ABSTRACT

Endothelial dysfunction is tightly associated with cardiovascular complications in diabetic patients. This study aims to investigate the effects of mangiferin on the regulation of endothelial homeostasis under endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress) conditions. High glucose (25 mmol/L) exposure induced ER stress and promoted ROS production in endothelial cells. Mangiferin effectively inhibited ER stress-associated oxidative stress by attenuating IRE1α phosphorylation and reducing ROS production. In response to ER stress, thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP) expression increased, followed by NLRP3 inflammasome activation and increased IL-1β secretion. Mangiferin treatment attenuated the expressions of TXNIP and NLRP3 and reduced IL-1β and IL-6 production, demonstrating its inhibitory effects on TXNIP/NLRP3 inflammasome activation. NLRP3 inflammasome activation is responsible for mitochondrial cell death. Mangiferin restored the loss of the mitochondrial membrane potential (Δψm) and inhibited caspase-3 activity, and thereby protected cells from high glucose-induced apoptosis. Moreover, mangiferin inhibited ET-1 secretion and restored the loss of NO production when cells were exposed to high glucose. Mangiferin enhanced AMPK phosphorylation and AMPK inhibitor compound C diminished its beneficial effects, indicating the potential role of AMPK in its action. Our work showed the beneficial effects of mangiferin on the improvement of endothelial homeostasis and elucidated the molecular pathway through which mangiferin ameliorated endothelial dysfunction by inhibition of ER stress-associated TXNIP/NLRP3 inflammasome activation in endothelial cells. These findings demonstrated the beneficial effects of mangiferin on the regulation of endothelial homeostasis and indicated its potential application in the management of diabetic cardiovascular complications.
