nM). Cell surface expression of RAGE and GLP-1 receptor (GLP-1R) was analysed by flow cytometry. 8-week old ...

Disc-Flex Advanced intervertebral disc support formula, promoting healthy composition, strength, flexibility and comfort This formula addresses the unique nutritional needs of intervertebral cartilage (IVC). IVC is avascular, wears differently, and is affected by different nutritional factors compared to articular cartilage. The basics of healthy disc composition involve glucosamine, chondroitin and collagen. Studies indicate that glucosamine and chondroitin support spinal disc integrity and have the potential to support the strength of the disc under compressive loads. In postmenopausal women, the healthy composition of the lumbar spine is directly related to type II collagen content. The advanced nature of this product involves its ability to maintain healthy advanced glycation end product activity, healthy immune mediator activity, a healthy inflammatory response and healthy calcium metabolism. Advanced glycation end products reduce the ability of the intervertebral disc to produce proteoglycans

Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and the receptor RAGE interaction is involved in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Although exogenously administered soluble RAGE (sRAGE) has been shown to block the harmful effects of AGEs in animal models, there is still controversy about the role of sRAGE in humans. We examined here which anthropometric, metabolic and clinical variables were independent correlates of sRAGE levels in NAFLD patients. The study involved 77 biopsy-proven, unmedictaed NAFLD patients (44 male and 33 female) with a mean age of 43.4±13.0 years old. We examined which anthropometric, metabolic and clinical variables, including liver steatosis and fibrosis markers, are independently associated with serum levels of sRAGE. Mean serum levels of sRAGE were 710.7±290.2 pg/mL. Univariate analysis revealed that waist circumference (inversely), hemoglobin (inversely), number of white blood cells (inversely), total-bilirubin (inversely), free fatty acid (inversely), ferritin ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Diet and Diabetic Kidney Disease. T2 - Plant Versus Animal Protein. AU - Moorthi, Ranjani N.. AU - Vorland, Colby J.. AU - Gallant, Kathleen M.Hill. PY - 2017/3/1. Y1 - 2017/3/1. N2 - Purpose of Review: The goal of this review is to present an overview of the evidence on the effectiveness of plant-based diets in delaying progression of diabetic kidney disease (DKD). Recent Findings: The ideal quantity of dietary protein has been a controversial topic for patients with DKD. Smaller studies have focused on protein source, plant versus animal, for preventing progression. Limited evidence suggests that dietary patterns that focus on plant-based foods, those that are lower in processed foods, or those that are lower in advanced glycation end products (AGE) may be useful in prevention of DKD progression. Summary: Increasing plant-based foods, incorporating diet patterns that limit processed foods, or potentially lowering AGE contents in diets may be beneficial for dietary management of ...
Endogenous glycations occur mainly in the bloodstream to a small proportion of the absorbed simple sugars: glucose, fructose, and galactose. It appears that fructose and galactose have approximately ten times the glycation activity of glucose, the primary body fuel.[7] Glycation is the first step in the evolution of these molecules through a complex series of very slow reactions in the body known as Amadori reactions, Schiff base reactions, and Maillard reactions; which lead to advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs). Some AGEs are benign, but others are more reactive than the sugars they are derived from, and are implicated in many age-related chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases (the endothelium, fibrinogen, and collagen are damaged), Alzheimers disease (amyloid proteins are side-products of the reactions progressing to AGEs),[8][9]cancer (acrylamide and other side-products are released), peripheral neuropathy (the myelin is attacked), and other sensory losses such as deafness (due ...

A non-healing wound is essentially stuck in a highly oxidative, inflammatory loop. Essentially, this is a state of oximation, a combination of oxidative stress and inflammation that has been described in detail in previous issues of Holistic Primary Care. (Read Dr. Roby Mitchells Oximation in Practice series).. It should be obvious that we want to do whatever we can to reduce inflammation. Bear in mind that its not just the wound thats inflamed; in most of these cases the patients entire body is in a hyper-inflammatory state.. Much of the so-called, the normal aging process (atherosclerosis, decreased kidney function, arthritis, heart failure, cognitive decline) is directly linked to a process called glycation, in which glucose molecules are combined with dietary fat and proteins to form advanced glycation end products, otherwise known as glycotoxins. These, in turn, crosslink with different proteins in body tissues, compromising their function.. This process is greatly accelerated ...
In a review in this issue of Critical Care, Bopp and colleagues [1] summarize current knowledge on the receptor of advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) and its potential as a new therapeutic target in sepsis. RAGE is expressed in many cell types involved in the innate immune system and is able to recognize a wide range of endogenous molecules that are released during various conditions of inflammation and/or injury. Collectively, these endogenous molecules, which warn the host of imminent danger, have been called alarmins or danger-associated molecular patterns [2]. An important example of an alarmin and an established ligand for RAGE with relevance for sepsis is high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) [3].. Activation of RAGE results in sustained activation of nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB), thereby converting transient pro-inflammatory responses into lasting cellular dysfunction [4]. The evidence that inhibition of RAGE may be beneficial in sepsis is derived from what is, thus far, a limited ...
This literature review primarily aims to summarize our research, comprising both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, and discuss the possibility of using microinflammation-related biomarkers as peripheral biomarkers in the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with schizophrenia. To date, several studies have been conducted on peripheral biomarkers to recognize the potential markers for the diagnosis of schizophrenia and to determine the state and effects of therapy in patients with schizophrenia. Research has established a correlation between carbonyl stress, an environmental factor, and the pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric diseases, including schizophrenia. In addition, studies on biomarkers related to these stresses have achieved results that are either replicable or exhibit consistent increases or decreases in patients with schizophrenia. For instance, pentosidine, an advanced glycation end product (AGE), is considerably elevated in patients with schizophrenia; however, low levels of vitamin
We have demonstrated a distinct association between ocular lens fluorescence and the estimated risk of ischemic heart disease (IHD) calculated on the basis of a number of non-ocular health parametres. The relationship was attributable to the effects of glucose metabolism and tobacco smoking on both the aging process of the lens and IHD risk. Glucose metabolism and tobacco smoking are well-known risk factors for both lens aging [27] and cardiovascular disease [31, 2]. Glucose and substances in tobacco smoke, glycotoxins, induce irreversible changes on proteins through formation of advanced glycation end products leading to impaired collagen function such as stiffening of arterial walls [32, 33, 13]. In the lens, these protein changes are marked features of the aging process and they can be quantified non-invasively and in vivo by lens autofluorometry. The effect on the rest of the body excerted by these factors can, however, not be assessed in vivo unless invasive procedures are used.. Ischemic ...
Non-enzymatic glycation of biomolecules has been implicated in the pathophysiology of aging and diabetes. Among the potential targets for glycation are biological membranes, characterized by a complex organization of lipids and proteins interacting and forming domains of different size and stability. In the present study, we analyse the effects of glycation on the interactions between membrane proteins and lipids. The phospholipid affinity for the transmembrane surface of the PMCA (plasma-membrane Ca2+-ATPase) was determined after incubating the protein or the phospholipids with glucose. Results show that the affinity between PMCA and the surrounding phospholipids decreases significantly after phosphospholipid glycation, but remains unmodified after glycation of the protein. Furthermore, phosphatidylethanolamine glycation decreases by ∼30% the stability of PMCA against thermal denaturation, suggesting that glycated aminophospholipids induce a structural rearrangement in the protein that makes ...

We believe that understanding blood-vessel dysfunction in diabetes is critical because the progression of vascular diseases may be significantly reduced if dysfunction is corrected, said Cuihua Zhang, an investigator in the Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center and associate professor of internal medicine in the MU School of Medicine. The results of our studies may provide new approaches for the treatment of blood-vessel diseases and disorders in type 2 diabetes, such as the possible use of antibodies that work to stop the proteins responsible for inflammation.. Zhang and other researchers tested their hypothesis that tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), a signaling protein involved in inflammation, was responsible for blood-vessel dysfunction in type 2 diabetes. They observed that diabetic mice had elevated levels of TNF. When diabetic mice lacked TNF, their blood vessels functioned normally. They also observed that advanced glycation end products and their receptors (AGE/RAGE), which are ...
A toolkit for producing true rejuvenation in humans will require a range of different therapies, each of which can repair or reverse one of the varied root causes of degenerative aging. Research is underway for all of these classes of therapy, but very slowly and with very little funding in some cases. The funding situation spans the gamut from that of the stem cell research community, where researchers are afloat in money and interest, to the search for ways to break down advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs), which is a funding desert by comparison, little known or appreciated outside the small scientific community that works in that field.. While bearing in mind that progress in projects with little funding is unpredictable in comparison to that of well-funded projects, I think that we can still take a stab at a likely order of arrival for various important therapies needed to reverse aging. Thus an incomplete list follows, running from the earliest to the latest arrival, with the caveat that ...
Current clinical prediction scores for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) have limited positive predictive value. No studies have evaluated predictive kinetics of plasma biomarkers and receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) polymorphisms in a broad population of critically ill patients or as an adjunct to clinical prediction scores. The main objective of the investigators study is to evaluate the predictive values of plasma soluble RAGE levels for the onset of ARDS in a high risk population of patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). One of the investigators goals is to improve early identification of patients at risk for ARDS in order to better implement preventive stategies prior to ARDS development. The primary outcome is the occurrence of ARDS during the first week after admission to the ICU. ...
Glycation and carbonyl stress produced by methylglyoxal (MG) as a consequence of triose flux in glycolysis has been implicated in the etiology of metabolic syndrome and diabetes complications. An integrated estimation of MG flux is provided by measuring concentrations of its catabolite D-lactate in serum. However, no studies have explored the pathway in childhood obesity. Objective: Study serum concentrations of D-lactate and low molecular weight advanced glycation end-products (LMWAGE) in lean vs adolescents with obesity. Material and Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study of 30 lean and 30 obese adolescents between the ages of 15-19 years. D-lactate was measured kinetically in serum ultrafiltrates by an adaptation of a colorimetric method from Sigma. Total and LMW-AGEs were measured by fluorescence (Excitation: λ 370 nm, Emission: λ 440 nm). The Ethical Committee of the Institution approved this study and informed consent was obtained from the participant adolescents and their parents.

Administering the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to diabetics helps prevent oxidative stress and advanced glycation end product (AGE) formation.
Department of Biomedicine, Aarhus University, Denmark. S100 proteins constitute a large family of Ca2+-dependent regulators of homeostatic processes. Besides functioning intracellularly in calcium homeostasis, cell growth and differentiation, cytoskeleton dynamics, and energy metabolism, S100 proteins can be relocalized to the extracellular compartment where they act as damage-associated molecular patterns by becoming ligands of the receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE), a pattern recognition receptor sensing endogenous stress signals associated with inflammation. Many S100 proteins are overexpressed in tumors and, through their signaling network, facilitate the communication between cancer and stromal cells, thereby maintaining an inflammatory microenvironment favorable to tumor growth and metastasis. Despite the importance of RAGE-S100 crosstalk in sustaining inflammation, the structural basis for S100 proteins interaction and signal transduction through RAGE is unknown. To gain ...
Aging is one of the biggest risk factors for the major prevalent diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, neurodegeneration and cancer, but due to the complex and multifactorial nature of the aging process, the molecular mechanisms underlying age-related diseases are not yet fully understood. glycation of proteins occurs under physiological conditions and represents a type of post-translational modification taking place slowly but continuously throughout the life span, promoting AGE accumulation during aging. Thus, to some extent the accumulation of AGEs is inevitably linked to aging and age-related accumulation of AGEs was shown to exist in human cartilage, skin collagen and pericardial fluid [13-15]. Increased protein glycation is also associated with the pathogenesis of several age-related and chronic inflammatory diseases such as cardiovascular diseases [13], Alzheimers disease [16], stroke [17], as well as the general decline in health associated with old age. Under hyperglycemic ...
