  1. 1. Mitochondrial and chromosomal genomics in type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Avinash Abhyankar; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adaptive evolution; nuclear-mitochondrial interaction; linkage analysis; QTL; phylogenetic analysis; congenic; type 2 diabetes; GK rat;

    Abstract : Understanding the mechanisms of complex polygenic diseases like type 2 diabetes (T2D) is as complex as their nature. Cellular processes involved in glucose homeostasis need high and reliable energy supply. Mitochondria are the major energy producers in mammalian cells. READ MORE

    Abstract : SummaryThe human pathogen Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS) causes both superficial infections, such as strep throat, and invasive infections, such as necrotizing fasciitis, and is responsible for about half a million deaths each year. The number of GAS infections have increased since the 1980’s, due to the emergence of a M1T1 strain that has become widely disseminated. READ MORE
