An in vitro human muscle preparation suitable for metabolic studies. Decreased insulin stimulation of glucose transport in muscle from morbidly obese and diabetic subjects.
(East Carolina University, 1988-08)
We have developed an in vitro muscle preparation suitable for metabolic studies with human muscle tissue and have investigated the effects of obesity and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) on glucose transport. ...
Contractile activity restores insulin responsiveness in skeletal muscle of obese Zucker rats.
(East Carolina University, 1993-01-15)
Both insulin and contraction stimulate glucose transport in skeletal muscle. Insulin-stimulated glucose transport is decreased in obese humans and rats. The aims of this study were (1) to determine if contraction-stimulated ...
The effect of fasting on the activation in vivo of the insulin receptor kinase.
(East Carolina University, 1990-02-01)
Fasting causes insulin resistance in liver and fat, and increases insulin sensitivity in muscle. We studied the response in vitro and in vivo to insulin of the insulin receptor tyrosine kinase in muscle and liver from 72 ...
Mechanism for Improved Insulin Sensitivity after Gastric Bypass Surgery
(East Carolina University, 2008-12)
Context: Surgical treatments of obesity have been shown to induce rapid and prolonged improvements in insulin sensitivity. Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of gastric bypass surgery and the ...
