    Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an incretin secreted from enteroendocrine preproglucagon (PPG)-expressing cells (traditionally known as L cells) in response to luminal nutrients that potentiates insulin secretion. Augmentation of endogenous GLP-1 secretion might well represent a novel therapeutic target for diabetes treatment in addition to the incretin-associated drugs currently in use. In this study, we found that PPG cells substantially express carbonic anhydrase 8 (CAR8), which has been reported to inhibit inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) binding to the IP3 receptor and subsequent Ca2+ efflux from the endoplasmic reticulum in neuronal cells. In vitro experiments using STC-1 cells demonstrated that Car8 knockdown increases long-chain fatty acid (LCFA)-stimulated GLP-1 secretion. This effect was reduced in the presence of phospholipase C (PLC) inhibitor; in addition, Car8 knockdown increased the intracellular Ca2+ elevation caused by α-linolenic acid, indicating that CAR8 exerts its effect on GLP-1 secretion via the PLC/IP3/Ca2+ pathway. Car8wdl null mutant mice showed significant increase in GLP-1 response to oral corn oil administration compared with that in wild-type littermates, with no significant change in intestinal GLP-1 content. These results demonstrate that CAR8 negatively regulates GLP-1 secretion from PPG cells in response to LCFAs, suggesting the possibility of augmentation of postprandial GLP-1 secretion by CAR8 inhibition.NEW & NOTEWORTHY This study focused on the physiological significance of carbonic anhydrase 8 (CAR8) in GLP-1 secretion from enteroendocrine preproglucagon (PPG)-expressing cells. We found an inhibitory role of CAR8 in LCFA-induced GLP-1 secretion in vitro and in vivo, suggesting a novel therapeutic approach to diabetes and obesity through augmentation of postprandial GLP-1 secretion by CAR8 inhibition.
