Title: Transcription profiling by array of human pacreatic islets prepared for clinical transplantation      
dateReleased:
02-26-2011
description:
This study compared 9 human islet preparations, extracted and prepared for clinical transplantation. Human islets were isolated as, and all were of transplant quality. Unamplified RNA was extracted and hybridized to Affymetrix HGU133+2 arrays. By using gene set enrichment analysis to investigate the variability of each probeset on the array, it was clear that isolated human islets undergo varying degrees of hypoxic stress. Further to this, key glycolytic genes, all of which are under the control of hypoxia inducing factor 1a (HIF-1a) were activated, indicating a switch towards anareobic glycolysis. Glycolysis severely impairs the ability of islets to sense glucose and secrete insulin in response to elevated blood sugar. We confirmed these findings in mouse rodents, demonstrated a dependance upon HIF-1a, and showed that even after 4 weeks, hypoxic islets retained their glycolytic molecular profile.
