REVIEW
Lisa R Letourneau, Siri Atma W Greeley
The majority of patients diagnosed with diabetes less than 6 months of age, and many cases diagnosed between 6 and 12 months of age, have a gene mutation that causes permanent or transient hyperglycemia. Recent research advances have allowed for the discovery of new causes of congenital diabetes, including genes involved in pancreatic development (GATA4, NKX2-2, MNX1) and monogenic causes of autoimmune dysregulation (STAT3, LRBA). Ongoing follow-up of patients with KCNJ11 and ABCC8 mutations has supported the safety and efficacy of sulfonylureas, as well as the use of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors in infants with insulin-requiring forms of monogenic diabetes...

Sulfonylureas are insulin secretagogues which act in pancreatic β cells by blocking the KATP channels encoded by KCNJ11 and ABCC8 genes. In the present study, a pharmacoepigenetic approach was applied for the first time, investigating the correlation of KCNJ11 and ABCC8 gene promoter methylation with sulfonylureas-induced mild hypoglycemic events as well as the KCNJ11 E23K genotype. Sodium bisulfite-treated genomic DNA of 171 sulfonylureas treated T2DM patients previously genotyped for KCNJ11 E23K, including 88 that had experienced drug-associated hypoglycemia and 83 that had never experienced hypoglycemia, were analyzed for DNA methylation of KCNJ11 and ABCC8 gene promoters via quantitative Methylation-Specific PCR...

Electrical storm (ES) is a life threatening clinical situation. Though a few clinical pointers exist, the occurrence of ES in a patient with remote myocardial infarction (MI) is generally unpredictable. Genetic markers for this entity have not been studied. In the present study, we carried out genetic screening in patients with remote myocardial infarction presenting with ES by next generation sequencing and identified 25 rare variants in 19 genes predominantly in RYR2, SCN5A, KCNJ11, KCNE1 and KCNH2, CACNA1B, CACNA1C, CACNA1D and desmosomal genes - DSP and DSG2 that could potentially be implicated in electrical storm...

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is caused by β-cell destruction, usually leading to absolute insulin deficiency. T1D is a heterogeneous disease and is divided into two subtypes according to the presence or absence of pancreatic autoantibodies: type 1A (immune mediated) and type 1B (idiopathic). Genes such as KCNJ11 or INS, which play key roles in β-cell function, provide some insight into the pathogenesis of type 1B diabetes. In this study, we screened 110 Taiwanese children (61 males and 49 females) with T1D onset before the age of 5 years for mutations of INS and KCNJ11...

We hypothesized that the association of certain lifestyle parameters with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) risk would depend on susceptibility loci. In total, 278 Russian women with GDM and 179 controls completed questionnaires about lifestyle habits (food consumption, physical activity and smoking). GDM was diagnosed according to the criteria of the International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups. Maternal blood was sampled for genotyping single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in MTNR1B (rs10830963 and rs1387153), GCK (rs1799884), KCNJ11 (rs5219), IGF2BP2 (rs4402960), TCF7L2 (rs7903146 and rs12255372), CDKAL1 (rs7754840), IRS1 (rs1801278) and FTO (rs9939609)...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM) is a rare disorder worldwide where diabetes is diagnosed in the first 6 months of life. However, Oman has a relatively high incidence of NDM. METHODS: In this study, we investigated the genetic etiologies underlying NDM and their prevalence in Oman. We collected a cohort of 24 NDM patients, with and without genetic diagnosis, referred to our center from 2007 to 2015. All patients without a genetic diagnosis were tested for mutations in 23 NDM-associated genes using a custom-targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel and methylation analysis of the 6q24 locus...

Pancreatic β-cells are finely tuned to secrete insulin so that plasma glucose levels are maintained within a narrow physiological range (3.5-5.5 mmol/L). Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia (HH) is the inappropriate seretion of insulin in the presence of low plasma glucose levels and leads to severe and persistent hypoglycaemia in neonates and children. Mutations in 12 different key genes (ABCC8, KCNJ11, GLUD1, GCK, HADH, SLC16A1, UCP2, HNF4A, HNF1A, HK1, PGM1 and PMM2) that are involved in the regulation of insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells have been described to be responsible for the underlying molecular mechanisms leading to congenital HH...

BACKGROUND: Therapy with sulfonylurea is preferable to insulin in the majority of individuals with KCNJ11 mutations, but not all of these people achieve target levels of HbA1c in long-term follow-up. We aimed to compare sulfonylurea therapy with insulin treatment in two sulfonylurea-sensitive individuals with a KCNJ11 mutation who had poorly controlled permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus. CASE REPORT: We report on two individuals with a KCNJ11 mutation (p.R201H) who are currently aged 35 (SVK1) and 21 years (SVK2)...

KEY POINTS: Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) from murine colonic muscles express genes encoding inwardly rectifying K+ channels. Transcripts of Kcnj2 (Kir2.1), Kcnj4 (Kir2.3), Kcnj14 (Kir2.4), Kcnj5 (Kir3.4), Kcnj8 (Kir 6.1) and Kcnj11 (Kir6.2) were found in colonic ICC. A conductance with properties consistent with Kir2 channels was observed in ICC but not in smooth muscle cells (SMC). Despite expression of gene transcripts, G-protein gated K+ channel (Kir3) and KATP (Kir6) currents were not resolved in ICC...

BACKGROUND: Congenital hyperinsulinism results in refractory hypoglycemia. If a therapy with diazoxide has been unresponsive this has been treated by subtotal pancreatectomy in the past. This therapeutic option poses an increased risk of developing diabetes at a later stage. There have been a few case reports on the use of sirolimus in such situations in the recent past. CASE PRESENTATION: Our patient was started on sirolimus very early, on day 29 of life and at the age of 14 months is doing well on sirolimus therapy...

BACKGROUND: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is hallmarked by persistent hypoketotic hypoglycemia in infancy. In the majority of all patients, CHI is caused by mutations in the KATP channel genes ABCC8 and KCNJ11, but other genes in the insulin-regulatory pathway have also been described. Repeated episodes of hypoglycemia include an increased risk of seizures and intellectual disability. So far, controlled psychometric studies on cognitive, motor, speech, and social-emotional outcome of CHI patients are missing...

BACKGROUND: Chloroquine (CQ) evokes itch in human and scratching behavior in rodents through a histamine-independent pathway. Chloroquine directly excites peripheral sensory neurons which convey itch signals to the central nervous system. It has been revealed that ATP-sensitive potassium channels (KATP channels) are important in regulating neuronal excitability. Thus, we aimed to investigate the involvement of KATP channels in CQ-induced itch which may also reveal a linkage between metabolic state of cells and itch...

BACKGROUND: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is frequently caused by mutations in one of the KATP channel subunits encoded by the genes ABCC8 and KCNJ11. The effect of simultaneous mutations in both of these genes on the pancreatic β-cell function is not known and patients with CHI carrying both ABCC8 and KCNJ11 mutations have not yet been reported. We questioned if a combination of heterozygous mutations in the ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes could also lead to β-cell dysfunction presenting as CHI...

It has been well documented that changes in ion fluxes across cellular membranes is fundamental in maintaining cellular homeostasis. Dysregulation and/or malfunction of ion channels are critical events in the pathogenesis of diverse diseases, including cancers. In this study, we focused on the study of K(+) channels in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). By data mining TCGA cohort, the expression of 27 K(+) channels was investigated and KCNJ11 was identified as a key dysregulated K(+) channels in HCC. KCNJ11 was differentially expressed in HCC and predicted a poor prognosis in HCC patients...

The ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel formed by the inwardly rectifying potassium channel Kir6.2 and the sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) plays a key role in regulating insulin secretion. Genetic mutations in KCNJ11 or ABCC8 which encode Kir6.2 and SUR1 respectively are major causes of insulin secretion disorders: those causing loss of channel function lead to congenital hyperinsulinism, whereas those causing gain of channel function result in neonatal diabetes and in some cases developmental delay, epilepsy, and neonatal diabetes, referred to as the DEND syndrome...

The ATP-sensitive potassium channel is an octameric complex, and one of its subunits, namely Kir6.2, is encoded by the KCNJ11 gene. Mutations in KCNJ11 result in hyperinsulinism or diabetes mellitus, associated with abnormal insulin secretion. Here, using CRISPR/Cas9 editing, we established a homozygous mutant KCNJ11 cell line, WAe001-A-12, which was generated by a 62-bp deletion in the coding sequence of the human embryonic stem cell line H1. It was confirmed that this deletion in the KCNJ11 gene did not affect the protein expression levels of key pluripotent factors...
