|Abstract||Mitochondrial dysfunction has been associated with insulin resistance and diabetes. Decreased mitochondrial density and mitochondrial copy numbers have been found in insulin-resistant individuals. Restoration of the number of mitochondria and normal mitochondrial function has become an important therapeutic target of diabetes. Salicylate, the main active ingredient in aspirin, has been in medicinal use since ancient times. Little information regarding the effects of salicylate on mitochondrial function has been reported. In this study, we assessed the effects of salicylate on the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1α (PGC-1α) signaling pathway and mitochondrial biogenesis in pre-adipocytes. Our findings demonstrate that treatment with salicylate promoted the expression of PGC-1α and its downstream targets nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1) and mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM). Importantly, salicylate treatment significantly increased the number of mDNA, citrate synthase activity, expression of respiratory chain complex I, and mitochondrial mass, which were suppressed by the specific AMPK inhibitor Compound C. Indeed, salicylate treatment induced the phosphorylation of AMPK, which was involved in the induction of PGC-1α, NRF1, and TFAM. Importantly, inhibition of PGC-1α expression using PGC-1α small RNA interference abolished the effects of salicylate on mitochondrial biogenesis. These results suggest that salicylate has a potential therapeutic capacity against mitochondrial dysfunction in diabetes. - Highlights: • First time to show that salicylate promotes the expressions of PGC-1α, NRF1, TFAM. • First time to show that salicylate stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis. • AMPK mediates the effect of salicylate on PGC-1α expression. • Suggesting the roles of salicylate in mitochondrial dysfunction related disease.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
