High‐fat diet‐induced hepatic steatosis reduces glucagon receptor content in rat hepatocytes: potential interaction with acute exercise

Liver lipid infiltration plays a role in reducing glucagon action in the liver through a reduction in total cellular and plasma membrane GR content and the GR desensitization observed in in vivo model of HF diet‐induced hepatic steatosis and in EX individuals may be regulated by PKC‐α.

The Characteristics of Hepatic Gsα-cAMP Axis in HSHF Diet-Fed Obese Insulin Resistance Rats and Genetic Diabetic Mice.

A positive correlation between hepatic Gsα-cAMP signal axis and FBG in slight IR stage of HSHF-diet rats and diabetic db/db mice is revealed, which suggested hepatic CAMP play a central role in regulating of FBG during the developing and development of T2DM.

Regulation of fat metabolism in the liver: link to non-alcoholic hepatic steatosis and impact of physical exercise

Physical exercise would interfere with the development of hepatic steatosis by stimulating lipid oxidation and inhibiting lipid synthesis in liver through the activation of the AMP-activated protein kinase pathway.

Hypocaloric high-protein diet improves fatty liver and hypertriglyceridemia in sucrose-fed obese rats via two pathways.

A hypocaloric high-protein diet improves fatty liver and hypertriglyceridemia effectively relative to a carbohydrate diet and the two cellular pathways at work behind these benefits include stimulation of hepatic lipolysis and lipid utilization mediated by FGF21 and reduction of Hepatic VLDL-TG production by SCD1 regulation.

The glucagon receptor is required for the adaptive metabolic response to fasting.

The metabolic actions of glucagon revisited

The ability of glucagon to stimulate energy expenditure, along with its hypolipidemic and satiating effects, make this hormone an attractive pharmaceutical agent for the treatment of dyslipidemia and obesity.

Putative Factors That MayModulate the Effect of Exercise on Liver Fat : Insights from Animal Studies

Results from exercise training studies in animals highlight a number of potential factors that could possibly mediate the effect of exercise on liver fat, but none of them has been formally tested in man and the potential importance of these factors remains obscure.

Evidence of hepatic glucagon resistance associated with hepatic steatosis: reversal effect of training.

The present results indicate that the feeding of a high-fat diet induces a state of hepatic glucagon resistance, which is partially attenuated by concurrent exercise training, and it is suggested that liver lipid infiltration may interfere with the action of glucagon, thus inducing glucagon Resistance in liver.

Mechanism of Hepatic Insulin Resistance in Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease*

The hypothesis hepatic steatosis leads to hepatic insulin resistance by stimulating gluconeogenesis and activating PKC-ϵ and JNK1, which may interfere with tyrosine phosphorylation of IRS-1 and IRS-2 and impair the ability of insulin to activate glycogen synthase is supported.

Preserved direct hepatic insulin action in rats with diet-induced hepatic steatosis.

Recent in vivo studies have demonstrated a strong negative correlation between liver triglyceride content and hepatic insulin sensitivity, but a causal relationship remains to be established. We

The effect of exercise training on glucose tolerance and skeletal muscle triacylglycerol content in rats fed with a high-fat diet.

It is concluded that beneficial metabolic effects of training are impaired in high-fat fed rats and that training does not completely reverse metabolic disturbances in this group of animals.

Influence of prior exercise and liver glycogen content on the sensitivity of the liver to glucagon.

It is concluded that hyperglucagonemia-induced HGP is stimulated by a prior period of exercise, suggesting an increased sensitivity of the liver to glucagon during exercise.

Concurrent exercise prevents high-fat-diet-induced macrovesicular hepatic steatosis.

It is concluded that, after a HF-diet regimen of 8 wk in rats, hepatic steatosis occurs primarily via the accumulation of lipid as macrovesicles.

As a counterregulatory hormone for insulin, glucagon plays a critical role in maintaining glucose homeostasis in vivo in both animals and humans and has been pursued extensively in recent years as potential targets for the therapeutic treatment of diabetes.

Disordered fat storage and mobilization in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

Although there is now evidence that weight loss through reduction of caloric intake and increase in physical activity can prevent the development of diabetes, it remains an open question as to whether specific modulation of fat metabolism will result in improvement in some or all of the above metabolic derangements or will prevent progression from insulin resistance syndrome to type 2 diabetes.

Attenuation of age-related declines in glucagon-mediated signal transduction in rat liver by exercise training.

It is concluded that age-related declines in glucagon signaling capacity and responsiveness may be attributed, in part, to declines in intrinsic AC activity and changes in G protein [inhibitory G protein (G(i))/G(s)] ratios.
