Special Issue "The Role of β Cells in Diabetes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2022) | Viewed by 6267
Interests: type 1 and type 2 diabetes; pancreatic beta cell biology
The pancreatic β-cell is critical to the regulation of glucose homeostasis, and a decline in functional β-cell mass is central to the pathogenesis of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This Special Issue of Metabolites will highlight research on the regulation of β-cell mass. Specific topics may include, but are not limited to, agents that stimulate β-cell proliferation, inter-organ or intraislet metabolic or hormonal crosstalk that impacts β-cell mass, novel pathways that inhibit β-cell mass expansion, and metabolic and signaling pathways that impair β-cell function or lead to β-cell death. Moreover, manuscripts highlighting advanced methods or approaches to screening and identifying compounds that impact β-cell mass are welcome, and up to date review articles that highlight recent advances or novel areas of study in this area are also invited.
