To elucidate the bioactive property of the dietary antioxidant curcumin, we examined tissue distribution and the gene expression- and lipidomic-profiles in epididymal white adipose tissue (eWAT) of the diet-induced obese mice. Dietary intake of curcumin (0.1% W/W) didnt affect the eWAT weight and the plasma lipid levels but reduced the levels of lipid peroxidation marker in eWAT. Curcumin was a slightly accumulated in eWAT and altered the gene expression associated with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 (EIF2) signaling. Curcumin suppressed the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-related eIF2 phospholyration, the accumulation of macrophages and the expression of oxidative stress-sensitive transcription factor NF-B p65 and leptin, whereas anti-inflammatory effect wasnt enough to reduce the TNF- and IFN- levels. Lipidomic- and gene expression analysis suggests that curcumin reduced the contents of some diacylglyverols (DAGs) and DAG derived glycerophospholipids by suppressing the expressions of lipogenesis-related glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 1 and lipolysis-related adipose triglyceride lipase.
