A new radioligand-binding assay (RBA) is described for the detection of insulin/proinsulin-specific antibodies using 35S-labeled proinsulin produced by a cell-free reticulocyte extract. Direct use of the crude expression product in the RBA was not feasible because the protein failed to fold properly (or had incorrectly paired disulphide bridges) and(More)
The objective was to evaluate the prevalence and association of several markers (islet cell antibodies: ICA, insulin autoantibodies: IAA, glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies: GADA and ICA512 antibodies: ICA512A) along with HLA DQB1 genotype in type 1 diabetes mellitus of recent onset, including siblings and individuals without any history of this(More)
The prevalence and high levels of anti-insulin antibodies (IA) have frequently been associated with brittle diabetes, lipodystrophy in the areas where the insulin is injected and/or poor metabolic control. When this happens the usual criterion adopted is the empirical change of insulin type and/or formulation intending to diminish the IA level and then to(More)
