Transgenic and Knockout Mice in Diabetes Research: Novel Insights into Pathophysiology, Limitations, and Perspectives

Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes are serious public health threats. Although enormous research efforts have been focused on the pathogenesis of these diseases, the underlying mechanisms remain only partly understood. Here we review mouse phenotypes resulting from inactivation of molecules responsible for the control of glucose metabolism that have led to novel insights into insulin action and the development of insulin resistance. In addition, more sophisticated strategies to manipulate genes in mice in the future are presented.
