miR-18a increases insulin sensitivity by inhibiting PTEN

Downregulation of miR-18a in serum from T2DM patients. (A) Basal miR-18a levels in healthy subjects (n=44) and T2DM patients (n=49) were detected using qRT-PCR. (B) Correlation between miR-18a levels and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) values. P values

Figure 1. Downregulation of miR-18a in serum from T2DM patients. (A) Basal miR-18a levels in healthy subjects (n=44) and T2DM patients (n=49) were detected using qRT-PCR. (B) Correlation between miR-18a levels and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) values. P values <0.05 were considered statistically significant.
