The pancreas is the critical organ controlling blood glucose levels and has been shown to rapidly regenerate after injury. In this study, 60% partial pancreatectomy (PPX) was performed on rats and the protein expression profile was acquired using 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE)/MALDI-TOF analysis. In total, 34 proteins were shown to be up-regulated and 27 proteins were down-regulated after PPX. The up-regulated proteins were found to be involved in inflammation and the down-regulated… CONTINUE READING
