Glucose Decouples Intracellular Ca2+ Activity from Glucagon Secretion in Mouse Pancreatic Islet Alpha-Cells


The mechanisms of glucagon secretion and its suppression by glucose are presently unknown. This study investigates the relationship between intracellular calcium levels ([Ca(2+)](i)) and hormone secretion under low and high glucose conditions. We examined the effects of modulating ion channel activities on [Ca(2+)](i) and hormone secretion from ex vivo… (More)
