A biomarker for Cardiovascular Diseases and Obesity
Infiltration of inflammatory macrophages into adipose tissues with the progression of obesity triggers insulin resistance and obesity-related metabolic diseases. We recently reported that macrophage-derived apoptosis inhibitor of macrophage (AIM) protein is increased in blood in line with obesity progression and is incorporated into adipocytes, thereby inducing lipolysis in adipose tissue. Here we show that such a response is required for the recruitment of adipose tissue macrophages. In vitro, AIM-dependent lipolysis induced an efflux of palmitic and stearic acids from 3T3-L1 adipocytes, thereby stimulating chemokine production in adipocytes via activation of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4). In vivo administration of recombinant AIM to TLR4-deficient (TLR4(-/-)) mice resulted in induction of lipolysis without chemokine production in adipose tissues. Consistently, mRNA levels for the chemokines that affect macrophages were far lower in AIM-deficient (AIM(-/-)) than in wild-type (AIM(+/+)) obese adipose tissue. This reduction in chemokine production resulted in a marked prevention of inflammatory macrophage infiltration into adipose tissue in obese AIM(-/-) mice, although these mice showed more advanced obesity than AIM(+/+) mice on a high-fat diet. Diminished macrophage infiltration resulted in decreased inflammation locally and systemically in obese AIM(-/-) mice, thereby protecting them from insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. These results indicate that the increase in blood AIM is a critical event for the initiation of macrophage recruitment into adipose tissue, which is followed by insulin resistance. Thus, AIM suppression might be therapeutically applicable for the prevention of obesity-related metabolic disorders.

Protein Biomarkers of New-Onset Cardiovascular Disease: Prospective Study From the Systems Approach toBiomarker Research in Cardiovascular Disease Initiative.

APPROACH AND RESULTS: We used discovery mass spectrometry (MS) to determine plasma concentrations of 861 proteins in 135 myocardial infarction (MI) cases and 135 matched controls. Then, we measured 59 markers by targeted MS in 336 ASCVD case-control pairs. Associations with MI or ASCVD were tested in single-marker and multiple-marker analyses adjusted for established ASCVD risk factors. Twelve single markers from discovery MS were associated with MI incidence (at P<0.01), adjusting for clinical risk factors. Seven proteins in aggregate (cyclophilin A, CD5 antigen-like, cell-surface glycoprotein MUC18, collagen-α 1 [XVIII] chain, salivary α-amylase 1, C-reactive protein, and multimerin-2) were highly associated with MI (P<0.0001) and significantly improved its prediction compared with a model with clinical risk factors alone (C-statistic of 0.71 versus 0.84). Through targeted MS, 12 single proteins were predictors of ASCVD (at P<0.05) after adjusting for established risk factors. In multiple-marker analyses, 4 proteins in combination (α-1-acid glycoprotein 1, paraoxonase 1, tetranectin, and CD5 antigen-like) predicted incident ASCVD (P<0.0001) and moderately improved the C-statistic from the model with clinical covariates alone (C-statistic of 0.69 versus 0.73).
