Diabetes mellitus, non-insulin-dependent (NIDDM) [MIM:125853]: A multifactorial disorder of glucose homeostasis caused by a lack of sensitivity to the body's own insulin. Affected individuals usually have an obese body habitus and manifestations of a metabolic syndrome characterized by diabetes, insulin resistance, hypertension and hypertriglyceridemia. The disease results in long-term complications that affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels. Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

Maturity-onset diabetes of the young 4 (MODY4) [MIM:606392]: A form of diabetes that is characterized by an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, onset in childhood or early adulthood (usually before 25 years of age), a primary defect in insulin secretion and frequent insulin-independence at the beginning of the disease. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.  
  • UniProtKB
Pancreatic agenesis 1 (PAGEN1) [MIM:260370]: A disease characterized by isolated hypoplasia or agenesis of the pancreas, pancreatic beta-cell failure resulting in neonatal insulin- dependent diabetes mellitus, and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
