This proposal has the following objectives: 1) study of the mechanisms of pancreatic beta cell destruction during the early phases of type 2 diabetes (the search for strategies to inhibit that process, as well as to recover the cell mass in different animal models); 2) morphofunctional characterization of the pancreatic islets of mice submitted to protein restriction or to a high-lipid diet and receiving taurine supplementation; 3) energy metabolism, intracellular calcium homeostasis, and mitochondrial oxidative stress in cell death; and 4) inflammation and immune response in obesity.
