The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of mitochondrial metabolism on high glucose/palmitate (HG/PA)-induced INS-1 beta cell death. Long-term treatment of INS-1 cells with HG/PA impaired energy-producing metabolism accompanying with depletion of TCA cycle intermediates. Whereas an inhibitor of carnitine palmitoyl transferase 1 augmented HG/PA-induced INS-1 cell death, stimulators of fatty acid oxidation protected the cells against the HG/PA-induced death. Furthermore, whereas mitochondrial pyruvate carboxylase inhibitor phenylacetic acid augmented HG/PA-induced INS-1 cell death, supplementation of TCA cycle metabolites including leucine/glutamine, methyl succinate/α-ketoisocaproic acid, dimethyl malate, and valeric acid or treatment with a glutamate dehydrogenase activator, aminobicyclo-heptane-2-carboxylic acid (BCH), significantly protected the cells against the HG/PA-induced death. In particular, the mitochondrial tricarboxylate carrier inhibitor, benzene tricarboxylate (BTA), also showed a strong protective effect on the HG/PA-induced INS-1 cell death. Knockdown of glutamate dehydrogenase or tricarboxylate carrier augmented or reduced the HG/PA-induced INS-1 cell death, respectively. Both BCH and BTA restored HG/PA-induced reduction of energy metabolism as well as depletion of TCA intermediates. These data suggest that depletion of the TCA cycle intermediate pool and impaired energy-producing metabolism may play a role in HG/PA-induced cytotoxicity to beta cells and thus, HG/PA-induced beta cell glucolipotoxicity can be protected by nutritional or pharmacological maneuver enhancing anaplerosis or reducing cataplerosis.
