Activation of glucose transport in skeletal muscle by phospholipase C and phorbol ester. Evaluation of the regulatory roles of protein kinase C and calcium.

It has been hypothesized on the basis of studies on BC3H-1 myocytes that diacylglycerol generation with activation of protein kinase C (PKC) is involved in the stimulation of glucose transport in muscle by insulin (Standaert, M. L., Farese, R. V., Cooper, R. D., and Pollet, R. J. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 8696-8705). In the present study, we used the rat… CONTINUE READING
