Endogenously produced reactive oxygen species reportedly stimulate insulin secretion from islet β-cells. However, the molecular machinery that governs the oxidant-induced insulin secretion has yet to be determined. The present study demonstrates, using rat islet β-cell-derived RINm5F cells, the involvement of the transient receptor potential (TRP) cation channels in the insulin secretion induced by the lipid peroxidation product 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal. Short-term (1 h) exposure of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal induced a transient increase in intracellular Ca(2+) concentration and subsequent insulin secretion in a concentration-dependent manner. The increase in intracellular Ca(2+) concentration seemed to be due to an influx through the L-type voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channel, since it was not observed when extracellular Ca(2+) was absent and was inhibited almost completely by diltiazem or nifedipine. Ruthenium red, a non-specific inhibitor of TRP channels, inhibited the Ca(2+) influx and insulin secretion evoked by 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal. Among the TRP channels, TRPA1 was found to be predominantly expressed, not only in RINm5F cells, but also rat islets. TRPA1 agonists, allylisothiocyanate and 15-deoxy-Δ(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2), significantly induced Ca(2+) influx, and a specific inhibitor TRPA1, HC-030031, blocked the effects elicited by 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal. These results suggest that 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal induces Ca(2+) influx via the activation of TRP channels, including TRPA1, which appears to be coupled with the L-type voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channel, and ultimately insulin secretion in RINm5F cells.
