Fusão mitocondrial foi medida seguindo o equilíbrio da GFP matriz segmentada photoconverted através da rede mitocondrial ao longo do tempo. Até agora, apenas uma célula possa ser sujeita a uma análise de longo horas cinética de cada vez. Nós apresentamos um método que mede simultaneamente várias células, acelerando assim o processo de coleta de dados.

Long-term Intermittent Feeding, but Not Caloric Restriction, Leads to Redox Imbalance, Insulin Receptor Nitration, and Glucose Intolerance
Free Radical Biology & Medicine. Oct, 2011 | Pubmed ID: 21816219
Calorie restriction is a dietary intervention known to improve redox state, glucose tolerance, and animal life span. Other interventions have been adopted as study models for caloric restriction, including nonsupplemented food restriction and intermittent, every-other-day feedings. We compared the short- and long-term effects of these interventions to ad libitum protocols and found that, although all restricted diets decrease body weight, intermittent feeding did not decrease intra-abdominal adiposity. Short-term calorie restriction and intermittent feeding presented similar results relative to glucose tolerance. Surprisingly, long-term intermittent feeding promoted glucose intolerance, without a loss in insulin receptor phosphorylation. Intermittent feeding substantially increased insulin receptor nitration in both intra-abdominal adipose tissue and muscle, a modification associated with receptor inactivation. All restricted diets enhanced nitric oxide synthase levels in the insulin-responsive adipose tissue and skeletal muscle. However, whereas calorie restriction improved tissue redox state, food restriction and intermittent feedings did not. In fact, long-term intermittent feeding resulted in largely enhanced tissue release of oxidants. Overall, our results show that restricted diets are significantly different in their effects on glucose tolerance and redox state when adopted long-term. Furthermore, we show that intermittent feeding can lead to oxidative insulin receptor inactivation and glucose intolerance.
