Recessive inactivating mutations of the [K.sub.ATP] channel genes (ABCC8 and KCNJ11) are the most common cause of severe, diazoxide unresponsive, diffuse CHI which usually requires pancreatectomy (1,10).
Genetic analyses of RET, VHL, ABCC8, KCNJ11, HNF4A genes were examined regarding the history of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia and no mutation was detected.
The channel contains a regulatory subunit, composed of the ABCC8 or ABCC9 (ATP-binding cassette, subfamily C members 8 and 9) gene products referred to as sulfonylurea receptor 1 and 2 (SUR1 and SUR2) proteins [2], respectively.
We did not observe any difference in either mRNA levels of Esr2, [K.sub.ATP] channels subunits Kcnj11 and Abcc8, and Snap25, which mediate the calcium signaling necessary for insulin secretion (Tables 1, 4, and 5), or in cytosolic [Ca.sup.2+] levels in isolated islets of F1 and F2 LowerB and UpperB adult males relative to Controls (see Figure S5).
Nimmagadda et al., "Silencing of Abcc8 or inhibition of newly upregulated Sur1-Trpm4 reduce inflammation and disease progression in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis," Journal of Neuroinflammation, vol.
Mutations are most frequently detected in the ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes, which code for the two KATP-channel subunits SUR1 and Kir6.2, respectively [2, 3].
For instance, the Cystic Fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR/ABCC7) is a phospho-regulated chloride channel, while the sulfonylurea receptors 1 and 2 (SUR1/ ABCC8 and SUR2/ABCC9, resp.) are regulators of inwardly rectifying potassium channels [15,16].
KCNJ11 E23K and ABCC8 S1370A variants in Kir6.2 and SUR1 components of the sulfonylurea receptor affect sulfonylurea therapeutic efficacy and adverse effects.
Large-scale association studies of variants in genes encoding the pancreatic beta-cell KATP channel subunits Kir6.2 (KCNJ11) and SUR1 (ABCC8) confirm that the KCNJ11 E23K variant is associated with type 2 diabetes.
Owen et al., "Large-scale association studies of variants in genes encoding the pancreatic [beta]-cell KATP channel subunits Kir6.2 (KCNJ11) and SUR1 (ABCC8) confirm that the KCNJ11 E23K variant is associated with type 2 diabetes," Diabetes, vol.
ABCC8 (ATP binding cassette, subfamily C, member 8) [34]: This gene encodes the high-affinity sulfonylurea receptor (SUR1) subunit that is coupled to the Kir6.2 subunit (encoded by UKCNJ11U, also known as the potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 11).
