Abstract

The adult pancreas is a developmentally stable organ with limited mitotic activity. This minimal mitotic activity proves critical in insulin- dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) since the pathogenesis is characterized by a selective and permanent destruction of islet β cells. The IFNγ transgenic mouse model of islet regeneration elucidates the differentiation pathway involved in the regeneration of functional β cells from ductal precursors and reveals the functional plasticity of the adult pancreas.
