The pancreatic beta cell produces insulin: the key hormone for lowering blood glucose levels. Beta cell dysfunction can lead to diabetes, so understanding how beta cells develop to a functional state is of vital importance for treating diabetes. We study the cooperative role of two transcription factors, Pdx1 and Oc1, in promoting beta cell development and function.
