Abstract
The renin–angiotensin system (RAS) is undisputedly well-studied as one of the oldest and most critical regulators for arterial blood pressure, fluid volume, as well as renal function. In recent studies, RAS has also been implicated in the development of obesity, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and other diseases, and also involved in the regulation of several signaling pathways such as proliferation, apoptosis and autophagy, and insulin resistance. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), an essential cellular energy sensor, has also been discovered to be involved in these diseases and cellular pathways. This would imply a connection between the RAS and AMPK. Therefore, this review serves to draw attention to the cross-talk between RAS and AMPK, then summering the most recent literature which highlights AMPK as a point of balance between physiological and pathological functions of the RAS.

Introduction: Fibrotic disorders are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality; hence effective treatments are still vigorously sought. AdipoRs (AdipoR1 and Adipo2) are responsible for the antifibrotic effects of adiponectin (APN). APN exerts antifibrotic effects by binding to its receptors. APN concentration and AdipoR expression are closely associated with fibrotic disorders. Decreased AdipoR expression may reduce APN-AdipoR signaling, while the upregulation of AdipoR expression may restore t...

Heart failure (HF) is a serious disease with high mortality. The incidence of this disease has continued to increase over the past decade. All cardiovascular diseases causing dysfunction of various physiological processes can result in HF. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), an energy sensor, has pleiotropic cardioprotective effects and plays a critical role in the progression of HF. In this review, we highlight that AMPK can not only improve the energy supply in the failing heart by promoting ...

Abstract AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a pivotal regulator of some endogenous defensive molecules in various pathological processes, particularly myocardial ischemia (MI), a high risk of myocardial infarction. Thereby it is of great significance to explore the inherent mechanism between AMPK and myocardial infarction. In this review, we first introduce the structure and role of AMPK in the heart. Next, we introduce the mechanisms of AMPK in the heart; followed by the energy regulation o...

Abstract Mammals respond to muscular exercise by increasing cardiac output to meet the increased demand for oxygen in the working muscles and it is well-established that regular bouts of exercise results in myocardial remodeling. Depending on exercise type, intensity and duration, these cardiac adaptations lead to changes in the energetic substrates required to sustain cardiac contractility. In contrast to the failing heart, fatty acids are the preferred substrate in the trained heart, though gl...

Abstract Background Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) and a partial agonist of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ (PPARγ). It has been shown to significantly enhance insulin sensitivity in clinical studies and in vitro experiments. However, the effect of telmisartan on PPARγ in adipocytes remains unknown. Methods 3T3-L1 adipocytes were incubated with tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) to simulate growth under an inflammatory condition. On this basis, adipocytes were t...

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), a serine/threonine protein kinase, has been shown to exert a protective effect against cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. Our previous reports have demonstrated that AMPK can inhibit cardiac hypertrophy and block the development of heart failure by promoting autophagy. However, other investigators have demonstrated that overactive and dysregulated autophagy may also contribute to the onset and exacerbation of heart failure. Thus, a major goal of the prese...

PURPOSE: The study aimed to investigate the potential nephroprotective effects of vitamin D3 in metabolic syndrome (MetS) and the molecular basis of the underlying mechanisms of its action. METHODS: MetS was induced in adult male Wistar rats by adding fructose (10%) to every day drinking water and salt (3%) to the diet. Six weeks after fructose/salt consumption, fasting serum lipid profile and uric acid levels were determined, an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was performed and kidney functi...

Abstract Insulin resistance (IR) seemingly play a role in chronic kidney disease (CKD). The present study has elucidated the crucial interplay of oxidative stress, inflammatory, apoptotic and profibrotic signaling pathways linking IR to CKD. The study aimed at investigating the pleiotropic nephroprotective effects of either vildagliptin or vitamin D3 in a fructose/salt-induced IR rat model, highlighting the potential molecular mechanisms underlying their action. Another interesting target was to...

Abstract From an evolutionary point of view, vitamin D and melatonin appeared very early and share functions related to defense mechanisms. In the current clinical setting, vitamin D is exclusively associated with phosphocalcic metabolism. Meanwhile, melatonin has chronobiological effects and influences the sleep-wake cycle. Scientific evidence, however, has identified new actions of both molecules in different physiological and pathological settings. The biosynthetic pathways of vitamin D and m...
