Summary, in English

The cAMP-elevating pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) stimulates insulin release in pancreatic B-cells. Here, we have investigated its potentiating action in rat insulinoma INS-1 cells. In intact cells, PACAP-27 (100 nM) stimulated glucose-induced insulin secretion by >60%. Using the patch-clamp technique with single-cell exocytosis monitored as increases in cell capacitance, we observed that at 10 mM and 20 mM extracellular glucose, PACAP-27 acted mainly by a >50% enhancement of depolarization-elicited Ca(2+) entry, whereas at low (3 mM) glucose, the predominant effect of the peptide was a twofold increase in Ca(2+) sensitivity of insulin exocytosis. The latter effect was mimicked by glucose itself in a dose-dependent fashion. PACAP-27 exerts a prolonged effect on insulin secretion that is dissociated from changes of cytoplasmic cAMP. Whereas an elevation of cellular cAMP content (135%) could be observed 2 min after addition of PACAP-27, after 30 min preincubation with the peptide, cAMP concentrations were not different from basal. Yet, such pretreatment with PACAP-27 stimulated subsequent insulin release by congruent with60%. This sustained action is likely to reflect an increased degree of protein-kinase-A-dependent phosphorylation, and inhibitors of the kinase largely prevented the PACAP-mediated effects.
