Effect of hypothyroidism on the composition and turnover rate of islet phospholipids

Enlace externo

It has already been demonstrated that the pancreatic B cells of hypothyroid rats have a reduced capacity to release insulin in response to glucose (l). This impaired B cell function may be partly due to a diminished rate of glucose oxidation and net calcium uptake associated with ultrastructural alteration of the pancreatic islets (2). To identify further other factors responsible for this diminished B cell secretory function, we studied the composition and the turnover rate of phospholipids in islets obtained from hypothyroid rats.
