By Illani Atwater, Bernat Soria

Pancreatic a-cell biophysics has gone through a veritable informa­ tion explosion some time past years. unmarried channel and macroscopic currents became simply available following the advent of the patch clamp strategy. as well as this new method, additional improvement of innovations for optical measurements, ion-sensitive microelectrodes, permeabilized cells and mathematical modelling have lately additional to the now classical strategies of membrane power recording and tracer flux size. The foreign Workshop on Biophysics of the Pancreatic a-Cell held in Alicante (Spain) on Sep­ tember 30 - October 1, 1985, has now given us the chance to percentage stories with those new options utilized to the a-cell. extra­ extra this used to be the 1st social gathering for many of the teams doing patch­ clamp reports of the a-cell to choose acceptable nomenclature and to discuss the several features of the a-cell ionic channels. To make this data on hand to the bigger medical neighborhood a list of the assembly has been assembled during this booklet. it's a choice of study papers by means of major scientists on the meet­ ing engaged on biophysical, biochemical and physiological features. of secretion. We grouped their contributions in seven sections, includ­ ing new experimental techniques, K-channels, Ca-channels, function of ionic channels, intracellular ionized calcium, neural law and mechanisms of insulin liberate. every one part offers an account of the nation of the matter on the time of the assembly, and the themes are analyzed from the various views of a number of the participants.
