Interaction Information:

Comment Pdx-1, Nkx6.1, and MafA, all of which are beta cell transcription factors that are involved in the activation of insulin transcription and the regulation of insulin secretion, are unaffected by the absence of NeuroD. These results indicate that the defective GSIS observed in neuroD beta-CKO mice is not a secondary consequence of altered regulation of these transcription factors.
