FAT/CD36, a plasma membrane fatty-acid transport protein, has been found on mitochondrial membranes, however it remains unclear where FAT/CD36 resides on this organelle or its functional role within mitochondria. We demonstrate, using several different approaches, that in skeletal muscle FAT/CD36 resides on the outer mitochondrial membrane (OMM). To determine the functional role of mitochondrial FAT/CD36 in this tissue we determined oxygen consumption rates in permeabilized muscle fibers in wild-type and FAT/CD36 KO mice using a variety of substrates. Despite comparable muscle mitochondrial content, as assessed by unaltered mtDNA, citrate synthase, b-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase, cytochrome c oxidase complex IV and respiratory capacities (maximal OXPHOS respiration) in WT and KO mice, palmitate supported respiration was 34% lower in KO animals. In contrast, palmitoyl-CoA supported respiration was unchanged. These data indicate that FAT/CD36 is key for palmitate-supported respiration. Therefore, we propose a working model of mitochondrial fatty-acid transport, in which FAT/CD36 is positioned on the OMM, upstream of long chain acyl-CoA synthetase, thereby contributing to the regulation of mitochondrial fatty acid transport. We further support this model by providing evidence that FAT/CD36 is not located in mitochondrial contact sites, and therefore does not directly interact with carnitine palmitoyltransferase-I as original proposed.
