Calcium-independent potentiation of insulin release by cyclic AMP in single beta-cells.

Abstract:

How does cyclic AMP potentiate insulin secretion from pancreatic islet beta-cells? This question is fundamental to understanding how hormones such as glucagon, which elevates cAMP, stimulate insulin secretion and so contribute to the normal secretory response of the islet. It is well established that a rise in the cytoplasmic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) is essential for insulin secretion and therefore cAMP has been proposed to act by elevating [Ca2+]i. But studies on permeabilized beta-cells...
