4,4′-dithiocyanatostilbene-2,2′-disulfonic acid (DIDS), an inhibitor of the volume-sensitive anion channel, was used to investigate the role of this channel in the stimulation of rat pancreatic β-cells by glucose and by tolbutamide. Glucose-stimulated electrical activity in β-cells was markedly and reversibly inhibited by DIDS. The increase in cytosolic [Ca2+] and stimulated insulin release evoked by glucose were also inhibited by DIDS. In contrast to its inhibitory effect on glucose-induced β-cell activity, DIDS had no effect on electrical activity, the rise in [Ca2+] i or insulin release induced by tolbutamide.
