Proteins spontaneously released by rat insulinoma (RIN) cells are anchored on cell membrane by a glycosyl-phosphatidyl-inositol link and inhibit increased RIN cell adhesion of lymphocytes from type 1 diabetic patients and non-obese diabetic mice in vitro.

Our group previously reported an assay for the study of lymphocyte adhesion to insulin-producing cells in which xenogeneic rat insulinoma (RIN) cells were used as targets. The present study found an increased number of RIN-cytoadherent lymphocytes in 63 patients with Type 1 diabetes compared with 150 control subjects and in 211 NOD mice compared with 104… CONTINUE READING
