Cell-cell contact influences proliferative marker expression and apoptosis in MIN6 cells grown in islet-like structures

Abstract

Cell to cell interactions play an important role in the development and maintenance of the beta cell phenotype. Here, we have investigated whether E-cadherin plays a role in regulating the growth of insulin-secreting MIN6 cells configured as three-dimensional islet-like clusters (pseudoislets). Pseudoislets form by cell aggregation rather than by… (More)
