Reports that ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) is required for full activation of Akt raise the hypothesis that ATM plays a role in insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) signalling through the Akt/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway. Differentiated C2C12 cells harbouring either ATM-targeting short hairpin RNA (shRNA) or non-targeting shRNA and myotubes from a C2C12 lineage previously exposed to empty vector lentivirus were incubated in the presence or absence of 10 nm IGF-1 followed by Western blot analysis. Parallel experiments were performed in isolated soleus muscles from mice expressing only one functional ATM allele (ATM(+/-)) compared with muscles from wild-type (ATM(+/+)) mice. Insulin-like growth factor 1 increased phosphorylation of Akt S473, Akt T308 and p70 S6 kinase (S6K) in myotubes expressing non-targeting shRNA and in empty vector controls, but the IGF-1 effects were significantly reduced in myotubes with shRNA-mediated ATM knockdown. Likewise, IGF-1-stimulated phosphorylation of Akt S473, Akt T308, mTOR and S6K was lower in isolated soleus muscles from ATM(+/-) mice compared with muscles from ATM(+/+) mice. The ATM inhibitor KU55933 prevented stimulation of S6K phosphorylation in C2C12 myotubes exposed to IGF-1, suggesting that decreased IGF-1 action is not limited to chronic conditions of decreased ATM function. Stimulation of insulin receptor substrate 1 tyrosine 612 phosphorylation by IGF-1 was unaffected by ATM deficiency, though IGF-1 phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase activity tended to be lower in muscle from ATM haploinsufficient mice compared with wild-type muscle. The data suggest that ATM is a modulator of IGF-1 signalling downstream of insulin receptor substrate 1 in skeletal muscle.
