The four major cell types within the Islet of Langerhans are shown in the central panel, with the most recently discovered ghrelin-producing Epsilon-cell. The islet on the left illustrates an idealized distribution of alpha, beta, gamma and PP cells. The islet on the right represents an islet that includes Epsilon-cells (purple). Note that the Epsilon-cells are located on the periphery of the islet.
