Abstract [en]

Abstract: Rapid and effective revascularization of transplanted pancreatic islets is vital for the survival and function of the islet graft. Insufficient vascularization after islet transplantation may be one causative factor to the failure of islet grafts in clinical transplantation. The aim of this study was to investigate if N-{N-[2-(3,5-Difluorophenyl)acetyl]-(S)-alanyl}- (S)-phenylglycine- tert-butyl ester (DAPT) administration can improve engraftment of transplanted islets. DAPT is a dipeptidic gamma-secretase inhibitor which inhibits Notch signaling. Notch signaling is involved in angiogenesis and inhibition may result in excessive formation of new blood vessels. Excessive vasculature may be beneficial in the immediate posttransplantation period since the transplanted islets are dependent on diffusion of oxygen and nutrients before revascularization. Islets isolated from C57BL/6 mice were transplanted beneath the renal capsule of C57BL/6 mice. After islet transplantation DAPT or vehicle was administered subcutaneously for three days. Mice treated with DAPT had an increased vascular density when compared to control mice two days and one month posttransplantation. Moreover, mice treated with DAPT showed 54±8.2 % functional blood vessels compared to 40±6.7 % in control mice two days posttransplantation. After one month, the fraction of functional blood vessels increased to 86±2.8 % in DAPT treated mice compared to 61±9.4 % in control mice. Our findings demonstrated that administration of DAPT may be a feasible strategy to improve engraftment of transplanted islets.
