|Abstract||Oligonucleotide microarrays were used to define oleic acid (OA)-regulated gene expression and proteomic technology to screen protein kinases in MIN6 insulinoma cells. The effects of oxidative stress caused by OA and potential protective effects of N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), a scavenger of reactive oxygen species (ROS), on global gene expression and beta-cell function were investigated. Long-term exposure of MIN6 cells to OA led to a threefold increase in basal insulin secretion, a 50% decrease in insulin content, an inhibition of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS), and a twofold increase in the level of ROS. The addition of NAC normalized both the OA-induced insulin content and ROS elevation, but it failed to restore GSIS. Microarray studies and subsequent quantitative PCR analysis showed that OA consistently regulated the expression of 45 genes involved in metabolism, cell growth, signal transduction, transcription, and protein processing. The addition of NAC largely normalized the expression of the OA-regulated genes involved in cell growth and differentiation but not other functions. A protein kinase screen showed that OA regulated the expression and/or phosphorylation levels of kinases involved in stress-response mitogen-activated protein kinase, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, and cell cycle control pathways. Importantly, these findings indicate that chronic OA exposure can impair beta-cell function through ROS-dependent and -independent mechanisms.|
