Abstract

Type 1 Diabetes T1D is considered to be a T-helper- Th- 1 autoimmune disease; however, T1D pathogenesis likely involves many factors, and sufficient tools for autoreactive T cell detection for the study of this disease are currently lacking.
In this study, using gene expression microarrays, we analysed the effect of diabetes-associated autoantigens on peripheral blood mononuclear cells PBMCs with the purpose of identifying prediabetes-associated cell processes.
Twelve patients with recent onset T1D, 18 first-degree relatives of the TD1 patients DRL; 9-18 autoantibody positive, and 13 healthy controls DV were tested.
PBMCs from these individuals were stimulated with a cocktail of diabetes-associated autoantigens proinsulin, IA-2, and GAD65-derived peptides.
After 72 hours, gene expression was evaluated by high-density gene microarray.
The greatest number of functional differences was observed between relatives and controls 69 pathways, from which 15% of the pathways belonged to “immune response-related” processes.
In the T1D versus controls comparison, more pathways 24% were classified as “immune response-related.” Important pathways that were identified using data from the T1D versus controls comparison were pathways involving antigen presentation by MHCII, the activation of Th17 and Th22 responses, and cytoskeleton rearrangement-related processes.
Genes involved in Th17 and TGF-beta cascades may represent novel, promising prediabetes biomarkers.
