Telomere Dysfunction-Related Serological Markers in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes: Correlation with Methylene Tetrahydofolate Reductase (C677T) Gene Polymorphism and Diabetic Complications
OBJECTIVE: Recent studies have identified a set of serological markers for telomere dysfunction and DNA damage. In the present study, the levels of 2 serological markers of telomere dysfunction namely chitinase and N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAG) were studied in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. The possibility that genomic damage, accumulation of reactive oxygen species and shorter telomeres may be linked to ... Read more
