Nitric oxide (NO) is believed to play an important role in pancreatic islet physiology and pathophysiology. Research in this area has been hampered, however, by the use of indirect methods to measure islet NO. To investigate the role of NO in islet function, we positioned NO-sensitive, recessed-tip microelectrodes in close proximity to individual islets and… CONTINUE READING
