Scientists have conducted a number of experiments and research has shown that the cells of the intestine is able to transform into cells that synthesize insulin. It is pathology or insulin deficiency underlies the development of diabetes, according to News Track India.
Part of the insulin cells is localized in the intestine. Their transplantation into the pancreas will partially help patients with endocrine disorders. You can also appeal to stem cells. Through a series of transformations of the original cell can turn into beta cells and produce insulin. Scientists have managed to conduct a series of experiments on intestinal cells and to transform cells of the intestinal epithelium in acinar cells.
In experiments on laboratory mice, researchers found that the intestine is also involved in endocrine function. Special cells of the intestine were named new islet cells. They developed insulin and were generally similar to Langerhans cells of the pancreas. Expression preprogramming factors in the intestine allows to obtain cells that produce insulin from the intestines. Given that the cells of the intestinal epithelium are many and they are constantly regenerate, it can be argued that scientists are on the verge of a great discovery for the treatment of diabetes.
