The effect of serotonin on in vitro insulin secretion and biosynthesis in mice

The effect of serotonin on insulin secretion and biosynthesis was studied using isolated islets of mice. Serotonin produced a small stimulatory effect on insulin secretion when glucose was present in the incubation medium at a low concentration. On the other hand, an inhibition of insulin secretion was obtained with serotonin when glucose in the medium… CONTINUE READING
