Mechanistic investigation of N,N-diethyl-4-(phenyl-piperidin-4-ylidenemethyl)-benzamide-induced insulin depletion in the rat and RINm5F cells.

Abstract

These studies describe the effect of N,N-diethyl-4-(phenyl-piperidin-4-ylidenemethyl)-benzamide (AR-M100390), a delta-opioid agonist, on the pancreas and its mechanisms for pancreatic toxicity. Rats were treated with 5, 100, and 600 micromol/kg of AR-M100390 for 3 and/or 7 days; another group of rats treated with 600 micromol/kg of compound were allowed to… (More)
