Study identifies human microRNAs linked to type 2 diabetes

MicroRNA (miRNA) molecules in pancreatic islets have been thought to play important roles in type 2 diabetes, but until now scientists have not confidently identified which miRNAs are associated with the disease in humans.


New insights into the mechanisms causing diabetes

Researchers led by Osaka University have now identified a mechanism by which a lack of insulin may be reported back to the pancreatic cells that produce insulin, identifying a potential new therapeutic target for diabetes.
