Therapeutic potential of VIP vs PACAP in diabetes

Ahter D Sanlioglu, Bahri Karacay, Mustafa Kemal Balci, Thomas S Griffith, Salih Sanlioglu
2012 Journal of Molecular Endocrinology  
Pancreatic islet cell death, but not the defect in new islet formation or beta-cell replication, has been blamed for the decrease in beta-cell mass observed in T2D patients.  ...  Therefore, an ideal beta-cell-preserving agent is expected to protect beta cells from apoptosis and stimulate postprandial insulin secretion along with increasing beta-cell replication and/or islet neogenesis  ...  In situ hybridization studies of pancreatic islets demonstrated the presence of both PAC1 and VPAC2 expressions in islets, but not VPAC1 (Inagaki et al. 1994 , Kulkarni et al. 1995 .  ...
