      By electricdiet / December 28, 2019

      Abstract Disruption of the adaptor protein SH2B1 (SH2-B, PSM) is associated with severe obesity, insulin resistance, and neurobehavioral abnormalities in mice and humans. Here, we identify 15 SH2B1 variants in severely obese children.

A set of genes that were upregulated at early but downregulated in late DN were shown to be largely renoprotective, which […]
