  1. 1. Aspects of ZnT8 autoimmunity in childhood type 1 diabetes

    University dissertation from Paediatric Endocrinology Research Group

    Author : Cecilia K Andersson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; Zinc transporter; ZnT8 autoantibodies; HLA; islet cell autoantibodies; GAD65 autoantibodies; IA-2 autoantibodies; insulin autoantibodies; glucose tolerance;

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in childhood and adolescence with an increasing incidence worldwide. It is an autoimmune disease with many autoimmune markers, where the zinc transporter 8 autoantibody (ZnT8A) is the most recent autoantibody discovered. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunogenetics of Childhood Type 1 Diabetes in Immigrant Patients in Sweden. Migration Studies on Type 1 Diabetes

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Ahmed Delli; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diabetes; Type 1 Diabetes; Childhood; Human Leukocyte Antigen HLA ; Islet autoantibodies; Zinc Transporter 8 ZnT8 ; Islet antigen IA2- ; Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase 65 GAD65; Insulin; Migration.;

    Abstract : This thesis examined whether the offspring of immigrants (non-Swedes) to Sweden are at increased risk of Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) when they are born or live in Sweden. It also evaluated if their T1D and T2D-related genes differed from Swedish patients and whether this genetic heritage determined the types and existence of islet autoantibodies at time of diagnosis and affected the classification of diabetes.

  3. 3. The MEN 1 Pancreas Tumor Development and Haploinsufficiency

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Margareta Halin Lejonklou; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEN 1; PNET; tumor development; haploinsufficiency; survivin; Endocrinology and Diabetology; Endokrinologi och Diabetologi;

    Abstract : Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type I Syndrome (MEN 1) is a monogenic autosomal dominantly inherited cancer syndrome caused by a heterozygous loss of the MEN1 gene, predisposing for endocrine cell proliferation and tumor formation. MEN 1 carriers classically develop tumors in endocrine organs; the parathyroids, the endocrine pancreas, and the pituitary. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exocytosis in Type 2 Diabetes- Functional and genetic studies of hormone secretion

    University dissertation from Unit of Islet Cell Exocytosis

    Author : Sofia A Andersson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 Diabetes; Insulin; Glucagon; Alpha-cells; Beta-cells; Exocytosis; Capacitance; SNARE; SNAP25; Syntaxin1A; Synaptotagmin; Munc-18 Stxbp1 ; SNP; Expression; miRNA;

    Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is characterized by dysregulated beta-and alpha-cell hormone secretion leading to elevated blood glucose levels. Several proteins are crucial in maintaining exocytosis of the hormone-containing granules such as Syntaxin1A (Stx1A), SNAP25, Munc-18 (Stxbp1) and the family of Synaptotagmins (Syts). READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic and epigenetic influence on oxidative phosphorylation, islet function and type 2 diabetes in humans

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Anders H Olsson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 Diabetes; Genetics; Epigenetics; Human Pancreatic Islets; Oxidative Phosphorylation; Insulin Secretion;

    Abstract : The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) is increasing worldwide. T2D is a heterogeneous disease caused by a complex interplay between multiple genetic, epigenetic and non-genetic factors. The disease is characterised by impaired insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells and insulin resistance in peripheral tissues. READ MORE
