Tissue-specific methylation profile in obese patients with type 2 diabetes before and after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

Abstract

Eating habits, lifestyles, and exposure to specific environmental factors can greatly impact the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D), influence the genome epigenetically, and affect the expression of genes, including genes related to glycemic control, at any stage of life. The epigenetic mechanism underlying obesity and T2D pathogenesis remains poorly… (More)
