A novel gene involved in human diabetes Mutations of the ONECUT1 gene disrupt the development of the pancreas

An international team under German-French leadership has revealed that genetic variations in the ONECUT1 gene are involved in a spectrum of diabetes forms by impairing the function of insulin-producing -cells of the pancreas. Researchers at Ulm University, Germany, and at Cochin Institute, Paris, France, played a leading role in the study entitled “Mutations and variants of ONECUT1 in diabetes”, which was recently published in Nature Medicine.
