The aim of the present study was to investigate the GLUT4 protein expression during the development of obesity in monosodium glutamate- (MSG) treated mice. Control (C) and neonatally MSG-treated 2-month-old (2-mo), 4-month-old (4-mo) and 7-month-old (7-mo) mice were analyzed. Anthropometric data, basal glycemia and insulinemia were measured; and the GLUT4(More)
The GLUT4 transporter plays a key role in insulin-induced glucose uptake, which is impaired in insulin resistance. The objective of the present study was to investigate the tissue content and the subcellular distribution of GLUT4 protein in 4- to 12-year-old control, obese and insulin-treated diabetic mongrel female dogs (4 animals per group).
