The role of Zn2+-sensing receptor GPR39 on glucose homeostasis and incretin regulation was assessed in enteroendocrine L- and K-cells. Anti-hyperglycaemic, insulinotropic and incretin secreting properties of Zn2+ were explored in normal, diabetic and incretin receptor knockout mice. Compared to intraperitoneal injection, oral administration of Zn2+ (50 μmol/kg body weight) with glucose (18 mmol/kg) in lean mice reduced the glycaemic excursion by 25-34% (p<0.05-p<0.001) and enhanced glucose-induced insulin release by 46-48% (p<0...

Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in individuals with diabetes, and it is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) worldwide. Stanniocalcin-1 (STC-1) is present in various tissues, and it has antioxidant and anti-apoptotic activities, which play a role in kidney protection, including diabetic nephropathy (DN). However, the mechanism that underlies these effects remains unknown. This study suggests that STC-1 ameliorates oxidative stress and cell apoptosis in the kidneys of db/db mice and high glucose (HG)-treated BUMPT cells by inhibiting Bnip3 expression through AMPK/Sirt3 pathway activation...

Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) and squamous thyroid carcinoma (STC) are both rare and advanced thyroid malignancies with a very poor prognosis and an average median survival time of 5 months and less than 20% of affected patients are alive 1 year after diagnosis. The clinical management of both ATC and STC is very similar because they are not particularly responsive to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. This inspired us to explore a novel and effective clinically approved therapy for ATC treatment. Histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDACi) drugs are recently FDA-approved drug for malignancies, especially for blood cell cancers...

Type II diabetes is a complex, chronic, and progressive disease. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (7-36) amide (GLP-1) is a gut hormone released from the L cells which stimulate insulin secretion and promotes insulin gene expression and β-cell growth and differentiation. Elevated levels of hormones secreted by L cells are an essential reason for diabetes improvement. GLP-1 secretion has been reported to be regulated by farnesoid X receptor (FXR), a transcriptional sensor for bile acids which also acts on glucose metabolism...

Plant extract activity can be modified by the digestion process. In order to assess the satiety effect of green tea and turmeric extracts, an in vitro gastrointestinal digestion process was performed and the STC-1 cell line was used. The enteroendocrine cell line was incubated (for 30, 60 and 120 minutes) with the digested and non-digested extracts measuring the secretion of cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The release of satiety hormones by the STC-1 cells showed similar or higher results for plant extracts compared to the positive controls reported as satiatogenic (proteins and short chain fatty acids)...

The present study evaluates casein and whey protein gastrointestinal digests as inducers of CCK and GLP-1 secretion and expression in STC-1 cells. In vitro digests were characterized regarding protein, peptide and free amino acid content. Digests from the intestinal phase containing small size peptides and free amino acids behaved as more potent CCK inducers than digests from the gastric phase. However, GLP-1 release was maximized with casein gastric digests and whey protein intestinal digests. Human jejunal digests from the same substrates showed a comparable response, except for casein jejunal digests which exerted a higher effect than in vitro casein gastrointestinal digests...

SCOPE: The secretion of gut hormones, such as cholecystokinin (CCK) is stimulated by fatty acids. Although a chain length-dependent mechanism has been proposed, other structural relationships to releasing activity remain unclear. We aimed to elucidate specific structures in fatty acids that are responsible for their CCK-releasing activity, and related sensing mechanisms in enteroendocrine cells. METHODS AND RESULTS: CCK secretory activities were examined in a murine CCK-producing cell line STC-1 by exposing the cells to various modified fatty acids produced by gut lactic acid bacteria...

BACKGROUND: The mechanism by which Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) increases the secretion of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) remains incompletely defined. Here we investigated whether TGR5-mTORC1 signaling mediates the RYGB-induced alteration in GLP-1 production in mice and human beings. METHODS: Circulating bile acids, TGR5-mTORC1 signaling, GLP-1 synthesis and secretion were determined in lean or obese male C57BL/6 mice with or without RYGB operation, as well as in normal glycemic subjects, obese patients with type 2 diabetes before and after RYGB...

One hallmark of pancreatic cancer (PC) is the high prevalence of pancreatic cancer-associated diabetes mellitus (PC-DM), but the mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Patients with PC who are diagnosed with new-onset diabetes/prediabetes have recently been shown to display significantly lower levels of glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) secreted mainly by enteroendocrine cells. We hypothesized that PC-derived exosomes are responsible for the decreased levels of incretins in patients with PC-DM. In this study, exosomes were successfully isolated from PANC-1, MIA PaCa-2 and SW620 cells and characterized...

Impaired incretin effect is a culprit in Type 2 Diabetes. Cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) is a regulatory peptide controlling pancreatic islet hormone secretion and beta-cell survival. Here we studied the potential expression of CART in enteroendocrine cells and examined the role of CART as a regulator of incretin secretion and expression. CART expression was found in glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP)-producing K-cells and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1)-producing L-cells in human duodenum and jejunum and circulating CART levels were increased 60 min after a meal in humans...

Intestinal mucosal immune barrier dysfunction plays a key role in the pathogenesis of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). Rhubarb is a commonly used traditional Chinese medicine as a laxative in China. It markedly protects pancreatic acinar cells from trypsin-induced injury in rats. Free total rhubarb anthraquinones (FTRAs) isolated and extracted from rhubarb display the beneficial effects of antibacteria, anti-inflammation, antivirus, and anticancer. The principal aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of FTRAs on the protection of intestinal injury and modification of the intestinal barrier function through regulation of intestinal immune function in rats with SAP...

In an effort to control weight gain, much attention has focused on the identification of bioactive peptides from food sources that induce satiety hormone secretion and increase the feeling of fullness. In this study, a screening platform identified a sodium caseinate hydrolysate, LFC25, that significantly increased calcium signalling in the enteroendocrine cell line, STC-1, and as a result increased secretion of the satiety hormone, GLP-1, in a dose-dependent manner. Administration of this hydrolysate to mice reduced the cumulative food intake over an eight hour period...
