Gene linked to type 1 diabetes

This gene plays a dramatic role in diabetes among rats, and is also present in nearly identical form in humans. Further study of the gene may help explain the little-understood processes of the thymus. The thymus is a vital part of the body's immune system, which sometimes attacks insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, leading to type 1 diabetes.
