Glucose is an important fuel for rat brown adipose tissue in vivo and its utilization is highly sensitive to insulin. In this study, the different glucose metabolic pathways and their regulation by insulin and norepinephrine were examined in isolated rat brown adipocytes, using [6-14C]glucose as a tracer. Glucose utilization was stimulated for insulin(More)
The effect of insulin on glucose metabolism in mammary gland was studied by the euglycaemic/hyperinsulinaemic-clamp technique. Measurement of metabolite concentrations and enzyme activities in the mammary gland suggests two sites of action of insulin: phosphofructokinase-1 and acetyl-coA carboxylase. The increase in phosphofructokinase-1 activity could be(More)
The mechanism responsible for the insulin resistance described in vivo in brown adipose tissue (BAT) of lactating rats was investigated. The effect of insulin on glucose metabolism was studied on isolated brown adipocytes of non-lactating and lactating rats. Insulin stimulation of total glucose metabolism is 50% less in brown adipocytes from lactating than(More)
This work aims at studying the optimization of an on-line capillary electrophoresis (CE)-based tryptic digestion methodology for the analysis of therapeutic polypeptides (PP). With this methodology, a mixture of surrogate peptide fragments and amino acid were produced on-line by trypsin cleavage (enzymatic digestion) and subsequently analyzed using the same(More)
