26341315 Data suggest that islet-specific glucose 6 phosphatase catalytic subunit-related protein (IGRP)-specific CD4(+) helper T (Th) cells play a unique pathogenic role in adult-onset T1D (AT1D).
25625282 we identified coding variants at several GWAS loci which point to the genes underlying these association signals. Importantly, we found that multiple coding variants in G6PC2 result in a loss of protein function and lower fasting glucose levels.
25078492 rs560887 associated with increased fasting glucose levels
24030068 three novel G6PC2 variants were discovered that occur in islets only, leading to protein truncations, frame shifts and neo-sequences prone to immunogenicity.
23840762 GCKR rs780094 variant confers high cross-ethnicity risk for the development of T2DM, while significant associations between GCK, MTNR1B and G6PC2 variants and T2DM risk are limited to Caucasians.
23508304 polymorphisms in the G6PC2 gene contribute to the association with higher fasting plasma glucose levels
22983906 one of the newly identified spontaneously reactive epitopes (P8 [IGRP(55-72)]) is highly conserved between mice and man, suggesting that it might also be a target of HLA-DQ8-restricted T cells in diabetic human subjects
22486180 Variation at the rs560887 locus of G6PC2 is associated with worse glycated haemoglobin levels in individuals with GCK mutations; GG homozygotes are more likely to meet diagnostic criteria for diabetes based on HbA(1c) level.
22438186 A single nucleotide polymorphism in the beta cell gene G6PC2 may correlate with preserved insulin secretion in type 1 diabetes.
21515849 Children and adolescents carrying glucose-raising alleles of G6PC2, MTNR1B, GCK, and GLIS3 also showed reduced beta-cell function, as indicated by homeostasis model assessment of beta-cell function.
