Identifying new important players in insulin homeostasis



Researchers from La Trobe University in Australia and the Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden, partner in the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD e.V.), in Germany have identified that the protein Atp6ap2 is essential for the correct functioning of pancreatic beta cells. When this protein was switched off in the beta cells of mice their blood glucose levels dramatically increased. The results of this international research project, to which the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany also contributed, have now been published in the renowned journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
