Altered regulation of glycogen metabolism by vasopressin and phenylephrine in hepatocytes from insulin-resistant obese (fa/fa) rats. Role of protein kinase C



Altered regulation of glycogen metabolism by vasopressin and phenylephrine in hepatocytes from insulin-resistant obese (fa/fa) rats. Role of protein kinase C



Biochemical Journal 269(3): 795-799



The hormonal control of glycogen synthase and phosphorylase interconversion was investigated in hepatocytes isolated from lean and genetically obese (fa/fa) rats. In cells from obese animals, the inactivation of synthase by 4 beta-phorbol 12 beta-myristate 13 alpha-acetate (PMA), phospholipase C, vasopressin and the alpha 1-adrenergic agonist phenylephrine was markedly impaired, and the property of PMA to counteract phosphorylase activation by phenylephrine was attenuated. The maximal response of phosphorylase activation to phenylephrine and vasopressin was increased in obese-rat hepatocytes, but the sensitivity to these hormones was similar to that in lean-rat hepatocytes. These observations indicate that the defect in protein kinase C that we reported previously in heart of insulin-resistant fa/fa rats [van de Werve, Zaninetti, Lang, Vallotton & Jeanrenaud (1987) Diabetes 36, 310-319] is probably also expressed in liver.
