Genetic effect of type 2 Diabetes to the progression of Neurological Diseases

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Md Habibur RahmanMohammad Ali Moni


Neurological Diseases (NDs) are progressive disorder often advances with age and comorbidities of Type 2 diabetes (T2D). Epidemiological, clinical and neuropathological evidence advocate that patients with T2D are at an increased risk of getting NDs. However, it is very little known how T2D affects the risk and severity of NDs. To tackle these problems, we employed a transcriptional analysis of affected tissues using agnostic approaches to identify overlapping cellular functions. In this study, we examined gene expression microarray human datasets along with control and disease- affected individuals. Differentially expressed genes (DEG) were identified for both T2D and NDs that includes Alzheimer Disease (AD), Parkinson Disease (PD), Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Epilepsy Disease (ED), Huntington Disease (HD), Cerebral Palsy (CP) and Multiple Sclerosis Disease (MSD). We have developed genetic association and diseasome network of T2D and NDs based on the neighborhood-based benchmarking and multilayer network topology approaches. Overlapping DEG sets go through protein-protein interaction for hub protein identification and gene enrichment using pathway analysis and gene ontology methods that enhance our understanding of th...Continue Reading

BioRxiv & MedRxiv Preprints

BioRxiv and MedRxiv are the preprint servers for biology and health sciences respectively, operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Here are the latest preprint articles (which are not peer-reviewed) from BioRxiv and MedRxiv.

Alzheimer's Disease: Transcription

Impaired transcription is associated with the pathogenesis and progression of conditions such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to transcription and AD.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.

Epidemiology of Aging

This feed focuses on epidemiology of aging and aging-related conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and age-associated cognitive impairment. Here is the latest research.

Amyloid Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive nervous system disease associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS here.

Alzheimer's Disease: Microglia (Preprints)

Microglial proliferation and activation, as well as its concentration around amyloid plaques, is a prominent feature of Alzheimer’s disease. Here is the latest research on microglia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Biomarkers for Type 2 Diabetes

Biomarkers can help understand chronic diseases and assist in risk prediction for prevention and early detection of diseases. Here is the latest research on biomarkers in type 2 diabetes, a disease in which the body is unable to produce or properly use insulin.
