Circadian Regulation of the Pancreatic Beta Cell

August 19, 2021
By: admin

Dr. Doucette conducted a mini-review study where they have reviewed the recent literature that explores the importance

of the pancreatic islet/beta cell circadian clock in the regulation of various aspects of beta

cell biology, including transcriptional and functional control of daily cycles of insulin secretion

capacity, regulation of postnatal beta cell maturation, and control of the adaptive

responses of the beta cell to metabolic stress and acute injury.
