Diabetologia, 58(9), 2056-2063 (2015-06-10)
In humans, the rate of beta cell proliferation declines rapidly during the postnatal period and remains low throughout adult life. Recent studies suggest that this may reflect the distribution of cell cycle regulators which, unusually, are located in the cytosolic

Human adipose tissue-derived stem cells (hASCs) are considered an ideal tool for the supply of insulin-producing cells to treat diabetes mellitus, with high differentiation efficiency. Islet neogenesis-associated protein (INGAP) is an initiator of islet neogenesis, and the peptide sequence comprising

The transplantation of porcine islets of Langerhans to treat type 1 diabetes may provide a solution to the demand for insulin-producing cells. Porcine islets encapsulated in agarose-agarose macrobeads have been shown to function in nonimmunosuppressed xenogeneic models of both streptozotocin-induced

Obesity has been associated with elevated plasma anandamide levels. In addition, anandamide has been shown to stimulate insulin secretion in vitro, suggesting that anandamide might be linked to hyperinsulinemia. To determine whether high-fat diet-induced insulin resistance increases anandamide levels and
