Role of Transglutaminase in Proinsulin Conversion and Insulin Release
Among the biophysical events associated with insulin release, the translocation of secretory granules and their access to the exocytotic site are thought to be controlled by a microtubular-microfilamentous system. Only limited information is available on the enzymes involved in these mechanical events. This report deals with the possible role of transglutaminase in the secretory process.
