Abstract

We have examined, in liver and extrahepatic tissues, the effects of fasting on total insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) mRNA levels, on levels of different IGF-I mRNAs generated by alternative splicing of the primary IGF-I transcript, and on IGF-I receptor binding and mRNA levels. A 48-h fast decreased total IGF-I mRNA levels by ~80% in lung and liver, ~60% in kidney and muscle, and only ~30-40% in stomach, brain, and testes. In heart, IGF-I mRNA levels did not change. The levels of the different splicing variants, however, were essentially coordinately regulated within a given tissue. Specific 125I-IGF-I binding in lung, testes, stomach, kidney, and heart was increased by fasting by ~30-100%, whereas in brain 125I-IGF-I binding did not change in response to fasting. In tissues in which fasting increased IGF-I receptor number, receptor mRNA levels increased ~1.6- to 2.5-fold, whereas when IGF-I receptor number was unchanged in response to fasting, receptor mRNA levels did not change. These data demonstrate that the change in IGF-I and IGF-I receptor mRNA levels during fasting is quantitatively different in different tissues and suggest that regulation of IGF-I and IGF-I receptor gene expression by fasting is discoordinate.
