Resveratrol induces apoptosis MH7A human rheumatoid arthritis synovial cells in a sirtuin 1-dependent manner.
Summary of "Resveratrol induces apoptosis MH7A human rheumatoid arthritis synovial cells in a sirtuin 1-dependent manner."
Resveratrol, a phytoalexin, reduced the viability of MH7A cells, a human rheumatoid arthritis synovial cell line. In the apoptosis assay, resveratrol increased TUNEL-positive cells and stimulated H2A.X phosphorylation. Resveratrol disrupted mitochondrial membrane potentials in MH7A cells and stimulated cytochrome c release from the mitochondria to the cytosol. Resveratrol activated caspase-3 and caspase-9 but not caspase-8 in MH7A cells. Resveratrol upregulated the expression of the NAD-dependent deacetylase sirtuin 1 mRNA and downregulated the expression of the Bcl-X(L) mRNA, and resveratrol-induced MH7A cell death, mitochondrial damage, and caspase-3/-9 activation were prevented by sirtinol, an inhibitor of sirtuin 1. The results of the present study show that resveratrol induces MH7A cell apoptosis by activating caspase-9 and the effector caspase-3 along mitochondrial disruption as a result of reduced Bcl-X(L) expression, allowing cytochrome c release from the mitochondria into the cytosol, in a sirtuin 1-dependent manner. This suggests that resveratrol could suppress hyperplasia of synovial cells, a critical factor of rheumatoid arthritis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
A chronic systemic disease, primarily of the joints, marked by inflammatory changes in the synovial membranes and articular structures, widespread fibrinoid degeneration of the collagen fibers in mesenchymal tissues, and by atrophy and rarefaction of bony structures. Etiology is unknown, but autoimmune mechanisms have been implicated.
