The article discusses a study which investigated the association of the small ubiquitin like modifier 4 (SUMO4) methionine to valine (M55V) polymorphism gene and genetic susceptibility of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in Chinese children. It describes the methods utilized in the study. Findings showed that the frequencies of SUMO4 163G allele were significantly increased in T1D patients. The generalization of the findings to other populations was also explored.
