Dissection of mechanisms that account for imidazoline-induced lowering of blood glucose in mice.

Abstract

Multiple mechanisms have been suggested to be responsible for the insulinotropic and blood glucose lowering effects of imidazoline compounds. This study was to unravel which mechanism predominantly accounts for glucose lowering by the prototypical imidazolines idazoxan and phentolamine. To this end, an α2-adrenoceptor agonist (UK14,304) and a KATP channel… (More)
