Data are means ± SE for five β-cell and six (non–β-cell) independent experiments. Statistical significance of differences between FFA condition and control was calculated by analysis of variance, followed by paired t test with the Bonferroni correction:

*

P < 0.005,

P < 0.05. Statistical significance of differences between islet β-cells and islet endocrine non–β-cells for identical conditions was calculated by analysis of variance, followed by unpaired t test with the Bonferroni correction:

P < 0.001.
