The effect of gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP), glucagon-like peptide-1(7-36) amide, (GLP-1(7-36) amide), glucagon-like peptide-2 (GLP-2), glucagon and insulin on fatty acid synthesis in explants of rat adipose tissue from various sites was investigated. GIP, GLP-1(7-36) amide and insulin stimulated fatty acid synthesis, as determined by measuring the incorporation of [14C]acetate into saponifiable fat, in a dose-dependent manner, over the concentration range 5-15 ng/ml (0.87-2.61 nmol/l) for insulin and 0.5-7.5 ng/ml for GIP (0.10-1.50 nmol/l) and GLP-1(7-36) amide (0.15-2.27 nmol/l). Insulin and GIP caused a significantly greater stimulation of [14C]acetate incorporation into fatty acids in omental adipose tissue than in either epididymal or subcutaneous adipose tissue. Both GIP and GLP-1(7-36) amide had the ability to stimulate fatty acid synthesis within the physiological range of the circulating hormones. At lower concentrations of the hormones, GLP-1(7-36) amide was a more potent stimulator of fatty acid synthesis than GIP in omental adipose tissue culture; the basal rate of fatty acid synthesis was 0.41 +/- 0.03 pmol acetate incorporated/mg wet weight tissue per 2 h; at 0.10 nmol hormone/1 1.15 +/- 0.10 and 3.40 +/- 0.12 pmol acetate incorporated/mg wet weight tissue per 2 h for GIP and GLP-1(7-36) amide respectively (P less than 0.01). GLP-2 and glucagon were without effect on fatty acid synthesis in omental adipose tissue. The study indicates that GIP and GLP-1(7-36)amide, in addition to stimulating insulin secretion, may play a direct physiological role in vivo, in common with insulin, in promoting fatty acid synthesis in adipose tissue.
