Abstract: Adipocytes, which secrete a spectrum of adipokines, play an integral role in metabolism via communications with other endocrine cells. In the present work, we have studied the interplays between adipokines and catecholamines, using 3T3-L1 adipocytes and PC12 cells as the cell models and an integrative experimental platform. We demonstrate that all catecholamines inhibit vesicle trafficking and secretion of leptin and resistin through β-adrenergic receptors, while leptin and resistin enhance the vesicle trafficking and secretion of catecholamines through PKC, PKA, MAPK kinase and Ca2+ dependent pathways. The crosstalks between adipokines and catecholamines were further corroborated by co-culturing 3T3-L1 adipocytes and PC12 cells. Our findings highlight the importance of adipo-adrenal axis in energy metabolism and the intricate interactions between metabolic hormones.
