Can Insulin be Produced from Laboratory Dish? - Diabetes 25

We have talked about role of pancreatic beta cells to produce insulin. These are examples of posts relate to beta cells:


Why Pancreas of Type 2 Diabetic Persons Produce Less Insulin? - Diabetes 3

Could Medicines Affect on Pancreas to Produce Insulin? - Diabetes 4

How to Activate Damaged Beta Cell in Pancreas to Produce Insulin? - Diabetes 21


Recently, researchers have tried to develop beta cells from human stem cells in a dish. It is expected that these beta cells will secrete insulin in response to a given glucose.


First attempted was failed, it is because stem cells interrupted to grow to be pancreas beta cells in the let’s say Petri dish.


Succulent plants in the pot, just for illustration


Scientists knew that specific receptor protein called estrogen related receptor γ (ERRγ) abundant in beta cells. Then scientists injected this receptor protein to improve process of cells maturation in the lab.



Surprisingly, the mature beta cells produce insulin in the Petri dish. For further test, then, the beta cells are transplanted into mice (diabetic mice).


The result is promising that beta cells secrete insulin to respond the high blood sugar level in the mice.


The next steps to find out:

- how to transplant the Petri dish’s beta cells into human being

- can beta cells be function to produce insulin to control sugar level in human?


At least, we see light to help diabetes patients, especially type 1 diabetic patients where their pancreas stop to produce insulin at all.


We are waiting the great finding to treat diabetes in the near future!

  2. Hi, Tanza! ^^
    I believe that is really important to study this topic, because diabetes is a serious problem. I hope that there will a solution in a near future!
    Kisses! :)

  5. Yes sometimes shopping makes fun during pandemic but most of the times there are too much people and I don't want to wait in front of a shop :D
    Heidenheim was pretty nice, especially the castle =)

    Very interesting post. My father has diabetic since his childhood.
    Have a wonderful new week

  16. It would be wonderful to be able to rebuild my pancreas so that it could produce insulin again!
