Genetics and Diabetes

Metabolic syndrome and related metabolic traits heritability is relatively high. Genetically altered knockout mice models and human monogenic obese/insulin unaffected syndrome deliver significant molecular insights into the pathogenesis of the metabolic syndrome. Transfer (engraftment) of human cells, tissues or organs from a donor to a recipient with the aim of restoring function in the body is called as transplantation. It can be of various types such as pancreas transplantation, xenotransplantation and islet transplantation.
