Diabetes is associated with beta cell mass loss and islet dysfunctions. mTORC1 regulates beta cell survival, proliferation and function in physiological and pathological conditions, such as pregnancy and pancreatectomy. Here we show that deletion of Raptor, which is an essential component of mTORC1, in insulin-expressing cells promotes hypoinsulinemia and(More)
The impacts of thyroid hormones (TH) on lipid profile in euthyroid adults have gained much attention. It is currently unknown whether BMI influences such interaction. In the present study, we investigate the role of BMI in modulating the association between TH and lipid parameters in 1372 euthyroid healthy adults. Our results show that thyroid parameters(More)
BACKGROUND Compensation of the pancreatic β cell functional mass in response to metabolic stress is key to the pathogenesis of Type 2 Diabetes. The mTORC2 pathway governs fuel metabolism and β cell functional mass. It is unknown whether mTORC2 is required for regulating metabolic stress-induced β cell compensation. METHODS We challenged four-week-old(More)
