Overexpression of alpha2A-adrenergic receptors contributes to type 2 diabetes

December 2010

Abstract: Several common genetic variations have been associated with type 2 diabetes, but the exact disease mechanisms are still poorly elucidated.

Polymorphisms in the gene encoding the voltage-dependent Ca2+ channel CaV2.3 (CACNA1E) are associated with type 2 diabetes and impaired insulin secretion

December 2007

Abstract: Aims/hypothesis Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion is dependent on the electrical activity of beta cells; hence, genes encoding beta cell ion channels are potential candidate genes for...
