1 Abstract We investigate the role of the ionic currents expressed in the human pancreatic β-cell in the generation of spiking electrical activity. The depolarization and repolarization segments of the action potential produced by a recent mathematical model were studied using the lead potential analysis method to estimate the contribution of the ionic channels to the generation and shape of the action potentials. It is well established that after being transported into the cell, glucose is metabolized, producing energy in form of ATP. The increased ATP concentration blocks ATP-sensitive K + channels (K ATP ) which results in membrane depolarization and voltage-dependent activation of Ca 2+ channels.
