OBJECTIVES Chronic and high consumption of fat constitutes an environmental stress that leads to metabolic diseases. We hypothesized that high-fat diet (HFD) transgenerationally remodels the epigenome of spermatozoa and metabolism of the offspring. METHODS F0-male rats fed either HFD or chow diet for 12 weeks were mated with chow-fed dams to generate F1(More)
Hint2 belongs to the superfamily of histidine triad hydrolase enzymes. Recently, it has been shown to influence the mitochondria-dependent apoptosis occurring in hepatocytes, but its mechanism of action is still obscure. Here, we demonstrate that Hint2 is expressed in the mitochondria of H295R cells and in normal adrenals, and that this protein is involved(More)
The mineralocorticoid receptor has been implicated in the development of several cardiac pathologies and could participate in the high incidence of lethal ventricular arrhythmias associated with hyperaldosteronism. We have observed previously that aldosterone markedly increases in vitro the rate of spontaneous contractions of isolated neonate rat(More)
Diacylglycerol kinases (DGKs) catalyze the phosphorylation and conversion of diacylglycerol (DAG) into phosphatidic acid. DGK isozymes have unique primary structures, expression patterns, subcellular localizations, regulatory mechanisms, and DAG preferences. DGKε has a hydrophobic segment that promotes its attachment to membranes and shows substrate(More)
