Abstract

Glucose- or insulin resistance-mediated β-cell replication serves as a useful physiological model of β-cell mass expansion to study the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes. Lakshmipathi et al. (2016) report that PKCζ activation is crucial for compensatory β-cell proliferation induced by glucose stimulation or high-fat diet-feeding.
