Islets of Langerhans contains critical background information, and recent advances made in essentially all areas of islet research. It is a major reference book, the first of its kind, for islet.
The pancreatic islets or islets of Langerhans are the regions of the pancreas that contain its endocrine (hormone-producing) cells, discovered in by German pathological anatomist Paul Langerhans. The pancreatic islets constitute 1 to 2% of the pancreas volume and receive 10–15% of its blood flow.
The pancreatic islets are arranged in density routes throughout the human MeSH: D Islets of Langerhans, irregularly shaped patches of endocrine tissue located within the pancreas of most vertebrates.
They are named for the German physician Paul Langerhans, who first described them in The islets consist of four distinct cell types, of which three produce important hormones.

At glucose concentrations below 3 mM, the cell is electrically silent with a resting. The islets of Langerhans comprise approximately % of the weight of the pancreas and are more concentrated in the tail than in the head or body of the pancreas.
Islets can be isolated and separated completely from the exocrine pancreas by the collagenase technique, and the isolated islets will form, store, and release insulin in vitro. This procedure has made it feasible to.
It is a major reference book, the first of its kind, for islet researchers, and diabetes researchers. Anybody, including the experts, and the beginners, interested in the study of islet physiology, and diabetes, will find this book extremely : Hardcover.

Biophysics of the pancreatic [beta]-cell. [Illani Atwater; Eduardo Rojas; Bernat Soria;] -- Pancreatic B-cell biophysics has undergone a veritable information explosion in the past two years. Single channel and macroscopic currents have become easily accessible following the introduction of.
Pancreatic islets, also called islets of Langerhans, are groups of cells in your pancreas. The pancreas is an organ that makes hormones to help your body break down and use food.
Islets contain several types of cells, including beta cells that make the hormone insulin. Insulin helps your body use glucose for energy and helps control your blood. The islets of Langerhans contain from a few hundred to several thousand hormone-secreting endocrine cells.
The islets are found throughout the pancreas but are most abundant in the tail region of the gland. The human pancreas contains, on average, about 1 million islets, which vary in size from 50 to |xm in diameter. Each islet is separated from the surrounding acinar. Islets of Langerhans and the beginners, interested in the study of islet physiology, and diabetes, will find this book extremely useful.
The book is robust in its breadth: it deals with anatomy, histology, ultra-structure, evolution and comparative anatomy, imaging, developmental biology, programming, apoptosis, mitochondrial function. Sensing any kind of danger in the skin, the Langerhans cells, located in the epidermis and the dermis, are like the air traffic controllers of the immune system.
They send out special agents- immune cells such as T cells and B cells - to capture foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses, and fight off injuries like cuts and scrapes.
The islets of Langerhans are of vital importance to the body as they produce insulin, a prime regulator of glucose homeostasis. The name ‘islets of Langerhans’ was coined by Edouard Laguesse (–), a histologist working at the University of Lille, who, in a seminal paper incorrectly deduced that they are involved in endocrine.
Islets of Langerhans are micro-organs located in the pancreas and composed of at least four types of endocrine cells. The α- and β-cells are the most abundant and also the most important in that they secrete hormones (glucagon and insulin, respectively) crucial for Cited by: Cerf CHAPTER 6: Nutrient regulation of insulin secretion and b-cell functional integrity - Philip Newsholme, Celine Gaudel, and Neville H McClenaghan CHAPTER 7: Electrophysiology of islet cells - Gisela Drews, Peter Krippeit-Drews and Martina Dufer CHAPTER 8: ATP sensitive potassium channels in health and disease - Rebecca Clark and Peter Proks.

Supply - Creating More Insulin-Producing Cells. Islet transplantation has clearly shown the ability to restore natural insulin production and normalize blood sugar levels in people with type 1 diabetes. But, some hurdles remain before this cell replacement therapy can be offered more broadly to those who can benefit.
Currently, islets used. We have combined the patch-clamp technique with microfluorimetry of the cytoplasmic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) to characterize Na/Ca exchange in mouse β-cells and to determine its importance for [Ca2+]i buffering and shaping of glucose-induced electrical activity.
The exchanger contributes to Ca2+ removal at [Ca2+]i above 1μM, where it accounts for >35% of the total Cited by: Electrophysiology. Electrical activity was recorded from superficial cells in intact pancreatic islets using the perforated patch whole‐cell recording mode as described elsewhere (Göpel et al.
