Abstract

Background/Aims: Pancreatic endocrine cells are multifunctional, differentiated cells originating from the differentiation of foregut endodermal precursors. Identification and transplantation of endocrine precursor cells appear to be the ultimate solution to diabetes mellitus, which requires lifelong treatment. Knowledge about specific markers that are used in the determination of precursor cells is limited.
