Inhibitory effects of PGE1 on glucose induced insulin release in isolated islets of Langerhans.


Since prostaglandins are increasingly shown to play an important role on insulin secretion, an evaluation of the PGE1 action on insulin release by isolated islets of Langerhans has been undertaken. Pancreatic islets were prepared after a modification of the Lacy and Kostianovsky technique and incubated in Hanks solution containing glucose 1.63 or 16.3 mM… (More)
