The liver--a potential new player in islet regeneration?
Pancreatic islet beta cell mass expands in response to certain physiological conditions such as pregnancy and obesity, but the signaling pathways involved are not well understood. Possible insights come from a newly described regulatory circuit through which obesity-enhanced kinase signaling in the liver triggers expansion of islet mass and enhanced insulin secretion.
