Recent advances in molecular biological techniques have made the search for the factors in pancreas regeneration more intensive. Many transcription factors and growth factors have been suggested to be involved in the proliferation, differentiation, and maintenance of endocrine and exocrine pancreas. Among the transcription factors, PDX-1 has been examined in a major pancreatectomy model and is suggested to play a role in beta-cell differentiation. Among the growth factors and related peptides… CONTINUE READING
