Relationship of the 37,000- and 40,000-M(r) tryptic fragments of islet antigens in insulin-dependent diabetes to the protein tyrosine phosphatase-like molecule IA-2 (ICA512)

Sera from patients with insulin-dependent diabetes immunoprecipitate 64,000-M(r) proteins, distinct from glutamate decarboxylase, that are cleaved to 37,000- and 40,000-M(r) fragments by trypsin. We investigated possible relationships between 37,000- or 40,000-M(r) fragments of antigen and the tyrosine phosphatase-like protein, IA-2 (ICA512). Antibodies from nondiabetic relatives bound differentially to 37,000- and 40,000-M(r) fragments indicating presence of distinct epitopes. Precursors of these fragments could be separated on immobilized lectins, suggesting different carbohydrate content. Levels of antibodies to 40,000-M(r) fragments were strongly associated with those to the intracellular domain of IA-2. Recombinant intracellular domain of IA-2 blocked binding of antibodies to 40,000-M(r) fragments expressed by insulinoma cells and partially blocked binding to 37,000-M(r) fragments. Furthermore, trypsinization of recombinant intracellular domain of IA-2 generated proteolytic fragments of identical M(r) to the 40,000-M(r) fragments of insulinoma antigen; 37,000-M(r) fragments were not generated. Thus, 40,000-M(r) fragments of islet autoantigen are derived from a protein similar or identical to the tyrosine phosphatase-like m...Continue Reading

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Adenoma, Islet Cell

Islet Cell Adenoma arises in the islet cells, which are insulin producing cells of the pancreas. These tumors can be either malignant or benign. Discover the latest research on Islet Cell Adenoma here.

Autoimmune Diabetes & Tolerance

Patients with type I diabetes lack insulin-producing beta cells due to the loss of immunological tolerance and autoimmune disease. Discover the latest research on targeting tolerance to prevent diabetes.
