The pancreas is an essential organ that serves two vital functions: it makes digestive enzymes that aid in digestion and produce hormones that control blood glucose levels. Dysfunction of this organ might be caused by failures in the genetic program controlling the organogenesis process. Interestingly, many of these pancreatic embryonic pathways are also active in adult pancreas during normal and pathological conditions (diabetes, pancreatitis or pancreas cancer). In our group we are interested in understanding how transcriptional networks control both pancreas embryonic formation and adult pancreas function, with emphasis on beta cell insulin-producing cells. Recent works from our lab have shown the important role of members of the GATA transcription family in the control of these processes.
