  1. 1. Mechanisms by which variants in the TCF7L2 gene increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Diabetes and Endocrinology

    Author : Yuedan Zhou; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TCF7L2; rs7903146; Type 2 diabetes; β cell function; β cell survival; insulin secretion; proinsulin synthesis; proinsulin-to-insulin conversion; insulin maturation; open chromain; exon skipping; p53; TP53INP1; ISL1; MAFA; NEUROD1; PDX1; NKX6.1; PCSK1; PCSK2; SLC30A8; GWAS.;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a heterogeneous disease with a multifactorial aetiology comprising of genetic and environmental factors. The common variant most highly associated with T2DM known to date is a SNP rs7903146 in the TCF7L2 gene. However, the role TCF7L2 plays in the development of T2DM was unclear. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic Variations in Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease: A Focus on Gene-Lifestyle Interactions and Mendelian Randomization

    University dissertation from Diabetes and cardiovascular disease - genetic epidemiology

    Author : George Hindy; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 diabetes; cardiovascular disease; coronary heart disease; metabolic syndrome; genetics; gene-lifestyle interactions; diet; TCF7L2; WNT signaling; chromosome 9p21; Mendelian randomization;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are highly prevalent complex diseases that result from lifestyle and genetic factors. Gene-lifestyle interactions are also believed to contribute to the etiology of these diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanisms of defective insulin secretion in type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Islet patophysiology

    Author : Taman Mahdi; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; type 2 diabetes; Insulin secretion; TCF7L2; ADRA2A; KCNQ1; SFRP4; interleukin-1B;

    Abstract : Defective insulin secretion from the pancreatic B-cells is a central feature in type 2 diabetes (T2D). There is a strong hereditary component in type T2D, but the underlying pathophysiology remains largely unknown. READ MORE

  4. 4. The genetic background of gestational diabetes mellitus

    University dissertation from Dept of Diabetes and Celiac Disease

    Author : Anastasia Papadopoulou; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gestational diabetes mellitus; HLA; TCF7L2; PTPN22; Post partum diabetes; Type 1 Diabetes; Type 2 Diabetes; Islet Cell Autoantibodies;

    Abstract : The aims of this work is to better determine the genetic background of gestational diabetes (GDM) and to examine how specific genes affect the development of diabetes post partum. In the DiPiS (Diabetes Prediction in Skåne) study we typed for HLA-DQB1 alleled, the transcription factor 7-like 2(TCF7L2) rs7903146, rs12255372 and rs7901695 SNPs, the 1858 C>T SNP of the protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor 22 (PTPN22) gene and we tested for the presence of islet cell autoantibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GAD65), insulinoma-associated antigen 2 (IA-2) and insulin in women who had been diagnosed with GDM at least once during 2000-2004.
