GSK-3β mediates dexamethasone-induced pancreatic β cell apoptosis.

Abstract

AIMS Glucocorticoids, such as dexamethasone, are widely used anti-inflammatory drugs. Their use is frequently associated with the development of steroid- associated diabetes. Pancreatic β-cell dysfunction has been suggested to be one of the main causes of steroid-associated diabetes. However, the mechanism is not fully understood. Glycogen synthase kinase-3… (More)
