The article talks about the effect of genetics in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. A comprehensive analysis of the gene expression profiles of the peripheral blood mononuclear cells among offspring of one type 2 diabetic parent with normal glucose tolerance and impaired glucose tolerance in comparison to newly diagnosed diabetics and normal controls is provided.
