Although neurotransmitters are present in pancreatic islets of Langerhans and can be shown to alter hormone secretion, their precise physiological roles in islet function and their cellular mechanisms of action are unclear. Recent research has identified specific neurotransmitter receptor isoforms in islets that may be important physiologically, because selective receptor agonists activate islet ion channels, modify intracellular [Ca2+], and affect secretion. This article focuses on the… CONTINUE READING
