Interaction Information:

Comment The study identified TCF7L2 transcripts in the human beta-cell, which had opposite effects on beta-cell survival, function and Wnt signaling activation. While TCF7L2 clone B1, which lacks exons 13, 14, 15 and 16 induced beta-cell apoptosis, impaired function and inhibited glucagon-like peptide 1 response and downstream targets of Wnt signaling, clones B3 and B7 which both contain exon 13, improved beta-cell survival and function and activated Wnt signaling.
