Researchers discover process that may explain how Type 2 diabetes develops
A new study helps to explain the mechanism by which pancreatic cells secrete high levels of insulin during the early stages of diabetes.A central question in diabetes research is why cells of the pancreas, known as beta cells, initially over-secrete insulin. The prevailing theory was that the body may be in the process of becoming “deaf” to insulin, so beta cells secrete more to compensate. But isolated beta cells still over-secrete insulin, which exposes a gap in that theory.In the new study, researchers set out to understand what other mechanism beyond insulin resistance (that is, the body becoming “dea...

Hypusine biosynthesis in {beta} cells links polyamine metabolism to facultative cellular proliferation to maintain glucose homeostasis
Deoxyhypusine synthase (DHPS) uses the polyamine spermidine to catalyze the hypusine modification of the mRNA translation factor eIF5A and promotes oncogenesis through poorly defined mechanisms. Because germline deletion of Dhps is embryonically lethal, its role in normal postnatal cellular function in vivo remains unknown. We generated a mouse model that enabled the inducible, postnatal deletion of Dhps specifically in postnatal islet β cells, which function to maintain glucose homeostasis. Removal of Dhps did not have an effect under normal physiologic conditions. However, upon development of insulin resistance, whi...
