Presentation Transcript

  1. Mechanism of Insulin Secretion by -cells ROLE OF THE KATP CHANNEL

  2. NO KATP CHANNEL ACTIVITY, MEMBRANE DEPOLARIZATION AND HIGHER [Ca2+]i IN PANCREATIC Kir6.2-/- β-CELLS

  3. GLUCOSE AND TOLBUTAMIDE NO LONGER STIMUALTE INCREASES IN [Ca2+]i IN Kir6.2-/- β-CELLS

  4. GLUCOSE NO LONGER STIMULATE INSULIN SECRETION IN Kir6.2-/- β-CELLS

  5. NEAR NORMAL GLUCOSE TOLERANCE AND INCREASED INSULIN SENSITIVITY IN Kir6.2-/- MICE

  6. INFILTRATION OF α-CELLS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE Kir6.2-/- PANCREATIC ISLETS
