We examined the association between sarco/endoplasmic reticulum calcium ATPase (SERCA) expression and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels since alterations in this protein expression are associated with the genesis of insulin resistance. HbA1c levels and SERCA protein expression from platelets of Mexican patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) were analyzed showing lower values of SERCA expression against the normal values we find in healthy people. Interestingly, as diabetes condition got worse; SERCA protein expression decreased gradually until it was undetectable. The results showed an inverse correlation between HbA1c and SERCA protein expression in T2DM patients. .
