We investigated cell death during glucose deprivation in rat cardiomyocyte-derived H9c2 cells. Electron microscopic analysis revealed accumulation of autophagic vacuoles during glucose deprivation. The addition of 3-methyladenine or LY294002, which are known to inhibit autophagosome formation, reduced cell death while Z-VAD-FMK, a caspase inhibitor, slightly affected cell death. Thus, cell death during glucose deprivation is not type I programmed cell death (apoptotic cell death) but type II programmed cell death (autophagic cell death). Moreover, we found that both insulin-like growth factor-I and the adenovirus-mediated overexpression of wild-type class I PI 3-kinase accelerated cell death as well as accumulation of autophagic vacuoles during glucose deprivation while dominant-negative PI 3-kinase reduced these phenomena. The results indicate that IGF-I/PI 3-kinase accelerates the accumulation of autophagic vacuoles and subsequent autophagic cell death during glucose deprivation, revealing the opposing role of IGF-I/PI 3-kinase in two distinct types of programmed cell death (apoptotic and autophagic cell death).
