Lethargic pancreas gene might unleash diabetes

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: If the manager at a fast-food joint always knocks off early, the other employees probably won't work very hard. Similarly, a "supervisor" gene that slacks off in pancreas cells might help trigger diabetes, a new study shows. Losing the gene thwarts the activity of other genes that control how the cells respond to glucose and release insulin. The work might provide a new target for antidiabetes drugs.
