Title: Enhanced /3-adrenergic receptors in the brain and pancreas during pancreatic regeneration in weanling rats
Author: Ani Das, V; Remya, Robinson; Paulose, C S
Abstract: Adrenergic stimulation has an inyortant role in the pancreatic It-cell proliferation and insulin secretion. In the present study. we have investigaled how sympathetic system mgulales the panrrealic n I rnerui nr ht an:ilyiing I'pinephi inn 1111 ), Norepinephrinc (NE) and /1-adrenergic receptor changes in the brain as (%eli is in the I swirls. Fill and NII showed a significant decrease in the brain regions, pancreas and plasma :rt 72Ius iller partial prurcrealectonty. We observed an increase in the circulating insulin levels at 72 hrs. Scatchard analysis using I CHI propranolol showed a significant increase in the number of loth the low affinity and high affinity t-adrenergic receplors in cerebral cortex and hypothalamus of partially pancreatectornised rats during peak DNA synthesis. The affinity of the receptors decrea,ed significantly in the low and high affinity receptors of cerebral cortex and the high affinity hypothalamic receptors. In file brain stein, low affinity receptors were increased significantly during regeneration whereas there was no change in the high affinity receptors. The pancreatic ff-adrenergic receptors were also up regulated at 72 firs after partial panerealectony. In vitro studies showed that /i-adrenergic receptors are positive regulators of islet cell proliferation and insulin secretion. Thus our results suggest that the t-adrenergic receptors are functionally enhanced during pancreatic regeneration, which in turn increases pancreatic ft-cell proliferation an(hilisulin secretion in wean hug rats.
