APReM “ Protein intake and regulation of metabolism ”

Team APReM « Protein intake and regulation of metabolism»

Equipe APReM « Apports protéiques et régulation du métabolisme » (version française)


The APReM team's research focuses on assessing the consequences of variations in protein-energy intake on metabolism and physiology, in different physiological and pathological situations. We are particularly interested in the effects of modulations in the quantity and quality of proteins in different nutritional contexts (normal diets, western diets, deficient diets).

We seek to establish criteria and reference data on the satisfaction of protein, amino acid and energy requirements. In addition, our work takes into account individual characteristics of metabolic sensitivity to diets, within the framework of personalised (or precision) nutrition concepts. This work is carried out in the context of promoting healthy and sustainable nutrition, finding the right balance between animal and vegetable protein sources, and evaluating alternative protein sources to animal proteins.

Our studies are carried out on animals and humans in normal situations and in fragile or pathological situations. This work requires very specific expertise from the team, combining mechanistic and integrative physiological approaches involving the measurement of energy expenditure, metabolic flows using isotopic approaches, and research into molecular and cellular biomarkers of nutritional status. Part of the research effort is dedicated to the development of innovative methods of analysis and exploration.

The bioavailability of proteins and amino acids. Our research explores the digestion, bioavailability and quality of different sources of proteins of animal (meat, milk proteins), vegetable (oleaginous plants, legumes, cereals) or unicellular organisms (spirulina, yeasts) origin in physiological and pathophysiological situations (pancreatitis, bariatric surgery). New approaches and methods are being developed to answer these research questions. The double tracer method, a minimally invasive method for determining digestibility, has been evaluated in different programmes, in rats and in humans, particularly in the context of the evaluation of sunflower and pea proteins.

Protein and energy metabolic orientations and regulations. Our work evaluates the influence of the characteristics and variations in protein intake on the control of amino acid metabolism and on their partition between the anabolic pathways of protein synthesis and various compounds, their interconversion in the catabolic pathways of energy metabolism and their signal role in the liver, a key regulatory organ of energy and protein homeostasis. Our studies focus on the mechanisms responsible for metabolic orientations and the associated signalling pathways involving in particular hormones (insulin, leptin, ghrelin) and various growth factors involved in these processes (IGF1, FGF21, etc.) to ensure the maintenance of energy homeostasis when the intake of protein or certain amino acids decreases, in line with what is observed in predominantly plant-based diets. This work also evaluates the repercussions on food intake and the neuropeptides involved in the energy balance at the hypothalamic level as well as the receptors of the reward circuit at the level of the nucleus accumbens. Our work also explores metabolic and functional dysfunctions and processes related to physiopathological disorders, depending on individual sensitivities to weight gain and adiposity.

The search for biomarkers of protein and amino acid requirements. Finally, our work aims to identify relevant signatures for the evaluation of nutritional requirements in proteins and amino acids, the adequacy of dietary intakes to these requirements, and their role in the prevention of pathological drifts according to individuals. To this end, we are developing metabolomic approaches for the search for biomarkers of the need for essential amino acids. They are associated with biostatistical approaches for the analysis of complex data, enabling sample discrimination and the extraction of molecular markers. We are also working on the metabolic signatures of protein and essential amino acid requirements in relation to carbohydrate intake (quantity and quality of carbohydrates (glycemic index)) in order to determine the adequacy of the protein/carbohydrate ratio in the diet.
