Gene discovery in neonatal diabetes to uncover the mechanisms regulating human pancreas development

De Franco Elisa , Wakeling Matthew , Owens Nick , Johnson Matthew , Flanagan Sarah , Hattersley Andrew T

Understanding how pancreatic beta-cells develop during human development is essential to advance current protocols aimed at developing insulin-producing beta-cells in vitro and highlight therapeutic targets for diabetes treatment. Identifying the single-gene mutations which result in individuals developing diabetes in the first 6 months of life (a condition called neonatal diabetes) has the potential to give unique insights into the genes regulating human beta-cells w...
