Regulation of insulin-binding and basal (insulin-independent) as well as insulin-stimulated glycogen synthesis from [14C]glucose, net glycogen deposition and glycogen synthase activation by insulin and dexamethasone were studied in primary cultures of adult rat hepatocytes maintained under chemically defined conditions. Insulin receptor number was increased(More)
The dependence of the regulation of insulin receptors by insulin on the time hepatocytes were maintained in culture and the relationship between the return of down-regulated receptors and glycogen synthesis from labelled glucose were investigated in primary cultures of adult rat hepatocytes. Insulin receptor numbers, but not ligand affinity, decreased(More)
Exosomes and other extracellular vesicles (commonly referred to as EVs) have generated a lot of attention for their potential applications in both diagnostics and therapeutics. The contents of these vesicles are the subject of intense research, and the relatively recent discovery of RNA inside EVs has raised interest in the biological function of these RNAs(More)
Extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) have been identified in all tested biofluids and have been associated with a variety of extracellular vesicles, ribonucleoprotein complexes and lipoprotein complexes. Much of the interest in exRNAs lies in the fact that they may serve as signalling molecules between cells, their potential to serve as biomarkers for prediction and(More)
Cultured rat hepatocytes were used to characterize the relationship between cellular glycogen content and the basal rate, as well as response to insulin of glycogen synthesis. Depending on the concentration of medium glucose, glycogen-depleted monolayers accumulated glycogen between 24 and 48 h of culture up to the fed in vivo level. Insulin at 100 nM(More)
During the last decade, novel immunotherapeutic strategies, in particular antibodies directed against immune checkpoint inhibitors, have revolutionized the treatment of different malignancies leading to an improved survival of patients. Identification of immune-related biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring of immune responses and selection of(More)
