Normal glucagon signaling and β-cell function after near-total α-cell ablation in adult mice

Published in Diabetes. 2011, vol. 60, no. 11, p. 2872-82
Abstract To evaluate whether healthy or diabetic adult mice can tolerate an extreme loss of pancreatic α-cells and how this sudden massive depletion affects β-cell function and blood glucose homeostasis.
