AlphaScreen Insulin Detection Assay using AlphaLISA Acceptor Beads

Abstract

Insulin production and secretion by the beta cells in the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas is controlled by blood glucose levels. Insulin promotes the uptake of glucose by target tissues and, thus, prevents hyperglycemia by shuttling glucose into tissues for storage. Beta cell dysfunction and the concomitant decrease in insulin production can result in… (More)
