Publication protocol

The Ins-1 rat insulinoma cell clone 832/13, provided by C. Wollheim, was maintained in RPMI 1640 medium as previously described (11,12). Cell metabolic activity was tested with the 0.5% tetrazolium salt solution 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) or WST-1 (Roche) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Cell death was quantified by trypan blue exclusion or lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release in the medium (Roche). Cellular senescence was quantified with the β-galactosidase assay kit (Cell Biolabs). Adenovirus-expressing p21 (Adp21) (rat) and adenovirus-containing green fluorescent protein (AdGFP) were purchased from Vector Biolabs (Philadelphia, PA). Rac1 activity was measured with G-LISA Rac1 activation assay (Cytoskeleton, Denver, CO).
