Arginine vasopressin and oxytocin effects in mouse pancreatic beta-cells. Receptors involved in stimulation of insulin release.

Abstract

Recently AVP and OT were suggested to increase insulin release by stimulating phosphoinositide metabolism in pancreatic beta-cells. In this study, mouse islets were used to identify the receptors involved in the effects of AVP and OT. Both agents caused concentration-dependent (0.1 nM to 10 microM) increases in insulin release and IP levels. The potencies… (More)
