Modulation of insulin resistance in ovariectomized rats by endurance exercise training and estrogen replacement.
Estrogen is known to play a role in fat metabolism, but its role in carbohydrate metabolism remains controversial. We investigated alterations in carbohydrate and fat metabolism after prolongedExpand

Oxidant stress-induced loss of IRS-1 and IRS-2 proteins in rat skeletal muscle: role of p38 MAPK.
Oxidative stress is characterized as an imbalance between the cellular production of oxidants and the cellular antioxidant defenses and contributes to the development of numerous cardiovascular andExpand

Oxidant stress and skeletal muscle glucose transport: roles of insulin signaling and p38 MAPK.
Oxidative stress can impact the regulation of glucose transport activity in a variety of cell lines. In the present study, we assessed the direct effects of an oxidant stress on the glucose transportExpand

Interactions of exercise training and alpha-lipoic acid on insulin signaling in skeletal muscle of obese Zucker rats.
We have shown previously (Saengsirisuwan V, Kinnick TR, Schmit MB, and Henriksen EJ. J Appl Physiol 91: 145-153, 2001) that the antioxidant R-(+)-alpha-lipoic acid (R-ALA), combined with enduranceExpand

Modulation of insulin resistance and hypertension by voluntary exercise training in the TG(mREN2)27 rat.
Hypertension is often accompanied by insulin resistance of skeletal muscle glucose transport. The male heterozygous TG(mREN2)27 rat, which harbors a mouse transgene for renin, displays localExpand
