Background In RNAseq data from human islet donors,- CARTPT- expression levels correlated with insulin, exocytosis genes and key beta-cell transcription factors.- Insufficient insulin release and hyperglucagonaemia are culprits in type 2 diabetes. Cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART, encoded by Cartpt) affects islet hormone secretion and beta cell survival in vitro in rats, and Cart (-/-) mice have diminished insulin secretion. Established a potential role for cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript (CARTPT) in dominant follicle selection in cattle. CARTPT expression is elevated in subordinate versus dominant follicles, and treatment with the mature form of the CARTPT peptide (CART) decreases follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)-stimulated granulosa cell estradiol production in vitro and follicular fluid estradiol and granulosa cell CYP19A1 mRNA in vivo.
Description A DNA sequence encoding the human CARTPT (NP_004282.1) (Met1-Leu116) was expressed with the Fc region of mouse IgG1 at the C-terminus.
