OBJECTIVE-Leptin released from adipocytes plays a key role in the control of food intake, energy balance, and glucose homeostasis. In addition to its central action, leptin directly affects pancreatic beta-cells, inhibiting insulin secretion, and, thus, modulating glucose homeostasis. However, despite the importance of glucagon secretion in glucose homeostasis, the role of leptin in a-cell function has not been studied in detail. In the present study, we have investigated this functional interaction. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-The presence of leptin receptors (ObR) was demonstrated by RT-PCR analysis, Western blot, and immunocytochemistry. Electrical activity was analyzed by patch-clamp and Ca(2+) signals by confocal microscopy. Exocytosis and glucagon secretion were assessed using fluorescence methods and radioimmunoassay, respectively. RESULTS-The expression of several ObR isoforms (a-e) was detected in glucagon-secreting alpha TC1-9 cells. ObRb, the main isoform involved in leptin signaling, ...

If you think of the structure of the genome as a house, CTCF is the scaffold dividing the space in rooms and shaping the building, says Thomas Graf, senior author of the study and Group Leader at the Center for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona. Studying CTCF helps us understand the glue that holds the genome together, and by proxy the role of 3-D genomic architecture in various fundamental processes in life.. CTCFs role in transdifferentiation is particularly controversial. This is when a cell reprograms itself into another type of cell without undergoing an intermediate state, such as pancreatic alpha cells turning into insulin-secreting beta cells after injury of the pancreas.. To study this, researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona developed a unique system where human B cells can be induced into becoming macrophages. To uncover CTCFs role in this process they used CRISPR genome editing tools to degrade the protein and study changes in genome organization as the ...
Transcription factor with important functions in the development of the eye, nose, central nervous system and pancreas. Required for the differentiation of pancreatic islet alpha cells. Competes with PAX4 in binding to a common element in the glucagon, insulin and somatostatin promoters (By similarity). Regulates specification of the ventral neuron subtypes by establishing the correct progenitor domains.
Hyperglucagonemia is a state of excess glucagon secretion. In healthy individuals, insulin has a suppressive effect on alpha-cell function and on glucagon secretion.
Previously, in rats with STZ-induced diabetes, we showed that antagonizing SSTR2 fully restores the glucagon and corticosterone counterregulation to insulin-induced hypoglycemia (10). The STZ model is not a genuine disease model for humans with T1D as an autoimmune disorder that requires continuous insulin treatment. In contrast, in STZ rats, hyperglycemia is induced chemically, and in our previous experiments they were not insulin-treated (10). Nonetheless, we assume that the hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemic clamp in this model closely mimics iatrogenic hypoglycemia in T1D (2). In the current study, we demonstrate for the first time that antagonizing the SSTR2 bound to α-cells in insulin-treated autoimmune type 1 diabetic BBDP rats (16-19) fully restores the glucagon counterregulation to insulin-induced hypoglycemia. This restoration in glucagon and corticosterone secretion in vivo has a major impact on improving glucose counterregulation in diabetic rats, because SSTR2a-treated animals did not ...
The fasting plasma glucagon level was measured in 39 normal subjects, 13 IDDM and 44 NIDDMpatients. The results showed that the glucagon level in both IDDs and NIDDs was significantly higherthan that in normal subjects (P0.001). In addition, 18 normal subjects and 30 NIDDM patientsunderwent a steamed-bread meal test, and the changes in glucagon level was also studied. The glucagonlevel in NIDDM patients was significantly elevated after the meal (P0.05 or less), but in normalsubjects there was no significant change (P0.05). Whereas the glucagon levels before and after themeal in NIDDs were significantly higher than those in normal subjects (P0.05 or less). The rise ofinsulin/glucagon ratio in NIDDs was retarded and much lower that that in normal subjects (P0.01 orless) The results indicate that there exists dysfunction of islet a-cells in diabetic patients, and it maycontribute to hyperglycemia. Insulin/glucagon ratio may be a more perfect index than sole insulin me-asurement in reflecting the

Background: Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) possesses insulinotropic and glucagonostatic properties, and, therefore, GLP-based antidiabetic therapies have been developed. Even though the insulinotropic potency of GLP-1 has been shown to be reduced in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), a small dose of GLP-1 is capable of normalizing the beta-cell responsiveness to glucose in these patients. The glucagonostatic potency of GLP-1 in patients with T2DM is not known, and, furthermore, the capability of GLP-1 to reestablish normal glucagon secretion in these patients remains to be elucidated.. Objective: To investigate the alpha-cell sensitivity to GLP-1 in patients with T2DM and to establish if GLP-1 is able to reestablish normal glucagon secretion in such patients.. Method: Ten patients with T2DM and ten healthy control subjects are clamped at their fasting blood glucose levels during GLP-1 infusions at increasing doses (0.25, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 pmol/kg/min) and placebo, respectively. ...
The pancreas is a large gland, situated in the peritoneal cavity, in the curve of the duodenum. It is the pancreas that is responsible for aiding the bodys endocrine system. (Darlington College 2011). The pancreas releases two endocrine hormones and it is these hormones that ensure the blood glucose levels within the body are constantly controlled. These hormones are glucagon and insulin and they are secreted from tiny clusters of cells within the pancreas, know as the islets of Langerhans. Glucagon is a hyper- glycaemic hormone, secreted by the islets alpha cells. Its main function is to increase the level of glucose in the blood. This is a vital process when blood sugar levels become low. Glucagon stimulates the liver to break down its excess glycogen into glucose. The glucose then passes into the blood stream and the homeostasis of blood glucose level is restored. Insulin is a hypo- glycaemic hormone that is secreted by the islets beta cells, in response to high blood glucose levels. Insulin ...
The dynamics and interrelationships of glucagon and insulin secretion were studied in the isolated perfused rat pancreas by utilizing a series of compounds that stimulate the release of both hormone. Leucine, arginine, prostaglandins F2α and E2, bovine growth hormone, and isoproterenol were administered individually over 60-second intervals. The release of glucagon preceded that of insulin in response to all compounds tested. The rapidity of glucagon release varied in response to different secretagogues; the time course of insulin release was fairly constant. The timing and the magnitude of glucagon and insulin release did not correlate statistically. Conclusions: (1) pancreatic alpha cells respond more rapidly than beta cells to the same stimulus; (2) antecedent release of glucagon is not the principal mediator of insulin release in response to stimuli common to both hormones; and (3) endogenous glucagon may at best modify the release of insulin evoked by certain secretagogues.. ...
Description: Description of target: Receptor for somatostatin-14 and -28. This receptor is coupled via pertussis toxin sensitive G proteins to inhibition of adenylyl cyclase. In addition it stimulates phosphotyrosine phosphatase and PLC via pertussis toxin insensitive as well as sensitive G proteins.

Under normal circumstances, the levels of insulin and glucagon are effectively counter balanced.. When you eat, your body metabolises the food quite rapidly and registers the presence of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids absorbed from the food. This causes the pancreatic beta cells to release insulin into your blood and inhibit the pancreatic alpha cells from secreting glucagon.. As the levels of insulin in your blood begin to rise they act on the liver, fat and muscle cells in particular causing them to absorb the incoming molecules of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids. The insulin acts to prevent the concentration of glucose, fatty and amino acids from increasing too greatly in the bloodstream.. In this way, your body maintains a steady blood-glucose concentration. This action occurs when you eat a properly balanced diet as opposed to the high carb diet of today. Unfortunately, where the diet is high in carbs (or there is just too much food) it has to go somewhere and inevitably, it is ...

Glucagon plays a major role in the regulation of glucose homeostasis during fed and fasting states. However, the mechanisms responsible for the regulation of pancreatic α cell mass and function are not completely understood. In the current study, we identified mTOR complex 1 (mTORC1) as a major regulator of α cell mass and glucagon secretion. Using mice with tissue-specific deletion of the mTORC1 regulator Raptor in α cells (αRaptorKO), we showed that mTORC1 signaling is dispensable for α cell development, but essential for α cell maturation during the transition from a milk-based diet to a chow-based diet after weaning. Moreover, inhibition of mTORC1 signaling in αRaptorKO mice and in WT animals exposed to chronic rapamycin administration decreased glucagon content and glucagon secretion. In αRaptorKO mice, impaired glucagon secretion occurred in response to different secretagogues and was mediated by alterations in KATP channel subunit expression and activity. Additionally, our data ...

Author(s): Gurlo, Tatyana; Butler, Peter C; Butler, Alexandra E | Abstract: Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and immunofluorescence (IF) staining techniques are important diagnostic tools of anatomic pathology in the clinical setting and widely used analytical tools in research laboratories. In diabetes research, they are routinely used for the assessment of beta- and alpha-cell mass, for assessment of endocrine cell distribution within the pancreas, for evaluation of islet composition and islet morphology. Here, we present the evaluation of IHC techniques for the detection of alpha-cells in human pancreatic tissue. We compared the Horse Radish Peroxidase (HRP)-based method utilizing DAB Peroxidase Substrate to the Alkaline Phosphatase (AP)-based method utilizing Vector Red substrate. We conclude that HRP-DAB staining is a robust and reliable method for detection of alpha-cells using either rabbit polyclonal or mouse monoclonal anti-glucagon antibodies. However, AP-Vector Red staining should be used with

Glucagon secretion by pancreatic α-cells is triggered by hypoglycemia and suppressed by high glucose levels; impaired suppression of glucagon secretion is a hallmark of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Here, we show that α-cell glucokinase (Gck) plays a role in the control of glucagon secretion. Using mice with α-cell-specific inactivation of Gck (αGckKO mice), we find that glucokinase is required for the glucose-dependent increase in intracellular ATP/ADP ratio and the closure of KATP channels in α-cells and the suppression of glucagon secretion at euglycemic and hyperglycemic levels. αGckKO mice display hyperglucagonemia in the fed state, which is associated with increased hepatic gluconeogenic gene expression and hepatic glucose output capacity. In adult mice, fed hyperglucagonemia is further increased and glucose intolerance develops. Thus, glucokinase governs an α-cell metabolic pathway that suppresses secretion at or above normoglycemic levels; abnormal suppression of glucagon secretion
Glucagon: A 29-amino acid pancreatic peptide derived from proglucagon which is also the precursor of intestinal GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDES. Glucagon is secreted by PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS and plays an important role in regulation of BLOOD GLUCOSE concentration, ketone metabolism, and several other biochemical and physiological processes. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilmans The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1511)
We have monitored electrical activity, voltage-gated Ca2+ currents, and exocytosis in single rat glucagon-secreting pancreatic A-cells. The A-cells were electrically excitable and generated spontaneous Na+- and Ca2+-dependent action potentials. Under basal conditions, exocytosis was tightly linked to Ca2+ influx through omega-conotoxin-GVIA-sensitive (N-type) Ca2+ channels. Stimulation of the A-cells with adrenaline (via beta-adrenergic receptors) or forskolin produced a greater than fourfold PKA-dependent potentiation of depolarization-evoked exocytosis. This enhancement of exocytosis was due to a 50% enhancement of Ca2+ influx through L-type Ca2+ channels, an effect that accounted for |30% of the total stimulatory action. The remaining 70% of the stimulation was attributable to an acceleration of granule mobilization resulting in a fivefold increase in the number of readily releasable granules near the L-type Ca2+ channels.
Toxicology Question of the Week. June 13, 2017. How does glucagon ameliorate the hypotension caused by beta-blocker toxicity?. Glucagon is a hormone secreted from pancreatic alpha cells. It has inotropic and chronotropic cardiac effects. When the beta receptor is stimulated, cAMP is increased and calcium influx (via L-type calcium channels) also increases. When the beta receptor is blocked, glucagon stimulates the same subcellular protein to increase cAMP production and increase calcium influx.. Glucagon administration is indicated for hypotension, bradycardia or conduction impairment. It may also be effective in treating hypotension in calcium channel blocker and other overdoses with cardiac toxicity.. IF dose is too high or pushed IV too fast, the patient will vomit. A bolus of 5-10 mg (150 mcg/kg) given over 10 minutes is less likely to have this side effect. Glucagons half-life is 6 minutes so a continuous infusion of 3 mg/hr (50-100 mcg/kg/hr) should follow this bolus.. References:. DeWitt ...

Plasma glucagon, insulin and glucose concentrations, and liver function tests were determined after an overnight fast in 24 normal subjects and 50 male cirrhotic patients. In cirrhotic patients with normal liver profiles, plasma glucagon remained within normal limits, irrespective of the presence of portasystemic anastomoses either pathological or surgical. Hyperglucagonemia was documented in presence of advanced liver dysfunction alone. Significant correlations were established between plasma glucagon and several liver function tests, i.e., serum bilirubin, albumin/globulin ratio, and prothrombin time. Moreover, hyperglucagonemia normalized on recovery from clinical manifestations and improvement in liver profile. Plasma insulin was raised primarily in the presence of a significant portasystemic shunting and maximum levels were observed in patients manifesting advanced liver dysfunction as well. However, no correlation was evident between plasma insulin and any of the liver function tests. Fasting

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of plasma glucagon levels on the blood glucose response to intravenous insulin administered continuously or in a pulsatile manner. Six type I diabetic patients proven to have no residual insulin secretion were investigated. Endogenous glucagon secretion was inhibited by a continuous intravenous infusion of somatostatin (100 micrograms/h) and replaced by exogenous infusions of the hormone at three different rates (7.5, 4.5, and 2.5 micrograms/h), resulting in three different plasma glucagon steady-state levels (i.e., approximately equal to 200, approximately equal to 130, and approximately equal to 75 pg/ml, respectively).

Diabetes mellitus has been a disease of increasing prevalence for nearly a century and is attributed to a dysregulation of hormones secreted from the pancreatic Islets of Langerhans; insulin from β-cells and glucagon from α-cells. Dysregulated α-cell glucagon secretion is responsible for the chronic hyperglycemia that accompanies diabetes and may be an important therapeutic avenue. Despite its importance, the normal molecular regulation of glucagon secretion is poorly understood. This work characterized a novel mechanism by which somatostatin and insulin coordinate to lower cAMP and phosphorylated PKA in the α-cells with rising glucose to suppress glucagon secretion in a Ca2+-independent manner. This decrease in cAMP/PKA normally arises from somatostatin preventing cAMP production by adenylyl cyclases via the Gαi subunit of the SSTR2 and from insulin receptor activation of phosphodiesterase 3B to drive degradation of cAMP in a glucose-dependent manner. Our data indicate that both ...

article{1ab52f88-4d01-45dd-a399-2e230c289278, abstract = {High-resolution capacitance measurements were used to explore the effects of the gut hormones GLP-I(7-36) amide [glucagon-like peptide I(7-36) amide] and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) on Ca2+-dependent exocytosis in glucagon-secreting rat pancreatic alpha-cells. Both peptides produced a greater than threefold potentiation of secretion evoked by voltage-clamp depolarizations, an effect that was associated with an approximately 35% increase of the Ca2+ current. The stimulatory actions of GLP-I(7-36) amide and GIP were mimicked by forskolin and antagonized by the protein kinase A (PKA)-inhibitor Rp-8-Br-cAMPS. The islet hormone somatostatin inhibited the stimulatory action of GLP-I(7-36) amide and GIP via a cyclic AMP-independent mechanism, whereas insulin had no effect on exocytosis. These data suggest that the alpha-cells are equipped with receptors for GLP-I and GIP and that these peptides, in addition to their ...
Anti-glucagon antibodies have shown some efficacy in animal models (Brand et al., 1994, 1996; Sørensen et al., 2006a); however, daily injections of high doses of antibodies were required (Sørensen et al., 2006). The lack of long-term efficacy of the antibody on blood glucose lowering is probably due to a compensatory mechanism involving oversecretion of endogenous glucagon in response to the reduction of glucagon receptor signaling. Increases in circulating glucagon levels have been reported with all modalities blocking the glucagon signaling pathway, which presents technical challenges for both small-molecule GCGR inhibitors and glucagon-neutralizing mAb approaches.. Despite rising glucagon levels, treatment with neutralizing hGCGR mAbs maintained glucose-lowering efficacy. These anti-GCGR mAbs have several desirable attributes as potential therapeutic agents compared with previously pursued approaches. First, mAb B showed a higher affinity than glucagon to the GCGR (Kd = 36 pM versus Kd = ...
The body probably uses cross talk between cells to control everything. The pancreas has beta cells which secrete insulin when glucose levels are too high. It also contains alpha cells which secrete glucagon when glucose levels are too low. The cells are right next door to each other. As well as both types of cell monitoring glucose it seems as if the glucagon secreting cells look at the local amount of insulin being secreted and use this as a signal to moderate their glucagon secretion. There is no point in trying to raise blood sugar levels with glucagon when the body is producing lots of insulin due to a recent meal intake. Its probably a fine tuning mechanism which can be over ridden by catastrophic changes in glucose. The beta amyloid is debris which blocks this fine tuning mechanism and results in over secretion of glucagon which raises blood glucose inappropriately ...

Exocytosis is the process by means of cells secrete different kinds of molecules content in a cytoplasmic vesicle from cytoplasm to extracellular (intersticial) space. It occurs in all the eukaryotic cells and it implies the fusion of the vesicular membrane with the cytoplasmic membrane. Exocytosis is very specialized in secreting cells and neurons.. - Pynocytosis is the process by means of cells ingest liquid particles or dissolved particles from extracellular (intersticial) space to cytoplasm. This process is very common in cells with nutritive function (as cells of the intestinal mucose).. Alpha cells produce and secrete glucagon, so the process is exocytosis. At better, in your textbook call them exopynocytosis because alpha cells can carry out the two processes independently. They secrete glucagon by exocytosis, but they can ingest dissolved substances by pynocytosis. Do you understand what I mean? ...
