Akt and cAMP response element binding protein mediate 17β-estradiol regulation of glucose transporter 3 expression in human SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cell line.


Impaired glucose uptake is involved in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and glucose transporter 3 (Glut3) is the major neuronal glucose transporter. Estrogens contribute its theorized protective role against AD. The present studies aimed to examine the effect of 17β-estradiol (E2, the natural estrogen) on Glut3 expression and the underlying mechanisms by using… (More)
