Acrylamide, mainly formed in Maillard browning reaction during food processing, causes defects in liver circadian clock and mitochondrial function by inducing oxidative stress. Resveratrol is a polyphenol that has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. However, the preventive effects of resveratrol on acrylamide-triggered oxidative damage and circadian rhythm disorders are unclear at the current stage. The present research revealed that resveratrol pretreatment prevented acrylamide-induced cell death, mitochondrial dysfunction, and inflammatory responses in HepG2 liver cells. Acrylamide significantly triggered disorders of circadian genes transcription and protein expressions including Bmal1 and Cry 1 in primary hepatocytes, which were prevented by resveratrol pretreatment. Moreover, we found that the beneficial effects of resveratrol on stimulating Nrf2/NQO-1 pathway and mitochondrial respiration complex expressions in acrylamide-treated cells were Bmal1-dependent. Similarly, the inhibitory effects of resveratrol on inflammation signaling NF-κB were Cry1-dependent. In conclusion, these results demonstrated resveratrol could be a promising compound in suppressing acrylamide-induced hepatotoxicity and balancing the circadian clock.
