Stimulation of pancreatic beta-cells by glucose gives rise to an increase in the cytoplasmic free calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) and exocytosis of insulin. Cyclic adenosine 5'-diphosphate ribose (cADPR), a metabolite of beta-NAD+, has been reported to increase [Ca2+]i in pancreatic beta-cells by releasing Ca2+ from inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate-insensitive intracellular stores. In the present study, we have examined the role of cADPR in glucose-mediated increases in [Ca2+]i and insulin exocytosis. Dispersed ob/ob mouse beta-cell aggregates were either pressure microinjected with fura-2 salt or loaded with fura-2 acetoxymethyl ester, and [Ca2+]i was monitored by microfluorimetry. Microinjection of beta-NAD+ into fura-2-loaded beta-cells did not increase [Ca2+]i nor did it alter the cells' subsequent [Ca2+]i response to glucose. Cells microinjected with the cADPR antagonist 8NH2-cADPR increased [Ca2+]i in response to glucose equally well as those injected with cADPR. Finally, the ability of cADPR to promote exocytosis of insulin in electropermeabilized beta-cells was investigated. cADPR on its own did not increase insulin secretion nor did it potentiate Ca2+-induced insulin secretion. We conclude that cADPR neither plays a significant role in glucose-mediated increases in [Ca2+]i nor interacts directly with the molecular mechanisms regulating exocytosis of insulin in normal pancreatic beta-cells.
