Project Details

Description

Pancreatic ß-cells respond to glucose in secreting insulin, this response is amplified by the addition of incretins. The aim of our study is to identify pathways and genes involved in the interplay of incretins (GLP-1, GIP, CCK-A a.o) by microarray experiments on purified rat ß-cells and human purified ß-cells
