E-GEOD-50397 - Global transcriptomic analysis of human pancreatic islets reveals novel genes influencing glucose metabolism [expression array]

Homo sapiens
Samples (89)
Array (1)
Protocols (6)
Here we harnessed the potential of expression arrays in 89 human pancreatic islet donors (different levels of blood glucose (HbA1c)) to identify genes regulated in this relevant tissue for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Islets from cadaver donors were provided by the Nordic Islet Transplantation Programme (, Uppsala University. The microarrays were performed using GeneChip® Human Gene 1.0 ST whole transcript according to Affymetrix standard protocol.
