Mutation of the glucagon receptor gene and diabetes mellitus in the UK: association or founder effect?
Recent evidence suggests that a mutation of the glucagon receptor (GCG-R) gene is involved in the development of type 2 diabetes in French patients. We have examined patients from three geographically distinct regions in the UK and found the GGT40 (Gly) to AGT40 (Ser) mutation to be present in 15/691 (2.2%) of patients with type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes and 1/425 (0.2%) of geographically matched controls and have therefore replicated association of the GCG-R mutation with classical ...Expand abstract
