Abstract

We investigated the effect of GLPs on glucose uptake in isolated rat adipocytes. GLP-1(7-36)amide significantly enhanced glucose uptake in the presence of 1 nM insulin. GLP-1(7-36)amide at 15 nM increased glucose uptake maximally by 56.4% as compared with 1 nM insulin alone (P < 0.01). In contrast, with less than 1 nM insulin or without insulin GLP-1(7-36)amide showed no effect on glucose uptake. Full-sequence GLP-1(1-37) at 15 nM in the presence of 1 nM insulin increased glucose uptake by 24.6% as compared with 1 nM insulin alone (P < 0.05). GLP-2 showed no effect on glucose uptake. Further, we examined the effect of GLP-1(7-36)amide on cAMP content in isolated rat adipocytes. Insulin at 1 nM caused a significant decrease of cAMP content. The combination of 15 nM GLP-1(7-36)amide and 1 nM insulin caused a further reduction of cAMP content. These data indicate that GLP-1(7-36)amide possesses augmentative effects on insulin action in isolated rat adipocytes. Furthermore, it is suggested that the stimulatory effect of GLP-1(7-36)amide occurs through the reduction of intracellular cAMP content.
