About the Edition

One central mechanism underlying cell death following cerebral ischemia is a loss of the balance between excitation and inhibition leading to excitotoxicity. We began by investigating whether oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD), an ischemia-like challenge, altered cell-surface expression of type A gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors (GABAARs; which mediate fast synaptic inhibition) in cultured neurons. Cell-based ELISAs revealed that OGD produced a marked decrease within GABAAR surface expression, which was subsequently shown to result from increased clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Importantly, treating neurons with 0.5 muM insulin, which facilitated GABAAR insertion, counteracted the OGD-induced reduction in cell-surface GABA ARs. In parallel, insulin significantly protected cultured neurons against both glutamate toxicity and OGD; however, protection was absent when newly inserted receptors were rendered functionally irrelevant by the presence of the GABAAR antagonist bicuculline. Additional experiments revealed that inhibiting insulin receptor (IR) function markedly worsened cell viability following OGD, while the opposite effect was seen with an insulin sensitiser, suggesting that endogenous neural insulin signaling may protect neurons. To further examine this possibility, we characterised an in vivo model wherein neuronal insulin signaling was compromised. Feeding Syrian golden hamsters a diet high in fructose lead to the development of a previously unrecognised state of brain insulin resistance, wherein the ability of insulin to stimulate phosphorylation of the IR and many of its downstream targets was significantly reduced. In addition to biochemical changes, fructose feeding also diminished the ability of insulin to induce long-term depression. Subsequently, acutely prepared hippocampal slices from normal diet and fructose fed (FF) animals, were challenged with hypoxia-aglycemia (an additional ischemia-like challenge), and slice viability assayed after a recovery period. Unexpectedly, the insult did not affect viability of slices prepared from FF hamsters, however, the severity of the challenge may not have been sufficient to allow a phenotype to emerge, for hamster slices were shown to be somewhat resistant to aglycemia-hypoxia. Overall, our results provide important information about the relevance of GABAAR trafficking to ischemia, and suggest the presence of a modifiable neural insulin system that is affected by insulin resistance and participates in the brain"s response to ischemia.

The Journal of Insulin Resistance is a peer-reviewed, clinically oriented journal covering advances in disorders of insulin resistance.

Articles focus on clinical care and advancing therapy for patients with insulin resistance-related disorders. Insulin resistance includes pathophysiology, management, patient education, and treatment considerations for different patient by: 5.

CNS insulin resistance is associated with Alzheimer's disease, depression, and impaired baroreceptor gain in pregnancy. These aspects of CNS insulin action and the control of its entry by the BBB are likely only a small part of the story of insulin within the brain.

Insulin and the Brain. Insulin is best-known as a carbohydrate storage hormone. If you eat something containing digestible carbohydrates, you’ll end up with higher blood sugar: more carbohydrates (glucose) in your bloodstream.

In the long term, high blood sugar is dangerous. That glucose needs to get out of the bloodstream and preferably. The initial interaction between insulin and its receptor on target cell surface is followed by a series of surface and intracellular steps which participate in the control of insulin action.

Abnormalities of any of these steps could result in mishandling of the receptor leading to defective modulation of receptor number on the cell surface and to inappropriate cell sensitivity Cited by: The role of insulin receptor signaling in the brain Leona Plum1,2, Markus Schubert2 and Jens C.

For many years, the insulin receptor (IR) has been known to be widely expressed in the central nervous system (Baskin et al.,LeRoith et al.,Adamo et al.,Unger et al., ).High concentrations of IR mRNA was found in several specific brain areas including the choroid plexus, olfactory bulb, piryform cortex, amygdaloid nucleus, hippocampus, Cited by: lower cerebrospinal fluid, and higher plasma insulin concentrations, which may be due to some malfunction in insulin uptake in the brain •Administration of insulin to Alzheimer’s patients shows an improvement in memory •Contrary evidence was shown in NIRKO mice, which had shown fairly normal spatial learning in the Morris water maze task.

Local Insulin Production Within the Brain. The effects of insulin in the CNS raise questions regarding how much circulating insulin reaches. Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance increase the risk of Alzheimer disease as well as of vascular dementia.

Numerous studies point to a variety of possible mechanisms, including the role of insulin signaling on amyloid-β regulation, synaptic integrity, inflammation tau phosphorylation, brain vascular function, and energy metabolism. Insulin is synthesized in and secreted from the β-cells within the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas.

The normal pancreas has about 1 million islets, which constitute about % of the gland’s mass. All of the islet cell types are derived embryologically from endodermal outgrowths of. Much controversy surrounds the relative role of insulin signaling in the brain in the control of hepatic glucose metabolism.

Insulin resistance of the brain occurs when insulin no longer functions properly in your brain. Learn about how this can lead to cognitive problems here.

Insulin. Fasting is the most efficient and consistent strategy to decrease insulin levels. This was first noted decades ago, and widely accepted as true. It is quite simple and obvious. All foods raise insulin, so the most effective method of reducing insulin is. The islets of Langerhans within your pancreas produce the hormones insulin and glucagon.

Introduction The brain is registered as a target organ for insulin and insulin receptor (IR). It has now been established that insulin in the central nervous system (CNS) exhibits more diverse actions while the primary function of insulin is to regulate glucose homeostasis in some classical peripheral insulin target tissues like adipocyte, muscle and liver.
