The mechanisms and clinical importance of pulsatile insulin release are presented against the background of more than half a century of companionship with the islets of Langerhans. The insulin-secreting beta-cells are oscillators with intrinsic variations of cytoplasmic ATP and Ca(2+). Within the islets the beta-cells are mutually entrained into a common rhythm by gap junctions and diffusible factors (ATP).
