The cardioprotective and anti-aging effects of red wine phenols, especially resveratrol (RSV), are well known. One of the most interesting biological properties of RSV and other naturally occurring phenols is the regulation of the expression and activity of SIRT1 (silent mating type information regulation 2 homolog). In view of the role of SIRT1 in acute and chronic renal diseases, we decided to study the effects of RSV-poor red wines on the expression of SIRT1 and HIF-2α (hypoxia-inducible factor 2α) to be compared with a nanomolar concentration of RSV or malvidin in proximal tubular cells of human kidneys (PTEC). Survival signaling systems activation (extracellular signal-regulated kinases, ERK and AMP-activated protein kinase, AMPK) was also investigated in PTEC incubated with wines. PTEC cells were incubated in the presence of RSV-poor wines diluted 1:1,000 for 30′, 90′, 120′ and 24 h. Expression of SIRT1 and HIF-2α, and activation of ERK and AMPK were analyzed by Western Blot. The data obtained show that wine modulates the expression of anti-aging molecular systems even when RSV is present in very small amounts.
