GSE129843: Short-Term Time-Restricted Feeding Alters Rhythmicity of Lipid and Amino Acid Metabolites in Overweight Men

Bulk RNA sequencing

Time-restricted feeding improves metabolic health independently of dietary macronutrient composition or energy restriction. To understand the mechanisms underpinning the effects of time-restricted feeding, we investigated the metabolic and transcriptomic profile of skeletal muscle and serum samples from 11 overweight/obese men. In muscle, 4-10% of transcripts and 14% of metabolites were periodic, with the amplitude of the metabolites lower after time-restricted feeding. Core clock genes were unaltered by either intervention, while time-restricted feeding induced rhythmicity of genes related to lipid and amino acid transport. In serum, 49-65% of the metabolites had diurnal rhythms across both conditions, with the majority being lipids. Time-restricted feeding shifted the skeletal muscle metabolite profile from predominantly lipids to amino acids. Our results show time-restricted feeding differentially affects the amplitudes and rhythmicity of serum and skeletal muscle metabolites, and regulates the rhythmicity of genes controlling lipid and amino acid transport, without perturbing the core clock.
