Islet Cells

(En español: Células del islote pancreático)

Say: eye-let sels

The pancreas contains clusters of cells that produce hormones. These clusters are known as islets. There are several different types of cells in an islet. For example, alpha cells make the hormone glucagon. Beta cells make the hormone insulin.
