Impact of transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) on pancreatic islet function and morphology in mice and men.

Renström, Erik LU (2012) In Diabetologia 55(10). p.2559-2561
Abstract
Common genetic variations in the gene encoding transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) reveal the strongest association with type 2-diabetes known to date. These lead to impaired insulin production and output, but the mechanisms of disease remain incompletely known. In this issue of Diabetologia, two publications provide new insights into TCF7L2-dependent diabetes.
