1. Differential antagonism of amylin's metabolic and vascular actions with amylin receptor antagonists
L S Gaeta, T J Rink, K Beaumont, R A Pittner, A A Young, K S Prickett, C X Moore Can J Physiol Pharmacol . 1995 Jul;73(7):1025-9. doi: 10.1139/y95-144.
High affinity amylin binding sites are present in the rat nucleus accumbens. These sites bind [125I]amylin with an affinity of 27 pM and have high affinity for salmon calcitonin (sCT) and moderately high affinity for calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP). N-terminally truncated peptides were tested for their ability to compete for [125I]amylin binding to these sites and to antagonize the metabolic and vascular actions of amylin. CGRP(8-37), sCT(8-32), and ac-[Asn30,Tyr32]sCT(8-32) (AC187) inhibited [125I]amylin binding to rat nucleus accumbens. Order of potency at inhibiting amylin binding (AC187 > sCT(8-32) > CGRP(8-37)) differed from the order of potency at inhibiting [125I]CGRP binding to SK-N-MC neuroblastoma cells (CGRP(8-37) > AC187 > sCT(8-32)) . AC187 was the most potent antagonist of amylin's effects on isolated rat soleus muscle glycogen metabolism, and it was more effective than either sCT(8-32) or CGRP(8-37) at reducing amylin-stimulated hyperlactemia in rats. In contrast, CGRP(8-37) was the most potent peptide at antagonizing amylin-induced hypotension in rats. Amylin's hypotensive actions appear to be mediated by a weak action at CGRP receptors, while its metabolic actions are mediated by receptors with a distinct antagonist profile. AC187 is a potent antagonist of amylin binding sites in nucleus accumbens and of amylin's metabolic actions.
2. The presence of islet amyloid polypeptide/calcitonin gene-related peptide/salmon calcitonin binding sites in the rat nucleus accumbens
P R Veale, D G Morgan, D M Smith, S R Bloom, R Bhogal Eur J Pharmacol . 1994 Sep 1;262(1-2):133-41. doi: 10.1016/0014-2999(94)90036-1.
Receptor autoradiographic analysis of binding in rat brain sections for [125I]islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP), [125I]calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and [125I]salmon calcitonin indicated dense binding for all three ligands in the nucleus accumbens. Membrane binding studies revealed the existence of high affinity sites for all three peptides. The order of potency of various related peptides at each binding site was investigated and found for [125I]IAPP to be salmon calcitonin > IAPP = alpha CGRP > salmon calcitonin-(8-32); for [125I]CGRP to be alpha CGRP > IAPP > salmon calcitonin; and for [125I]salmon calcitonin to be salmon calcitonin > alpha CGRP > rat calcitonin > salmon calcitonin-(8-32) > IAPP, suggesting that [125I]IAPP targets the CGRP3 receptor subtype. This study confirms the existence of two receptors in the rat nucleus accumbens binding salmon calcitonin, one of which binds alpha CGRP and IAPP with a high affinity.
3. Amylin-induced suppression of ANP secretion through receptors for CGRP1 and salmon calcitonin
Kyung Woo Cho, Feng Lian Piao, Jeong Hee Han, Chunhua Cao, Suhn Hee Kim, Sung Zoo Kim Regul Pept . 2004 Mar 15;117(3):159-66. doi: 10.1016/j.regpep.2003.10.005.
Amylin cosecretes with insulin from pancreatic beta-cells and shows high sequence homology with CGRP, adrenomedullin, and salmon calcitonin. This study aimed to investigate the effect of amylin on the atrial hemodynamics and ANP release from rat atria and to identify its receptor subtypes. Isolated perfused left atria from either control or streptozotocin-treated rats were paced at 1.3 Hz. The concentration of ANP was measured by radioimmunoassay and the translocation of ECF was measured by [3H]-inulin clearance. Rat amylin increased atrial contractility and suppressed the release of ANP. Rat CGRP showed similar effects but was approximately 300-fold more potent than amylin. Pretreatment with receptor antagonist for CGRP1 [rat alpha-CGRP (8-37)] or salmon calcitonin [acetyl-(Asn30, Tyr32)-calcitonin(8-32), (AC 187)] blocked the suppressive effect of ANP release and the positive inotropic effect by rat amylin. However, receptor antagonists for amylin [amylin (8-37), acetyl-amylin] did not block those effects. Amylin (8-37), acetyl-amylin, or rat alpha-CGRP (8-37) alone accentuated the release of ANP with no changes in atrial contractility. The effect of rat amylin and rat amylin (8-37) on the ANP release was attenuated in streptozotocin-treated rats. We suggest that amylin suppressed ANP release with increased atrial contractility through receptors for CGRP1 and salmon calcitonin and the attenuation of amylin and its antagonist on ANP release from streptozotocin-treated rat atria may be due to the downregulation of amylin receptor.
