An in vitro human muscle preparation suitable for metabolic studies. Decreased insulin stimulation of glucose transport in muscle from morbidly obese and diabetic subjects. 2011 54003 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. Transport of 3-0- methylgl...
Insulin-like growth factor I binding in hepatocytes from human liver human hepatoma and normal regenerating and fetal rat liver. 2011 54003 Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in human hepatoma cells (HEP-G2) has in addition to its effect on cell growth shortterm metabolic effects acting through its own receptor. We have demonstrated that normal human hepatocytes compared with HEP-G2 ce...
Long-term effect of insulin on glucose transport and insulin binding in cultured adipocytes from normal and obese humans with and without non-insulin-dependent diabetes. 2011 54003 We have tested the hypothesis that in vitro exposure of insulin- resistant adipocytes with insulin results in improved insulin action. A primary culture system of adipocytes from obese subjects with or without non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus ...
Restoration of insulin responsiveness in skeletal muscle of morbidly obese patients after weight loss. Effect on muscle glucose transport and glucose transporter GLUT4. 2011 54003 A major defect contributing to impaired insulin action in human obesity is reduced glucose transport activity in skeletal muscle. This study was designed to determine whether the improvement in whole body glucose disposal associated with weight reduc...
