Effect of insulin on the decreased beta-adrenergic responses of duodenum and atrium isolated from streptozotocin diabetic rats

1. Decreased beta-adrenergic responses have been reported in both gastro-intestinal tract and atrium of experimentally-induced diabetic rats. The present study was undertaken to investigate in vitro effects of insulin on decreased beta-adrenergic responses of the duodenum and atrium from streptozotocin-diabetic rats. 2. Insulin incubation (16.67 micrograms/ml) in bathing medium for 5 hr enhanced the decreased beta-adrenergic responses in the diabetic rat duodenum, but not those in the diabetic atrium. Incubation of bovine insulin with anti-bovine insulin antibody in the test-tube inhibited the improving effect of insulin on the decreased beta-adrenergic responses of diabetic rat duodenum. 3. In vitro treatment with the same dose of bovine insulin in bathing medium caused a decrease in the beta-adrenergic responses of the atria from both non-diabetic and diabetic rats. Anti-bovine insulin antibody also abolished the inhibitory effect of insulin on the rat atria. 4. These results strongly suggest that the experimental diabetes affects beta-adrenergic responsiveness of the rat gastro-intestinal tract through a different mechanism from that of the rat myocardium.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
