Inhibition of PKCe Improves Glucose-Stimulated Insulin Secretion and Reduces Insulin Clearance – Source: Cell Metabolism, Oct 3, 2007

[Note: To read some of the authors’ comments on these findings, see “Solving a Critical Part of the Insulin Puzzle.”]

In type 2 diabetes, pancreatic ß cells fail to secrete sufficient insulin to overcome peripheral insulin resistance. Intracellular lipid accumulation contributes to ß cell failure through poorly defined mechanisms.

Here we report a role for the lipid-regulated protein kinase C isoform PKCe in ß cell dysfunction.

Deletion of PKCe augmented insulin secretion and prevented glucose intolerance in fat-fed mice. Importantly, a PKCe-inhibitory peptide improved insulin availability and glucose tolerance in db/db mice with preexisting diabetes. Functional ablation of PKCe selectively enhanced insulin release ex vivo from diabetic or lipid-pretreated islets and optimized the glucose-regulated lipid partitioning that amplifies the secretory response.

Independently, PKCe deletion also augmented insulin availability by reducing both whole-body insulin clearance and insulin uptake by hepatocytes.

Our findings implicate PKCe in the etiology of ß cell dysfunction and highlight that enhancement of insulin availability, through separate effects on liver and ß cells, provides a rationale for inhibiting PKCe to treat type 2 diabetes.
