Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder, characterized by abnormally high blood glucose levels due to decreased secretion or effectiveness in function of insulin. Having a role in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, skeletal muscle is affected by the absence of insulin in diabetic conditions. This current study reports the application of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy in the determination of macromolecular alterations in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rat skeletal Soleus (SOL) muscles, which highlight the promise of this technique in medical research. The results revealed that DM induced several alterations in macromolecular content and structure of slow-contracting SOL muscles. In diabetic SOL muscles, a decrease in the content of lipids, proteins and nucleic acids together with an increase in lipid order was observed. The decrease in the level of unsaturation and acyl chain length of lipids demonstrated the increased lipid peroxidation in DM. There were alterations in protein secondary structure in DM with a decrease in alpha-helix and beta-sheet content of proteins, whereas the content of aggregated beta-strands increased, which is generally seen when proteins denature. Besides, the integrity of collagen molecules was found to be decreased, demonstrating the alterations in its triple helical structure in diabetic muscles. Furthermore, the same alterations mentioned above were also observed in diabetic fast-contracting Extensor Digitorum Longus (EDL) muscles. However, having a high content of mitochondria and relying on an oxidative pathway, SOL muscle was found to be more affected by DM.

In general, Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is a disease characterized by impaired functioning of pancreatic beta cells and progressive insulin hormone deficiency progressively in combination with physiologically ongoing insulin resistance. In the later stages of the disease, beta cell dysfunction is defined as beta cell death and a decrease in functional cell count. It is a common clinical finding in patients with T2D that therapeutic drugs lowering insulin resistance and diet in the course of the disease treatment ...
Gene expressions of Mn-SOD and GPx-1 in streptozotocin-induced diabetes: effect of antioxidants
Sadi, Goekhan; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-07-01)
Increased oxidative stress and impaired antioxidant defense mechanisms are believed to be the important factors contributing to the pathogenesis and progression of diabetes mellitus. In this study, we have reported the effects of the streptozotocin-induced diabetes on the gene expression and the activities of two antioxidant enzymes, manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). We also studied the effects of two antioxidants, vitamin C and DL-alpha-lipoic acid (LA), on the system...

Objective: Chronically increased blood glucose levels may affect the vestibular system by damaging cells and neural structures in diabetes mellitus (DM). We aimed to search the effects of neurovascular degeneration on the vestibular system in type 2 DM and prediabetic patients by using air-conducted ocular (oVEMP) and cervical (cVEMP) vestibular evoked myogenic potentials. Design: Prospective study. Study sample: Thirty diabetic, 30 prediabetic patients, and 31 age-and sex-matched controls having no periphe...
Evaluation and discrimination of simvastatin-induced structural alterations in proteins of different rat tissues by FTIR spectroscopy and neural network analysis

Statins are commonly used to control hypercholesterolemia and to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Among the statins, Simvastatin is one of the most frequently prescribed statins because of its efficacy in reducing LDL lipoprotein cholesterol levels, its tolerability, and its reduction of cardiovascular risk and mortality. Conflicting results have been reported with regard to benefits (pleiotropic effects) as well as risks (adverse effects) of simvastatin on different soft and hard tissues. In the current st...
Oxidative damage and regulation of antioxidant enzymes in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats
Sadi, Gökhan; Güray, Tülin; Department of Biochemistry (2009)
Increased oxidative stress and impaired antioxidant defense mechanisms are believed to be the important factors contributing to the pathogenesis and progression of diabetes mellitus. The products of lipid peroxidation and protein oxidation reactions were all found to be elevated significantly (p<0.05) in diabetic animals and supplementing the animals either individually or in combination, with two powerful antioxidants DL-α-lipoic acid (LA) and vitamin C (VC) brought this increment toward the control values...
