OBJECTIVE To document the properties of the voltage-gated ion channels in human pancreatic alpha-cells and their role in glucagon release. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Glucagon release was measured from intact islets. [Ca(2+)](i) was recorded in cells showing spontaneous activity at 1 mmol/l glucose. Membrane currents and potential were measured by(More)
