Evidence for 5′AMP-Activated Protein Kinase Mediation of the Effect of Muscle Contraction on Glucose Transport
The intracellular signaling proteins that lead to exercise-stimulated glucose transport in skeletal muscle have not been identified, although it is clear that there are separate signaling mechanismsExpand

Ghrelin, an endogenous growth hormone secretagogue, is a novel orexigenic peptide that antagonizes leptin action through the activation of hypothalamic neuropeptide Y/Y1 receptor pathway.
Ghrelin, an endogenous ligand for growth hormone secretagogue (GHS) receptor originally isolated from the stomach, occurs in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus and may play a role in energyExpand

Development of spontaneous uterine tumors in low molecular mass polypeptide-2 knockout mice.
The presentation of antigenic peptides by MHC class I molecules is important for tumor rejection by CTLs. Such antigenic peptides are generated as a result of the degradation of intracellularExpand

Unique association of p53 mutations with undifferentiated but not with differentiated carcinomas of the thyroid gland.
Thyroid neoplasms show a wide variety of lesions varying from slowly growing differentiated adenocarcinomas to rapidly proliferating undifferentiated carcinomas. There has been some histopathologicalExpand

Metabolic stress and altered glucose transport: activation of AMP-activated protein kinase as a unifying coupling mechanism.
5'AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) can be activated in response to cellular fuel depletion and leads to switching off ATP-consuming pathways and switching on ATP-regenerating pathways in many cellExpand

AMP-activated protein kinase activity and glucose uptake in rat skeletal muscle.
The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) has been hypothesized to mediate contraction and 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide 1-beta-D-ribonucleoside (AICAR)-induced increases in glucose uptake in skeletalExpand

Exercise regulation of glucose transport in skeletal muscle.
Exercise increases the rate of glucose uptake into the contracting skeletal muscles. This effect of exercise is similar to the action of insulin on glucose uptake, and the mechanism through whichExpand

NOD mice are defective in proteasome production and activation of NF-kappaB.
The nonobese diabetic (NOD) mouse is an animal model of human type I diabetes with a strong genetic component that maps to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) of the genome. We have identifiedExpand

Surgery-induced insulin resistance in human patients: relation to glucose transport and utilization.
To investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms for surgery-induced insulin resistance in skeletal muscle, six otherwise healthy patients undergoing total hip replacement were studied before,Expand

Role of defective apoptosis in type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases.
Lymphocyte development, selection, and education are strictly controlled to prevent autoimmunity, with potentially autoreactive cells being removed by apoptosis. Dysregulation of apoptosis is aExpand
