Metabolic responses to BRL37344 and clenbuterol in soleus muscle and C2C12 cells via different atypical pharmacologies and beta2-adrenoceptor mechanisms.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Picomolar concentrations of the beta3-adrenoceptor agonist BRL37344 stimulate 2-deoxyglucose uptake in soleus muscle via undefined receptors. Higher concentrations alter uptake, apparently via beta2-adrenoceptors. Effects of BRL37344 and beta2-adrenoceptor agonists are compared. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: Mouse soleus muscles were incubated with 2-deoxy[1-(14)C]-glucose, [1-(14)C]-palmitate or [2-(14)C]-pyruvate, and BRL37344, beta2-adrenoceptor agonists and selective beta-adrenoceptor antagonists. Formation of 2-deoxy[1-(14)C]-glucose-6-phosphate or (14)CO2 was measured. 2-Deoxy[1-(14)C]-glucose uptake and beta-adrenoceptor mRNA were measured in C2C12 cells. KEY RESULTS: 10 pM BRL37344, 10 pM clenbuterol and 100 pM salbutamol stimulated 2-deoxyglucose uptake in soleus muscle by 33-54%. The effect of BRL37344 was prevented by 1 microM atenolol but not by 300 nM CGP20712A or IC3118551, or 1 microM SR59230A; that of clenbuterol was prevented by ICI118551 but not atenolol. 10 nM BRL37344 stimulated 2-deoxyglucose uptake, whereas 100 nM clenbuterol and salbutamol inhibited uptake. These effects were blocked by ICI118551. Similar results were obtained in C2C12 cells, in which only beta2-adrenoceptor mRNA could be detected by RT-PCR. 10 nM BRL37344 and 10 pM clenbuterol stimulated muscle palmitate oxidation. In the presence of palmitate, BRL37344 no longer stimulated 2-deoxyglucose uptake and the effect of clenbuterol was not significant. CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: Stimulation of glucose uptake by 10 pM BRL37344 and clenbuterol involves different atypical pharmacologies. Nanomolar concentrations of BRL37344 and clenbuterol, probably acting via beta2-adrenoceptors, have opposite effects on glucose uptake. The agonists preferentially stimulate fat rather than carbohydrate oxidation, but stimulation of endogenous fat oxidation cannot explain why 100 nM clenbuterol inhibited 2-deoxyglucose uptake.
