Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus share a pathophysiology that involves the pancreatic beta cells, the liver, and the major insulin-sensitive peripheral target tissues, namely skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. We begin our review with an overview of insulin resistance in these major target tissues. INSULIN RESISTANCE Insulin resistance is defined as a condition of low insulin sensitivity in which the ability of insulin to lower circulating glucose is impaired.

GALNT3 encodes a glycosyltransferase that initiates mucin-type O-glycosylation. NEUROD is a transcription factor for the insulin gene. 3-q31, designated IDDM11, covers a region that includes two candidate genes; the ENSA gene (involved in regulation of the beta cell ATP channels) and the SEL1L gene (which regulates development of pancreatic endocrine cells). The IDDM13 locus maps to 2q34 and is linked to the D2S164 marker in white families from Australia and the United Kingdom. Possible candidate genes in this locus include IA-2, IGFBP2 (insulin-like growth factor binding protein-2), IGFBP5 (insulin-like growth factor binding protein-5), and NRAMP1 (natural resistance–associated macrophage protein).
