Abstract Glutamate dehydrogenase 1 (GDH1) contributes to glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in murine β-cells, but not to basic insulin release. The implications of these findings for human biology are unclear as humans have two GDH-specific enzymes: hGDH1 (GLUD1-encoded) and hGDH2 (GLUD2-encoded), a novel enzyme that is highly activated by ADP and L-leucine. Here we studied in vivo glucose homeostasis in transgenic (Tg) mice generated by inserting the GLUD2 gene and its putative regulatory el...
