dc.description.abstractPeroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) is known to be activated via exercise-associated transient increases in oxidative stress. However, the precise mechanism(s) triggering PPARγ activation in monocytes during/following exercise remain to be confirmed. Here, two cohorts of five healthy male individuals undertook exercise bouts (cycling; 70% O2max; 45 min) in the presence/absence of dietary antioxidant supplementation (vitamins C (1000 mg/day) and E (400IU/day) for four weeks before exercise); monocytic 5’ adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK)/PPARγ co-activator-1alpha (PGC-1α)/PPARγ signalling was investigated in samples obtained before exercise and up to 24 h after exercise, while THP-1 cells were cultured as an in vitro monocyte model. In THP-1 cells, AMPKα1 was phosphorylated within 1h of menadione (15 μM)-triggered increases in [reactive oxygen species (ROS)]cyto, an effect which was followed by upregulation of PPARγ and several of its target genes (PGC-1α, liver X receptor alpha [LXRα] and ATP-binding cassette subfamily A, member 1 [ABCA1]; 24–72 h), with these effects being blunted by co-administration of vitamin C (62.5 μM). Conversely, treatment with oxidised low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) (1 μg/mL; 24–72 h), but not non-oxidised LDL, upregulated the above PPARγ-regulated genes without affecting AMPKα1 phosphorylation. In vivo, dietary antioxidant supplementation (which is known to prevent exercise-triggered increases in oxLDL levels) blunted exercise-associated upregulation of the above PPARγ-regulated genes, but had no effect on exercise-associated transient [ROS]cyto increases, or on AMPK phosphorylation. These data suggest that exercise-associated PPARγ signalling effects appear, at least in monocytes, to be mediated by increased generation of PPARγ ligands via oxidation of lipoproteins (following exercise-associated transient increases in oxidative stress), rather than via [ROS]cyto-mediated AMPK activation. These findings may be of clinical relevance, as PPARγ activation in monocytes is associated with beneficial effects related to type-2 diabetes and its cardiovascular complications.en_US
