Article Preview

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an extremely ubiquitous polysaccharide of extracellular matrix in body and plays various biological roles. In this study, cell viability, insulin secretion and cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration were investigated in HIT-T15 cells after HA-treatment. The cell viability was determined by the MTT assay while the insulin secretion was detected by ELISA technique. The Flou-3/AM was applied to probe intracellular free calcium concentration. HA (0.25, 0.5, 1.0 mg/dish) increase insulin secretion in the 3 or 25 mM glucose-stimulation for 4 h. Cytosolic Ca2+ fluorescent intensity in HA-treatment groups (0.25, 0.5, 1.0 mg/dish) is significantly higher than that in control group. This study implied that the increasing of insulin secretion of HIT-T15 cells by HA-coating result from the enhancement of cytosolic Ca2+. And these data also provide some information on design biocompatibility when HA used as a biomaterial for bioartificial pancreas.
