BACKGROUND: ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels are major regulators of glucose-induced insulin secretion in pancreatic beta cells. We have described a dominant heterozygous mutation--E1506K--in the sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) gene (ABCC8) in a Finnish family, which leads to congenital hyperinsulinaemia due to reduction of K(ATP)-channel activity. We aimed to characterise glucose metabolism in adults heterozygous for the E1506K mutation. METHODS: Glucose tolerance was assessed by an o...Expand abstract
