Caption: Mice cells with permanently and selectively labeled pancreatic acinar cells (left panel, blue). At the same time, insulin-producing cells could be followed by a stain specific for insulin (middle panel, red) The two stains do not overlap with each other (right panel), demonstrating that acinar cells do not generate insulin-producing cells after pancreatic injury.
