Abstract

The aim of this paper was to evaluate the possible interaction between β-cells and some indolamines. The effects of melatonin (MEL) on insulin secretion from rat islets were evaluated. Rat islets were obtained by enzymatic degestion of the pancreas from Sprague-Dawley rats with collagenase (Boehringer).
