Elevated basal insulin secretion under fasting conditions together with insufficient stimulated insulin release is an important hallmark of type 2 diabetes, but the mechanisms controlling basal insulin secretion remain unclear. Membrane rafts exist in pancreatic islet cells and spatially organize membrane ion channels and proteins controlling exocytosis, which may contribute to the regulation of insulin secretion. Membrane rafts (cholesterol and sphingolipid containing microdomains) were dramatically reduced in human type 2 diabetic and diabetic Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rat islets when compared with healthy islets. Oxidation of membrane cholesterol markedly reduced microdomain staining intensity in healthy human islets, but was without effect in type 2 diabetic islets. Intriguingly, oxidation of cholesterol affected glucose-stimulated insulin secretion only modestly, whereas basal insulin release was elevated. This was accompanied by increased intracellular Ca2+ spike frequency and Ca2+ influx and explained by enhanced single Ca2+ channel activity. These results suggest that the reduced presence of membrane rafts could contribute to the elevated basal insulin secretion seen in type 2 diabetes.

Inappropriate surface expression of voltage-gated Ca(2+)channels (CaV) in pancreatic s-cells may contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. First, failure to increase intracellular Ca(2+) concentrations at the sites of exocytosis impedes insulin release. Furthermore, excessive Ca(2+) influx may trigger cytotoxic effects. The regulation of surface expression of CaV channels in the pancreatic β-cells remains unknown. Here, we used real-time 3D confocal and TIRFM imaging, immunocytochemistry...

The formation of mature secretory granules is essential for proper storage and regulated release of hormones and neuropeptides. In pancreatic β cells, cholesterol accumulation causes defects in insulin secretion and may participate in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. Using a novel cholesterol analog, we show for the first time that insulin granules are the major sites of intracellular cholesterol accumulation in live β cells. This is distinct from other, non-secretory cell types, in which ch...

Aims To examine whether high-dose statin therapy in Dutch European patients with Type 2 diabetes and dyslipidaemia influenced variables of glycaemic control. Methods The CORALL study, which was a 24-week, open-label, randomized, parallel-group, phase IIIb, multi-centre study, was designed to compare the cholesterol-lowering effects of rosuvastatin compared with atorvastatin in patients with Type 2 diabetes. Fasting plasma glucose levels and HbA1c levels were collected at baseline and at 6 and 18...

Since its discovery and first clinical use in the 1920s, insulin therapy has revolutionized the treatment and natural history of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. This article highlights selected milestones in insulin discovery and its continued development as a pivotal therapy for diabetes (Fig. 1). The history of insulin begins at the turn of the twentieth century, with the culmination of early landmark research on endocrine pancreas (patho)physiology, which provided the intellectual a...

Non-technical summary The α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are a therapeutic target for the treatment of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia, and drugs that potentiate α7 nAChRs through the regulation of desensitization are currently being developed. Here we show that changes to the lipid composition of the plasma membrane in rat hippocampal neurons, through either acute treatment with drugs that remove cholesterol and breakdown sphingomyelin or chro...

Herein, using a recently developed hydration-sensitive ratiometric biomembrane probe based on 3-hydroxyflavone (F2N12S) that binds selectively to the outer leaflet of plasma membranes, we compared plasma membranes of living cells and lipid vesicles as model membranes. Through the spectroscopic analysis of the probe response, we characterized the membranes in terms of hydration and polarity (electrostatics). The hydration parameter value in cell membranes was in between the values obtained with l...

Summary Background Trials of statin therapy have had conflicting findings on the risk of development of diabetes mellitus in patients given statins. We aimed to establish by a meta-analysis of published and unpublished data whether any relation exists between statin use and development of diabetes. Methods We searched Medline, Embase, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials from 1994 to 2009, for randomised controlled endpoint trials of statins. We included only trials with more t...

Long-term (72 hr) exposure of pancreatic islets to palmitate inhibited glucose-induced insulin secretion by >50% with first- and second-phase secretion being equally suppressed. This inhibition correlated with the selective impairment of exocytosis evoked by brief (action potential-like) depolarizations, whereas that evoked by long (∼250 ms) stimuli was unaffected. Under normal conditions, Ca2+ influx elicited by brief membrane depolarizations increases [Ca2+]i to high levels within discrete mic...

The incretin peptides, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), potentiate glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) and β-cell proliferation and differentiation. Ca2+ influx via voltage-gated L-type Ca2+ channels is required for GLP-1 and GIP potentiation of GSIS. We investigated the role of the L-type Ca2+ channels Cav1.2 and Cav1.3 in mediating GLP-1- and GIP-stimulated events in INS-1 cells and INS-1 cell lines expressing dihydropyridine-insen...

Mitochondrial turnover is required for proper cellular function. Both mitochondrial biogenesis and mitophagy are impaired in several degenerative and age-related diseases. The search for mitophagy activators recently emerged as a new therapeutical approach; however, there is a lack in suitable tools to follow mitochondrial turnover in a high-throughput manner. We demonstrate that the fluorescent protein, MitoTimer, is a reliable and robust probe to follow mitochondrial turnover. The screening of...

Cytokines present during low-grade inflammation contribute to β-cell dysfunction and diabetes. Cytokine signaling disrupts β-cell glucose-stimulated Ca2+ influx (GSCI) and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca2+ ([Ca2+]ER) handling, leading to diminished glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS). However, cytokine-mediated changes in ion channel activity that alter β-cell Ca2+ handling remain unknown. Here we investigated the role of K+ currents in cytokine-mediated β-cell dysfunction. Kslow currents,...

: We propose protein localization dependent signal activation (PLDSA) as a model to describe pre-existing protein partitioning between the cytosol, and membrane surface, as a means to modulate signal activation, specificity, and robustness. We apply PLDSA to explain possible molecular links between type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) by describing Ca+2 -mediated interactions between the Src non-receptor tyrosine kinase and p52Shc adaptor protein. We suggest that these i...

This prospective study evaluated whether baseline cholesterol efflux is associated with future development of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in cardiovascular patients. We measured cholesterol efflux in all CORDIOPREV study (NCT00924937) participants free of T2DM at baseline (n = 462) and assessed its relationship with T2DM incidence during a 4.5 years of follow-up. Cholesterol efflux was quantified by incubation of cholesterol-loaded THP-1 cells with the participants' apoB-depleted plasma. Disposition ...

The changes in life-style with increased access of food and reduced physical activity have resulted in the global epidemic of obesity. Consequently, individuals with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease have also escalated. A central organ in the development of diabetes is the pancreas, and more specifically the pancreatic beta cells within the islets of Langerhans. Beta cells have been assigned the important task of secreting insulin when blood glucose is increased to lower the glucose le...
