New map of insulin pathway could lead to better diabetes drugs

A team led by scientists at the Scripps Research Institute has created the first comprehensive roadmap of the protein interactions that enable cells in the pancreas to produce, store and secrete the hormone insulin. The finding makes possible a deeper scientific understanding of the insulin secretion process — and how it fails in insulin disorders such as Type 2 diabetes.
