A novel role for myosin II in insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in 3T3-L1 adipocytes 2005 351 Insulin-stimulated glucose uptake requires the activation of several signaling pathways to mediate the translocation and fusion of GLUT4 vesicles from an intracellular pool to the plasma membrane. The studies presented here show that inhibition of my...
Regulation of Myosin II Isoform Localization and Activation during Insulin Stimulated Glucose Uptake in 3T3-L1 Adipocytes. 2006 513 Insulin stimulated glucose uptake is a critical component of glucose homeostasis. The studies presented here show that myosin IIA is actively recruited to the plasma membrane upon insulin stimulation. I also show that inhibiting the interaction of my...
