Chronic hyperglycaemia worsens insulin resistance in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Whether this effect is contributed by epigenetic dysregulation and which genes are involved remain unclear. Prep1 (also known as Pknox1) is a gene exerting major effects on the sensitivity of the glucose transport machinery to insulin. Here, we show that dysregulation of Prep1 expression by high glucose levels is associated with histone modifications at its 5' regulatory region.

Abstract

Chronic hyperglycaemia worsens insulin resistance in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Whether this effect is contributed by epigenetic dysregulation and which genes are involved remain unclear. Prep1 (also known as Pknox1) is a gene exerting major effects on the sensitivity of the glucose transport machinery to insulin. Here, we show that dysregulation of Prep1 expression by high glucose levels is associated with histone modifications at its 5' regulatory region.
