In the field of diabetes research, many studies on cell therapy have been conducted using mesenchymal stem cells. This research was intended to shed light on the influence of canine adipose-tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cell conditioned medium (cAT-MSC CM) on in vitro insulin resistance models that were induced in differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes and the possible mechanisms involved in the phenomenon.
Gene expression levels of insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1) and glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4) were used as indicators of insulin resistance. Relative protein expression levels of IRS-1 and GLUT4 were augmented in the cAT-MSC CM treatment group compared to insulin resistance models, indicating beneficial effects of cAT-MSC to DM, probably by actions of secreting factors. With reference to previous studies on fibroblast growth factor-1 (FGF1), we proposed FGF1 as a key contributing factor to the mechanism of action. We added anti-FGF1 neutralizing antibody to the CM-treated insulin resistance models. As a result, significantly diminished protein levels of IRS-1 and GLUT4 were observed, supporting our assumption. Similar results were observed in glucose uptake assay.
Accordingly, this study advocated the potential of FGF-1 from cAT-MSC CM as an alternative insulin sensitizer and discovered a signalling factor associated with the paracrine effects of cAT-MSC.

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an important endocrine disease that accounts for a serious proportion of small animal medicine. In dogs, most DM patients are known to be type 1 DM (T1DM), which is usually well managed by exogenous insulin supplements. However, canine DM with insulin resistance, ‘poorly controlled T1DM’, not only needs expensive treatment, but also has poor prognosis. Several reports advocate that concurrent diseases such as obesity and inflammatory diseases are associated with insulin resistance in human DM patients [1–4]. A study in dogs also asserts the obesity is a cause of insulin resistance [5, 6]. However, the exact pathophysiology of insulin resistance development is not fully understood. Although insulin sensitizers could be an option for the treatment of uncontrolled T1DM, their possible adverse effects such as weight gain, bone loss, and congestive heart failure encourage further effort to develop new strategy for insulin resistance .
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stromal cells that have immunomodulatory and regenerative effects. Because they are relatively free from ethical issues, their therapeutic uses for various diseases including DM have been studied globally. Many studies have shown that they have advantageous effects in in vivo experiments using diabetic rodent models [8–13]. Until now, the known mechanisms of MSC actions when applied to DM are as follows: to differentiate directly into insulin-producing cells (IPCs), to regulate the immune system, and to secrete beneficial cytokines and growth factors . In particular, the paracrine effects of MSCs are thought to enhance insulin sensitivity .
Fibroblast growth factor-1 (FGF1) which is a member of the FGF family has been known to play crucial role in glucose homeostasis . Perry et al. reported that FGF1 and FGF19 improved glucose metabolism via down regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis . It has been documented that exogenous recombinant FGF1 (rFGF1) improved insulin sensitivity as well as normalized blood glucose levels in diabetic mice models . Recently, FGF1 is getting attention as a leading candidate of novel insulin sensitizer.
This study was designed to investigate the effects of canine adipose tissue-derived MSC-conditioned medium (cAT-MSC CM) on an in vitro induced insulin resistance model. To explore this, gene expression of markers related to glucose uptake were evaluated and the specific effective factors were discovered.
Characterization of cAT-MSCs
Differentiation into adipocytes and development of an insulin resistance model in 3T3-L1 adipocytes
Effects of cAT-MSC CM treatment on IRS-1 and GLUT4 expressions in the insulin resistance model
Reduced therapeutic effects of cAT-MSC CM with anti-FGF1 neutralizing antibody treatment
There have been doubts that exogenous insulin supplements for poorly controlled T1DM or T2DM were not enough to maintain the patient in a good condition. In this regard, researches into cell therapy using MSCs have been actively conducted. Mechanisms of their therapeutic effects to DM may be explained through various molecular processes. MSCs have the ability to directly differentiate into IPCs [19–21] and regulate the immune system to protect pancreatic islet cells from further destruction [22–26]. In addition, they possess powerful paracrine effects via secretion of a variety of cytokines and growth factors, enabling them to have anti-inflammatory effects and regulate insulin signalling and resulting in the improvement of insulin sensitivity [15, 27–29]. Several insulin sensitizers (such as biguanides and thiazolidinediones) were considered as therapeutics for DM with insulin resistance. However, long-term medication with these drugs can cause various adverse effects, which highlights the necessity for a new strategy.
In these experiments, we used 3T3-L1 adipocytes to develop an in vitro insulin resistance model. There have been diverse studies into inducing insulin resistance in 3T3-L1 cell lines. For example, various agents including TNF-α, Interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, free fatty acids, dexamethasone, and high insulin were used to make models of insulin resistance in 3T3-L1 adipocytes [30–35]. Lo et al. compared transcriptome analysis data of in vitro insulin resistance models and in vivo diet-induced obese mouse models. Considering their finding that the TNF-α and hypoxia co-treatment model most closely resembled in vivo alterations , we employed this model in our experiment. For the purpose of monitoring insulin resistance, we selected IRS-1 and GLUT4 as markers of glucose uptake ability [37, 38]. IRS-1 is a signalling protein that plays an important role at the initial part of insulin signalling pathway . GLUT4 is a transporter protein that is mainly expressed in the skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, and heart . Its up regulation and translocation to the cell membranes are thought to be critical steps of the insulin responsive increment of glucose uptake .
According to early studies, the effectiveness of MSC in DM originated from the potential to trans-differentiation towards IPCs [42, 43]. However, these theories were unable to give a good explanation for the disappointing results of in vivo cell tracking studies [44, 45]. Recent studies suggested that the secretory capacity of MSCs would play a crucial role for the therapeutic effects. Gao et al. isolated and injured pancreatic islets in vitro and then assessed islet regeneration after the treatment with MSC CM. They found that both β cell replication and islet progenitor differentiation were promoted and the PI3K / Akt signal pathway was involved . Another study revealed that AT-MSC CM enhanced glucose uptake in 3T3-L1 and C2C12 insulin resistance models . We also utilized cAT-MSC CM to explore the paracrine effect of cAT-MSC in our experiments.
FGF family is a signalling protein group composed of 18 members mediating a variety of biological functions in cell proliferation and developmental processes. Each family member performs unique actions by binding to FGF receptors, which results in activation of intracellular downstream cascades . FGF1, identified as a regulator of adipose tissue remodelling and metabolic homeostasis, is a downstream molecule of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ), which is a target of the thiazolidinedione class of insulin sensitizers . It has been established that rFGF1 injection normalized glucose levels and enhanced insulin sensitivity in diabetic mice. What was noteworthy is that the effect was insulin-dependent. Moreover, rFGF1 did not induce side effects that could be incurred by chronic use of traditional insulin sensitizers. Furthermore, genetically modified rFGF1 lacking the mitogen properties of rFGF1 had similar glucose lowering effects to some extent , intensifying the possibility of rFGF1 as a substitute of conventional insulin sensitizers. Based on the fact that MSC CM contains considerable amounts of FGF1 , we attempted to find out whether FGF1 from cAT-MSC CM was contributed to the advantageous effects of cAT-MSC CM on insulin resistant models.
In the present study, we evaluated gene expression levels of IRS-1 and GLUT4, which were considered as markers of insulin responsive glucose uptake. It was shown that reduced expression levels of these markers in 3T3-L1 insulin resistance models were restored after the treatment of cAT-MSC CM. This finding was consistent with previous research that suggested that MSC could improve insulin resistance through the paracrine signalling of various cytokines and growth factors . Since we suspected FGF1 would have a role in this effect, we measured FGF1 concentrations in cAT-MSC CM and added an anti-FGF1 neutralizing antibody into CM-treated 3T3-L1 insulin resistance models and assessed alterations of glucose uptake levels. The anti-FGF1 antibody group represented diminished expression levels of insulin resistance markers in comparison to the CM-treated group. This information led to the inference that FGF1 included in cAT-MSC CM is one of the mediators of the signalling pathways that induces therapeutic effects. Although we could not exclude the possibility that various cytokines and growth factors abundantly contained in cAT-MSC CM (other than FGF1) could affect the alterations in expression levels, it is worth mentioning that this study is the first work that revealed FGF1 as a specific mediator of insulin-sensitizing effects of cAT-MSC CM in DM.
We identified that the induced insulin resistance in 3T3-L1 cells was ameliorated in the presence of cAT-MSC CM by measuring mRNA and protein expression levels of IRS-1 and GLUT4. Additional data showed that the improvement was inhibited by the addition of anti-FGF1 neutralizing antibody, suggesting that FGF1 would act as a mediator of the beneficial effects of cAT-MSC CM. It is noteworthy that the present study is the first to reveal a specific functioning component of MSC CM in in vitro insulin resistance models, and further studies to find out other effective factors of MSC CM will be necessary.
Cell culture and characterization
Adipose tissue was obtained from three healthy dogs (1-year-old) during ovariohysterectomy at the Seoul National University Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital (SNU VMTH). The owners were provided an informed, written consent for research use. The procedure was also approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) of SNU and the protocol was performed in accordance with the approved guidelines. Canine adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (cAT-MSCs) were isolated and cultured as previously described . Before their use in this study, cells were characterized by their ability to express several stem cell markers using flow cytometry. Cells were suspended in 30 μl DPBS and 3 μl monoclonal antibodies against the following proteins: cluster of differentiation (CD) 29-Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), CD31-FITC, CD34-phycoerythrin (PE), CD73-PE (BD Biosciences, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA), CD44-FITC, CD45-FITC, and CD90-allophycocyanin (APC) (eBiosciences, San Diego, CA, USA)-conjugated antibodies. Non-stained cells were used as controls for autofluorescence. Cells were analysed by a BD FACSAria II system (BD Biosciences). Cellular differentiation was confirmed using PRIME-XV® Chondrogenic Differentiation Xeno-Free Serum-Free Medium (XSFM), PRIME-XV® Osteogenic Differentiation Serum-Free Medium (SFM), and PRIME-XV® Adipogenic Differentiation SFM (all from Irvine Scientific, Santa Ana, CA, USA) according to the manufacturer’s instructions followed by Alcian Blue staining, Alizarin Red staining, and Oil Red O staining, respectively.
In vitro cellular insulin resistance models
The in vitro induced insulin resistance model was developed in differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Murine 3T3-L1 cells were purchased from the Korean Cell Line Bank (Seoul, Korea). 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes were differentiated using 3T3-L1 Differentiation Kit (Sigma-Aldrich) and all the differentiation procedures performed following the manufacturer’s instructions. In brief, 3 × 105 cells were seeded in 6 well cell culture plate (SPL Life Science, Pocheon, Korea) and reached 70%, induction of insulin resistance was initiated. Cells were washed with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS; PAN Biotech, Aidenbach, Germany) and changed to serum-free Dulbecco’s modified Eagle’s medium: Nutrient Mixture F-12 (1:1) (DMEM / F12 (1:1); PAN Biotech). Insulin resistance was induced with treatment with both 40 ng/mL of tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α; PeproTech, Rocky Hill, NJ, USA) and 1% oxygen for 24 h. For hypoxic incubation, cells were placed in a hypoxic incubator (ViVAGEN, Sungnam, Korea) with the conditions of 1% O2 at 37 °C.
Preparation of cAT-MSC-conditioned medium (CM), and anti-fibroblast growth factor-1 (FGF1) antibody treatment
cAT-MSCs (3 × 105 cells / well) were seeded in 6-well plates and cultured in 3 mL of DMEM medium containing 2% fetal bovine serum (FBS; PAN Biotech) for 3 days, yielding conditioned medium. After 3 days, conditioned medium was harvested and centrifuged at 850 rpm for 3 min to remove cellular debris. After centrifugation, the supernatant was transferred to a conical tube and stored at − 80 °C until use. In addition, the concentration of FGF-1 in the cAT-MSC CM were determined by Fibroblast Growth Factor 1 ELISA Kit (Mybiosource, San Diego, CA, USA) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Anti-FGF1 neutralizing antibody (Abcam, Cambridge, MA, USA) was added to final concentrations of 0.9 μg / ml of culture medium.

List of primer for qRT-PCR
Western blot analysis
Total proteins were extracted from all cell groups using PRO-PREP Protein Extraction Solution (Intron Biotechnology) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The concentrations of the protein samples were measured using the Bio-Rad DC Protein Assay Kit (Bio-Rad, Hercules, CA, USA). The 30 μg of proteins were loaded and separated by sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and transferred to polyvinylidene difluoride membranes (Millipore, Billerica, MA, USA). The membranes were blocked by 5% non-fat dry milk in Tris-buffered saline containing 0.1% Tween 20 and incubated with primary antibodies against insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1, 1:500; Abcam) and glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4, 1:500; Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Santa Cruz, CA, USA) at 4 °C overnight. The membranes were incubated with secondary antibodies at room temperature for 1 h. The immunoreactive bands were visualised using enhanced chemiluminescence (Advansta, Menlo Park, CA, USA) and normalised to β-actin levels (Santa Cruz Biotechnology).
2-Deoxyglucose (2-DG) uptake assay
The differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes were treated with TNF-α and incubated in hypoxia for 24 h. After that, the 2-DG concentration was measured by Glucose Uptake Assay Kit (Abcam) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Measurements were performed at least three replicates and then averaged.
Data are shown as mean ± standard deviation. Statistical comparisons between groups were made with use of one-way ANOVA and an unpaired Student’s t test using the GraphPad Prism v.6.01 software (GraphPad Inc., La Jolla, CA, USA). P value of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
