We have examined the patterns of Sfrp5 (secreted frizzled-related protein 5) mRNA expression and protein secretion during adipocyte differentiation, and investigated the potential role of Sfrp5 in IR (insulin resistance) in adipocytes. 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes were induced for differentiation, and RT-PCR (reverse transcription-PCR) and ELISA assays were used(More)
Eukaryotic elongation factor-2 kinase (eEF2K), a unique calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase, is well known to regulate apoptosis, autophagy and ER stress in many types of human cancers. Therefore, eEF2K would be regarded as a promising therapeutic target; however, the eEF2K-regulated mechanism and its targeted inhibitor still remain to be discovered(More)
