Insulin signalling through ultradian oscillations.

Abstract:

Periodic oscillations appear to be a characteristic of insulin secretion at various different levels. Very rapid pulsations are seen in the isolated beta-cell and islet, while rapid (10- to 15-min) pulsations are seen both in the intact organism and in the isolated pancreas. Ultradian oscillations, particularly evident in situations of sustained exogenous glucose loading, appear to be a characteristic of intact organisms and have been hypothesized to be intrinsic to the normal glucose-insulin...
