Endothelial cell (EC) insulin resistance and dysfunction, caused by diabetes, accelerates atherosclerosis. It is unknown whether specifically enhancing EC-targeted insulin action can decrease atherosclerosis in diabetes. Accordingly, overexpressing insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS1) in the endothelia of Apoe-/- mice (Irs1/Apoe-/-) increased insulin(More)
In patients with atherosclerotic complications of diabetes, impaired neovascularization of ischemic tissue in the myocardium and lower limb limits the ability of these tissues to compensate for poor perfusion. We identified 10 novel insulin-regulated genes, among them Adm, Cited2, and Ctgf, which were downregulated in endothelial cells by insulin through(More)
The risk of several cancers, including colorectal cancer, is increased in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes, conditions characterised by hyperinsulinaemia and insulin resistance. Because hyperinsulinaemia itself is an independent risk factor for cancer development, we examined tissue-specific insulin action in intestinal tumour formation. In vitro,(More)
The effect of single doses of vincristine (VCR) or bleomycin (BLM) on mice spermatogonia was investigated, and the influence of either of these drugs on the radiation response of murine spermatogonial stem cells was examined. When assessed by flow cytometry, VCR (1.0 mg/kg) or BLM (100 mg/kg) reduced the survival in the differentiated spermatogonia to 4%(More)
Objective The extracellular matrix protein fibulin-1 is upregulated in the arterial wall in type 2 diabetes and circulates in increased concentrations in diabetes. Metformin is an anti-diabetic drug with beneficial CVD effects in diabetes. We hypothesized that metformin would influence the increased level of plasma fibulin-1 in diabetes. Research Design and(More)
OBJECTIVE The extracellular matrix protein fibulin-1 is upregulated in the arterial wall in type 2 diabetes (T2D) and circulates in increased concentrations in diabetes. Metformin is an antidiabetic drug with beneficial cardiovascular disease effects in diabetes. We hypothesized that metformin would influence the increased level of plasma fibulin-1 in(More)
