Insulin secretion in the intact organism, and by the perfused pancreas and groups of isolated perifused islets, is pulsatile. We have proposed a metabolic model of glucose-induced insulin secretion in which oscillations in the ATP/ADP ratio drive alterations in metabolic and electrical events that lead to insulin release. A key prediction of our model is(More)

1. Rat pancreatic islets were isolated and then maintained in culture for 2-4 days before being incubated in groups of 100 in the presence of different glucose (0-20 mM) or CaCl2 (1.2-4.2 mM) concentrations, or with uncoupler. 2. Increases in extracellular glucose concentration resulted in increases in the amount of active, non-phosphorylated, pyruvate(More)
Three cases of rupture of the interventricular septum occurring coincident with acute inferior myocardial infarction are reported and the relevant literature is reviewed. One patient under-went successful surgical repair and, in addition, had an aneurysmectomy. Clues and pitfalls in diagnosis as well as the possible confusion with ruptured papillary muscle(More)
