Presence of islet amyloid polypeptide in rat islet B and D cells determines parallelism and dissociation between rat pancreatic islet amyloid polypeptide and insulin content



Presence of islet amyloid polypeptide in rat islet B and D cells determines parallelism and dissociation between rat pancreatic islet amyloid polypeptide and insulin content



Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 182(2): 886-893



The islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) immunoreactivity of the adult rat pancreas is located in insulin-containing B cells as well as in somatostatin-containing D cells. In both cell types, the IAPP immunoreactivity is identical to rat synthetic IAPP in terms of its elution position after reversed phase HPLC and its binding to IAPP antibodies. The IAPP content per 10(6) B-cells is more than 100 fold lower than the corresponding insulin content, but comparable to the IAPP content of D cells. After induction of diabetes by streptozotocin, pancreatic IAPP seems predominantly located in somatostatin-containing cells. In normal rats, pancreatic insulin and IAPP content increase 20 fold from birth to 12 weeks of age; beyond week 12, the further rise in pancreatic insulin was not paralleled by an increase in IAPP content.
