Insulin resistance contributes to the development of Type 2 diabetes, and is associated with lipid oversupply. Deletion of isoforms of the lipid-activated protein kinase C (PKC) family, PKCδ or PKCε, improves insulin action in fat-fed mice, but differentially affects hepatic lipid metabolism. To investigate the mechanisms involved, we employed an in vivo(More)
Isoforms of flavin-containing monooxygenase (FMO) are involved in xenobiotic metabolism but have also been implicated in the regulation of glucose and lipid homeostasis and in the development of atherosclerosis. However, we have recently shown that improved insulin action is associated with increased FMO expression in livers of protein kinase C-deficient(More)
Proteins of the Homeodomain-Interacting Protein Kinase (HIPK) family regulate an array of processes in mammalian systems, such as the DNA damage response, cellular proliferation and apoptosis. The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has a single HIPK homologue called HPK-1. Previous studies have implicated HPK-1 in longevity control and suggested that this(More)
