Antioxidant N-acetylcysteine protects pancreatic β-cells against aldosterone-induced oxidative stress and apoptosis in female db/db mice and insulin-producing MIN6 cells.


Previous studies have shown that primary aldosteronism is associated with glucose-related metabolic disorders. However, the mechanisms by which aldosterone (ALDO) triggers β-cell dysfunction remains unclear. This study aimed to investigate whether oxidative stress is involved in and whether the antioxidant N-acetylcysteine (NAC) or the mineralocorticoid… (More)
