Abstract: Aims/hypothesis Inadequate chaperone function relative to client protein load in the endoplasmic reticulum triggers an adaptive unfolded protein response (UPR), including the integrated stress response (ISR), the latter being also activated by other types of stresses. It is well established that pancreatic beta cells, which synthesise and secrete insulin upon nutrient stimulation, are markedly affected by pathological disruption or excessive activation of the UPR. However, whether and how physiological nutrient stimulation affects the beta cell UPR has been little investigated.
