The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether Panax ginseng extract intake would influence exercise-induced muscle damage and inflammation responses. Eighteen male college students were randomly assigned to either an RG intake group (RG, n = 9) or a placebo group (P, n = 9). All subjects performed a high-intensity uphill treadmill running task(More)
The effects of high (HI)- and low (LI)-intensity exercise training were examined on insulin-stimulated 3-O-methyl-D-glucose (3-MG) transport and concentration of insulin-regulatable glucose transporter protein (GLUT-4) in the red (fast-twitch oxidative) and white (fast-twitch glycolytic) quadriceps of the obese Zucker rat. Sedentary obese (SED) and lean(More)
The interrelationships among glucose uptake, GLUT-4 protein, and citrate synthase activity in insulin-resistant skeletal muscle were investigated. Female obese (fa/fa) Zucker rats were randomly assigned to treadmill training, ingestion of the selective beta 2-adrenergic agonist clenbuterol, or sedentary control groups. After 7-8 wk of treatment, hindlimbs(More)
The rates of muscle glucose uptake of trained (TR) and untrained (UT) obese Zucker rats were assessed by hindlimb perfusion under basal conditions (no insulin) in the presence of a maximally stimulating concentration of insulin (10 mU/ml) and after muscle contraction elicited by electrical stimulation of the sciatic nerve. Perfusate contained 28 mM glucose(More)
Exercise training increases the concentration of GLUT-4 protein in skeletal muscle that is associated with an increase in maximal insulin-stimulated glucose transport. The purpose of this study was to determine whether exercise training results in a long-lasting increase in insulin-stimulated glucose transport in rat skeletal muscle. Glucose uptake and(More)
For seeking the good natural material to develop new agent to treat diabetes, the total triterpene acid (TTA) fraction extracted from Folium Eriobotryae [leaves of Eriobotrya japonica (Thunb.) Lindl.] was evaluated for its hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic potential through normal, alloxan and streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice administered with graded oral(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the effects of endurance exercise and a high-fat diet on insulin resistance and ceramide contents of skeletal muscle in Sprague-Dawley rats. METHODS We randomly divided 32 rats into four groups: control (CON, n = 8), high fat diet (HF, n = 8), exercise (Ex, 24 m/min for 2 hours, 5 days/wk, n = 8), HF/Ex (n = 8). After 4-week(More)
It has been recognized that ginseng has anti-diabetic effects in skeletal muscle, but the mechanism has not been intensively investigated. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of Korean red ginseng (Panax ginseng) supplementation on muscle glucose uptake in high-fat fed rats. Sixteen rats were randomly divided into two groups: a control(More)
PURPOSE Effect of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) administration on lipid storage, and its subsequent effect on insulin sensitivity have not yet been adequately examined. Thus, we investigated the effects of rhGH treatment on muscle triglyceride (TG) and ceramide content, and insulin sensitivity after 4 weeks of rhGH administration in rats. (More)
