Investigations on isolated islets of Langerhans in vitro. XIII. Experiments concerning the preparation conditions with collagenase



Investigations on isolated islets of Langerhans in vitro. XIII. Experiments concerning the preparation conditions with collagenase



Endokrinologie 67(1): 67-78



During the digestion of pancreatic pieces with collagenase for prepartion of isolated islets the enzymes in incubation medium (collangenolytic and/or proteolytic) can alter the secretion behavior of A- and B-cells. Insulin release after such an enzymatic attack is characterized by an enhanced basal secretion and a diminished and delayed glucose response. Overdigestion results in a decreased glucagon secretion in response to arginine, a diminished insulin content, and a decreased thiol-protein-disulfide-oxidoreductase activity of the islets. Increased albumin concentrations did not prevent the collagenase effect.
