Project description

In order to identify novel genes important for pancreas development and function we identified a novel receptor, which modulates Ins/IGF signaling. Since the deregulation of the Insulin-like growth factors IGF/Ins signaling leads to diabetes and cancer, we try to assess the in vivo function of the novel receptor gene in our generated transgenic mice. In this project we would also like to investigate whether the lack of the novel receptor has an impact of function or proliferation of pancreatic ß-cells. In order to do this, we generated ß-cell specific inducible knockout mice.
