Hughes and colleagues study cilia and Ca2+ waves in pancreatic islet leader beta cells  

In March, Jing Hughes, MD, PhD and colleagues had their work titled “Molecular phenotyping of single pancreatic islet leader beta cells by ‘Flash-Seq,’” published by Life Sciences.  Stimulation of insulin secretion occurs by high glucose from increases in cytosolic Ca2+ within pancreatic beta cells. Recent data has also shown that subpopulations of beta cells exist, […]
