Effects of glucocorticoid excess on the sensitivity of glucose transport and metabolism to insulin in rat skeletal muscle.
GENBANK/dy examines the mechanisms of glucocorticoid-induced insulin resistance in rat soleus muscle. Glucocorticoid excess was induced by administration of dexamethasone to rats for 5 days.Expand

Insulin antagonizes AMP‐activated protein kinase activation by ischemia or anoxia in rat hearts, without affecting total adenine nucleotides
AMP‐activated protein kinase (AMPK) is known to be activated by phosphorylation on Thr172 in response to an increased AMP/ATP ratio. We report here that such an activation indeed occurred inExpand

The effects of insulin on transport and metabolism of glucose in skeletal muscle from hyperthyroid and hypothyroid rats
The effects of insulin on the rates of glucose disposal were studied in soleus muscles isolated from hyper‐ or hypothyroid rats. Treatment with triiodothyronine for 5 or 10 days decreased theExpand

Effects of insulin-like growth factor I on the rates of glucose transport and utilization in rat skeletal muscle in vitro.
1. The effects of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) on the rates of glucose transport and utilization and its interaction with insulin were investigated in rat soleus muscle in vitro. IGF-IExpand

Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene YMR291W/TDA1 mediates the in vivo phosphorylation of hexokinase isoenzyme 2 at serine‐15
Hxk2 is the predominant hexokinase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae during growth on glucose. In addition to its role in glycolysis, the enzyme is involved in glucose sensing and regulation of geneExpand

Control of adenine nucleotide metabolism and glycolysis in vertebrate skeletal muscle during exercise
The turnover of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in vertebrate skeletal muscle can increase more than a hundredfold during high-intensity exercise while the content of ATP in muscle may remain virtuallyExpand

Different modes of activating phosphofructokinase, a key regulatory enzyme of glycolysis, in working vertebrate muscle.
Glycolytic flux in white muscle can be increased several-hundredfold by exercise. Phosphofructokinase (PFK; EC is a key regulatory enzyme of glycolysis, but how its activity in muscle isExpand
