12 new genes linked to diabetes identified

28th June 2010

UK researchers leading an international consortium have identified 12 new genes linked with type 2 diabetes.

The research was part of the biggest study carried out so far into the condition and brings the amount of genetic regions linked with the condition to 38.  "The signals we have identified provide important clues to the biological basis of type 2 diabetes", says Professor Mark McCarthy from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at the University of Oxford.
