Abstract Uncoupling proteins (UCPs) have been reported to decrease the mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by lowering the mitochondrial inner membrane potential (MMP). We have previously shown that UCP3 expression is positively regulated by insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). The aim of this study was to investigate the role of UCPs in IGF-1-mediated protection from hyperglycemia-induced oxidative stress and neurodegeneration. Human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells were differentiated with retinoic acid for 6 days, after which exposure to 8, 30, or 60 mM glucose with or without 10 nM IGF-1 was started. After 48-72 hr, the number of neurites per cell, UCP3 protein expression, MMP, and intracellular levels of ROS and total glutathione were examined. These studies showed that glucose concentration-dependently reduced the number of neurites per cell, with a 50\% reduction at 60 mM. In parallel, the UCP3 protein expression was down-regulated, and the MMP was raised 3.5-fold, compared with those in cells incubated with 8 mM glucose. Also, the ROS levels were increased, showing a twofold maximum at 60 mM glucose. This was accompanied by a twofold elevation of total glutathione levels, confirming an altered cellular redox state. IGF-1 treatment prevented the glucose-induced neurite degeneration and UCP3 down-regulation. Furthermore, the MMP and the intracellular levels of ROS and glutathione were normalized to those of control cells. These data indicate that IGF-1 may protect from hyperglycemia-induced oxidative stress and neuronal injuries by regulating MMP, possibly by the involvement of UCP3. Copyright 2004 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
