Chronic palmitate exposure impairs glucose-stimulated insulin secretion and other aspects of β-cell function, but the underlying mechanisms are not known. Using various live-cell fluorescence imaging approaches, we show here that long-term palmitate treatment influences cAMP signaling in pancreatic β-cells. Glucose stimulation of mouse and human β-cells(More)
The islets of Langerhans contain different types of endocrine cells, which are crucial for glucose homeostasis. β- and α-cells that release insulin and glucagon, respectively, are most abundant, whereas somatostatin-producing δ-cells and particularly pancreatic polypeptide-releasing PP-cells are more scarce. Studies of islet cell function are hampered by(More)
