Abstract: Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are both tightly associated with impaired glucose control. While both pathologies stem from different mechanisms, a reduction in insulin action coincides with drastic metabolic dysfunction in skeletal muscle and metabolic inflexibility. However, the underlying explanation for this response remains poorly understood, particularly since it is difficult to distinguish the role of attenuated insulin action from the detrimental effects of reactive lipid accumulation which impair mitochondrial function and promote reactive oxygen species (ROS) emission. We therefore utilized streptozotocin to examine the effects of acute insulin deprivation, in the absence of a high lipid / nutrient excess environment, on the regulation of mitochondrial substrate sensitivity and ROS emission. The ablation of insulin resulted in reductions in absolute mitochondrial oxidative capacity, ADP-supported respiration, and reduced the ability for malonyl-CoA to inhibit carnitine palmitoyl-transferase I (CPT-I) and suppress fatty acid-supported respiration. These bioenergetic responses coincided with increased mitochondrial derived H2O2 emission and lipid transporter content, independent of major mitochondrial substrate transporter proteins and enzymes involved in fatty acid oxidation. Together, these data suggest that attenuated/ablated insulin signalling does not affect mitochondrial ADP sensitivity, while the increased reliance on fatty acid oxidation in situations where insulin action is reduced may occur as a result of altered regulation of mitochondrial fatty acid transport through CPT-I.
