Abstract: Remodeling of mitochondrial metabolism is implicated in progression of cancer. Conversely, however, mitochondrial dysfunction and signaling play key roles in the induction of cell death. Apoptosis is induced following interleukin 3 (IL-3) depletion in mouse pro-myeloid 32D cells. Molecular signals of cell death are absent in 32D cells after short-term IL-3 deprivation (8 h). We addressed the question if changes in mitochondrial function can be detected by high-resolution respirometry as an early event in the induction of apoptosis. Respiration of living 32D cells was suppressed by 10 to 55% following 8 h removal of IL-3, but remained more stable in 32D cells expressing the v-RAF oncogene related to CRAF. In 32D cells deprived of IL3, succinate-supported respiration did not decline significantly, but respiratory capacities of the NADH-pathway and the combined NADH- and succinate-linked (NS) pathway were decreased compared to cells grown in the presence of IL-3. This was consistent with respiratory control exerted by impaired Complex IV activity, since there was not even the slightest excess Complex IV capacity above NS-pathway capacity. In contrast, electron flow reached only 60% when supported by succinate alone through Complexes II, III and IV, and was therefore relatively insensitive to Complex IV injuries up to a threshold of 40 % inhibition. After IL-3 depletion respiration increased by 15% following addition of cytochrome c, which provides a marker of mitochondrial outer membrane leakage, thus indicating mitochondrial fragility. Our results highlight a novel link between the key mitogenic and survival kinase CRAF and mitochondrial energy homeostasis.
