Interaction Information:

Comment This study investigated the significance of beta2-adrenergic receptor (beta2AR) in age-related impaired insulin secretion and glucose homeostasis. Adult beta2AR-/- mice featured glucose intolerance, and pancreatic islets isolated from these animals displayed impaired glucose-induced insulin release, accompanied by reduced expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor PPARgamma, pancreatic duodenal homeobox-1 (PDX-1), and GLUT2. Overexpression of beta2AR in aged mice rescued glucose intolerance and insulin release both in vivo and ex vivo, restoring PPARgamma/PDX-1/GLUT2 levels. These data indicate that reduced beta2AR expression contributes to the age-related decline of glucose tolerance in mice.

Comment With aging, wild-type beta2AR+/+ littermates developed impaired insulin secretion and glucose tolerance. Moreover, islets from 20-month-old beta2AR+/+ mice exhibited reduced density of beta2AR compared with those from younger animals, paralleled by decreased levels of PPARgamma, PDX-1, and GLUT2.
