The Crabtree effect is defined as a rapid glucose-induced repression of mitochondrial oxidative metabolism and has been described in yeasts and tumor cells. Using plate-based respirometry, we identified the Crabtree effect in normal (non-tumor) kidney proximal tubule epithelial cells (PTEC) but not in other kidney cells (podocytes or mesangial cells) or mammalian cells (C2C12 myoblasts). Glucose-induced repression of respiration was prevented by reducing glycolysis at the proximal step with 2-deoxyglucose and partially reversed by pyruvate. The late-stage glycolytic intermediates glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate, 3-phosphoglycerate, and phosphoenolpyruvate, but not the early-stage glycolytic intermediates or lactate, inhibited respiration in permeabilized PTEC and kidney cortex mitochondria, mimicking the Crabtree effect. Studies in diabetic mice indicated a pattern of increased late-stage glycolytic intermediates consistent with a similar pattern occurring in vivo. Our results show the unique presence of the Crabtree effect in kidney PTEC and identify the major mediators of this effect.
