Role and clinical significance of lymphocyte mitochondrial dysfunction in type 2 diabetes mellitus

Saba KhanPradyumna Kumar Mishra


Lymphocyte homeostasis in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with increased susceptibility to infections. Mitochondrial oxidative stress is implicated primarily in the immune pathophysiology of diabetes; however, the molecular underpinnings of lymphocyte mitochondrial dysfunction and ensuing downstream cellular effects are hitherto unreported. Both in early diagnosed patients and patients with late complications, we observed an inverse correlation between mitochondrial DNA content in lymphocytes and hemoglobin A1 (HbA1c) levels. This relation established for the first time might serve as a general, yet direct, predictor or indicator for mitochondrial dysfunction in T2DM. Compared with controls, nuclear DNA damage response was higher (P ≤ 0.001) in diabetic subjects with increased accumulation of phospho-ataxia-telangiectasia (ATM), γ-H2AX, along with active recruitment of repair proteins (Mre11, Rad50, and Nbs1). A higher frequency (>2%) of stable chromosomal anomalies with loss of telomere integrity was observed in cases with late complications. A significant decrease (P ≤ 0.001) in enzyme activity of complex II, III, and IV of mitochondrial respiratory chain was evident in both diabetic groups in comparison with he...Continue Reading

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

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.

Ataxia telangiectasia (MDS)

Ataxia telangiectasia is a rare neurodegenerative diseases caused by defects in the ATM gene, which is involved in DNA damage recognition and repair pathways. Here is the latest research on this autosomal recessive disease.
