Type 1 diabetes, occurs when the pancreas produce less sufficient insulin to control the levels of glucose in the blood. It was tracked down that the intense loss of a protein called menin can cause the multiplication of pancreatic islet cells, for insulin production to manage glucose. The change in menin quality (MEN1) in people cause an acquired infection called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) [1].

In 1988, scientists planned the MEN1 quality to the long arm of chromosome 11. The quality was at last cloned in 1997. Menin additionally directs record factors downstream of mitogen-initiated protein kinase (MAPK) flagging and connects with cytoplasmic proteins engaged with cell cycle guideline. A significant protein associated with guideline of development and digestion is protein kinase B (PKB/Akt). This significant serine kinase, found in the cytoplasmic compartment, is inactivated by menin by means of direct connection. Both the MAPK and Akt pathways are enacted downstream of insulin receptor flagging, showing that menin could be engaged with the guideline of this flagging course.

MEN1 patients generally faster hyperplasia (over multiplication of cells) in a few endocrine organs, like parathyroid and pancreas. Typically, the menin protein has a cancer reduction property i.e. it controls cell-multiplication capacity of the cell. Loss of menin can cause multiplication of pancreatic islet cells. For instance, A creature model has been created which is considered for exact planning in cutting the MEN1 quality from the genome of take-out mice. In seven days of extracting MEN1, it was showed that the pancreatic islet cells had been multiplied in the mice. These outcomes show an intense impact of MEN1 extraction and straight-forwardly interface MEN1 to restraint of pancreatic islet cell expansion [2].

The researchers extracted MEN1, the quality encoding protein menin, from both islet cells and contiguous exocrine cells in the pancreas; however just in islet cells they have noticed cells multiplying. This is significant on the grounds that MEN1 changes to a great extent and causes endocrine hyperplasia or growths, yet not exocrine cancers [3]. The outcomes showing special impacts on islet cell expansion could basically upto some extent clarify the deficiency of menin that it just prompts endocrine growths. In type I diabetes, the deficiency of islet beta cells leads to the main motivation behind why an adequate measure of insulin can't be delivered. Ultimately, if menin work is stifled, incitement of beta-cell multiplication happens, which might work with new procedures to expand insulin-discharging beta cells and treating diabetes [4].

The association between a cancer silencer and treating diabetes has not been normal. By exploiting and examining a hereditarily very much portrayed cancer disorder, MEN1, it was set to see how the initial step of harmless growth improvement is exactly controlled. The more the disclosure, the more can be thought about menin work. The exact job of menin is controlling islet cell expansion. This most recent finding about the job of menin on islet cells, however not nearby exocrine cells, prompted the acknowledgment that controlling the menin pathway may be an incredible method to animate islet cell multiplication to battle type I diabetes.
