the context of diabetes mellitus, n-3 PUFAs have anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing functions ( Kalupahana et al . 2011 ). However, the effect of n-3 PUFAs on insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells is not well recognized. Defects in insulin

linked to insulin secretion has several exclusive features. First, glucose transport is not limiting for its metabolism, and it results in a rapid equilibrium between intracellular and extracellular glucose at all glycemic levels. The second particular

specific deletion of TSC2 in β-cells induced β-cell apoptosis and reduced insulin secretion, after a first phase of β-cell mass expansion ( Shigeyama et al . 2008 ). In the rat, l -leucine, an amino acid known to induce mTORC1 activation, negatively

when there is failure of the β-cell to secrete adequate amounts of insulin ( Kahn 2003 , Andrikopoulos 2010 ). Glucose is the predominant nutrient for insulin secretion, which enters the β-cell via the glucose transporter GLUT-2 and gets phosphorylated

all five receptors are expressed in the islets ( Ludvigsen et al . 2004 ). Results from studies using SSTR-deficient mice (SSTR1, SSTR2 or SSTR5) revealed changes in both basal and stimulated insulin secretion ( Strowski et al . 2000 , Wang et al
