Free fatty acids (FFAs) acutely stimulate insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells, whereas impair β-cell function following long term exposure. GPR40, a FFAs receptor, has been demonstrated to be activated by both medium and long chain FFAs and played an important role in insulin release. This study was performed to determine the contribution of GPR40 to short- and/or long-term effects of FFAs on glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) and the expression of PDX-1 and GLUT2 in pancreatic… CONTINUE READING
