Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag:

Obesity causes alterations in the energy metabolism of the heart which can lead to heart failure. Using diet-induced obese mice, we show that dietary supplementation with Calanus oil was able to prevent such obesity-related shifts in myocardial metabolism and to protect the heart towards experimentally induced myocardial infarction. Using a cardiomyocyte cell line, we also found that small amounts of hydrolyzed wax ester from Calanus oil, containing a unique composition of (mono- and poly-unsaturated) fatty acids and fatty alcohols, almost completely rescued the cells from nutritional stress induced by the saturated fatty acid, palmitate. Further analyses suggest that this protective effect was due to alleviation of so-called endoplasmatic reticulum (ER) stress. Finally, we showed that Calanus oil antagonized some of the obesity-induced alterations in the gut microbiota. Collectively, these data suggest that Calanus oil can be an alternative to anti-obesity/anti-diabetic drugs.
