Pancreatic alpha-cells exhibit oscillations in cytosolic Ca2+ (Ca-c(2+)), which control pulsatile glucagon (GCG) secretion. However, the mechanisms that modulate alpha-cell Ca-c(2+) oscillations have not been elucidated. As beta-cell Ca-c(2-) oscillations are regulated in part by Ca2+-activated K+(K-SLOW) currents, this work investigated the role of K-SLOW, in alpha-cell Ca(2+ )handling and GCG ...
