Cover: In ß cells, the single chain precursor preproinsulin is cleaved of the signal peptide to produce proinsulin across the ER membrane. Wild-type proinsulin is then folded and delivered to the Golgi apparatus to form mature insulin, which is stored in secretory granules to be secreted (left). In contrast, the p.Ala2Thr mutation located at the signal peptide in INS gene results in an improperly cleaved proinslin, which is unfolded and retained in the ER to trigger ER stress, leading to impaired ß cell secretion function and resultant hyperglycemia (right). This causative mutation p.Ala2Thr in INS is responsible for MODY10 in Chinese population. See pages 376–383 by Yan et al. for details.
