E-CBIL-9 - Transcription profiling of rat pancreatic beta-cells in response to cytokine exposure and NF-kappa B activation blocking
Released on 16 June 2006, last updated on 12 October 2011
Type 1 diabetes mellitus results from an autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta-cells. Based on findings suggesting NF-kappa B plays a role in beta cell apoptosis, we blocked NF-kappa B activation in cytokine-exposed FACS sorted beta cells by a recombinant adenovirus (AdI kappa B((SA)2)) containing an inhibitor of NF kappa B alpha (I kappa Bac) super-repressor (S32A/S36A). The expression profile was then analyzed with the Affymetrix RG U34a microarray.
