単純ですが結構味わい深い報告だと思います。

The intravenous anesthetic propofol inhibits lipopolysaccharide-induced hypoxia-inducible factor 1 activation and suppresses the glucose metabolism in macrophages

Journal of Anesthesia

Abstract

Purpose. Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a master transcription factor of hypoxia-induced gene expression. Anesthetics and perioperative drugs have been reported to affect HIF-1 activity. However, the effect of propofol on HIF-1 activity is not well documented. In this study, we investigated the effect of propofol on HIF-1 activation using the macrophage-differentiated THP-1 cells.

Methods. Cells were exposed to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) under 20% or 1% O2 conditions with or without propofol treatment. The cell lysate were subjected to Western blot analysis using anti-HIF-1α and HIF-1β antibodies. HIF-1-dependent gene expression was investigated by quantitative real time reverse-transcriptase PCR analysis and luciferase assay. The amount of cellular lactate and ATP were assayed.

Results. Propofol suppressed HIF-1α protein accumulation induced by LPS but not by hypoxia in the THP-1 cells in a dose-dependent manner by inhibiting the neo-synthesis of HIF-1α protein. Induction of the HIF-1 downstream gene expression including glucose transporter 1, enolase 1, lactate dehydrogenase A, pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase-1 and vascular endothelial growth factor was inhibited by propofol. Propofol suppressed LPS-induced lactate accumulation and ATP content in THP-1 cells.

Conclusion. Our experimental results indicate that propofol inhibits HIF-1 activation and downstream genes expression induced by LPS and suppressed HIF-1-dependent glucose metabolic reprogramming. HIF-1 suppression by propofol in macrophage may explain molecular mechanisms behind the inhibitory effect of propofol on cellular inflammatory responses.
