Dr. Sarwar Hashmi, Ph. D. (University of Maryland, College Park, MD)-1994 currently works in the Developmental Biology Lab, Rutgers Center for Vector Biology, Rutgers University, USA. There are three complementary research activities in his lab that address the overall goal of identifying genetic effects on metabolic traits related to the obesity risk:
1: The Role for KLFs in FA synthesis and β-oxidation: Fat storage is coordinately regulated through signaling networks that integrate biochemical pathways of fat deposition, mobilization and utilization. Excessive storage of fat in the form of triglycerides in adipocytes results in obesity is a growing global health problem leading to increased prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the human population. They are particularly interested in the role that Kruppel-like family of transcription factors, KLFs play in the regulation of lipid metabolic enzymes to fat deposition, mobilization and utilization. Recent studies from laboratory have shown that a member of this family, klf-3 is one of the important regulators of two key processes in lipid metabolism; fatty acid ?-oxidation and lipoprotein assembly and transport. Their efforts include investigation of how klf interacts with lipid metabolism regulatory machinery, characterization of specific pathway targets, and genetic manipulation of these targets to better understand the pathology of excess fat accumulation in human. They take advantage of the availability of Caenorhabditis elegans models, its genomic databases, and the availability of mutants associated with fat metabolism in order to understand the complexity of fat metabolism. Many metabolic genes are potential targets under the control of KLF.
2: The role for KLFs in lipoprotein assembly and secretion: Dietary lipids are absorbed from the small intestines and transported to various organs and tissues to maintain lipid/cholesterol homeostasis. For transportation, the assembly of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins requires the formation of a complex between apolipoprotein B (apoB), a structural protein, and microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP), an endoplasmic resident chaperone. MTP and apoB interact during lipoprotein assembly to facilitate lipoprotein production and therefore genetic loss of either apoB or MTP results in the inability of both the liver and intestine to secrete very low density lipoprotein (VLDL). They are interested in the mechanisms underlying lipoprotein assembly and transport, to better understand the regulatory role of klf in these processes, and identify novel targets for new therapies.
Project 3: Lipid metabolism dysfunction associated tumor formation: The dysfunctional lipid metabolism that results in excess fat accumulation is a growing cause of cancer development. However, the changes occurred by builds up of fat that may lead to tumor development remain poorly understood. Excess fat deposits in adipose tissue and/or the defects in their ability to metabolize fatty acids, results in insulin resistance. Recently, insulin resistance, and increased production of insulin-like growth factors have been reported to upsurge the risk of cancer. They have demonstrated that suppression of Ce-klf-1 activity results in fat accumulation and increased cell death. The role of KLF-1 in fat metabolism and its function as a tumor suppressor provides a conceptual framework associating fat accumulation with tumor growth. Our hypothesis is that KLF-1 acts as a major regulator of events in intestine, with alterations in KLF-1 activity leading, through as yet unspecified mechanisms, to fat accumulation and increased apoptosis.
