Angiotensin II-induced NADPH Oxidase Activation Impairs Insulin Signaling in Skeletal Muscle Cells*
The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been implicated in the development of insulin resistance and its related complications. There is also evidence thatExpand

Angiotensin II-induced skeletal muscle insulin resistance mediated by NF-kappaB activation via NADPH oxidase.
Reduced insulin sensitivity is a key factor in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Skeletal muscle insulin resistance is particularly important for its major role inExpand

Characterization of the yeast ionome: a genome-wide analysis of nutrient mineral and trace element homeostasis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
BackgroundNutrient minerals are essential yet potentially toxic, and homeostatic mechanisms are required to regulate their intracellular levels. We describe here a genome-wide screen for genesExpand

Zinc and the Msc2 zinc transporter protein are required for endoplasmic reticulum function
In this report, we show that zinc is required for endoplasmic reticulum function in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Zinc deficiency in this yeast induces the unfolded protein response (UPR), a systemExpand

NADPH Oxidase Contributes to Vascular Inflammation, Insulin Resistance, and Remodeling in the Transgenic (mRen2) Rat
Reduced insulin sensitivity is characteristic of various pathological conditions such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Angiotensin II, acting through its angiotensin type 1 receptor,Expand

Oxidative stress-mediated mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to angiotensin II-induced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in transgenic Ren2 rats.
Emerging evidence indicates that impaired mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation plays a key role in liver steatosis. We have recently demonstrated that increased angiotensin (ANG) II causesExpand

Effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms in β-amylase1 alleles from barley on functional properties of the enzymes ☆
Abstract Differences in extractable β-amylase (1,4-α-D-glucan maltohydrolase, EC activities exist between enzymes from malt and feed barleys (Hordeum vulgare L.). Others have documented fewExpand

Angiotensin II-induced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is mediated by oxidative stress in transgenic TG(mRen2)27(Ren2) rats.
BACKGROUND/AIMS Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common health problem and includes a spectrum of hepatic steatosis, steatohepatitis and fibrosis. The renin-angiotensin system (RAS)Expand

Overexpression, purification, and characterization of a barley alpha-glucosidase secreted by Pichia pastoris.
alpha-Glucosidases (EC are recognized as important in starch degradation during cereal seed germination. A barley (Hordeum vulgare) alpha-glucosidase expressed in Pichia pastoris wasExpand

Postnatal alterations of GABA receptor profiles in the rat superior colliculus
Midbrain sections taken from Sprague-Dawley rats of varying ages within the first four postnatal weeks were used to determine, immunocytochemically, putative changes of GABA(A) receptor beta2/3Expand
