Method Protocols for Metabolic and Functional Analysis of the BRIN-BD11 ß-Cell Line: A Preclinical Model for Type 2 Diabetes
MetadataShow full item record
In type 2 diabetes, prolonged dysregulation of signalling and ß-cell metabolic control leads to ß-cell dysfunction, and is increasingly associated with abnormal metabolic states which disrupt normal cellular physiology. Utilization of appropriate ß-cell models enables a systematic approach to understand the impact of perturbations to the biological system. The BRIN-BD11 ß-cell line is a useful, pre-clinical cell model for ß-cell dysfunction associated with type 2 diabetes, among other metabolic disorders. The present chapter describes detection and analysis of ß-cell dysfunction with respect to changes in bioenergetics and metabolism, generation of intracellular reactive oxygen species, and acute and chronic insulin secretion in the BRIN-BD11 cell line.

Elevated levels of extracellular heat-shock protein 72 (eHSP72) are positively correlated with insulin resistance in vivo and cause pancreatic ß-cell dysfunction and death in vitro.Krause, M.; Keane, Kevin; Rodrigues-Krause, J.; Crognale, D.; Egan, B.; De Vito, G.; Murphy, C.; Newsholme, Philip (2013)eHSP72 (extracellular heat-shock protein 72) is increased in the plasma of both types of diabetes and is positively correlated with inflammatory markers. Since aging is associated with a low-grade inflammation and IR ...
