The malonyl-CoA/long-chain acyl-CoA (LC-CoA) model of glucose-induced insulin secretion (GIIS) predicts that malonyl-CoA derived from glucose metabolism inhibits fatty acid oxidation, thereby increasing the availability of LC-CoA for lipid signaling to cellular processes involved in exocytosis. For directly testing the model, INSr3 cell clones(More)
To directly assess the role of beta cell lipolysis in insulin secretion and whole-body energy homeostasis, inducible beta cell-specific adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL)-deficient (B-Atgl-KO) mice were studied under normal diet (ND) and high-fat diet (HFD) conditions. Atgl flox/flox mice were cross-bred with Mip-Cre-ERT mice to generate Mip-Cre-ERT/+;Atgl(More)
Autoradiographic studies were conducted to identify and characterize target cells for 1,25(OH)2 vitamin D3 in the pyloric region of rats and mice. After injection of 3H 1,25(OH)2 vitamin D3, nuclear concentration of radioactivity was observed in nuclei of duodenal epithelium and certain cells of pyloric glands, while most of the epithelial cells in the(More)
