Effect of dietary restriction on the degradation of proteins in senescent mouse liver parenchymal cells in culture

, : Effect of dietary restriction on the degradation of proteins in senescent mouse liver parenchymal cells in culture. Archives Of Biochemistry & Biophysics. 283(2): 362-366

We previously reported that the half-life of protein degradation in cells from old mice is about 50% longer than that in cells from young or middle-aged ones. In the present study we investigated the degradation rate of microinjected proteins (horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and ovalbumin (OVA)) and pulse-labeled proteins in hepatocytes from dietary-restricted old mice. Dietary restriction was initiated when mice were 23 months of age and performed in two steps (first 80% and then 60% of the ad libitum intake), the total period being 70 days. Hepatocytes were isolated from mice fed a restricted diet and fed ad libitum. The half-lives of HRP, OVA, and pulse-labelled proteins in the hepatocytes from mice fed a restricted diet were about 40% shorter than those in the cells from mice fed ad libitum. These values were close to those in the cells of young animals. These results are discussed in relation to our previous findings that a similar regimen reduces the percentage of heat-labile enzymes accumulated in tissues of aged animals.

Whole cells of Lactobacillus acidophilus are capable of degrading thymidine to thymine, suggesting the presence of thymidine phosphorylase (or thymidine hydrolase). This activity was also demonstrated in cell-free extracts.
