The effect of pancreastatin on the release of insulin, glucagon, and somatostatin was studied in the isolated perfused rat pancreas. After an initial equilibration period (-20 to 0 min) with a basal glucose concentration (3.3 mM), the pancreata were perfused with either 16.7 mM glucose (0-40 min) or with 20 mM arginine (0-20 min). Pancreastatin was(More)
The aim of the study was to examine the association among advanced glycation end products (AGEs), extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs), and investigate whether AGEs affect type I collagen (COL-I) through EMMPRIN or MMPs.
