The results of the recent study, published in the journal Experimental Medicine, suggest that diabetes 2 may be transmitted in a similar way to that of mad cow disease.
Diabetes is the second most common type of disease, but the cause of the disease remains unknown, but scientists at the University of Texas have now discovered a new mechanism that may lead to the disease. Specifically, researchers have done a study of the possibility that type 2 diabetes The combination of amyloid polypeptides in the Langerhans is associated with the pancreas. The research shows that this type of diabetes is similar to some neurodegenerative diseases that are transmitted, known as "bronchial diseases," such as the disease known as mad cow disease, Which affects humans.
A previous study found that 80% of diabetics 2 had a protein pool in the pancreas, small groups of cells inside the pancreas that, like other cells, contain insulin-producing beta cells. Protein is a peptide hormone produced by beta cells along with its secretion of insulin. However, it is believed that this leads to the destruction of beta cells and stop the secretion of insulin needed by the body to control blood sugar levels. In the experiment on the models of mice, researchers injected amyloid protein pooled in mice and found that it stimulated to have protein deposits and Ah pancreas, and the mice appeared to have symptoms of diabetes 2 diabetes after a few weeks of injections where damaged beta cells have increased blood sugar levels.
