The effect of dopamine infusion on insulin and glucagon secretion in man.

Abstract

The effect of dopamine on the release of insulin and glucagon was investigated in eight adult subjects. Dopamine infused iv at a rate of 4 mug/kg/min X 2 hr, unaccompanied by cardiovascular changes, induced a prompt and significant increase in plasma insulin and glucagon and in plasma glucose levels. These findings suggest that dopamine may stimulate both alpha and beta cells.
