Causal linkage between insulin suppression of lipolysis and suppression of liver glucose output in dogs.


Suppression of hepatic glucose output (HGO) has been shown to be primarily mediated by peripheral rather than portal insulin concentrations; however, the mechanism by which peripheral insulin suppresses HGO has not yet been determined. Previous findings by our group indicated a strong correlation between free fatty acids (FFA) and HGO, suggesting that… (More)
