Bottom Line: GLP-1 is produced in the small intestine and is released in response to a meal.Experiment 3 examined the effects of exendin-4 (GLP-1 receptor agonist) administration on the intake of a high-fat or a low-fat diet in OM and S5B rats.The intake of low-fat diet, compared to the intake of high-fat diet, was more sensitive to the effects of exendin-4 in these strains.

ABSTRACT

Background: Osborne-Mendel (OM) rats are prone to obesity when fed a high-fat diet, whereas S5B/Pl (S5B) rats are resistant to diet-induced obesity when fed the same diet. OM rats have a decreased satiation response to fatty acids infused in the gastrointestinal tract, compared to S5B rats. One possible explanation is that OM rats are less sensitive to the satiating hormone, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is produced in the small intestine and is released in response to a meal. The current experiments examined the role of GLP-1 in OM and S5B rats.

Methods: Experiment 1 examined preproglucagon mRNA expression in the ileum of OM and S5B rats fed a high-fat (55% kcal) or low-fat (10% kcal) diet. Experiment 2 investigated the effects of a 2 h high-fat meal after a 24 h fast in OM and S5B rats on circulating GLP-1 (active) levels. Experiment 3 examined the effects of exendin-4 (GLP-1 receptor agonist) administration on the intake of a high-fat or a low-fat diet in OM and S5B rats.

Results: Preproglucagon mRNA levels were increased in the ileum of OM rats compared to S5B rats and were increased by high-fat diet in OM and S5B rats. OM and S5B rats exhibited a similar meal-initiated increase in circulating GLP-1 (active) levels. Exendin-4 dose dependently decreased food intake to a greater extent in S5B rats compared to OM rats. The intake of low-fat diet, compared to the intake of high-fat diet, was more sensitive to the effects of exendin-4 in these strains.

Conclusions: These results suggest that though OM and S5B rats have similar preproglucagon mRNA expression in the ileum and circulating GLP-1 levels, OM rats are less sensitive to the satiating effects of GLP-1. Therefore, dysregulation of the GLP-1 system may be a mechanism through which OM rats overeat and gain weight.

High fat and low fat food intake was measured 24h following Ex-4 administration. A. In S5B rats, low fat and high fat diet intake was suppressed by Ex- 4 (1μg/kg, 5μg/kg, 10μg/kg and 5μg/kg, 10μg/kg). B. In OM rats, Ex-4 administration suppressed low fat intake and high fat food intake (5μg/kg, 10μg/kg and 10μg/kg). Data are expressed as cumulative food intake in kilocalories (kcal) and shown as mean ± SEM. * saline vs. Ex-4, (p<.05).

Figure 6: High fat and low fat food intake was measured 24h following Ex-4 administration. A. In S5B rats, low fat and high fat diet intake was suppressed by Ex- 4 (1μg/kg, 5μg/kg, 10μg/kg and 5μg/kg, 10μg/kg). B.

Data are expressed as cumulative food intake in kilocalories (kcal) and shown as mean ± SEM. * saline vs. Ex-4, (p<.05).

Mentions: High fat and low fat food intake were also measured at 24h following administration of Ex-4. S5B rats ate less low fat diet at 24h when administered 1μg/kg, 5μg/kg and 10μg/kg Ex-4 compared to saline. High fat diet intake in S5B rats was reduced at 24h following administration of 5μg/kg and 10μg/kg Ex-4 (See Figure 6A, p<.05). Twenty-four hour intake of low fat diet was decreased in OM rats following administration of 5μg/kg and 10μg/kg Ex-4. However, in high fat fed rats, only 10μg/kg Ex-4 decreased high fat food intake in OM rats compared to saline-injected controls (See Figure 6B, p<.05).
