Genetic factors play an important role in determining who among obese people will develop diabetes. This pathway triggers the exocytosis of secretory granules SGs containing insulin.
These proteins have a wide range of functions 12 — 14. There is extensive debate in the field about the involvement of specific receptors in SG biogenesis.
Some SG cargo proteins, when expressed in nonendocrine cells, can form SG-like vesicles through protein aggregation 24.
However, these vesicles do not replicate all of the characteristics of bona fide SGs.
Aggregation of insulin occurs after proinsulin is converted to insulin, indicating that the sorting to the immature SGs precedes aggregation 25 — 28.
The issue of aggregation versus specific receptor-mediated targeting remains unresolved.
These organelles, like mammalian SGs, are triggered for exocytosis and engage essentially the same molecular machinery e. Therefore, the insulin-to-glucose ratio in the KO mice is lower, further highlighting a subtle defect in glucose tolerance Supplemental Figure 3 E.
Intraperitoneal insulin tolerance tests showed a similar degree of insulin sensitivity between the WT and KO lean mice Supplemental Figure 3 F. We therefore stratified the mice according to body weight gain and compared the glucose tolerance curves of the WT and KO mice that responded to the diet.
This reduction in insulin seemed insufficient to account for the striking visual appearance of the islets. As expected, the insulin signal was the most prominent Figure 2 B, left.
Loss of SGs can occur as a consequence of diabetes 33.
These larger-sized islets, however, appear very fragile and would possibly be disrupted during islet isolation and thus were underrepresented in the islet preparations.
These data predict that proinsulin should accumulate in a compartment preceding SGs. He was treated with doxycycline for 30 days. A coronary angiogram done after recovery showed normal epicardial arteries.
The case illustrates the importance of a careful examination of the peripheral smear, with a high index of clinical suspicion, which led to prompt treatment and complete recovery of the patient.
