Pgc-1α and its various isoforms may play a role in determining skeletal muscle mitochondrial adaptations in response to diet.
8 wks of dietary supplementation with the flavonoid quercetin Q or red onion extract ROE in a high fat diet HFD ameliorates HFD-induced obesity and insulin resistance in C57BL-J mice while upregulating Pgc-1α and increasing skeletal muscle mitochondrial number and function.
Here, mice were fed a low fat LF, high fat HF, high fat plus quercetin HF + Q, or high fat plus red onion extract HF + RO diet for 9 wks and skeletal muscle Pgc-1α isoform expression and DNA methylation were determined.
Quantification of various Pgc-1α isoforms, including isoforms Pgc-1α-a, Pgc-1α-b, Pgc-1α-c, Pgc-1α4, total NT-Pgc-1α, and FL-Pgc-1α, showed that only total NT-Pgc-1α expression was increased in LF, HF + Q, and HF + RO compared to HF.
Furthermore, Q supplementation decreased Pgc-1α-a expression compared to LF and HF, and ROE decreased Pgc-1α-a expression compared to LF.
FL-Pgc-1α was decreased in HF + Q and HF + RO compared to LF and HF.
HF exhibited hypermethylation at the −260 nucleotide nt in the Pgc-1α promoter.
Q and ROE prevented HFD-induced hypermethylation.
−260 nt methylation levels were associated with NT-Pgc-1α expression only.
Pgc-1α isoform expression may be epigenetically regulated by Q and ROE through DNA methylation.
