From: A local glucose-and oxygen concentration-based insulin secretion model for pancreatic islets

Figure 4

Glucose-induced insulin secretion in perifused human islets in response to stepwise glucose increments. Glucose concentration in the perifusing solution increases from 1 mM (G1) to 30 mM (G30) as indicated. Values calculated with the present model (red line, — ) are shown superimposed on the same time-scale over data determined experimentally (blue disks, ; redrawn from [40]).
