UNLABELLED Aims/Introduction:  The effectiveness of incretin-based therapies in Asian type 2 diabetes requires investigation of the secretion and metabolism of glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypepide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). Plasma extractions have been suggested to reduce variability in intact GLP-1 levels among individuals by(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Investigation of dietary therapy for diabetes has focused on meal size and composition; examination of the effects of meal sequence on postprandial glucose management is limited. The effects of fish or meat before rice on postprandial glucose excursion, gastric emptying and incretin secretions were investigated. METHODS The experiment was(More)
Regulators of G-protein signaling (RGS) proteins are negative regulators of heterotrimeric guanine-nucleotide-binding proteins (G-proteins) by activating intrinsic GTPase activity of G alpha and thereby terminating G-protein coupled receptor-associated signal transduction. RGS8 belongs to B/R4 subfamily of RGS proteins and is expressed in the central(More)
Type 2 diabetes in East Asians is characterized primarily by β-cell dysfunction, and with less adiposity and less insulin resistance compared with that in Caucasians. Such pathophysiological differences can determine the appropriate therapeutics for the disease. Incretins, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide and glucagon-like peptide-1, are(More)
