Abstract: <h4>Summary</h4>We aimed to study the depot-specific effect of adipose tissue on insulin sensitivity of skeletal muscle in vitro. Adipose tissue-conditioned medium (CM) was generated from visceral and subcutaneous fat from obese subjects. CM from visceral as compared to subcutaneous fat had higher concentrations of interleukin (IL)-6 (15-fold; P < 0.05) and IL-8 (8-fold; P < 0.05). CM from visceral fat (1:128 dilution) reduced insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in L6 myotubes by 19% (P < 0.05), an effect mediated by a nuclear factor kappa B (NFκB)/mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1)-dependent pathway and partially reversed by neutralizing IL-6. IL-6 at a concentration comparable to that in CM from visceral fat reduced insulin-stimulated glucose uptake by 53% (P < 0.05), an effect abolished by inhibiting NFκB or mTORC1. We demonstrated the utility of the CM-myotube system and identified IL-6 as a major cytokine mediating visceral fat-induced muscle insulin resistance.:
