Endogenous hydrogen sulfide mediates anti-aging benefits of dietary restriction (DR). However, it is unclear how H2S production is regulated by pathways related to DR. Due to the importance of mTORC1 pathway in DR, we investigated the effects of Sch9, a yeast homolog of mammalian S6K1 and a major substrate of mTORC1 on H2S production in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We found that inhibition of the mTORC1-Sch9 pathway by SCH9 deletion, rapamycin or myriocin treatment resulted in a dramatic decrease in H2S production. Although deficiency of SCH9 did not alter the intracellular level of methionine, the intracellular level of cysteine increased in Δsch9 cells. The expression of CYS3 and CYS4, two transsulfuration pathway genes encoding cystathionine gamma-lyase (CGL) and cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS), were also decreased under mTORC1-Sch9 inhibition. Overexpression of CYS3 or CYS4 in Δsch9 cells or WT cells treated with rapamycin rescued the deficiency of H2S production. Finally, we also observed a reduction in H2S production and lowering of both mRNA and protein levels of CGL and CBS in cultured human cells treated with rapamycin to reduce mTORC1 pathway activity. Thus, our findings reveal a probably conserved mechanism in which H2S production by the transsulfuration pathway is regulated by mTORC1-Sch9 signaling.
