  1. 1. Exocytosis in insulin secreting cells - role of SNARE-proteins

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Jenny Vikman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; calcium channel; cAMP; syntaxin 1; SNAP-25; SNARE; exocytosis; Insulin secretion; pancreatic beta-cells;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is marked by deterioration in pancreatic β-cell function. SNARE-proteins are crucial for the fusion of insulin granules with the plasma membrane, a prerequisite for insulin secretion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Architecture and function of the insulin granule secretion machinery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peng Yin; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Docking; Syntaxin-1A; Voltage-gated Ca2 Channels; Exocytosis; Type-2 Diabetes;

    Abstract : Insulin is released into the blood stream to normalize elevated blood glucose, for example after a meal. The hormone is synthesized by β-cells in the endocrine pancreas, and stored in small vesicles, known as secretory granules, until required. When glucose is elevated, these granules undergo regulated exocytosis and thereby secrete the hormone. READ MORE

  3. 3. Role of syntaxin-11 and munc18-2 in lymphocyte cytotoxic granule exocytosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Martha-Lena Müller; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Mutations in genes required for the exocytosis of cytotoxic granules by NK cells and cytotoxic T lymphocytes are associated with early-onset familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL). In this project, we examined how certain missense mutations in genes encoding syntaxin-11 and Munc18-2 abolish exocytosis and cause disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on proteins involved in the molecular regulation of insulin exocytosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Wei Zhang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Actin; ADP; ATP; Ca2 channel; CAPS; beta-cells; CSP; exocytosis; GK rat; insulin; islet; Mint; Munc-18; NSF; PI 4-kinase; PI 4 P; PI 4; 5 P2; alpha-SNAP; SNAP-25; synaptotagmin III; syntaxin; tomosyn; type 2 diabetes mellitus; VAMP-2.;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a disease characterized by impaired insulin secretion and insulin resistance. Better understanding of molecular mechanisms of insulin secretion may help to optimize type 2 diabetes management. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular mechanisms of biphasic insulin secretion

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nikhil R. Gandasi; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Exocytosis; Insulin secretion; Membrane trafficking; Microscopy; Diabetes; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Pancreatic beta-cells secrete insulin in response to increase in blood glucose concentration with a rapid first phase and slower, sustained second phase. This secretion pattern is similar in entire pancreas, isolated islets of Langerhans and single beta-cells and it is disrupted in type 2-diabetes. READ MORE
