Characterising changes in a proteome of islets and islet cell types during progression to type 2 diabetes

Characterizing changes in a proteome through pathogenesis of diseases can provide unparalleled insights into the mechanisms underpinning disease. In this project, using flow cytomet 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...

Sorting proinsulin into secretory vesicles

Reduction in glucose-stimulated mature insulin secretion and increased constitutive and regulated secretion of proinsulin are characteristics of β-cell failure. This may be due more...
