Sample text

The PKA-independent action of GLP-1 is mediated by the cAMP-regulated guanine nucleotide exchange factor Epac2. Binding of cAMP to Epac2 results in sequential activation of Rap1 GTPase and PLCe, thereby promoting PIP2 hydrolysis and intracellular Ca2þ mobilization. GLP-1 also exerts PKA and Epac2-mediated actions to enhance glucosedependent KATP channel closure, thereby promoting Ca2þ influx through VDCCs. The primary role of GLP-1 relevant to insulin secretion is to act as a b-cell glucose sensitizer in order to enhance insulin exocytosis mediated by the triggering and amplification pathways of GSIS.

119 Conceivably, these growth factor-like signaling pathways might be selectively activated by allosteric GLP-1R agonists that have “biased” signal transduction properties and that bind the GLP-1R in order to promote b-cell compensation under conditions of the HFD. 7. GLUCOREGULATORY PROPERTIES OF GLP-1 MEDIATED BY THE NERVOUS SYSTEM A high-profile area of research concerns GLP-1 action in the nervous system, and it is recently appreciated that such actions of GLP-1 are of importance to glucoregulation.
