Human glucose-dependent insulin-secreting cell line

Image Number 11 for United States Patent #6642003.

Disclosed herein is a novel cell line of human pancreatic cells that secrete insulin in a glucose-dependent manner. The cell line comprises pancreatic cells, such as PANC-1 cells, which are transfected so as to express IDX-1 and cultured in GLP-1. The cell line may be used to investigate the function and development of pancreatic cells, as well as to test the efficacy of drugs that stimulate insulin secretion.
