Non-HLA region genes in insulin dependent diabetes mellitus

Baillière's Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
L L Field


The focus of this chapter is on the contribution of genes outside the HLA region to insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) susceptibility. We review laboratory evidence for such genes from published studies and also present unpublished data from our recent research. The existence of genes predisposing to IDDM in the region of the insulin (INS) gene now appears established. Association analysis has demonstrated an increased frequency of class 1 alleles of the 5' INS polymorphism in diabetics compared with controls, and a new method of analysis (AFBAC) has shown that this association is not an artefact of population stratification. Interestingly, the effect of INS region susceptibility on IDDM cannot be detected by linkage analysis, suggesting that if a genetic marker locus is close to a disease susceptibility locus, association analysis may be a more sensitive method than linkage analysis for detecting the susceptibility locus. There is no convincing evidence that genes in the T cell receptor beta chain (TCRB) or alpha chain (TCRA) regions influence predisposition to IDDM, either directly, or indirectly through interaction with HLA region genes. However, we present new evidence for interaction between TCRB and immunoglobulin...Continue Reading
