The effect of varying cellular oxygenation on L6 muscle cell 2-deoxy-D-glucose transport, glucose utilization, lactate production, and expression of GLUT1 and GLUT4 transport proteins was investigated. Incubation of L6 myotubes in 3% O2 (mimicking a state of hypoxia) elevated glucose uptake by 6.5-fold over 48 h relative to cells incubated in 21% O2(More)
Cells in which glucose uptake is rate limiting respond to hypoxic insults with an increase in glucose transport activity. To understand the underlying cellular mechanisms involved in this adaptive response, the effects of an uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation, 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP), and of an inhibitor of the electron transport chain, rotenone, were(More)
The potential of wild plants in Israel as sources of edible sprouts has not been investigated until now. Milk thistle (Silybum marianum L.) is native to the Mediterranean basin and is now widespread throughout the world; its young fleshy stems are traditionally eaten by the local Arab sector in Israel, and its sprouts are rich in antioxidants and have been(More)
