Glucose transport in lymphocytes is regulated by many agents. It is interesting if only changing glucose concentrations in environment involves the impact on glucose uptake. The aims of this study were to investigate the impact of changing glucose concentrations in medium on deoxy-d-glucose uptake and what these conditions impact on the percent of cells(More)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is linked to increased risk of insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus in patients' later life. The aim of this study was to investigate uptake of deoxy-D-glucose by peripheral blood lymphocytes of PCOS patients with normal fasting plasma glucose and normal glucose tolerance test. The study involved 20 patients with PCOS(More)
BACKGROUND Salmon (Salmo salar L.) myofibryllar protein (MP) and sarcoplasmic protein (SP) were digested with human gastric and duodenal juices and hydrolysed in vitro with commercial pepsin and Corolase PP. RESULTS The digestion after duodenal juice/Corolase PP caused almost complete breakdown of peptide bonds in MP and SP. The DPPH(•) scavenging(More)
Leptin shows pleiotropic effects in organisms including an important role in the regulation of glucose homeostasis. Elevated serum leptin, particularly in obese individuals, is a warning sign of energy imbalance, hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance and other metabolic risk factors that are strongly associated with type 2 diabetes. Obesity is also related(More)
CONTEXT Insulin is one of the most-known factors that influence the intensity of cell-bound glucose transport. However, in order to react to this hormone, a cell needs specific receptors present in its membrane. The aim of this work was to investigate the insulin receptor expression in B and T cells under incubation with pathological glucose concentrations,(More)
