Title: Development of type 1 diabetes mellitus T1D in NOD mice follows transcriptional activity of thymocytes and peripheral T lymphocytes      
dateReleased:
03-03-2011
description:
Non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice feature pancreatic infiltration of autoreactive T lymphocytes as early as 1 month of age, which destruct insulin-producing beta-cells to finally emerge autoimmune diabetes mellitus (T1D) within 8 months. In view, we hypothesized that during the development of T1D, transcriptional modulation of immune reactivity genes may occur as thymocytes mature toward peripheral T lymphocytes. Transcriptome of thymocytes and peripheral CD3+ T lymphocytes from pre-diabetic or diabetic mice analyzed through microarray hybridizations allowed observation of 3,586 differentially expressed genes. Hierarchical clustering grouped mice according to age/T1D onset and genes to their ontology. Transcriptional activity of thymocytes toward peripheral T lymphocytes unraveled sequential participation of genes involved with CD4+/CD8+ T cell differentiation (Themis), tolerance induction (Foxp3), apoptosis (Fasl) to soon after T cell activation (IL4), while the emergence of T1D coincided with the expression of cytotoxicity (Crtam) and inflammatory response genes (Tlr) by peripheral T lymphocytes.
