Bottom Line: In mature adipocytes, only 10 µM of quercetin reduced triacylglycerol content.Lipogenic FAS expression and activity were reduced at this dose.Quercetin, in the range of serum concentrations, is able to inhibit adipogenesis, but higher doses, at least 10 µM, are needed to reduce fat accumulation in mature adipocytes.

ABSTRACT

Scope: To determine whether doses of quercetin in the range of serum concentrations exert any effect on triacylglycerol accumulation in maturing preadipocytes and mature adipocytes. The influence on the expression of adipogenic markers as well as on gene expression and activity of enzymes involved in triacylglycerol metabolism were assessed.

Methods and results: 3T3-L1 preadipocytes were treated during differentiation and mature adipocytes for 24 hours with low doses (0.1-10 µM) of quercetin. Triacylglycerol content in both cell types and free fatty acid and glycerol in the incubation medium of mature adipocytes were measured spectrophotometrically. Gene and protein expression were assessed by RT-PCR and Western blot. LPL and FAS activities were quantified. During differentiation quercetin reduced triacylglycerol content at doses from 0.5 to 10 µM. 1 µM of quercetin reduced C/EBPβ gene expression, SREBP1 mature protein levels, and PPARγ gene expression. 10 µM of quercetin reduced LPL gene expression and PPARγ and SREBP1c expression. In mature adipocytes, only 10 µM of quercetin reduced triacylglycerol content. Lipogenic FAS expression and activity were reduced at this dose.

Conclusion: Quercetin, in the range of serum concentrations, is able to inhibit adipogenesis, but higher doses, at least 10 µM, are needed to reduce fat accumulation in mature adipocytes.

Effects of 10 μM of quercetin (Q10) on the gene expression of adiponectin, leptin, visfatin, and apelin in 3T3-L1 mature adipocytes treated for 24 h. Values are means ± SEM. Comparisons between each treatment and the controls were analyzed by Student's t-test.
