Reinbothe T, Ivarsson R, Li D, Niazi O, Jing X, Zhang E, et al. Glutaredoxin-1 mediates NADPH-dependent stimulation of calcium-dependent insulin secretion. Mol Endocrinol. 2009;23:893-900 pubmed publisher
..This effect is mediated by the NADPH acceptor protein GRX-1 by a local redox reaction that accelerates beta-cell exocytosis and, in turn, insulin secretion. ..
