    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of environmental and inherited factors influencing the progression of insulin resistance and impaired insulin secretion leading to chronically elevated blood glucose levels. The aim of this thesis was to functionally and genetically characterise the species-conserved diabetes locus Niddm1i of the GK rat encoding hyperglycaemia and defect insulin secretion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Glucotoxicity in Insulin-Producing β-Cells

    Author : Hanna K Nyblom; Peter Bergsten; Michael Welsh; Miriam Cnop; Uppsala universitet; []
