Multivariate analysis of the percentage increase in insulin secretion
Cell type n aAdjusted mean Of% insulin increase (CI95%) * bAdjusted mean diff. Of% insulin increase(CI95%) F-stat(dF) p-value
K-cells 40 228 (165,292) −87 (−178,2) 3.8 (1,77) 0.056
L-cells 40 316 (253,380)

The final model included cell type and stimulant type as independent factors (p < 0.05; R2 = 0.18).

*Adjusted mean (two-way ANOVA controlling for type of stimulant).

†With Bonferroni adjustment of the 95% CI.
