Abstract 

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the initial reaction of the tricarboxylic acid cycle is catalyzed by the mitochondrial citrate synthase Cit1. The function of Cit1 has previously been studied mainly in terms of acetate utilization and metabolon construction. Here, we report the relationship between the function of Cit1 and apoptosis. Yeast cells with cit1 deletion showed a temperature-sensitive growth phenotype, and they displayed a rapid loss in viability associated with typical apoptotic hallmarks, i.e., reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation and nuclear fragmentation, DNA breakage, and phosphatidylserine translocation, when exposed to heat stress. On long-term cultivation, cit1 null strains showed increased potentials for both aging-induced apoptosis and adaptive regrowth. Activation of the metacaspase Yca1 was detected during heat- or aging-induced apoptosis in cit1 null strains, and accordingly, deletion of YCA1 suppressed the apoptotic phenotype caused by cit1 null mutation. Cells with cit1 deletion showed higher tendency toward glutathione (GSH) depletion and subsequent ROS accumulation than the wild type, which was rescued by exogenous GSH, glutamate, or glutathione disulfide (GSSG). These results led us to conclude that GSH deficiency in cit1 null cells is caused by an insufficient supply of glutamate necessary for biosynthesis of GSH rather than the depletion of reducing power required for reduction of GSSG to GSH.
