Answer to Question #90650 in Cell Biology for ahmad

Question #90650
Islet cells from a donor are injected into a patient with diabetes. If successful, the donor islet cells would release insulin into the bloodstream to regulate blood glucose levels. Why would this treatment NOT cure type 2 diabetes?

islet cells would produce only insulin, not glucagon, which would also be required to regulate blood glucose
in type 2 diabetes, glycogen is lacking, not insulin
islet cells would produce digestive enzymes instead of insulin
in type 2 diabetes, insulin is still produced, but the target cells do not respond
Expert's answer

in type 2 diabetes, insulin is still produced, but the target cells do not respond
