Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate and-Cell Function Enhanced Glucose-Induced Insulin Secretion and Altered Gene Expression in Rodent Pancreatic-Cells


Administration of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), or its sulfated form (DHEAS), controls hyperglycemia in diabetic rodents without directly altering insulin sensitivity. We show that DHEAS enhanced glucose-stimulated insulin secretion when administered in vivo to rats or in vitro to -cell lines, without changing cellular insulin content. Insulin secretion… (More)
