D-glucose reduces the outflow of manganese from pancreatic beta-cells in analogy to what has previously been reported for 45Ca. The decrease can be accounted for by an enhanced intracellular sequestration. The effect of D-glucose on manganese fluxes seems to be restricted to inhibition of the efflux; no stimulation of the influx being noted. The glucose-dependence of manganese uptake is hyperbolic with half maximal stimulation between 5 and 6 mM D-glucose.
