Inositol polyphosphate 4-phosphatase type II (Type II inositol 3,4-bisphosphate 4-phosphatase) (EC 188.8.131.52)
To explore the associated proteins of the hypothalamus in aging rat models with intervention by Qiongyugao(QYG) based on iTRAQ technology, find out the target protein candidates and investigate the mechanism of delaying aging for Qiongyugao. The results showed that Qiongyugao increased GSH-Px activity in serum and SOD activity in liver; the total protein count identified by iTRAQ was 3 522, FDR<1%. There were 20 kinds of differential proteins between the blank group and model group; there were 295 kinds of differential proteins between model group and QYG group, and 40 kinds of them had a difference multiple ≥1.30 (the maximum value was 1.47). Compared with blank group, there were 14 kinds of proteins that were down-regulated in model group and up-regulated in QYG group. Combined with literature search and gene function search, 12 kinds of target protein candidates were screened out ： ST18, Ptprc, PSMB8, INPP4B, Shc3, Pik3r1, PIP5K1C, Nampt, Rasgrp2, Asah2, Pdpk1, and Map2k7. The expression of nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) in the hypothalamic inflammatory pathway was detected by Western blot and the results showed that its expression level in model group(0.96) was higher than that in control group(0.85), while its expression level in QYG group(0.89) was lower than that in model group. Q-PCR results showed that the relative mRNA expression levels of PIP5K1C and Ptprc in model group were significantly lower than those in blank group(P<0.01); while compared with the model group, the mRNA expression levels of PIP5K1C and Ptprc in QYG group were significantly increased(P<0.01) . This result was consistent with proteomics data. QYG may delay aging by regulating hypothalamic inflammatory reaction.
