We use the natural secretagogue for our Hamster 
islet tumor cells, glucose, or glucose plus Ca++ 
ionophore if we really want to "juice" up the rate 
of insulin secretion. You could use whatever the 
natural hormone or secretagogue is. If the system is 
PKC activated, you can also use activators of PKC.
