Abstract Methionine is an essential sulphur-containing amino acid involved in protein synthesis, regulation of protein function and methylation reactions. Dietary methionine restriction (0.12–0.17% methionine in food) extends the life span of various animal species and delays the onset of aging-associated diseases and cancers. In the liver, methionine restriction attenuates steatosis and delays the development of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis due to antioxidative action and metabolic…

Methionine metabolism in chronic liver diseases: an update on molecular mechanism and therapeutic implication

TLDR
The latest achievements related to methionine metabolism and CLD are reviewed, from molecular mechanisms to clinical research, and some insights into the future direction of basic and clinical research are provided.

Vitamin B Supplementation and Nutritional Intake of Methyl Donors in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: A Critical Review of the Impact on Epigenetic Machinery

TLDR
This is an overview of the epigenetic changes related to DNA methylation in patients with advanced CKD and ESRD and special attention was paid to the efficacy of B-vitamins supplementation and dietary intake of methyl donors on homocysteine lowering and cardiovascular protection.

S-Adenosylmethionine: From the Discovery of Its Inhibition of Tumorigenesis to Its Use as a Therapeutic Agent

TLDR
The discrepancy between positive results of SAM treatment of experimental tumors and modest effects against human disease may depend on more advanced human disease stage at moment of diagnosis.

Age-Related Changes in Lipidome of Rat Frontal Cortex and Cerebellum Are Partially Reversed by Methionine Restriction Applied in Old Age

TLDR
It is concluded that the rat cerebellum and frontal cortex have efficient mechanisms to preserve the lipid profile of their cell membranes throughout their adult lifespan in order to maintain brain structure and function.

Effects of High and Low Protein Diets on Inflammatory Profiles in People with Morbid Obesity: A 3-Week Intervention Study

TLDR
It is suggested that a LP hypocaloric diet modulates a wider range of immune inflammatory biomarkers in morbidly obese individuals than a high (HP) or low (LP) protein diet.

Methionine restriction on lipid metabolism and its possible mechanisms

TLDR
The comparison of alterations of fat metabolism responses to dietary MR between adipose tissue and liver, and the comparison of changes between rodents and pigs is made to illustrate the tissue- and species-specific responses.

Remodeling the Integration of Lipid Metabolism Between Liver and Adipose Tissue by Dietary Methionine Restriction in Rats

TLDR
The coordinated transcriptional remodeling of lipid metabolism between liver and WAT by dietary MR produced an overall reduction in circulating and tissue lipids and provides a potential mechanism for the increase in metabolic flexibility and enhanced insulin sensitivity produced by the diet.

A Methionine Deficient Diet Enhances Adipose Tissue Lipid Metabolism and Alters Anti-Oxidant Pathways in Young Growing Pigs

TLDR
Results show that a dietary methionine deficiency resulted in increased levels of lipogenesis and lipolytic indicators in porcine adipose tissues, illustrating that a rapidly growing animal differently adapts tissue metabolisms when facing an insufficient methionin supply.

Methionine restriction beyond life‐span extension

TLDR
Research on dietary methionine restriction and its involvement in metabolism, cancer, and epigenetics is summarized.

Methionine restriction affects oxidative stress and glutathione-related redox pathways in the rat

TLDR
Findings indicate that oxidative stress is reduced by MR feeding in rats, but this effect cannot be explained by changes in the activity of antioxidant enzymes.

Mechanisms of Increased In Vivo Insulin Sensitivity by Dietary Methionine Restriction in Mice

TLDR
Findings provide a potential mechanism for the diet-induced increase in insulin sensitivity among tissues that involves a direct effect of methionine in liver and an indirect effect in adipose tissue through MR-dependent increases in hepatic transcription and release of FGF-21.

Role of GCN2-Independent Signaling Through a Noncanonical PERK/NRF2 Pathway in the Physiological Responses to Dietary Methionine Restriction

TLDR
It is found that the absence of GCN2 had no effect on the ability of MR to reduce body weight or adiposity, increase energy intake and expenditure, increase hepatic transcription and release of fibroblast growth factor 21, or improve insulin sensitivity, and a novel glutathione-sensing mechanism is uncovered to link dietary MR to its metabolic phenotype.

Methionine restriction decreases endogenous oxidative molecular damage and increases mitochondrial biogenesis and uncoupling protein 4 in rat brain.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that MetR can be responsible, at least in part, for the decrease in endogenous oxidative damage in CR, and beneficial MetR-induced changes likely derived from metabolic reprogramming at the cellular and tissue level can play a key role in the protection against aging-associated neurodegenerative disorders.
