Fukuhara et al. (8) identified visfatin as a peptide predominantly expressed in and secreted from visceral adipose tissue and demonstrated in 101 male and female human subjects a correlation between plasma visfatin concentrations and the amount of visceral fat.. We studied plasma visfatin concentrations in 163 subjects with a wide range of obesity, body fat distribution, insulin sensitivity, and glucose tolerance. We found a significant correlation between visfatin plasma concentrations and measures of obesity, i.e., BMI and body fat content, but not with waist circumference or WHR. Moreover, we found a significant positive relationship between BMI, percent body fat, and waist circumference and visceral visfatin expression. No similar relationship existed for subcutaneous visfatin gene expression. These findings are at least in part compatible with the hypothesis that obesity is associated with increased visceral visfatin expression. It is unclear whether visceral visfatin gene expression is ...
Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAmPRTase or Nampt) also known as pre-B-cell colony-enhancing factor 1 (PBEF1) or visfatin is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the NAMPT gene. This protein is the rate-limiting enzyme in the Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) salvage pathway that converts nicotinamide to nicotinamide mononucleotide in mammals to enable NAD+ biosynthesis. NAMPT has also been reported to be a cytokine (PBEF) that promotes B cell maturation and inhibits neutrophil apoptosis. NAMPT is downregulated by an increase of miR-34a in obesity via a 3UTR functional binding site of NAMPT mRNA resulting in a reduction of NAD(+) and decreased SIRT1 activity. NAMPT catalyzes the following chemical reaction: nicotinamide + 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) + pyrophosphate (PPi) Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are nicotinamide and 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRRP), whereas its two ...
Obesity is one of the major risk factors for the development of osteoarthritis (OA). Although the mechanical factors appear to be critical, recent studies have suggested a role for adipokines in cartilage degradation. Chondrocytes from osteoarthritic cartilage respond poorly to insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and the molecular mechanism(s) involved is not clearly understood. The purpose of the present study was to determine the role of extracellular nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (eNAMPT/visfatin), a newly described adipokine, in regulating IGF-1 function in chondrocytes. Human articular chondrocytes isolated from normal ankle cartilage were pretreated with eNAMPT (0.1 to 5.0 μg/ml) overnight followed by stimulation with IGF-1 (50 ng/ml) for 24 hours, and proteoglycan synthesis was measured by [35S]sulfate incorporation. Chondrocytes were pretreated with eNAMPT overnight followed by IGF-1 for 10 minutes, and the cell lysates were immunoblotted for various signaling proteins that are

Visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue display important metabolic differences that underlie the association of visceral obesity with obesity-related cardiovascular and metabolic alterations. Recently, visfatin was identified as an adipokine, which is predominantly secreted from visceral adipose tissue both in humans and mice. In this study, we examined whether visfatin plasma concentrations (using enzyme immunosorbent assay) and mRNA expression (using RT-PCR) in visceral and subcutaneous fat correlates with anthropometric and metabolic parameters in 189 subjects with a wide range of obesity, body fat distribution, insulin sensitivity, and glucose tolerance. Visfatin plasma concentration correlates positively with the visceral visfatin mRNA expression (r(2) = 0.17, P , 0.0001), BMI (r(2) = 0.062, P = 0.004), percent body fat (r(2) = 0.048, P = 0.01), and negatively with subcutaneous visfatin mRNA expression (r(2) = 0.18, P , 0.0001). However, in a subgroup of 73 individuals, in which visceral ...
Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have discovered a way to delay aging in mice with a protein that is abundant in the blood of young mice but declines with age. eNAMPT and the NAD salvage pathway That protein is extracellular nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (eNAMPT), and it plays a key role in the process that cells use to create nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a crucial component that they need for energy production. NAD is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is a dinucleotide, which means that it consists of two nucleotides joined through their phosphate groups. One nucleotide contains an adenine base, and the other contains nicotinamide.
Pancreatic cancer is reported to be dependent on NAD salvage pathway for its growth and survival. Nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase (NAMPT), an enzyme that catalyzes the rate limiting step of NAD biosynthesis is over expressed in a number of cancers. Inhibition of NAMPT with first generation inhibitors has been demonstrated to result in anti-tumor efficacy in preclinical models. Clinical development of first generation NAMPT inhibitors has been hindered because of their poor pharmacological profile, high cytochrome inhibition and possibly mechanism-based toxicities. Therefore, our objective was to develop NAMPT inhibitors with the "best-in-class" profile with strategies for overcoming mechanism-based toxicities. Utilizing structure-guided drug design including determination of co-crystal structures and SAR-based approaches, we have identified a novel chemical series of inhibitors of NAMPT. Optimization of the series for transient target inhibition as a result of reduced binding strength ...

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an important metabolite and cofactor for a number of cellular processes including genomic stability and epigenetic regulation. Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) is the rate limiting enzyme in NAD+ salvaging from nicotinamide. Many tumor cells have an increased need for NAD+ and are therefore highly sensitive to NAMPT inhibition. We have developed a selective and potent small molecule inhibitor, Cmpd1, which inhibits the NAMPT enzyme with sub-nanomolar potency. In cells, Cmpd1 treatment leads to an almost complete reduction of both NAD- and ATP-levels, followed by the induction of cell death. In order to identify sensitive cancer subtypes and associated biomarkers, we analyzed cell sensitivity to NAMPT inhibition in a panel of 240 cell lines. Small cell lung cancer and hematological malignancies were particularly sensitive to NAMPT inhibition. Overall, expression levels of NAMPT and NAD+ consuming enzymes correlated well with sensitivity to ...
Purpose: We sought to identify predictive biomarkers for a novel nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) inhibitor.. Experimental Design: We use a NAMPT inhibitor, GNE-617, to evaluate nicotinic acid rescue status in a panel of more than 400 cancer cell lines. Using correlative analysis and RNA interference (RNAi), we identify a specific biomarker for nicotinic acid rescue status. We next determine the mechanism of regulation of expression of the biomarker. Finally, we develop immunohistochemical (IHC) and DNA methylation assays and evaluate cancer tissue for prevalence of the biomarker across indications.. Results: Nicotinate phosphoribosyltransferase (NAPRT1) is necessary for nicotinic acid rescue and its expression is the major determinant of rescue status. We demonstrate that NAPRT1 promoter methylation accounts for NAPRT1 deficiency in cancer cells, and NAPRT1 methylation is predictive of rescue status in cancer cell lines. Bisulfite next-generation sequencing mapping of the NAPRT1 ...
Goals: This research is to see whether two adipocytokines, visfatin and adiponectin, could be used while analysis markers for metabolic symptoms (MS) in Uygur inhabitants. in comparison to the control group (P < 0.05). However the serum visfatin in the MS group had been improved (1.07 0.41 473921-12-9 supplier versus 1.25 0.32) in comparison to the control group (P < 0.05). The traditional western blot revealed reduced adiponectin and improved visfatin manifestation in the MS individuals in comparison to the normal settings. 473921-12-9 supplier Further real-time RT-PCR evaluation showed how the adiponectin and visfatin manifestation are altered with a transcriptional system. Conclusions: Adiponectin and visfatin may be utilized as analysis markers of MS in Uygur inhabitants. Check. Data with P < 0.05 was regarded as significant. Outcomes MS individuals have obvious medical features of MS As provided in Desk 2, the age groups between both of these groups had been identical. BMI, WC, HC, DBP, ...

The renin-angiotensin system plays a role in the etiology of hypertension and the pathophysiology of cardiac and renal diseases in humans. Ang II is the central product of this system and is involved in regulating immune responses, inflammation, cell growth, and proliferation by acting through Ang II type 1 receptors (AT1 and AT2). Here, we show that targeted disruption of the Agtr1a gene that encodes AT1A results in marked prolongation of life span in mice. Agtr1a-/- mice developed less cardiac and vascular injury, and multiple organs from these mice displayed less oxidative damage than wild-type mice. The longevity phenotype was associated with an increased number of mitochondria and upregulation of the prosurvival genes nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (Nampt) and sirtuin 3 (Sirt3) in the kidney. In cultured tubular epithelial cells, Ang II downregulated Sirt3 mRNA, and this effect was inhibited by an AT1 antagonist. These results demonstrate that disruption of AT1 promotes longevity in ...
Daporinad, also known as APO-866 and FK866, is a small molecule with potential antineoplastic and antiangiogenic activities. NMPRTase inhibitor APO866 binds to and inhibits nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NMPRTase), inhibiting the biosynthesis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) from niacinamide (vitamin B3), which may deplete energy reserves in metabolically active tumor cells and induce tumor cell apoptosis. In addition, this agent may inhibit tumor cell prioduction of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), resulting in the inhibition of tumor angiogenesis.

Our study establishes a novel role for Nampt‐mediated NAD+ biosynthesis in NSPC proliferation, self‐renewal, and differentiation into oligodendrocytes. Importantly, we demonstrated that: (i) hippocampal NAD+ levels and Nampt expression decline with age; (ii) in vivo ablation of Nampt in the adult Nestin+ population impaired NSPC proliferation and self‐renewal; (iii) acute ablation of Nampt in hippocampal neurospheres significantly reduced NAD+ levels in NSPCs and stalled them in G1 of the cell cycle; (iv) chronic ablation of Nampt in hippocampal neurospheres abrogated oligodendrogenesis, and in vivo ablation of Nampt in the adult Nestin+ population reduced NSPC‐mediated oligodendrogenesis upon insult; (v) Sirt1 and Sirt2 are required for NSPC‐mediated oligodendrogenesis, yet in a redundant manner. These results reveal that Nampt deficiency in adult NSPCs recapitulates their functional defects observed during the aging process.. The finding that both hippocampal NAD+ levels and Nampt ...
In light of these observations, we propose the following scenario to explain the synthetic lethality between PARP and NAMPT inhibition: (i) drugs such as olaparib cause cell inhibition by causing persistent DNA lesions and/or impairing DNA repair; (ii) as olaparib is a reversible catalytic inhibitor that competes with β-NAD+ for binding to the catalytic domain of PARP1/2, cellular levels of β-NAD+ could, in principle modulate the cell inhibitory effects of olaparib; and (iii) as the major source of β-NAD+ for PARsylation reactions is via nicotinamide salvage and the activity of NAMPT, non-competitive inhibition of NAMPT (e.g. by the use of an RNAi reagent or a non-reversible catalytic inhibitor such as FK866) could limit β-NAD+ levels, reduce the extent of β-NAD+/PARP inhibitor competition for the PARP catalytic domain and thus exacerbate the deleterious effects of PARP inhibitors on cells.. To directly assess whether such deleterious effects were in fact exacerbated by FK866, we estimated ...
Aim: The hypoxic condition within large or infiltrative hypovascular tumors produces intracellular acidification, that could activate many signaling pathways and augment cancer cell growth and invasion. (CAI#1), and/or the hexokinase II inhibitor, 3-bromopyruvate (3-BP). A medical center pathological analysis of 69 individuals who underwent an HCC resection was performed using a cells array. Results: Incubation of HCC cells under hypoxia (1% O2, 5% CO2, 94% N2) for 36 h significantly improved CA-IX manifestation level. CAI#1 (400 mol/L) buy 857066-90-1 or CA-IX siRNA (100 mol/L) did not influence HCC cell growth and induce apoptosis. However, CAI#1 or CA-IX siRNA at these concentrations enhanced the apoptosis induced by 3-BP (100 mol/L). This enhancement was attributed to improved ER stress and JNK activation, as compared with 3-BP only. Furthermore, a medical center pathological analysis of 69 HCC individuals exposed that tumor CA-IX intensity was inversely related to E-cadherin intensity. ...

Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT), also known as pre-B-cell colony-enhancing factor, is the rate-limiting enzyme that converts nicotinamide to nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) from nicotinamide in the salvage pathway of NAD+ biosynthesis in mammals. Nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase 1 (NMNAT1) converts NMN to NAD+. The expression of NAMPT is upregulated during activation of immune cells such as monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, T and B cells, as well as in amniotic epithelial cells upon stimulation with several inflammatory cytokines. NAMPT-specific inhibitor, FK866 was found to deplete intracellular NAD content, resulting in apoptotic cell death in many cancer cell lines without any DNA damaging effect. Recently, Nakahata K et al, demonstrated that NAMPT is required to modulate circadian gene expression and circadian oscillation of NAD+.. ...
NAD+ increases can also occur independently of the Preiss-Handler route. NAM and NR are important NAD+ precursors first converted to nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) by nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and NR kinase (NRK), respectively. NMN is then transformed into NAD+ by NMN adenylyltransferase [36].. As we age, our bodies undergo changes in metabolism, and a key part of these processes may affect de novo NAD+ synthesis, also called the L-tryptophan/kynurenine pathway (see Figure IB in Box 1). In mammals, the use of the de novo NAD+ biosynthetic pathway is limited to a few specific organs.. Finally, dysregulation of the kynurenine pathway is also linked to genetic disorders and age-related diseases such as obesity and cancer [14,15]. These age-associated changes in de novo NAD+ biosynthesis may have the potential to impact several biological processes, and thus contribute to age-related diseases and cancer in the elderly.. Animal models mimicking downregulation of NAD+ ...
The poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARsylation) activity of tankyrase (TNKS) regulates diverse physiological processes including energy metabolism and wnt/β-catenin signaling. This TNKS activity uses NAD+ as a co-substrate to post-translationally modify various acceptor proteins including TNKS itself. PARsylation by TNKS often tags the acceptors for ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation. Whether this TNKS activity is regulated by physiological changes in NAD+ levels or, more broadly, in cellular energy charge has not been investigated. Because the NAD+ biosynthetic enzyme nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) in vitro is robustly potentiated by ATP, we hypothesized that nutritional energy might stimulate cellular NAMPT to produce NAD+ and thereby augment TNKS catalysis. Using insulin-secreting cells as a model, we showed that glucose indeed stimulates the autoPARsylation of TNKS and consequently its turnover by the ubiquitin-proteasomal system. This glucose effect on TNKS is mediated primarily by
Despite advances in clinical therapy, metastasis remains the leading cause of death in breast cancer patients. Mutations in mitochondrial DNA, including those affecting complex I and oxidative phosphorylation, are found in breast tumors and could facilitate metastasis. This study identifies mitochondrial complex I as critical for defining an aggressive phenotype in breast cancer cells. Specific enhancement of mitochondrial complex I activity inhibited tumor growth and metastasis through regulation of the tumor cell NAD+/NADH redox balance, mTORC1 activity, and autophagy. Conversely, nonlethal reduction of NAD+ levels by interfering with nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase expression rendered tumor cells more aggressive and increased metastasis. The results translate into a new therapeutic strategy: enhancement of the NAD+/NADH balance through treatment with NAD+ precursors inhibited metastasis in xenograft models, increased animal survival, and strongly interfered with oncogene-driven breast ...
In the present study we established that NAMPT is the molecular target of the GMX1778 small-molecule cancer therapeutic candidate. A global metabolic profiling study was instrumental in the discovery that NAD+ levels were rapidly depleted in GMX1778-treated cells. NAD+ depletion was followed by ATP depletion and ultimately resulted in cell death. Previous results suggested that the mechanism of action of GMX1778 involved the inhibition of IKK leading to decreased NF-κB activity (24). However, our results show that the inhibition of IKK and the subsequent inhibition of NF-κB activity in cells following GMX1778 treatment are secondary to the initial NAD+ depletion, since it can be recovered by restoration of NAD+ levels. Furthermore, NAD+ repletion completely rescues cells from the cytotoxicity of GMX1778. There appears to be a threshold level of NAD+ required to protect cells from GMX1778 cytotoxicity, given that NMN supplementation only partially restores the cellular NAD+ levels while ...
An unexplored area in CLL therapy is targeting deregulated metabolism. NAMPT is a metabolic enzyme, essential for the salvage generation of NAD. Preclinical studies have shown that FK866, a NAMPT inhibitor, is effective in killing leukemic cell lines and has the ability to decrease cancer cell survival in xenograft models of leukemia, myeloma, and lymphoma (28, 30, 31, 40). In the present study, we exploited NAD-salvage generation as a clinically relevant target in CLL by assessing the cytotoxicity of FK866 against CLL cells in vitro, and how this activity correlates with markers of high-risk, aggressive, and drug-resistant disease.. Previous studies report that hematopoietic progenitors are less sensitive to FK866 than tumor cells (30, 31, 41). In the present study, we demonstrated that primary CLL cells overexpress NAMPT in comparison with control PBMCs and non-CLL B lymphocytes. CLL cells were more sensitive to FK866 with a LD50 of 7.3 nmol/L, well below doses achieved in a phase II clinical ...

Visfatin is an adipokine highly expressed in visceral AT (adipose tissue) of humans and rodents, the production of which seems to be dysregulated in excessive fat accumulation and conditions of insulin resistance. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), an n−3 PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid), has been demonstrated to exert beneficial effects in obesity and insulin resistance conditions, which have been further linked to its reported ability to modulate adipokine production by adipocytes. TNF-α (tumour necrosis factor-α) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine whose production is increased in obesity and is involved in the development of insulin resistance. Control of adipokine production by some insulin-sensitizing compounds has been associated with the stimulation of AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase). The aim of the present study was to examine in vitro the effects of EPA on visfatin production and the potential involvement of AMPK both in the absence or presence of TNF-α. Treatment with the ...

Esophageal cancer has a poor prognosis, and in 2009, its mortality ranked the fourth and its incidence fifth among all reported cancers in China [2]. While esophageal cancer has been studied in depth, the specific mechanism by which it develops is still unclear. Given the known influence of genetic polymorphisms on certain types of cancer, it was important for this group to analyze the as yet unknown association between genetic polymorphisms and ESCC susceptibility, particularly since we are located within a high-ESCC-incidence region of China. For this study, NAMPT was selected as a basis for analyzing this association.. The adipokine Nampt was first reported as a pleiotropic protein, and is widely known as a key regulator of NAD, which is intimately involved in proliferation, cytokine production, immunological regulation and angiogenesis. Nampt is overexpressed in a variety of cancers, including that of the stomach and colorectal cavity [15,16], and its inhibitor FK866 is a widely studied ...
DescriptionNMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) is is a bioavailable precursor to Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD, NAD+). NAD levels naturally decline as we age and when it decrease, our cells and organs begin functioning less efficiently. Low NAD levels in turn are associated with multiple age-related diseases.

A small fraction makes it intact to muscle and other tissues outside Liver The charts at left are from this 2016 study which used mice that have had the gene for Nampt knocked out in quadricep muscle, so are unable to process NAM. As a result, the NAD+ levels drop to 15% of normal.. These mice were fed double labelled NR to track the movement of the NR through the body.. Any NR that makes it through digestion intact would be incorporated as double labelled NAD (M+2). NR that has been metabolized to NAM loses 1 heavy tracking molecule and would be found as M+1.. Chart D shows both single and double labelled NAD+ (green and red) are abundant in roughly equal amounts in the liver.. Chart C shows quite a lot of single labelled NAD+ in the muscle which is from NR that has been metabolized to NAM and then NMN.. We know this NAD+ was metabolized as NAM and then NMN because these mice lacked Nampt in muscle, so can not process NAM.. At the same time, there is only a tiny fraction of double labelled ...

A novel tripeptide, Phe-Arg-Arg, was found to exert a potent, insulin-mimetic inhibitory action on lysosomal proteolysis in the Langendorff-perfused rat heart. This tripeptide was synthesized based upon its partial structural analogy to the biguanide anti-hyperglycaemic agent, phenformin (phenylethylbiguanide), which has previously been found to exert a Zn(2+)-dependent inhibitory action on lysosomal proteolysis. Hearts were biosynthetically labelled with [3H]leucine in vitro. The percentage change in subsequent release of [3H]leucine (2 mM non-radioactive leucine) was determined in non-recirculating perfusate. The background Zn2+ content of the perfusate was determined to be 20 nM. Major endogenous Zn2+ buffers were present in molar excess of Zn2+: 0.1 mM citrate, 0.2% BSA, and complete physiological amino acids. Infusion of maximally effective levels of chloroquine (30 microM) or insulin (5 nM) caused a 38% inhibition of total proteolysis, which corresponds to the lysosomal subcomponent. In ...
The growing prevalence of obesity and its related metabolic diseases, mainly Type 2 diabetes (T2D), has increased the interest in adipose tissue (AT) and its role as a principal metabolic orchestrator. Two decades of research have now shown that ATs act as an endocrine organ, secreting soluble factors termed adipocytokines or adipokines. These adipokines play crucial roles in whole-body metabolism with different mechanisms of action largely dependent on the tissue or cell type they are acting on. The pancreatic β cell, a key regulator of glucose metabolism due to its ability to produce and secrete insulin, has been identified as a target for several adipokines. This review will focus on how adipokines affect pancreatic β cell function and their impact on pancreatic β cell survival in disease contexts such as diabetes. Initially, the "classic" adipokines will be discussed, followed by novel secreted adipocyte-specific factors that show therapeutic promise in regulating the adipose-pancreatic ...
