DINAMIX: Adipose tissues and vasculo-metabolic flexibility

Our research aims to characterize the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in metabolic adaptation in the context of natural and accelerated obesity-induced aging with a focus on the characterization of cellular and functional heterogeneity of white, beige and brown adipose depots in vascular-metabolic flexibility.

Metabolic function of microvascular endothelium: Heterogeneity, nutrient sensing and handling

 

Principal investigators : Anaïs Briot, Anne Bouloumié

Our work on native and primary microvascular endothelial cells from subcutaneous and visceral human and mouse adipose depots aims at 1) identifying the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in nutrient sensing and transport, 2) defining the inter- and intra-fat depot phenotypic and functional heterogeneity of endothelial cells and, 3) assessing the impact of obesity and aging on adipose depots endothelial cells metabolic function in human and mice.

From progenitor cells to mature adipocytes: Heterogeneity, differentiation and function

 

Principal investigators : Jean Galitzky, Anne Bouloumié

Our objectives are to define the intrinsic and extrinsic molecular mechanisms governing the heterogeneity of adipocytes and progenitor cells in terms of their fat (white, beige and brown) and myofibrogenic fate and their intra- and inter-depot niche in physiological and pathological contexts of natural or obesity accelerated aging.

Dynamics and adaptation of adipose depot:

VASCULOMetabolic flexibility and fasting

 

Principal investigator : Anaïs Briot

Using distinct fasting protocols, our objectives are 1) to identify dynamic combinations of markers (metabolomic, transcriptomic and metagenomic) of metabolic inflexibility, 2) to assess the beneficial and deleterious consequences on the phenotype and functionality of adipose depot cells, and 3) to identify cellular and molecular mechanisms that selectively mimic the beneficial effects of intermittent fasting according to sex, age and metabolic health.

Regulation of postprandial triglyceridemia

 

Coordinator : Xavier Collet

Postprandial hypertriglyceridemia (PPHT) is a recognized vascular risk factor. The original model of SR-B1-invalidated mice in the intestine (Cre-Villin, iSR-BI KO) will be studied in order to characterize the role of cholesterol-dependent SR-BI in the control of TGPP in relation to FXR and bile acids and the involvement of this metabolic pathway in the development of atherosclerosis under conditions of lipid-enriched diet.

Adaptability of lymphatic endothelium in metabolic diseases

 

 

Principal investigators : Florence Tatin, Anais briot, Anne Bouloumie

Florence Tatin is interested in understanding the adaptability and heterogeneity of lymphatic endothelium in metabolic diseases. We are interested to determine the spatial organization of the lymphatic network in adipose tissue microenvironment with new approaches of 3D imaging by light sheet microscopy (IMACTIV-3D). In addition, obesity is well-recognized as an important rick factor for lymphatic dysfunction. We aim to better understand how adipose tissue may influence and interact with lymphatic endothelial cells, and inversely how dysfunction of lymphatic vessels may alter cell-responses of the adipose tissue. Towards this aim, we develop single-cell RNAseq analysis of endothelial cells, and cell sorting strategy associated with cell biology and biochemistry approaches.
