"We have established insulin-secreting cell line, L1-INS/fur cells, by engineering 3T3-L1 murine preadipocytes with human preproinsulin cDNA. Analysis with HPLC, mass spectrometry and immunological assay identified human insulin in the culture medium. Notably, secretion of insulin from L1-INS/fur cell was increased 8.2 times higher after induction of cellular differentiation," investigators in Japan report.
"The increment of insulin secretion during differentiation was further enhanced by additive treatment with thiazolidinedione, a promoting agent of adipocyte differentiation," said K....
