Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide stimulated insulin release from a tumor-derived beta-cell line (beta TC3).


The beta TC3 tumor cell line was examined for the presence of functional glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptors. Increasing amounts of natural porcine GIP decreased the binding of HPLC-purified [125I]GIP to beta TC3 cells in a concentration-dependent manner. Displacement of GIP was significant at concentrations as low as 500 pM, and… (More)
