β-cell function in obese-hyperglycemic mice [ob/ob Mice]

Abstract [en]

This review summarizes key aspects of what has been learned about the physiology of pancreatic islets and leptin deficiency from studies in obese ob/ob mice. ob/ob Mice lack functional leptin. They are grossly overweight and hyperphagic particularly at young ages and develop severe insulin resistance with hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia. ob/ob Mice have large pancreatic islets. The beta-cells respond adequately to most stimuli, and ob/ob mice have been used as a rich source of pancreatic islets with high insulin release capacity. ob/ob Mice can perhaps be described as a model for the prediabetic state. The large capacity for islet growth and insulin release makes ob/ob mice a good model for studies on how beta-cells can cope with prolonged functional stress.
