|Presentation Title||Exploring the Role of ZnT8 in Islet Beta Cell Function and Type 2 Diabetes|
|Status||This meeting has already occurred|
GWAS data have identified a single nucleotide polymorphism in SLC30A8, the gene encoding zinc transporter 8 (ZnT8), which is associated with an altered risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Recently, it was also reported that haploinsufficiency of ZnT8 in humans is protective against development of T2D. This presentation will discuss data from 2 mouse models in order to better understand the role that ZnT8 plays in beta cell function and its association with T2D development.
