Mild Electrical Stimulation with Heat Shock Ameliorates Insulin Resistance via Enhanced Insulin Signaling
Low-intensity electrical current (or mild electrical stimulation; MES) influences signal transduction and activates phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway. Because insulin resistance is… Expand

Mild electrical stimulation increases ubiquitinated proteins and Hsp72 in A549 cells via attenuation of proteasomal degradation.
To explore the cellular effects of mild electrical stimulation (MES), we treated A549 cells with low-intensity direct current at 5 V applied for 10 min. MES did not induce cell cytotoxicity or the… Expand
