Abstract: Glucose and other nutrients regulate many aspects of pancreatic islet physiology. This includes not only insulin release, but also insulin synthesis and storage and other aspects of β-cell biology, including cell proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation, and gene expression. This implies that in addition to the well-described signals for insulin release, other intracellular signaling mechanisms are needed. Here we describe the role of global and local Ca 2+ signals in insulin release, the regulation of these signals by new membrane receptors, and the generation of nuclear Ca 2+ signals involved in gene expression. An integrated view of these pathways should improve the present description of the β-cell biology and provide new targets for novel drugs.
