To examine the control of pulsatile insulin secretion by an intrapancreatic pacemaker, samples at minute intervals were taken from the portal vein in dogs in vivo and from an isolated perfused pancreas preparation in vitro. Anesthetized dogs had high amplitude pulsatile insulin secretion which was not consistently regular. Fourier transform analysis showed dominant 20- and 10-min periods of spectral power (P less than 0.01). After vagotomy, the relative oscillatory power was reduced from 83% ...Expand abstract
