The high-fat-fed lean Zucker rat: a spontaneous isocaloric model of fat-induced insulin resistance associated with muscle GSK-3 overactivity.
High-fat feeding (HFF) is a well-accepted model for nutritionally-induced insulin resistance. The purpose of this investigation was to assess the metabolic responses of female lean Zucker ratsExpand

Roles of insulin signalling and p38 MAPK in the activation by lithium of glucose transport in insulin-resistant rat skeletal muscle
We have demonstrated previously in insulin-sensitive skeletal muscle that lithium, an alkali metal and non-selective inhibitor of glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3), activates glucose transport byExpand
