Every 3 months) to induce a predictable menstrual bleed. 2). b-cells in the islets of Langerhans release insulin in two phases. In the first phase insulin release is triggered rapidly in response to increased blood glucose levels. The second phase is a sustained, slow release of newly formed vesicles that are triggered independently of glucose. During the first phase of insulin release, glucose enters the b-cells through the glucose transporter (GLUT-2), and through glycolysis and the respiratory cycle multiple high-energy adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules are produced, leading to the ATP-controlled potassium channels (Kþ) closing and the cell membrane depolarizing.
Examples include glucocorticoids and nicotinic acid. Patients receiving interferon-a have been reported to develop diabetes associated with islet cell antibodies and, in certain instances, severe insulin deficiency.
