IL-6 is present in beta and alpha cells in human pancreatic islets: Expression is reduced in subjects with type 1 diabetes.
IL-6 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine upregulated in some autoimmune diseases. The role of IL-6 in the development of type 1 diabetes (T1D) is unclear. Clinical studies are investigating whetherExpand

HLA class I hyper-expression unmasks beta cells but not alpha cells to the immune system in pre-diabetes.
Human leukocyte antigens of class-I (HLA-I) molecules are hyper-expressed in insulin-containing islets (ICI) of type 1 diabetic (T1D) donors. This study investigated the HLA-I expression inExpand

Overexpression of HLA class I predominantly on alpha cell in at risk individuals for type 1 diabetes
Human leukocyte antigens of class-I (HLA-I) molecules are hyper-expressed in insulin-containing islets (ICI) of type 1 diabetic (T1D) donors. This study investigated the HLA-I expression inExpand
