Oscillations of circulating plasma insulin concentrations in the rat.

Abstract

In previous studies, we found that insulin is secreted in a pulsatile fashion in vitro in isolated rat pancreatic islets. This study evaluated whether similar plasma insulin fluctuations occur in the rat in vivo. Freely moving rats were implanted with a chronic jugular catheter and serial blood samples were obtained 48-72 hrs post surgery. Blood was sampled… (More)
