Effect of maternal high glycemic index diets on offspring metabolic phenotype

We are uncovering fascinating effects of different sugars (glucose, fructose, sucrose and isomaltulose) on development of embryos and offspring.  High glucose fed mice are sign more...

Characterising insulin secretory granules as a function of age

In β-cells, insulin is stored in secretory granules (SGs). Upon stimulation, these SGs deliver insulin to the bloodstream. It is known that SGs exist in two functionally distin more...
