Insulinotropic action of glucose can be categorized as 1) triggering of release, 2) augmentation of exocytosis elicited by Ca2+, and 3) time-dependent potentiation (TDP) of the exocytotic machinery. Glucose-induced closure of ATP-sensitive K+ (K+ATP) channel is required for the first but not for the latter two. We examined the legitimacy of a novel… CONTINUE READING
